Hellboy, Ron Perlman, Hellboy 3, Hellboy 2: The Golden Army

Guillermo Del Toro is one of the busiest directors alive, so much so that Variety reports that he is booked through at least 2017. His line up of films includes the “Lord of the Rings” prequel “The Hobbit”, remakes of such classic films as “Frankenstein”, “Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde”, and “Slaughterhouse-Five”, an adaptation of the novel “Drood” and H.P. Lovecraft’s “At the Mountains of Madness”, and hopefully… “Hellboy 3”.

“We laid the groundwork to have a magnificent third act,” the acclaimed director told the publication, who also went on to reveal that “the studio is interested and may work with del Toro to add a TV series and online segments to broaden the following before making the series finale.”

Hopefully they will also continue to make animated films, following on the successful DTV releases of “The Phantom Claw”, “Blood and Iron”, “Sword of Storms”, and video games; “Hellboy: The Science of Evil” was released at the end of June and featured all of the cast members from the films.

That would give us a wide variety of “Hellboy” content over the next dozen years, including a TV series, online shorts, animated films, video games, and the end of the film trilogy. And I for one, could not be happier.

Will Angelina Jolie be Catwoman in Batman 3?

“I think that this franchise has shown that it doesn’t have to bring back characters. I mean, there’s still Catwoman. I’ve heard Angelina Jolie really wants to do Catwoman; I think that’s a fantastic idea. I’ll be a happy audience member this time.”

AICN’s Beaks talked to Aaron Eckhart at the press junket for Alan Ball’s “Towelhead” and he had some very interesting things to say about both his character Harvey Dent/Two-Face and some possible details on the next Batman film.Have you heard that Angelina Jolie wants to be Catwoman in Nolan’s next Batman film? Because I hadn’t heard that. Sounds like some insider info to me. And while I absolutely hate Jolie, I think she is perfect for the hooker turned criminal turned crimefighter who wears some very tight spandex.

Kelly Taylor and her son Sammy, on 90210

For anyone doubting the return of the world’s most famous zip code to TV, the show’s premiere is the highest-rated debut on the CW ever with over 5 million viewers. You can read detailed breakdowns of the premiere’s ratings on Adweek and EW. What I want to focus on is that the episode was good, really good.

For 2 hours, it felt like “Beverley Hills, 90210” never ended.  The show remained true to its roots, while still remaining fresh and introducing us to a whole new crop of characters.  The nods to the old series were sprinked throughout the first two episodes and the growing mystery of who is the father of Kelly Taylor’s son (could it be Brandon, Dylan, or someone new?) added a great dynamic to the show. I’m going to keep watching, will you?

If you have some free time, you might be interested in heading over to Erin Silver’s blog, The Vicious Circle, as seen in the show. The blog features some of Silver’s thoughts and she shares all new pictures (including the one at the top of this post!).

Bruce Campbell in My Name is Bruce

AICN has posted the awesome one-sheet for “My Name is Bruce”, a new horror comedy from Dark Horse Entertainment. In the movie, cult hero Bruce Campbell portrays cult hero Bruce Campbell who “is mistaken for his character Ash from the Evil Dead trilogy and forced to fight a real monster in a small town in Oregon.”  Also fighting the monster is Ted Raimi. The film was directed by Campbell from a script by Mark Verheiden.

You can check out the full poster here, and then watch the film’s trailer here. The film will be getting a limited release on October 30th, in the US. I don’t care where I have to drive, I’ll be there!

Daniel Craig is James Bond in Quantum of Solace, the 22nd James Bond film. The movie follows 007, James Bond on a personal mission of vengeance.

Dead Rising is coming to the Wii, with hack and slash gameplay

One of my favorite games on the X-Box 360 is coming to the Wii! “Dead Rising: Chop Til You Drop” follows the story of “Frank West, an overly zealous freelance journalist on a hunt for the scoop of a lifetime. In pursuit of a juicy lead, he makes his way to the small suburban town of Willamette only to find that it has become overrun by zombies. Frank escapes to the local shopping mall” where the real fun begins (Source: IGN).

While the graphics might not be as slick as they were on the 360, the Wii offers a way for gamers to enter the zombie infested mall in a whole new way as you’ll have to hack/slash and point/shoot the Wii controller at the flesh eaters to survive. With 10,000 zombies coming at you, I can only imagine how tired your arm will be after a few hours of gameplay. Keep reading to watch a video showcasing the gameplay (gory/graphic violence).

I was checking out a mix of videos on Pwn or Die (dot) com when I found this hysterical Mortal Kombat spoof video, “Mortal Kombat – Finish Him!”

In the video, “The Emperor of Outworld is out for more than blood as Sub Zero and Liu Kang fight to the death.” The graphics and acting are top notch and perfectly match the original game’s look, feel, and voice over commands.
