‘Hellboy’ Reboot Director Says It Will Be R-Rated, Bloody, Have Practical Effects


The first two film adaptations ofMike Mignola's Hellboy comic series, directed by Guillermo del Toro and starring Ron Perlman in the title role, were not the greatest financial and critical successes. They did okay, especiallyHellboy II: The Golden Army, but not as well as hoped. Still, the movies have a faithful fan following who were upset to learn that instead of a third movie with del Toro and Perlman, the franchisewas to be rebootedwithStranger ThingsstarDavid Harbourtaking over for Perlman in what's currently titledHellboy: Rise of the Blood Queen.

So how do you win over those skeptical fans of the original movies, and get them on board with the reboot? Well, a great start is to say it's going to be R-rated, bloody, and use as little CGI as possible, as directorNeil Marshall(The Descent, Game of Thrones) said recently [...]

Baby Driver
Director: Edgar Wright
Screenwriters: Edgar Wright
Cast: Ansel Elgort, Kevin Spacey, Lily James, Jon Bernthal, Eiza González, Jon Hamm, Jamie Foxx
Distributor:Tristar Pictures
Rated PG| 113 Minutes
Release Date: June 28, 2017

Edgar Wright'sBaby Drivercan be best described as a musically charged gangster film full of colorful zany characters all looking to make a big score. If Wright could write music - and he probably could - they would look, sound, and feel like this movie.

While recent car chasing heist flicks have been focusing on the big action set-piece spectacle that may look spectacular but lacks spirit and heart,Baby Driverproves that you don't need to jump out of planes (be it exploding or not) to be hip and cool. You just need a driver, the girl of your dreams, music, and the road to travel to some unknown destination [...]

Spider-Man: Homecoming Starbucks Pranks

We're just a little over a week from the launch of the first movie in Sony Pictures' latest reboot of theSpider-Manfranchise,Spider-Man: Homecoming, this time with a little help from Marvel.

To help promote the movie a fun little prank was set up, as is quite the popular viral marketing technique these days. For this one, customers at a Starbucks in New York City are first confused when the barista calls out Spider-Man's name for an order, and then surprised when Spidey himself drops down from the ceiling to pick it up. There's even a cameo from a familiar face.

It's been almost exactly a year since I wrote areviewextolling the virtues ofRachel Dunne's debut novelIn The Shadow Of The Gods. I heaped praise upon it for the beautiful setting and extensive world building that she had created. It is therefore safe to assume that I was not at all hesitant to dive into the sequel so as to write a review prior to the release. Unfortunately, my expectations were set too high it seems.The Bones Of The Earthwas not at all what I expected [...]

Air date: Monday, June 26th, 2017, 9pm

Preacher’s second season on AMC is NOT wasting time with two episodes in two nights. The opening ten minutes of Sunday night’s premiere was just awesome, combining all the elements thatPreacherfans have come to expect; quick witted dialogue, hellacious and gory violence, and screwball comedy. Jesse (Dominic Cooper), Tulip (Ruth Negga) and Cassidy (Joseph Gilgun) are on the road searching for God. Meanwhile the Saint of Killers (Graham McTavish) is searching for them, and he’s leaving no stone unturned. The trio ended up in a fleabag motel and in a touching moment, Jesse literally broke down the door for Tulip. But alas, you can’t relax for long when you’re being stalked by a cowboy from Hell.

WARNING: Spoilers for Episode 2.2 ofPreacher....[...]
