Red, Liz and Abe are back. In Guillermo del Toro’s first movie since the award-winning ‘Pan’s Labyrinth,’ the big red guy with the Right Hand of Doom again does battle with the evil folks trying to rule the world. [Read more…]
Universal Studios, one of the studios who backed HDVD has announced their first releases for Blu-Ray DVD.
The studio will release ‘Doomsday’ along with 40 other titles later this year. Also on the slate for the holiday season are a bunch of the studio’s big summer releases including ‘The Incredible Hulk,’ ‘Hellboy II,’ ‘Mama Mia,’ and the fourth ‘Mummy’ movie. (Fear not, the first three ‘Mummy’ movies are also on the release schedule.)
No word on when some of the classic Universal movies will be hitting high def.
It seems to be a growing trend to introduce your superhero sequel with an in-between story before the film launches. Guillermo del Torro’s upcoming ‘Hellboy II: The Golden Army’ is no exception. This time it is a comic book that will lead into this summer’s potential blockbuster. The 16-page book is being penned by Mike Mingola based off of a story by del Torro and will be distributed at conventions. A sample of the book can be found on the official Hellboy II website.
I wasn’t a huge fan of the first Hellboy and a 16-page comic book doesn’t really get me excited, but Guillermo has lots of street cred built up with me, so I’ll be checking this film out when it’s released this July.
