Hellboy_3_72167

A third Hellboy movie is not likely to happen. If it were, we would have gotten one by now.

Probability be dammed! Hellboy himself, Ron Perlman, has been making noise and knocking down doors make Hellboy 3 a reality. Just a few weeks ago, the actor hit up social media in the hopes of getting the idea trending; stating in a tweet “Anybody out there wanna see #HellboyIII as much as I do? Let’s get this muthafucka trending, y’all! Let’s end the trilogy; we earned it”. Later several of his co-stars followed suit with retweets and along with their own call-to-action.

Now the rally continues. In a recent interview with Variety, Perlman talks more about the project and says that the story for the third chapter is mind-blowing.   (more…)

The prevailing success of Phil Lord and Chris Miller continues. Thanks to the smash hit that was The LEGO Movie and the unusual television comedy The Last Man on Earth, these two film/TV developers have earned the right to pretty much make anything they want. So how about a new comedy for Fox about an animated barbarian who returns to his live-action family? Sure, why not! (more…)

Games, games, games, and more games. You’d expect nothing less from Electronic Arts Expo (E3) ’cause, well, it is the biggest video game convention after all. But,this year has truly been one of the best in way of announcements and mouth dropping trailers. Microsoft, Playstation, and Nintendo all have new systems that have been out for a few years. Developers are now really catching up to the new platforms. There are so many titles rolling out between now and 2016.

Yesterday, we rounded up all the trailers and announcements for Microsoft, Ubisoft, and Playstation. Now we put together all the visual splendor from Nintendo.

While the Wii U didn’t get much reception upon its initial release, it has been trending lately thanks to those wonderfully cute Amiibos and the smash hit Splatoon. Then, of course, there’s Nintendo 3DS – the handheld gaming device that has stood the test of time.

Nintendo already hit up E3 at the start of the opening day announcing what games are launching for the near future. Here’s a roundup of some of the news and games Nintendo has been showing this week.:  (more…)

This is turning out to be the most exciting E3 in ages. All the major players have come out in full-force. If you thought Microsoft and Ubisoft toggled your joystick, wait until you see what’s next. Well… you don’t have to wait – a new challenger enters. It’s Sony! The purveyors of the Playstation revealed more on their upcoming line-up, including The Last Guardian (coming in 2016 to the PlayStation 4), Horizon Zero Dawn, Hitman, Final Fantasy VII Remake, Call of Duty: Black Ops III, Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End and more. Watch the reveal trailer below: (more…)

Maleficent01

The recent string of live-action fairy tales – usually twists on classic stories in an attempt to provide extra depth – hasn’t been all that critically successful. Films like Alice in Wonderland and Cinderella earned Disney piles of cash, but neither surpassed or even equaled the quality of their source material or the more well-known adaptation. Still, they’re gonna keep making em’. They’re an easy sell – a way to continue cashing in on established brands. There’s literally no new fairy tales, so of course they’re gonna keep tapping the same well.

This latest announcement, though, may have you groaning a little louder and a little more confused than usual.

Disney is planning a Maleficent sequel! Because of course. (more…)

George Miller’s Mad Max Fury Road is truly one of the most unique and adrenaline-fueled action films created to date. It’s packed with memorable and enjoyable characters and, of course, suped up monster cars. It’s filled with all the required thrills and spills – an all-out rush of visceral, kinetic power.

Avalanche Studios are hoping to do the same with gaming consoles this September with the release of their Mad Max video game. Can they live up to the movie? Watch the latest full trailer and decide for yourself.

A lot of Star Wars video game news came out of the E3  today. Electronic Arts is getting in on a galaxy far far away, on two fronts.
