The original Hellboy movies hold a strong and passionate fanbase. Ron Perlman cemented himself in fans minds as Hellboy. Admittedly, Perlman is a tough act to follow. But David Harbour (Stranger Things) steps up to give it a shot. The first trailer for the new Hellboy is receiving mixed reviews – some are excited for the continuing of the franchise, while others feel that if it’s not Perlman andb then it’s not worth watching. With heavy hitters like Milla Jovovich, Ian McShane, Daniel Dae Kim and relative newcomer Sasha Lane, the new Hellboy has a lot of potential. But can it get past the initial fan backlash? What are the fans biggest complaints? Check out the trailer and judge for yourself.
The upcoming R-rated reboot of Hellboy (Hellboy: Rise of the Blood Queen) is moving along. This time, instead of Del Toro, director Neil Marshall will take the reins of the film with Stranger Things’ David Harbour filling in Ron Pearlman’s big red shoes. Recently, Ian McShane was also cast as Professor Broom as well, so the movie’s coming along. The one thing missing so far was who was going to be Hellboy’s main big baddie. From the comics, one of Hellboy’s enemies was the Blood Queen, AKA Nimue the Lady of the Lake. But who could play the role with perfection, terror, and be able to be a conceivable threat against such a towering figure of Harbour? Lucky for us, it looks like we have found our Blood Queen…
It feels like just yesterday that we brought you the 16 second teaser for the final chapter in Alice’s story, Resident Evil: The Final Chapter, and it was. Today the 49 second International teaser hit the Internet with a lot more footage to look at. The Resident Evil franchise is an interesting one. Starting in 2002, the franchise has consistently made money at the box office while never topping a Rotten Tomatoes score of 33 from the critics. Milla Jovovich returns again as Alice, kicking ass and taking names in the post T-Virus world. (more…)
Word is that the first full trailer for Resident Evil: The Final Chapter will hit the Internet next week as the teaser makes the Internet rounds today. Milla Jovovich is back for another paycheck as Alice, the unstoppable killing machine. It is refreshing to see a franchise continue through six films without rebooting. There’s still work to do and in this teaser Alice makes a promise. (more…)
When we last left Alice and friends at the end of Resident Evil: Retribution, they were brought before Wesker at the White House in order to make one last stand in the name of humanity. From there, Resident Evil: The Final Chapter will begin, but the more compelling question is, where will it end? It would be insane to think that everything would end happily ever after, but it’s at least possible that some of the characters will survive till the bitter end. Might Alice be one of them? Might the following picture released on social media be a clue as to the fate of everyone’s favorite zombie fighter not named Daryl Dixon? (more…)
Most fans gave up on the Resident Evil movies after the first one. Yet, with one goofy and ridiculous sequel after another, they keep making them. The franchise is like the zombies and monsters from which they feature… they just keep coming and coming. Will there ever been an end?
Well, actually, yeah there will be. Returning Resident Evil franchise star Ali Larter (who will play Claire Redfield for the third time) promises the upcoming Resident Evil 6 will actually mark the end of the franchise. (more…)
Anyone that’s seen enough video game movies knows that this particular genre is fraught with difficulties. Mostly they consist of bad scripts, lousy actors and directors with their heads up their asses. One of the better franchises is the Resident Evil series. They were nothing to write home about, of course, but at least they didn’t suck so bad that you wanted your money back. Unfortunately, even the little bit of goodness that showed up in the first of these films faded quickly as they got progressively worse. Now it looks like the powers-that-be are finally ready to pull the plug on the franchise and they’re going out with one final installment of Resident Evil. Read on for what details we’ve managed to find. (more…)
With ‘True Blood’ having met its maker, somebody thinks we need hot vampires on TV again, and ‘The Strain’ just won’t do that. And when I say hot, I just mean normal-looking, unlike those freaks in Guillermo del Toro’s madhouse opus. Throw in a few werewolves (hopefully they won’t be represented as just big dogs) and screw it, might as well just adapt ‘Underworld’ to the small screen. But then, someone somewhere else is thinking, “Know what television needs? More zombies.” Cast a female ass-kicker because they’re the hot topic these days, and BAM! Might as well just adapt ‘Resident Evil’ to the small screen too! However these projects came about, I’d love to have eavesdropped during the meetings that assumed series stars Kate Beckinsale and Milla Jovovich would be on board. Aren’t they? (more…)
Resident Evil fans already knew another movie was in the works, because love it or not, the Resident Evil movie franchise is a money-maker, and money makers get sequels. The good news is that the creative force behind the entire series of movies Paul Anderson, is still fully in charge of the script and about to get started on the yet unnamed Resident Evil 6 script. (more…)
Sweet Zombie Jesus! PLEASE tell me this is a practical joke. (the poster is fake, at least: it’s by tclarke597 of Deviantart.) Only the brave should follow me after the jump.
