I hope so. 2 was probably one of the most visually beautiful movies ever made. Plot was meh, but it was so, utterly gorgeous.
 
2012-07-16 09:23:24 PM  
I'm in. Pretty much Guillermo del Toro has my vote no matter what.
 
2012-07-16 10:02:47 PM  
Not formulaic enough for Hollywood.
 
2012-07-16 10:09:43 PM  
Another vote for this. As much as I loved The Dark Knight, I still think it was a shame that Hellboy 2 got overshadowed by it. Del Toro deserves more respect than he gets.
 
2012-07-16 10:12:04 PM  
I thought he was doing In the Mountains of Madness.
 
2012-07-16 10:12:42 PM  
Yes, please.

Mugato: I thought he was doing In the Mountains of Madness.


Maybe. He's worried that some of the ideas in it are too close to those in Prometheus.

"I think we may still make it. When I'm brave enough to go and see Prometheus, I'll know," Del Toro revealed. "But for now, I don't know. We are all nothing but human beings. I go to the theatre, I buy my ticket for Prometheus and I go and see something else because I'm afraid. I'm not a mental entity, I am also emotional because the ideas are similar, from what I've heard, and I'll see it next week, I promise!"

Any thing HellBoy needs to happen as long as Pearlman is in costume.
 
2012-07-16 11:16:33 PM  
I'm OK with this...

Or doing the voice.

Sword of Storms and Blood and Iron are uber cool also
 
2012-07-16 11:25:53 PM  
I wonder if that make a wish wish Pearlman did as Hellboy we learned about here a week or two ago helped change his mind. I seem to remember something about his being fed up with the marathon make-up sessions by the end of shooting for 2.

/ and hell yea I'll go see more Hellboy.
 
2012-07-16 11:59:31 PM  
Yes please.

Whew. I thought he walked whend they insisted on a PG-13 Movie

Hellboy was awesome. I'm glad I didn't listen to the middling reviews.
 
2012-07-17 02:33:50 AM  
They need to worry about getting a director's cut of Hellboy 2 made. That movie... I don't know what happened in the third act, but it crashed and burned.
 
2012-07-17 02:37:28 AM  
I love Hellboy and the first movie was pretty damn good, but I think the 2nd was fairly average. Beautiful sure, but not compelling beyond that and not very true to the comics. Personally I feel that both movies could do without a love interest for ol' Red. He's really not supposed to be pining and whining for anyone.

But man, can del Toro cast a movie. Ron Perlman was born to play Hellboy.

I would really like to see this movie made:

Shame the TV series never got off the ground.

SphericalTime: I hope so. 2 was probably one of the most visually beautiful movies ever made. Plot was meh, but it was so, utterly gorgeous.


I just hope they get the money from the studio in advance. The ending of the second film suffered because they had their budget cut at the last minute and had to give up a week of shooting and a lot of post-production CGI.
 
2012-07-17 03:34:30 AM  
As someone who loves visuals and hates comic-book story lines, YES, PLEASE. Great cinema, great acting, great films.

Ah. I was wondering what had happened compared to the rest of the movie.

If you want a visually gorgeous film with a decent plot, check out The Fall. The cinematography is near perfection, and they did it with supposedly no CGI.

There were funding shenanigans at the studio resulting in dickery.

Does not change the fact that to this day I can't hear that Manilow song anymore without breaking into giggles, that sequence alone was worth my ten bucks and more. If they want to crowdsource movie 3 to avoid similiar nonsense I would totally kick in a few tenners. Hell, if they make one of the stretch goals "NOT IN MOTHERfarkING 3 GODDAMNED D EYE-SEARING DARK-ASS BLURRY BULLshiat" I would even be tempted to kick in a couple hundred.
 
2012-07-17 04:22:33 AM  
Dooooo iiiiit.

Hellboy is easily my favourite comic book movie series.
 
2012-07-17 05:07:52 AM  
If you haven't read the originalswww.assoc-amazon.com then you're missing out.
 
2012-07-17 06:01:11 AM  
Count me in. 2nd movie was too complicated, but I'm hopeful the 3rd will be better.

That linked story to Perlman donning the full Hellboy costume for a make a wish kid is pretty damn awesome. Ron has always been one of my favorite actors but that type of thing elevates him even further. Definitely want to see him in a 3rd Hellboy.


On a side note, the villain in the second Hellboy film made me think that del Toro could probably do a fantastic showing of R.A. Salvatore's Drizzt .

Thanks for the recommendation. It's on Netflix instant watch. I'm going to check it out tonight.

That's Tarsem Singh. All his movies are the same way. Visually stunning, really boring. The Cell, The Fall, Immortals and recently Mirror, Mirror.
 
2012-07-17 08:01:55 AM  
Do it! If they want to resolve the will-he-or-won't-he End the World story, I must see this.
 
2012-07-17 08:02:00 AM  
It would be great if they could. The first two suffered from too many story lines but if there's one comic they should make a non-origin movie reboot of and if it can't be HATE then it should Hellboy.

Oh, holy crap. Are you married to me? My husband's man-crush on Drizzt is friggin' decades old.

If anyone could turn that into a trilogy, he could.
 
2012-07-17 08:58:22 AM  
Hellboy? Meh. I'd rather he work on non-english movies. Those are the ones worth watching.

It's not gay if it's an elf.

It would be gay even if the elf was a girl.

It's a drow elf. I have been lectured many times on the vast differences.

Rule still applies. A drow is still an elf and it doesn't count as gay if it's an elf.

Make a Wish Foundation to Perlman: "6 year old kid battling Leukemia would love to meet Hellboy in Person. You up for it?"

62 year old Perlman: "Yeah, no problem."

4 hours in make-up and then spends the day with the kid. Simply awesome. Hero tag appropriate for this. RDJ stepping out on stage during a kids Ironman costume contest, not so much.

I'm sure he'll get right on it, after Mountains of Madness.

And The Haunted Mansion.

And The Hobbit.
 
2012-07-17 10:24:07 AM  
Put Ron Perlman in costume. Film it "documentary" style and just have him wandering around the city for a few days in character. Retrofit some monsters into the footage. Call it "Hellboy's Day Out".

I was wondering the same thing.

How about a compromise. "Hellboy and The Mountains of Madness" wherein Hellboy takes on the elder gods in their home turf.

ElusiveWookiee: I'm sure he'll get right on it, after Mountains of Madness.

No one would put up funding for Mountains.

Disney got cold feet (and was worried about budget) on Haunted Mansion

Not really sure about the Hobbit, but it never seemed like his heart was in it.

/There are three ways to be a director in Hollywood:

1) Be a whore and make a lot of movies, some of them maybe good (John Houston)

2) Stick to your guns and make few films, fighting for years to get them made (Scorsese, etc)

3) Some combination of the two (John Ford's "one for the studio, one for me)

(There's also the Kubrick/Woody Allen thing where you tell Hollywood to go fark itself and they still give you money.

(I can't explain Chris Nolan's career.)

So basically, he's Michael Bay (gobsmacking cinematography) without the booms-tits-splosions, misogyny and racism. I'll take it. Did he really do 'The Cell' though? I thought that was a McG production all these years.... doesn't matter. 'The Cell' was gorgeous, and should have been a silent movie. Very creepy. The plot needed tightening though, you're right.

Saw Immortals recently. I'd have loved to have seen that as a weekly series, or a mini series (so as to prevent bloat), so that the full background of all the characters and the gods and the titans were fully fleshed out. That ending scene in the sky looked like Hell, not Heaven though ;) unless you're a Viking, but hey.

I'd probably pay money for this. As long as it was rated R. Hellboy is not G rated, or even PG-13.

There's a proper name, an adjective and a noun I don't think I've ever seen in that sequence.

Let's go with "Unrated" and get it banned by the Pope.
