The first two books in The Strain Trilogy were a bit hit or miss for me. I enjoyed the concept behind the two but at times it seemed a bit formulaic. That being said I look forward to seeing how the third book in the series “The Night Eternal” wraps up the story. Pick it up when it hits stores on 10-25-2011 and check out the synopsis below.
From the authors of the instant New York Times bestsellers The Strain and The Fall comes the final volume in one of the most electrifying thriller series in years.
Check out some of the sketches that director Guillermo Del Toro has made for his previous movies. This video gives us an in-depth look at some of the creatures from Hellboy 2 and Pan’s Labyrinth.
The man behind some of the most creative, and uniquely designed monsters to ever grace the big screen has given us an inside look into his sketch book which contains the drawings for all of his ideas for different characters and monsters.
We get a look at the Elemental and Angel of Death from Hellboy II as well as quite a few that I don’t recognize.
Here’s the video:
New reports confirm Hellboy’s Guillermo Del Toro & David Eick in negotiations to create ABC’s Hulk live-action series. Make the jump for specs as well quotes from them both.
While Io9 revealed the news exclusively last month, Deadline is now reporting that the genius behind Pan’s Labyrinth & Hellboy, Guillermo Del Toro, and executive producer behind Battlestar Galactica David Eick, are locked for placing Marvel TV & ABC Studios’ live-action ‘Hulk’ series in full effect.
Marvel & ABC’s tentative live-action series for the “Incredible Hulk” reportedly already has a pitcher in Hellboy director Guillermo del Toro. Check it out!
The announcement of Marvel Studios teaming up with Disney’s ABC network is said to adapt many of Marvel’s comic properties into live-action television series. And one of those properties being ‘The Incredible Hulk,’ the studio is reportedly setting the series as a top priority. And now Io9 is claiming:
“Hulk has a “showrunner wanted” [sign] around its neck, and sources are saying that Guillermo del Toro and Battlestar Galactica producer David Eick will be pitching a take.”
The site further claims that ABC had no comment, neither confirming or denying it. But with great CBM titles under his belt, such as Hellboy, it’s sequel, and Blade II, what do you think of Guillermo del Toro pitching a weekly Incredible Hulk series?
Recently Latino Review reported that he was offered the chance to direct the new Godzilla reboot. However, according to HitFix, Del Toro says that’s not exactly true.
That was Del Toros first reaction according to Drew McWeeny, over at HitFix. He reports he caught up with Director Guillermo Del Toro and asked him about recent rumors that he’s been tapped to helm Legendary Pictures new Godzilla reboot. As reported yesterday by Latino Review.
This is what the director had to say, once the rumor was explained to him.
“I am not involved in ‘Godzilla’ at all,” Guillermo replied “I haven’t read it or plan to read it. Nor have I been approached to direct it.”
Drew goes on to say.
That sounds pretty definitive to me. I’ve known Guilermo a long time, and he’s not the sort of guy to shy away from geeking out about this or that potential project. He’s a big monster fan, and I’m sure if he was thinking about taking on the King of the Monsters, he’d be happy to share some of that enthusiasm.
