If you frequent almost any movie site on the Internet, you know that Ron Perlman has been making a lot of noise about Hellboy 3 lately. He really wants to get the sequel made. While Guillermo del Toro's first two installments in the comic book franchise, Hellboy and Hellboy II: The Golden Army, were considered successful, Columbia Pictures, who released the first installment, and Universal Pictures, who released the second, have never green lit the third and final movie. But as fans grow louder, and Ron Perlman keeps banging his drum, it's possible we could see it happen before the end of this decade. Thing is, Ron Perlman doesn't really want to make Hellboy 3.
Right now, the only ones having the Hellboy 3 conversation is Ron Perlman and Guillermo del Toro. There has been no word on the studio getting involved at this point. Though, Legendary did make the bold claim that they will finance the movie if Guillermo del Toro's Pacific Rim 2 proves to be a gargantuan blockbuster hit. Will we ever get to see Hellboy 3? Maybe, but it will be at least 2020 before we do so.Read More
We first heard about Hellboy 3 at Comic-Con 2012, when both Ron Perlman and Guillermo del Toro admitted publicly that they are trying to get the third movie made. Ron Perlman also revealed in April 2013 that he has been trying to use "Jewish guilt" on Guillermo del Toro to make the movie happen, but as of now, nothing has materialized.
It isn't known if Guillermo del Toro has written a full script for Hellboy 3, but the filmmaker has an ever-growing slate of projects. Aside from his FX TV series The Strain, which debuts July 13, the filmmaker is in post-production on Crimson Peak (October 16, 2015), and he is also working on the Pacific Rim 2 screenplay with Zak Penn.Read More
Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures has released three more clips from Pacific Rim! Delve deep into this Guillermo del Toro directed sci-fi thriller which pits vicious Kaiju monsters against a team of manmade robots known as Jaegers in a battle to save earth from total destruction.

The long-awaited Monsters and Robots mash-em-up Pacific Rim is finally coming to theaters on July 11th. And while most fans are going to see the movie for its epic battles, which play out between an army of manmade machines known as Jaegers and the giant Kaiju that have sprang from the bottom of our ocean to tear this world apart, director Guillermo del Toro's latest thriller also has a very human side. One that is personified by its earth-bound actors, two of which were on set the day we visited this mammoth production.
In Pacific Rim, Charlie Day, best known as the bar janitor on It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, plays one of the world's smartest living men, Dr. Newton 'Newt' Geizler, a scientist trying desperately to figure out a way to beat back and kill the Kaiju. On the other end of that spectrum is Guillermo del Toro mainstay Ron Perlman who plays Hannibal Chau, a black marketer dealing in Kaiju organs. This oddfellow pair comes together with their shared knowledge, and proves to be a worthy opponent against the city devouring space creatures, with both men becoming heroes in their own right.Read More
