How Different Will The 'Hellboy' Reboot Be From The Original?


David Harbour Neil Marshall

It's hardly a surprise, given the nature of cinema in the current climate, but it's just been announced by the creator of the comic book series that we can expect a re-boot of the 'Hellboy' films in due course. It will be the first Hellboy movie since 2008's 'Hellboy II: The Golden Army'.

NBC Gets Dark With "Constantine Series Order"


Lucy Griffiths Neil Marshall David S. Goyer

For some people May means summer break and hitting the beach, for others – network upfronts. This week, the fate of your fall television schedule is being decided with  a constant stream of series pick-ups, put-downs, renewals and cancellations. One notable series order among them is NBC’s pickup of Constantine, a dark comedic thriller (sounds exciting already, right?), adapted from DC Comics’ Hellblazer, created in part by Alan Moore, Steve Bissette and Jamie Delano.

Doomsday Review


Bad
Step aside, zombie films -- there's a new derivative genre in town. The post-apocalyptic thriller is out to trump your ongoing redundancy. Instead of bringing something new to the dystopian brave new world, writer/director Neil Marshall's Doomsday has simply decided to reference each and every offering in the oeuvre. A substantial slip from his championed efforts (Dog Soldiers and The Descent), this Escape from Newcastle calamity is like watching George Miller channel John Carpenter. Toss in a little Aliens, a few medieval riffs, and enough Mad Max references to choke Mel Gibson's ego and you've got a disaster pretending to be profound.

When the Reaper virus devastates Glasgow, the British government quarantines all of Scotland. A few survivors make it out. The rest are locked behind heavy steel walls and guarded gates. Nearly three decades later, the plague reappears, this time in downtown London. Desperate to find a cure, Cabinet Minister Caranis (David O'Hara) gets Police Chief Nelson (Bob Hoskins) to send his top officer back into the hot zone. He chooses lady loose cannon Eden Sinclair (Rhona Mitra). Her goal? Lead a group of soldiers to Kane (Malcolm McDowell), a doctor who was once in charge of Reaper research. Seems the satellites have been picking up images of humans in the supposedly uninhabitable realm, and if Kane has found a cure, they may be able to stop the insidious disease.
