HELLBOY 2: THE GOLDEN ARMY
What's up with viral sites these days? Judging from the tail end of the trailer, there's a mysterious new one counting down to ... something.
A report at KYW Newsradio notes that the Robots in Disguise are headed for the city of brotherly love. "With the Writers' strike, it really slowed down the immediate effect that we were going to have as a result of these tax credits and now that that strike is resolved we're rushing to get a bunch of movies made before the actors go on strike," said Sharon Pinkenson, executive director of the Greater Philadelphia Film Office. As for the trouble caused by giant robots, Pinkenson said, "Let's just say the destruction part is going to be digitally enhanced."
A second clip from the movie, called "Run Before You Walk" has been posted at Apple.com.
Make up artist Edward French posted some photos on his website geting James Marsters into character as Piccolo.
PUNISHER: WAR ZONE
Director Lexi Alexander also updated her website with a note that the studio seems pleased with the work thus far. "Thank God it went well and, although I'll probably have to compromise on a few minor notes, it’s not nearly as bad as some of my filmmaker friends predicted it would be," Alexander wrote. "I guess I got away with an actual okay studio experience (knocking on wood since it’s not quite over yet). They also moved our release date to December 5th, which is, according to my reps, a much, much better date."
KEEPING IT REEL
We can't do this without you. The rumors, the scoops, the set photos -- they're all fueled by passionate fans emailing in the goods. The ones who ask, "What do you mean your sister's dating somebody who works for Warner Brothers?" The ones who know the code names of movie projects and scour city permit filings for them. The devoted, the involved. Fans, just like you. Whatever you know, we wanna know, and whether you want your name shouted to the web's rafters or kept closer than a classified report, we've got you covered like a comforter. Broadcasting live from Los Angeles, this is your humble scribe Hannibal Tabu saying thank you for your time and indulgence, and [tagline due to return with new WGA drafts shortly].
