    How the New Hellboy Faithfully Adapts, Remixes, and Changes the Comics

    How the New Hellboy Faithfully Adapts, Remixes, and Changes the Comics Author’s note: We’re going deep into the Hellboy comic books here, so potential spoilers for the comic books only.

The new Hellboy is no different, and though this is by no means an exhaustive list of all the above, here’s everything we learned on the set of the new Hellboy with regard to its comic book basis:

    'Hellboy' Makeup Only Took Two Hours to Do

    One would expect that the makeup required to transform Stranger Things star David Harbour into Hellboy would take a substantial amount of time. After all, Hellboy the character has quite a few physical differences from the actor including the horns, the hair, all of that. However, even with all the details, it turns out that getting Harbour into character physically may not have taken quite as long as you'd expect. According to make effects master Joel Harlow, it less than two hours each day to transform Harbour into Hellboy, though that brevity of time comes from quite a bit of practice.

    What We Learned on the Set of Neil Marshall’s Practical Effects-Driven, Horror Take on ‘Hellboy’

    Director Neil Marshall unleashed a definitive modern classic in 2005 with claustrophobic cave terror The Descent. He injected new life into the sparse sub-genre of werewolf horror with Dog Soldiers, and has directed some of the most action-packed, breathtaking hours of television in Game of Thrones, Hannibal, and Westworld. Well versed in horror with a proven track record, there’s perhaps no better director suited for Hellboy, a reboot more grounded in realism and faithful to the comics on which it’s based. Most exciting of all, though, is Marshall’s steadfast belief in using practical effects.

    The second Hellboy trailer reveals apocalyptic stakes

    The newest trailer for the Hellboy reboot doesn’t hold back from the violence.

    While Guillermo Del Toro’s Hellboy movies were rated PG-13 for sci-fi violence, the upcoming Hellboy earned an R rating from the MPAA in February, which Hellboy creator Mike Mignola promised when he announced the film in 2017. Lead actor David Harbour elaborated on this in December, stating “This movie is gorey, I mean it’s like a horror movie. There’s a lot of blood in it. It’s brutal.”

    TCA 2019: NOS4A2 IS A CAUTIONARY TALE ABOUT 'CHRISTMAS EVERY DAY

    If you're a fan of The Fairly OddParents, you know that having Christmas every day just doesn't work. If you've read Joe Hill's horror novel NOS4A2, then you know it really, really doesn't work.

    The 2013 publication by Hill (aka the son of Stephen King) is getting its own television series on AMC this summer and will drive home the point that waiting around for Santa all the time is a very bad idea. Writer/producer Jami O'Brien explained why at the show's panel during the TCA 2019 winter tour.
