The latest trailer for the Hellboy reboot brings the blood and gore

Lionsgate films has released a pair of new trailers for its upcoming reboot of Mike Mignola’s classic comic, Hellboy. The new trailers — a red and green band spot — give us a good look at the film’s plot, and presents a much better feeling than the first trailer did. The film is a reboot of the film franchise, with The Descent and Game of Thrones director Neil Marshall helming the project, featuring Stranger Things’ David Harbour as the movie’s titular demon. The new trailers outline what we can expect for the plot of the film, and covers some of the familiar beats of Hellboy’s origin story. During World War II, Hellboy was summoned from Hell by Nazis looking for an edge in the later days of the war. He was instead adopted by the US, and raised under the auspices of the Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense, an agency designed to help fend off paranormal threats.

Disney unveils the name of its Netflix competitor, plus new Marvel and Star Wars shows

Disney’s Netflix competitor finally has a name. The long-awaited Disney video-streaming service will be known simply as Disney+. Company CEO Bob Iger unveiled the name during a Thursday earnings call. Iger also announced that the service will launch in the U.S. in late 2019. Disney has been planning its video-streaming service since at least 2017 when the company said it was going to end its multi-year contract with Netflix and pull all of its content off the service. The reason for doing so was simple. Disney wants to move all of its properties — including Disney classics, Pixar movies, the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and Star Wars films — to its very own streaming platform.

Legion season 3

It’s official, Legion is returning for season three. This will come as a major relief for fans of the mind-bending Marvel series, especially as many greeted the news that season two would have an extra episode as confirmation that it was about to be cancelled (with the additional episode being used to wrap things up). Thankfully that’s not the case, and we’ll be getting more of the sort of surreal madness that follows David Haller (Dan Stevens), son of Professor Charles Xavier, as he continues to journey into his own mind in an attempt to conquer his own powers and battle the demonic Shadow King (Navid Negahban).
