For those of you itching to check out a little bit more of Hellboy II: The Golden Army, the film's official website has been updated with some new pretty cool concept art, including an image of the Big Baby Gun (which, might I add, is pretty devilish looking). In addition to all the concept art, you can also slide over to some blogs from director Guillermo del Toro, hear Mike Mignola talk about the film and enjoy a few other fun film-related things. Here's a bit of a synopsis, taken from the site, in case you need to know more about this highly-anticipated sequel: "After an ancient truce existing between humankind and the invisible realm of the fantastic is broken, hell on Earth is ready to erupt. A ruthless leader who treads the world above and the one below defies his bloodline and awakens an unstoppable army of creatures. Now, it's up to the planet's toughest, roughest superhero to battle the merciless dictator and his marauders. He may be red. He may be horned. He may be misunderstood. But when you need the job done right, it's time to call in Hellboy (Ron Perlman)." Hellboy II:The Golden Army arrives in theaters on July 11, 2008.
Additionally, and moving onto another comic-related property, the Watchmen movie site has been updated with some new pics of The War Room, as it's called. Here's how it's described on the site: "It's a huge space. We used this room frequently for meetings during pre-production. Surrounding the many seats and long tables in the middle of the room, all the walls are covered and sectioned off into individual scenes – all the concept art, visual reference and any other related materials are grouped together for display." And that's no joke, there are tons and tons of photos, sketches, all kinds of stuff -- I'd get dizzy walking through there, but I'm sure the folks working on the film know each and every piece by heart. One image, of director Zack Snyder pointing to a photo on the wall (see below), shows off the character designs in the background. Pretty groovy; head on over there to check it all out. Watchmen hits theaters on March 6, 2009.
