Holy crap… first look #hellboy pic.twitter.com/T63IpVvEHs — Mike Mignola (@artofmmignola) September 13, 2017 Mike Mignola just social media-ed the first image of David Harbour as Hellboy and…well, it’s gonna be good to have him back. The new Hellboy movie just started filming in the UK and Mignola is in set along with director Neil Marshall. […]
Last week saw the news that Colin Trevorrow, basically no one’s favorite choice to direct the final entry in the new Star Wars trilogy was stepping down due to creative differences with Lucasfilms and Disney. Vulture then produced a whole piece about it from their inside sources, basically detailing how difficult he was to work with, […]
Variety has announced a bunch of shows in various stages of orders at Amazon and The Boys, a dark take on superheroes from Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson, is in “script order” with a possible “event series” in the works:
Making a living as a cartoonist isn’t easy, as longtime Beat readers well know. However, one excellent source of revenue for a while was The New Yorker’s Cartoon Bank, which licensed cartoons for secondary use, netting creators sometimes thousands of dollars.

Coming off of this summer’s abysmal adaptation of The Dark Tower, Stephen King fans have reason to be weary. King’s novels can be difficult to adapt to the big screen, both too sprawling and other-worldly to see play out with your standard issue director without seeming broad or cartoonish. But IT, as a project, held some promise in the early days.
I’ve become a bit perversely fascinated by Marvel’s Inhumans. When something this epically bad happens, it emits a hypnotic allure. And the blame game is beginning to start. According to Variety, people at ABC already had voiced “concerns”: ABC sources tell Variety that concerns over quality of “Inhumans” episodes — both the special effects […]
Another disturbance in…the director’s chair! I a brief statement Lucasfilm announced that director Colin Trevorrow will not be directing Star Wars Episode IX after all. “Lucasfilm and Colin Trevorrow have mutually chosen to part ways on ‘Star Wars: Episode IX,’” Disney said in a statement. “Colin has been a wonderful collaborator throughout the development process but we […]

Everyone knows Lockjaw is cute, and this pandering shot of him, floppy tongued and welcoming eyed, entreats you to love him, LOVE him, just give him a chance, while the awful CGI that looks like something that your uncle Fred who got a new iPad Pro for his birthday did while experimenting with Sketch Club.
