Sometimes the noise of the fans is all that stands between a project's potential life and all too certain death. The most recent example of that is Hellboy 3, a movie that has so much fan support behind it that it's a crime it hasn't already been scheduled for production and release. While the franchise certainly hasn't been a blockbuster among the ranks of your average Marvel movie, Hellboy has one thing that works to its advantage anytime it comes up: its fanbase is extremely energized about it. But no one, and we mean know one, is more excited about this movie than Hellboy himself, Ron Perlman; and he'll fight to the gates of Hell to see it happen. During a Reddit Ama to promote his new book, Easy Street (the Hard Way): A Memoir, it was a given that the legendary Perlman would be asked a couple of »

Where is the line between justice and revenge? That’s the central question at the heart of Hand of God, a psychological drama starring Golden Globe-winner Ron Perlman as a corrupt judge who suffers a breakdown after his son attempts suicide. It was a role that “completely intimidated” Perlman, who is best known for playing the ruthless patriarch of a motorcycle gang in Sons of Anarchy.
A pilot that can intimidate Ron Perlman? If that doesn’t make you curious to see what it’s about, Hand of God co-stars Dana Delany (Desperate Housewives) as Perlman’s steely wife and Garrett Dillahunt (No Country for Old Men) as a born-again sociopath. The pilot is also directed by renowned filmmaker Marc Forster (Monster’s Ball, World War Z), who joins creator Ben Watkins (Burn Notice), the producers and stars in this behind-the-scenes look.

Though Amazon is not the only streaming player out there, the site is the first to take advantage of audience feedback when developing series. As part of its pilot season, Amazon releases the first episodes to the public and asks for feedback, a feature that the casts of its series find refreshing.
The stars took to the carpet at Downtown L.A.’s Ace Hotel Monday night for the premiere of Amazon’s new dark comedy, “Transparent.”
“It’s different, but it’s really cool,” remarked Mena Suvari, who stars in the site’s new pilot “Hysteria.” “I really enjoyed reading the comments that people had made, and the recommendations that they give. It’s a collaborative effort and it’s nice to engage audiences like that.”

Sons of Anarchy portrays the fictionalised world of an outlaw motorcycle club; although the plots are dramatic in the extreme, many of the details are firmly based in realism, including the costuming. Series creator Kurt Sutter has described it as pure soap opera, but this family drama has earned the tag of “Hamlet on Motorcycles”. It has been embraced by pop culture and by the biker community, and spurred an upsurge in sales of Harley Davidsons (and a $25k Soa branded bike).
Motorcycle club culture took off after WW2, when returning veterans with experience of riding bikes on service, and often undiagnosed post-traumatic stress, took to the lifestyle looking for the camaraderie and thrills their return from war had left them missing. The press quickly seized on the growth of these groups (top tip: don’t ever call an Mc a gang) and brewed some good old-fashioned hysteria about anti-social »

Hand of God, Season 1, Episode 1: “Pilot”
Written by Ben Watkins
Directed by Marc Forster
Released August 28, 2014 by Amazon
While Ron Perlman is known for his roles in movies such as Hellboy and Pacific Rim, he’s no stranger to television, having risen to prominence as the titular Beast in the 80s tv series Beauty and the Beast, as well as playing a prominent role in the FX series Sons of Anarchy. The Amazon pilot Hand of God is his newest small screen role, as he plays Judge Pernell Harris, a man suffering from a mental ailment brought about by the attempted suicide of his son, one that causes him to hear voices and see visions. In an attempt to get a series greenlight, Amazon and the creators have released the pilot online, and while the episode is not without its flaws, it nonetheless points towards a potentially engaging show, »

Believe it or not, films and television programmes added to Netflix and Amazon do have a tendency to expire and no longer be there after a while; this isn’t as publicised as when the titles in question are added though. So by the time you read this there are around 50 titles disappearing from Netflix.
If you have ever wanted to watch the 2002 version of The Count of Monte Cristo then you have probably missed your chance by now. What this does mean however is that probably next week Netflix will have added a whole raft of new stuff, I say new but it will probably be a mixture of catalogue and stuff from the last year. I know that the underrated Enders Game and the superior Hunger Games: Catching Fire is due there in September, I just don’t know when.

The California State Senate has approved legislation on a 32-2 vote to extend and expand California’s movie and TV tax credit, more than tripling its current size to $330 million annually over five years.
The vote came on Friday afternoon, two days after legislative leaders and Gov. Jerry Brown announced that they had reached a deal on the legislation.
The $330 million annual outlay would be less than the $400 million-per-year outlay sought by the bill’s principal co-authors, Assemblyman Raul Bocanegra and Assemblyman Mike Gatto. Still, the program will see a significant improvement from the $100 million per year currently awarded in California tax credits.
A coalition of unions, the Motion Picture Assocation of America and notable actors such as Halle Berry, Danny Glover, Ron Perlman and Daniel Stern have spoken out in favor of the legislations, Assembly Bill 1839.
“This expansion of the Film and TV Tax Credit is a huge victory for Californians, »

August 28rd, 2014, 6:35pm– Although our attention is pointed towards New York City tonight as Rupert Grint is just about to make his Broadway debut at the Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre, we would like to take a minute to post this lovely new image from Moonwalkers. It was posted on Instagram by Rupert’s co-star Ron Perlman and shows a sneak peak from Empire Magazine‘s “On Location” section which has a feature on Moonwalkers. 10518124_1530420807192653_1064126966_n In related news, an interview has popped up which was conducted on the set of Moonwalkers.

This is an interesting interview as we get to see a completely different and personal side to Rupert: But as mentioned before, Rupert is just about to make his Broadway debut in It’s Only a Play, so let’s all send him the warmest »
Amazon's new pilots today include two dramas, neither of which is very good, unfortunately. These are just pilots, and these are simply preliminary reactions, but … devote your energies to the comedies instead. Unless you really, really love Ron Perlman's manic moping.Hand of God Oh, great, another show about a sad, angry dude who makes life miserable for everyone around him — but goddammit, isn't he just the most important thing that ever was. Ron Perlman stars as a judge who starts losing his grip on reality after his son and daughter-in-law are attacked; the son remains in a coma following a subsequent suicide attempt. "God chose me to mete out justice, just like Solomon," Perlman says. And one of the ways he does this is by forcing his daughter-in-law — forcing, by force, forcibly turning her body so she's facing in the direction he wants — to stare at a »

Determined to be the next Netflix, Amazon is continuing its original programming plans with the company's third wave of TV pilots now available.
Five shows are in contention: Whit Stillman's Paris-set "The Cosmopolitans" starring Adam Brody and Chloë Sevigny; Marc Forster's "Hand Of God" starring Ron Perlman and Dana Delaney; the Mena Suvari-led medical drama "Hysteria"; David Gordon Green's coming of age comedy "Red Oaks", and Jay Chandrasekhar’s laugher "Really".
All five are available for viewing through Amazon’s Prime Instant Video in the U.S. and UK. Viewers can weigh in with opinions on which shows should be made into Amazon Original Series. Here's the sizzle real for all five:
This follows on from the first pilot wave of which only "Alpha House" and "Betas" made it to series and neither of which has made much impact. The second wave of pilots took place »
