Set in rural Ireland, it stars Rupert Evans (Hellboy) as David, a film archivist with a morbid fascination for old films in which the subjects have since died. Right after learning that his wife (Hannah Hoekstra) may be cheating on him, she mysteriously disappears at the same time that his assistant Claire (Antonia Campbell Hughes) finds an old reel of film that points to a murder that took place in his house a hundred years ago. David starts to suspect her disappearance may involve some form of the supernatural but he also quickly becomes the prime suspect.

Guillermo Del Toro and Legendary Pictures have created a “Pacific Rim” attraction for Oculus Rift, the virtual reality glasses that Facbook paid $2 billion to bring in-house. An Oculus representative told TheWrap this was the first time such established figures in Hollywood crafted an experience specifically for virtual reality using assets from a major motion picture. Some tech enthusiasts have branded virtual reality the future of movies, though Del Toro, the director of “Pan's Labyrinth” and “Hellboy,” sounded less certain.

Pixar's first special - Toy Story of Terror - was released last year. »
There might not be a Pixar film in theaters this year, but that doesn't mean the animation studio doesn't have something in store for fans. This Christmas, a new TV special is coming around Christmastime called Toy Story That Time Forgot. There will be a sneak preview of the ABC TV special at Comic-Con on Thursday, July 24th, and that's where you can get ahold of a cool poster designed by Hellboy creator Mike Mignola. That might seem like a weird match-up, but when you see the poster with a dinosaur warrior that has a mace in his hand, it'll all make sense. The Halloween short was fun, and this seems cool too. Look! Here's Mike Mignola's Toy Story That Time Forgot poster for Comic-Con from TV Line: During a post-Christmas play date, the Toy Story gang find themselves in uncharted territory when the coolest set of action figures »

Last fall, ABC aired a charming Halloween special starring the Toy Story franchise’s beloved playthings. Its ratings success has paved the way for another half-hour that’ll air on the network later this holiday season—and this one has more dinos than the first.
The second special, called Toy Story That Time Forgot, finds the heroes tangling with a gang of new action figures led by Reptillus Maximus (voiced by Grey’s Anatomy star Kevin McKidd). Much like Buzz Lightyear in the franchise’s first film, Reptillus and his crew don’t know that they’re just toys—which causes some major complications, »

Last year’s Toy Story Of Terror was yet another wonderful short outing for Woody, Buzz and the rest of the gang, blending their usual spot-on character work with a funny horror spoof. For their next trick, the Pixar team is adding dinosaurs – and who doesn’t love those terrible lizards? – for Toy Story That Time Forgot. The new half-hour TV special has launched a teaser poster in time for its panel at Comic-Con this week. Click on the image below to biggenerate it. Drawn by Hellboy creator Mike Mignola, the poster features the proud visage of Reptillus Maximus (Kevin McKidd), the leader of a group of dino-toys our heroes meet and who turn out to be suffering a similar delusion that once afflicted Tim Allen’s Buzz: namely that they think they’re real. And when you have dinosaurs believing they exist, you know there will be trouble, especially »

Week in Review rounds up the best of the rest of film and TV news hitting the web this week. Check out the rest of the Sos Blog for more news updates.
When Tommy Wiseau, the director of self-proclaimed masterpiece The Room (i.e. one of the best worst cult movies ever made), isn’t touring around college campuses and dodging chucked spoons at midnight screenings of his own film, or better yet, trying to play a video game, he’s presumably still out there being the auteur he thinks he is. Those desperate to know what he’d be up to next need wait no longer, as Wiseau has shared a clip from an upcoming sitcom he’s made called The Neighbors. Naturally, it looks awesome.
The clip for the show, as well as the show’s website, says it will premier on “Comedy.TV” this September. Except that might be a total lie, »

Toronto - On movie set visits, occasionally journalists won't get the chance to talk to directors at all. Sometimes the directors are artistes, too far down the cinematic rabbit hole to engage in casual chit-chat with the fourth estate. Sometimes the directors merely glorified puppets, but the producers are happy to put themselves forward instead. And sometimes the directors are friendly, smart and well-adjusted, but making movies is such complicated work that they can't spare more than two minutes for a smile-and-wave, lest the production between to teeter like an ill-formed game of Mouse Trap. Guillermo del Toro plays by his own rules. It's mid-March on the Toronto set of Legendary/Universal’s "Crimson Peak" and del Toro is literally lifting the roof off of his production to let a small group of reporters see the inner-workings of his Victorian haunted house drama. Actually, over the course of a lengthy day on set, »

I've got some disheartening news for all you Hellboy fans out there. Even though Ron Perlman is determined to try and get Hellboy 3 made, director Guillermo del Toro is not so certain that the project will ever happen. During his recent Reddit Ama he was asked about the project, and he gave some details on what the plot could have centered on, saying:
"Well, you know, we don’t have that movie on the horizon. But the idea for it was to have Hellboy finally come to terms with the fact that his destiny, his inevitable destiny, is to become the beast of the Apocalypse, and having him and Liz face the sort of, that part of his nature, and he has to do it, in order to be able to ironically vanquish the foe that he has to face in the 3rd film. He has to become the »

It’s a busy time for Guillermo Del Toro. The filmmaker just debuted his new TV series The Strain on FX and is currently finishing up next year’s horror film Crimson Peak. He also recently announced a pair of films: a small black-and-white movie, and the complete opposite of that. Del Toro is so busy that he actually needs to publicly announce when he’s not making a movie.

This review contains spoilers.
1.1 Night Zero
In terms of having a pedigree, The Strain ticks all the critical boxes, and then some. I’m a huge fan of the work of Guillermo del Toro and this show is based on a series of novels that he and Chuck Hogan wrote. He also directs the opening episode, and Chuck Hogan also helped co-write it. What could possibly go wrong?
I was somewhat concerned that in the first couple of minutes this show managed to deliver at least two Wtf moments. But before I get to them, it’s worth noting that the arrival of an aircraft travelling from Germany to the USA where everyone is dead isn’t the most original opening for a TV series. Because that »
