Seems like every few months we get teased with the possibility of sequels to beloved films -- stuff like 'Hellboy 3' or a new 'Blade Runner.' While some of these films may or may not ever happen, a new art exhibit explores the idea of sequels that will probably never exist, including sequels to 'Fight Club' and 'The Rocketeer.' Sure, franchise fatigue is real and it's a problem, but this artwork sure does make these sequels seem mighty attractive.
Guillermo del Toro and Ron Perlman have been busy doing press for 'Pacific Rim,' but there's another film the two are still talking about: 'Hellboy 3.' And if Perlman has his way, the third film in the franchise might still happen with a little help from Legendary Pictures, who co-produced 'Pacific Rim' with Warner Bros.
'Hellboy' and 'Hellboy II: The Golden Army' were only modest successes by the standards of superhero movies, grossing $99 million and and $160 million respectively, so the demand for a 'Hellboy 3' doesn't seem particularly high. However, according to Hellboy himself, Ron Perlman, a third film needs to happen.
When we last heard from Hellboy, it was 2008, and he came out to big numbers, which made the gamble of a sequel seem like a good idea. The next week 'The Dark Knight' came out and the picture died quickly in the face of that behemoth. But today at Comic-Con 2012, Guillermo del Toro and Ron Perlman said they're up for doing 'Hellboy 3.'
