Hellboy Reboot Announced, Stranger Things have happened…

I’m so ready for Strangers Things Season 2 to start on October 27th! When I found this Netflix original last year I was so impressed, I mean seriously this show is to Netflix as Game of Thrones is to HBO.  The old school scary movie vibe is felt from the second you hear the theme song, which by the way I LOVE! SPOILER ALERT!  If you would rather not know anything about season 2 then go ahead and skip to last paragraph and you’ll be safe.  OK…we good?  There really are no spoilers, I mean we knew Eleven would be back in season 2, that was just a given.  All the original characters (the kids at least) will be back together again this season, along with a few more additions to the cast.  Among those additions is a new cast member that will make you wanna say “HEY YOU GUYS!”. Set to be season 2’s new barb and Wynona’s new beau is Goonies star Sean Astin. This is our time baby! I’m friggin jazzed for the series premier October 27th#wheresbarb.

These kinds of shows are my jam.  Hellboy is one of my favorites as well, it’s another movie based off a comic book superhero except this superhero is a monster, love it! Monsters are always way cooler so to have the monster BE the superhero is fun and you can root for them and not feel guilty.  Not that I would feel guilty…or any other emotion for that matter, I’m pretty much dead inside, jk, a little, not really I’m as empty as my bank account after Christmas, or a sale on Unicorn stuff.  Moving on.

Looks like my favorite Netflix original series and one of my favorite creature features are gonna make sweet, sweet, comic book character based nostalgic love.  David Harbour, the town Sherriff and broody, middle aged, badass is going to be the new Hellboy in the reboot that’s currently scheduled for release on January 11, 2019. BONUS- Game of Thrones Ian McShane is set to join him in the film. The first picture of him as Hellboy is freaky, it pretty much looks EXACTLLY like Ron Perlman in beast mode (so way more veiny).  A few years ago when I first started working for my big girl job we were located in a building across the street from where we are now, Fasken Towers. We weren’t the only ones in the building.  On the first floor as you are walking to the elevators to the right is a wealth management company of some kind.  One day as I was coming out of the elevators for lunch I see a man that I spend the rest of the lunch hour trying to convince my lunch buddies is Ron Perlman.  When we get back from lunch I go to ask our front desk lady if she happen to notice a member of the Sons of Anarchy lurking around down here before lunch thinking she wouldn’t even know who I was talking about and she busts out an autograph she got from him right after I walked out of the building.  That’s right folks, he was right here in Midland a few years ago and I was less than ten feet away from him.   Apparently he was looking at buying some ranch land somewhere in the area.  Don’t know if he did or didn’t but damn it was cool seeing him in person, he’s tall.   Once again, moving on.

Here is Ron Pearlman’s Hellboy

From what I’ve read some fans of the original Guillermo del Toro movie are none too happy about this new revisioning.  I love that David Harbour is the new Hellboy but I myself have to admit that I’m always leery about reboots of movies I love, especially when you’re talking about a Guillermo del Toro movie. No other director makes movies like this guy.  Let’s all just hope for the best.  In the meantime who else is losing their sh*t waiting for Stranger Things Season 2 to air on October 27th!?!?!?!? AND WHERE THE HELL IS BARB!?!?!?!?
