Usually these movie websites launch with nothing more than a teaser image and a note asking folks to leave their email for further updates. Well, not Hellboy 2. Guillermo del Toro's follow-up to the very popular action flick has officially attacked the web with all sorts of fun stuff. Among the tasty treats to devour, fans can check out del Toro's blog post from the set, a set visit report from CHUD's Devin Faraci, and -- probably the best of them all -- a scrapbook with all kinds of production art for the film. Each piece of art comes with its own description (I especially like the Golden Army Chamber -- that puppy is going to look pretty slick up on the big screen). There's lots more stuff, including a gallery, a message board and a news section, so head on over there to check it out. All of this should keep you busy while we await the film's first trailer. Hellboy 2 is due to arrive in theaters on July 11, 2008.
Additionally, folks can head on over to the new Hitman website, which boasts a trailer, downloads, origins webisodes and a game called The Killer App which kept me busy for all of about a half hour until I remembered I was in the middle of writing this post. In the game, you get to play a sniper who takes on missions and wipes out targets. Pretty fun stuff; let us know how far you got. Since the site still claims the film in not yet rated, we don't know whether Hitman will indeed stick with its hard-R rating, or opt to edit it down to a PG-13. Different sources claim different things, but in the meantime I think I'll dust off the Hitman video game I have and play some. I forgot how much fun it was to be a sniper, even though my aim is worse than that of a drunken fat guy at a urinal. Oh well. At least I try. Hitman will hit theaters on November 21.
