    This looks spectacular and from what I read, the script is pretty spectacular. Also, a proper villain. Coolness.

    My pleasure

    If anyone is intersted and hasn't checked it out yet, del Toro has a site dedicated to the production of the movie- http://www.hellboymovie.com/production/

    This is one to the things that makes del Toro probably my favourite director right now. It's not just his strengths as a visionary director that I like so much. It's also his eagerness to share info such as background material with anyone who will listen. It's indicative of his love for the genre, the film medium, as well as the fans. And his love of monsters. He's on record (A Charlie Rose interview I saw) as saying he'll never make a movie without some sort of monster in it. You gotta love the guy just for that

    There's a great little video there of the meeting he had with the creature designers, as well as Mike, talking about the look he wanted for the film's various fauna. The guy has a good sense of design going on in his head. I can see why he uses Barlowe a lot, as they seem to be a perfect fit as far as actual monster design goes.

    Ive been looking for art books along the lines of Pan's Labyrinth and HB2. Does anyone know the other concept artist working with Guillermo Del Toro besides Barlow?

    If you check out the 'Gallery' section (by way of the 'Gallery' button found on the banner at the top of the page) at this site- http://www.hellboymovie.com/production/ you'll see some of the work of the other concept artists. There's some really nice stuff there

    Really looking forward to this! I agree with you Eric, I love Del Toro's vision. There's something unique about everything he gets involved with, and I'm loving his choices: one movie over another. I know he didn't direct, but I just saw 'El Orfanato', The Orphanage, and thought it was fantastic! Just bought The Devils Backbone to watch this weekend as well.

    Edit: Just noticed that he's attached to Doctor Strange and At The Mountains of Madness. Lovecraft with a Del Toro touch! I tingle!

    Devil's Backbone is a very low key story compared to his latest work. But none the less it's a beautiful movie to watch. In many respects it shares the mood in Pan's Labyrinth. I think you'll enjoy it. If you haven't seen them yet, a couple others of his to watch are Mimic (the first one) and Blade II. Both solid movies. There's also Kronos, another movie with Perlman, which I haven't seen yet but would like to.

    He's been attached to Mountians for some time now, but it seems to be taking forever to come into production. I gather that Mountains of Madness for del Toro is akin to Jackson's King Kong. In other words a project that will finally come to fruition once he's fully established himself in the Hollywood landscape. Whatever the case many people think it's a movie that must be made and must be made by him only. And I agree And a Dr. Strange movie helmed by del Toro has win written all over it.

    Kronos is well worth watching. great twist to the over done vampire thing..

    Hellboy 2 looks great, loved the first one, felt that it had the right balance of humour, the characters were well fleshed out for a comic book movie... and it lives up the repeat viewing, ok Rasputin was not as well developed as a villain as he is the graphic novels.

    Watched The Devils Backbone, and thought it was excellent! Del Toro does 'baddies' so well, and yet still manages to present a character that produces at least a small amount of sympathy in us, although this time a very small amount! His themes are all there, orphaned children, the Spanish civil war, basements and general spooky goings on. I saw Kronos years a go but never really followed Del Toro after it, and Mimic didn't do it for me. Apparently it was his worst experience ever, making it, so maybe that shows.

    Yeah, that's what I gather. Really must check that out at some point.

    Glad you liked it I was actually a little surprised when I saw it as I was expecting something different. But in the end I thought it ended up being a very cool movie.

    Mimic was his first American big production. Yeah, it was an awkward movie, but the creature itself is pretty classic del Toro. Assuming he had anything to do with it's design that is. But it does have the creepy factor that he so deftly handles.

    Speaking of del Toro thematics (well, in this case quirky motifs), if you look closely at both Blade II and Hellboy you'll find that the protagonists of each eventually find themselves in a room full of abandoned typewriters. In Blade it's above the vampire nightclub and in Hellboy it's in the subway tunnels (where they find the cistern). I've looked but I haven't seen this in any other del Tor movie yet, but if I do see a room full of abandoned typewriters in one more del Toro movie I'll be fully convinced that he's trying to say something to his audience about ....something

    Interview with HBII creature costume maker

    Pretty cool little interview discussing the logistics behind much of the prosthetic creature costumes in HBII (with some very neat footage). Which speaks to another cool thing del Toro sticks to- that being the actual use of prosthetics over too much cgi.

    Del Toro is the man, absolutely loved everything he has made, the mood, the narration, everything, awesome movies, always interesting to watch. I admired him a lot.

    Im really looking forward to this film, it looks like its going to be fun, i definitely enjoyed the first hellboy. Creatures in the trailer are looking great.

    I recently heard that he has signed to direct "the hobbit", is it true? i tell ya´ it would put a big smile in my face if it were

    Tolkien plus Del Toro have win written all over it.

    That's what I heard, as well. He's been attached to it for some time now. Him and Sam Raimi. But del Toro was picked as the front runner. I would have been happy either way. I also like Raimi's work, as well.

    Del Toro is also rumoured to be interested in tackling Dr. Strange as his next movie after The Hobbit. That could prove reallly intersting

    That´s great

    I can imagine a lot of interesting projects going through his table, specially after the big succes of Pan´s Labyrinth, he would get to work his magic a lot more, and that is awesome.

    Wow, thats great news. Dr. Strange is one of those characters that, I have to admit, I don't think would take well to being made into a live action movie. But with someone like Del Toro, I certainly have changed my expectations if it happens!

    It really is a great pairing. I don't think it would work too well in anyone elses hands.

    Man, do I ever hear that. Hellboy was the comic that brought me back into comics. And it was mostly due to Mignola's artwork. The character and stories are fantastic. But man, his artwork just threw me for a loop. I couldn't get enough. Still can't. And I'd give anything to see him get back into sequentials again.

    If you get the time you might enjoy the production notes section at the Hellboy II site, which has just released a section that discusses del Toro's copious notes on some of the creatures and characters in the movie. Also, there's a cool maquette there of a three headed Cerberus type dog that Barlowe designed
