Guillermo del Toro Films
There are few cinematic fantasists as fascinating or beloved as Guillermo del Toro. This is a man whose unparalleled imagination could probably power whole city blocks, someone who dreams not in colors or smells but in entire universes and species. And in the handful of features he's directed, he's let us into these new worlds, which are almost always darkly macabre and tinged, either subtly or explicitly with elements of the supernatural.

Hellboy
Guillermo del Toro's "Hellboy" movies may be beloved by the geek crowd but financially, they're not quite blockbuster worthy. The first film didn't break $60 million domestically and "Hellboy 2" couldn't break $80 million at home. Collectively, the two films have only grossed $259 million globally and that's off $151 million total budgets which doesn't include promotion and advertising stateside and around the world. You do the math. But today there was some brief hope. Del Toro, doing the "Pacific Rim" press rounds out of San Francisco, told ShockTilYouDrop that "Hellboy 3" could find a home at Legendary Pictures, the production company that bankrolled his lastest monster movie.

By all accounts, Guillermo del Toro is about to step up to the next level. It's easy to remember that while he's had critical Oscar-nominated films like "Pan's Labyrinth" and is an unimpeachable geek idol, he's never had a true smash hit. But next summer's megabudget "Pacific Rim" is looking poised to change that, if the ecstatic reaction from fans at Comic-Con is anything to go by. Now, del Toro has more than his share of projects on the go, most of them passion projects, and it's likely that if the film is as big as we're expecting it to be, the helmer will get carte blanche to make whatever he'd like. But could one of those prospective follow-ups be a return to his blockbuster franchise?

How great is this? Ron Perlman, of all people, was trending on Twitter this weekend. Why? The 62-year-old actor recently stopped by the creatures, props and special makeup effects house Spectral Motion and donned the "Hellboy" make-up once again. No, Guillermo del Toro isn't making a third film, Perlman transformed into "Hellboy" once more for two boys in the children's Make-A-Wish foundation. Faith in humanity restored, if only for a fleeting, brief moment.
