A comedy about...love?
There are plenty of jokes and humorous situations in the red band trailer for the upcoming comedy 3, 2, 1... Frankie Go Boom, and there's also a lot of people yelling at each other and partial nudity. What there isn't is a clear idea of what the plotline is, so we'll stick with the description cast member Lizzy Caplan gave The Playlist last year.
some trailers more naked than others
It's about a guy whose life has been ruined by a YouTube video that has gone viral and so he's been hiding out and he gets brought back into civilization — because he's been living in the middle nowhere — by his really manipulative, horrible brother. And everybody in his life is sort of terrible [and it's about] how he deals with that.

Director Guillermo del Toro and actor Ron Perlman were on hand at the San Diego Comic-Con to promote the upcoming "robots vs. giant monsters" movie Pacific Rim, but couldn't escape the lingering questions of Hellboy 3. Perlman recently endured the painstaking make-up process for the character (something he's admitted that he isn't a fan of) to fulfill a Make a Wish Foundation request of a six year old boy battling leukemia. Del Toro admitted to Entertainment Weekly during the convention that the result of that visit has reinvigorated the director/actor duo's desire to want to make a third installment.

I’ve encountered a lot of kids who are fans of the movies, but to hear the story of this kid who was watching the movies while going through treatment, it really just moved me a lot. I can say publicly that now we are together in trying in that endeavor [to do Hellboy 3], so let's see if somebody finances it.
Thomas Jane played Frank Castle, aka The Punisher, in 2004's The Punisher but ultimately passed on the mess that was 2008's poorly-received Punisher: War Zone (Ray Stevenson replaced Jane in the title role). Now Jane is back as the Punisher in a new, bloody, ten-minute short titled Dirty Laundry.
Directed by Phil Joanou (State of Grace, Gridiron Gang), Dirty Laundry shows Frank finding trouble no matter where he goes, even if its just to the laundromat. On producer Adi Shankar's (The Grey) YouTube page (via Collider), Jane offered an explanation on why he and his production company made a fan movie for The Punisher. warning: Dirty Laundry is indeed dirty >> Posted 07.16.12 by Ryan
After director Guillermo del Toro said that studio producers didn't seem "interested in" making a sequel to Hellboy II: The Golden Army, we thought me might never again see Ron Perlman put on the horns and hooves of comic book creator Mike Mignola's most popular creation. But, the tough-guy actor who once complained to del Toro about the six hours in makeup that the part required, has a heart of gold. Perlman recently went through the painstaking process to become the character once more to fulfill one little boy's wish of meeting Hellboy and giving us all one more opportunity to see Hellboy in the (latex) flesh. see perlman fulfiling a wish as Hellboy >> Posted 07.09.12 by BrentJS
How would today's action movies look if there were no guns?
The answer is Bunraku, a martial arts movie that takes place in a world where guns are banned, giving way to some pretty spectacular fight scenes. Though it's an import, the movie boasts a stellar American cast, including Josh Hartnett, Woody Harrelson, Demi Moore, and Ron Perlman. The movie also stars Japanese singer and actor sensation Gackt. Bunraku is the first international movie for Gackt.
And we have eight exclusive clips from the movie, which is screening at this year's Toronto International Film Festival (the movie made the festival's Midnight Madness selection).
Here is a synopsis:
In a hyper-saturated, hyper-driven dystopia, guns are banned and the sword is king.
In a world with no guns, a mysterious drifter (Hartnett), a young samurai and a bartender (Harrelson) plot revenge against a ruthless leader (Perlman) and his army of thugs, headed by nine diverse and deadly assassins. This visually stunning film is filled with uniquely choreographed action sequences of a new style that melds east with west and old school with new.
Bunraku is derived from a 400-year-old form of Japanese puppet theater, a style of storytelling that uses 4-foot-tall puppets with highly detailed heads, each operated by several puppeteers who blend into the background wearing black robes and hoods.
You'll get a better sense when you check out the eight clips. watch the clips >> Posted 09.12.11 by Chris
To make Hellboy 3, or not to make Hellboy 3: that is the question. And the answer continues to change.
Last August, director Guillermo del Toro said he faced a major obstacle in convincing actor Ron Perlman to spend " six hours [in the makeup chair]". Months later, he said the sequel, basically, was never going to happen.
However, echoing comments he made in January, Perlman told a FilmDistrict panel at the San Diego Comic-Con that he would be ready to put the make-up back on. more from Perlman and del Toro >> Posted 07.22.11 by Ryan
If the amount of red band content is any guide, then director Marcus Nispel's upcoming Conan reboot, Conan: The Barbarian, is truly an R-rated affair.
Over the weekend, a UK red band trailer surfaced, a month after another red band trailer debuted in June. Lionsgate's latest red band offering is an extended clip from the beginning of the movie, focusing on a young Conan (Leo Howard) in his home village where his father (Ron Perlman) offers him and the other boys in the village a physical challenge to see if he is ready to fight amongst the other Cimmerian warriors. During the challenge, Conan is attacked but is more than ready to defend himself. The studio initially released the clip via Twitter, but with the link often failing, ComingSoon has grabbed their own copy. watch the clip >> Posted 07.20.11 by Ryan
A large selection of new still images and at least one set photo — we hope it's a set photo considering a guy wearing a baseball cap can be seen striding into frame — from director Marcus Nispel's upcoming sword-and-sorcery movie, Conan: The Barbarian, have turned up online, The images, posted by ConanMovieBlog, an unofficial fan site dedicated to Robert E. Howard's most famous creation, include several new shots of Jason Momoa as the title anti-hero; Rachel Nichols as Tamara, Conan's warrior maiden love interest; Stephen Lang as the villainous warlord Khalar Zym; and Rose McGowan as the witch Marique. The set also includes the first images of Ron Perlman as Conan's father, Corin, and Nonso Anozie as the Zamoran pirate Artus. more about Conan: The Barbarian >> Posted 06.30.11 by BrentJS
Mickey Rourke was initially offered the role of Corin, Conan's father, in director Marcus Nispel's Conan the Barbarian reboot, but the role eventually went to actor Ron Perlman (Hellboy and Hellboy II: The Golden Army) instead. Perlman, who's out promoting Season of the Witch, recently talked to Examiner about his Conan role and revealed a few details on what fans can expect from the upcoming reboot.
