Hellboy picture

Trivia: Original "Hellboy" film series director Guillermo del Toro tried for nearly ten years to get a third film made in the series. However, due to a variety of circumstances, including budgetary concerns, his original vision for the third film was unable to be made. This movie was then written by series creator Mike Mignola and writer Andrew Crosby, with the intention of following on from the first two films. However, del Toro and original star Ron Perlman declined to be involved, feeling they should not make the film as it wouldn't pay off the storylines set up by the first two movies. Mignola and the producers then decided that rather than trying to make a direct sequel to the first two films without del Toro and Perlman, it should be rewritten to be a stand-alone reboot. References to the other films (and certain characters like Abe Sapien and Liz Sherman) were removed, and replaced with new concepts to set it apart from what came before.

Hobbs & Shaw picture

Trivia: Shaw walks past a Mini Cooper at one point, making a reference to a job in Italy and how Shaw would have been useful as a heavy bus driver. A nod to his role in The Italian Job remake, although given it's an original mini and his bus comment, it's got more parallels to the original. While it's been theorised Deckard Shaw might have been "Handsome Rob" in the remake, just undercover, the timelines don't work, given when Rob was in prison Shaw was in the military.

It picture

Trivia: Cary Fukunaga, whom is perhaps best known as a director on the series "True Detective" and for his works on films like "Jane Eyre", was originally contracted to write and direct the film. He eventually left the project after creative clashes with the studio, as he wanted to make a more unconventional film and executives feared his vision would not sit well with mainstream audiences. Fukunaga is still credited in the final film as a co-writer, however as many scenes from his version of the script were preserved in the final film.
