Exclusive Guillermo del Toro Red Carpet Video Interview

     June 25, 2008

Last night I attended the 34th Annual Saturn Awards here in Los Angeles. While there, I managed to get video interviews with a ton of the winners and presenters, and posted below is the video interview I did with Guillermo del Toro on the red carpet before the show.

In the almost 10 minutes with the brilliant filmmaker, I asked a lot of questions on both The Hobbit and Hellboy 2 and 3. For exactly what we discussed it’s all above each part…but the big highlight is he would like to do Hellboy 3 after he finishes the two Hobbit movies. So in 2012…we might get the 3rd film.

He talks about a lot of other stuff so take a look!
