This Friday we get three new movies arriving at a theater near you. Three of them are opening everywhere and one is in limited release.
Opening Nationwide on Friday, July 11th:

The ruthless leader of the other world is defying his bloodline and attempts to awaken the unstoppable creature army. It is up to Hellboy and the Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense to stop this from happening. But, Hellboy must choose between this world that he has known and the other and an unknown destiny that may be calling.

First Thoughts: Just doesn’t look good at all, but it couldn’t be worse than Norbit.
