Hellboy 2 Feels the Pinch
Director Guillermo del Toro tells Sci Fi Wire that making Hellboy 2 was a struggle, because while it's a more ambitious film, he had less time and less money to play with. "You have a budget and you say, 'How can I make it much bigger?' Even if you don't have the money. So that's a little problem. And then in this one we didn't have the money and we didn't have much time, so it was twice as stressful," explains the director. SuperheroHype.com has also posted a new Hellboy 2 set visit. No wonder del Toro was pushed for time – he spent all his time nattering to journos.
Want a Body like Wolverine's?
Now you can, thanks to the personal trainer who helped bulk up Hugh Jackman for the new X-Men spin-off movie. On Health Brands.com – an Australian site – Michael Ryan explains the regime through which he put the actor. "Hugh's weight has actually dropped over 4 kilograms since we began training for Wolverine," he explains. "However we use a body scanning machine that has proven we have only lost .3 of a kilogram of muscle through that weight loss period so it is predominantly body fat that has gone. Initially we concentrated on building muscle and there was a significant increase in muscle mass so we're happy with the results." So no-one's gonna kick sand in Wolverine's face now.
