The movie theater has been a great place for those who love comic book movies. Last week, theatergoers were treated to the DC Comics movie Shazam! In two weeks, audiences will be treated to the Avengers: Infinity War sequel Endgame, and this weekend saw the release of Dark Horse Comics Hellboy.
Hellboy is the 3rd Hellboy movie to be released in the theaters. The first two starred a man who nailed the look of Hellboy, Ron Perlman. Sadly, Perlman did not return for the latest entry in the Hellboy series as this is more of a reboot than a sequel.

Based on John Bellairs’ 1973 novel (You can buy the book here), The House With A Clock In Its Walls stars Jack Black as the eccentric Uncle Jonathan Barnavelt, Owen Vaccaro as Jonathan’s nephew Lewis Barnavelt, and Cate Blanchett as Jonathan’s love interest Florence Zimmerman. Directed by horror-movie expert Eli Roth, The House With A Clock In Its Walls brings these three characters together to tell an engaging and entertaining story.
