    Manage Your 'Hellboy 3' Expectations: Legendary's Thomas Tull Says Don't Hold Your Breath

    Guillermo del Toro's "Hellboy" movies may be beloved by the geek crowd but financially, they're not quite blockbuster worthy. The first film didn't break $60 million domestically and "Hellboy 2" couldn't break $80 million at home. Collectively, the two films have only grossed $259 million globally a...
