The Golden Army

Hellboy II: The Golden Army [watch the trailer]
In Guillermo Del Toro’s new sequel, the Bureau of Paranormal Research and Defense returns, led by a Hellboy (Ron Perlman) – demon who wants nothing to do with Hell, Liz Sherman (Selma Blair) -a pyro who wants little to do with her flame, and Abe Sapien (Doug Jones) – a fish man in search of personal contact. When the mystical Princess Nuala (Anna Walton) stumbles into their midst to tell them of her brother Prince Nuada’s (Luke Goss) attempts to recruit an indestructible golden army for an impending war against the mundane world, the BPRD has no choice but to take action, for better or for worse.

Meet Dave [watch the trailer]
A crew of tiny aliens, led by Eddie Murphy, pilot a robot spaceship that looks just like Eddie Murphy in their exploration of Earth. In their acclimation to our world, they also start to get a sense of the human experience – including something called ‘emotions.’ However, this does not preclude him from having his discovery of the wonders of hot dogs translate into a serious situation in a men’s room. You can figure that out for yourself.
