Hell comes to the DC universe, details on Twin Peaks on Blu-ray, and more, as we look at some of the biggest stories from the week in horror.
Hellboy comes to Injustice 2
This week, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and DC Entertainment revealed the first-ever gameplay trailer for Hellboy, Mike Mignola’s iconic Dark Horse comic book character and the final Fighter Pack #2 character to be added to the Injustice 2 roster. Beginning November 14, players who have purchased the Injustice 2 Ultimate Edition, Injustice 2 Digital Deluxe Edition, Injustice 2 Ultimate Pack or Fighter Pack #2 will be able to play as the member of the Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense who has made monster disposal his specialty by using his trusty revolver and his Right Hand of Doom.
The Hellboy DLC will be available to all players and for purchase separately on November 21.
Twin Peaks: A Limited Event Series will arrive December 5, 2017, as multi-disc Blu-ray and DVD collections from Showtime Networks, CBS Home Entertainment and Paramount Home Media Distribution. Both collections include all eighteen parts of the acclaimed SHOWTIME limited event series directed entirely by four-time Oscar nominee David Lynch, plus over six hours of special features which take fans behind the red curtain for an up-close, exclusive look at the making of the show. Over eighty minutes of additional behind-the-scenes content will be available exclusively on the Blu-ray release.
Appearing on both the Blu-ray and DVD collections, IMPRESSIONS: A Journey Behind the Scenes of Twin Peaks is a series of ten, approximately thirty minute films directed by longtime Lynch documentarian and friend Jason S. (Interview Project), who was given unparalleled access to document the making of the series. Each of these ten films capture the triumphs and tribulations of a master director and true artist at work. The collections also include Phenomenon, a three-part featurette in which series cast and crew join artists, musicians and creative personalities to reflect on the enduring legacy of Twin Peaks; the Twin Peaks panel at San Diego Comic-Con 2017, moderated by Damon Lindelof (The Leftovers, Lost) and featuring Lynch’s on-camera introduction; series promos produced by Lynch for SHOWTIME, as well as one for in-cinema play; a grouping of all eighteen (18) different Rancho Rosa (the series’ production company) logos from the top of each part; and a behind-the-scenes photo gallery. Lastly, through seamless branching, both Part 1 and 2, and 3 and 4 of the series are included individually, as well as in combined feature-length presentations, as they were originally shown on Showtime in the U.S.
For fans who want the definitive version of Twin Peaks: A Limited Event Series, the Blu-ray, featuring deluxe packaging, will contain three additional behind-the-scenes films. The independent filmmaker, photographer and Twin Peaks’ Ben Horne – Richard Beymer – directed two compelling featurettes, Behind the Red Curtain and I Had Bad Milk in Dehradun, that follow Lynch and company as they shoot in the Red Room. In A Very Lovely Dream: One Week in Twin Peaks, filmmaker Charles DeLauzirika, who has produced and directed numerous featurettes for previous Twin Peaks home entertainment products, documents a week on the set when the cast returned to Snoqualmie and North Bend locations from the original series 25 years later.
Starring Golden Globe winner Kyle MacLachlan (Blue Velvet, Dune), the SHOWTIME 18-part series picks up 25 years after the inhabitants of a quaint northwestern town were stunned by the shocking murder of their homecoming queen Laura Palmer. Twin Peaks is written and executive produced by series creators Mark Frost and David Lynch, and is executive produced by Sabrina S. Sutherland.
