Last night Universal Home Video held a pretty nice party at the club Element (in Hollywood) to showcase their upcoming “Hellboy 2: The Golden Army” Blu-ray release.



While I haven’t watched the Blu-ray yet…based on what they showed us tonight, the disc is omfg. I mean it’s absolutely loaded with extras and tons of informative bits that show you how the special effects were done, how they made everything look so real, and I think by just watching this Blu-ray you could make your own Hellboy movie.



In the coming days Dellamorte will have a full review…but I can tell you right now it’s absolutely worth owning. Not only because the movie is good, but due to how much time and effort went into this Blu-ray.



Anyway, to help promote the upcoming release, Universal had a red carpet at the event and I was able to do a lot of interviews.



While I’ve already posted the Jeffrey Tambor, Selma Blair/Mike Mignola, Doug JonesandProducer Mike Richardson interviews, the one below is with Guillermo Del Toro.



While everyone else on the red carpet asked about “Hellboy 3″ and “The Hobbit”, I decided to go with a different line of questioning.



My friend Chris told me that Guillermo bought a second house just to store all his collectibles…so that’s what I asked about. And if you’re a fan of collecting memorabilia…..this will make you beyond envious. Trust me.
