‘Transparent’ to Be Available Free on Amazon Saturday


Golden Globe winning actor Jeffrey Tambor is talking about a possible third installment in the Hellboy movie franchise. Also, if you do not pay extra for Amazon prime, now is your chance to see every episode of Tambor’s award winning and critically acclaimed made for Amazon TV show “Transparent.”

If you do not want to pay the extra $99 a year just to see Amazon’s original television programming the world’s largest on line retailer will give you a chance to see all 11 episodes free of charge for a 24 hour period on Saturday January 24th. Anyone can watch Transparent at no cost on Saturday using the Amazon Instant Video app for TVs, connected devices and mobile devices, or online at Amazon.com/Transparent.

Also, to celebrate the show’s big win a few weeks ago at the 72nd Golden Globes awards, Amazon will be offering its Prime service at a discounted $72.

“We’re incredibly proud of everyone involved in the making of Transparent—the team took a risk and it paid off, ” said Jeff Bezos, founder and CEO of Amazon.com. “Big kudos and congrats to Jill, Jeffrey, and all the cast and crew.”

Hellboy, which starred Ron Perlman as the iconic comic character who was a demon raised from infancy after being conjured by and rescued from the Nazis and then grows up to become a defender against the forces of darkness, has had two films. The first, which was released in 2004, grossed almost $200 million worldwide and spawned a sequel in 2008 called “Hellboy II: The Golden Army.” Both movies were written and directed by Guillermo del Toro.

The director does not expect to do another saying, “It is a question that I myself ask of the world many times, but we have gone through basically every studio and asked for financing, and they are not interested. I think that the first movie made its budget back, and a little bit of profit, but then it was very very big on video and DVD. The story repeated itself with the second already, it made its money back at the box office, but a small margin of profit in the release of the theatrical print, but was very very big on DVD and video.”

But Tambor recently said, “There is actually talk of a ‘Hellboy 3, ‘ but they better hurry or I’m going to be in a walker.”
