A new red band trailer for the Hellboy reboot starring David Harbour (Stranger Things) teases a very violent film.
The first trailer for the reboot of Hellboy was in the eyes of many fans, very disappointing. Focusing on the humour over the action and including a light pop cover of Mony Mony by Billy Idol, our first look at the new reboot was quite disappointing.
However, I’m pleased to say that a new red band trailer has been released which almost seems the polar opposite of the first. Plenty of wisecracks and flailing decapitated limbs feature heavily in this second look.
Too many plot points have been revealed, unfortunately, but on the positive side, this now looks more like the Hellboy film we were expecting.
David Harbour stars in the titular role taking over from Ron Perlman who starred as ‘Big Red’ in the first two films. There is also a change behind the camera as well. Whereas the first two films were directed by Guillermo Del Toro, this new, more violent reboot has been helmed by Neil Marshall.
Marshall directed films such as Descent and Dog Soldiers and has made a transition to television where he has helmed episodes of Black Sails, Westworld and Game of Thrones.
Hellboy opens in the UK on April 11th and in the US the day after.
About Hellboy | Hellboy is back, and he’s on fire. From the pages of Mike Mignola’s seminal work, this action packed story sees the legendary half-demon superhero (David Harbour, “Stranger Things”) called to the English countryside to battle a trio of rampaging giants. There he discovers The Blood Queen, Nimue (Milla Jovovich, Resident Evil series), a resurrected ancient sorceress thirsting to avenge a past betrayal. Suddenly caught in a clash between the supernatural and the human, Hellboy is now hell-bent on stopping Nimue without triggering the end of the world.
