I caught Guillermo del Toro’s Hellboy back in 2004 and I think I might even own it on DVD, but I didn’t like it enough to see 2008’s Hellboy II: The Golden Army.
Do I have a burning desire to this this 2019 reboot?
I don’t know, but I am curious to see what Neil Marshall does with the material.
This time around Stranger Things star David Harbour replaces Ron Perlman as the big red demon?
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.
Hellboy also features Ian McShane (John Wick), Daniel Dae Kim (“Hawaii Five-0” and “Lost”), and Sasha Lane (American Honey).
Summit Entertainment and Millennium Films presents, a Lawrence Gordon/Lloyd Levin production, in association with Dark Horse Entertainment, a Nu Boyana production, in association with Campbell Grobman Films.
Hellboy starring David Harbour, Milla Jovovich, Ian McShane, Daniel Dae Kim, Sasha Lane opens on 12 April 2019.
