The Apocalypse begins in the latest action-packed trailer for David Harbour’s Hellboy
Hold onto your butts!
Lionsgate has released the latest action-packed red-band trailer for the upcoming reboot of the Hellboy franchise, which finds Mike Mignola’s “Big Red” caught between the worlds as he battles an ancient sorceress bent on bringing the end of days.
Fans have been promised a far darker, harder-edged version of the character than the previous Ron Pearlman adventures and the all-new red-band trailer delivers on that promise and then some.
David Harbour has stated that his interpretation of Hellboy will find the title character being much more brutal than we’ve previously seen and this new trailer reveals that in abundance. “There’s really a sense that you’re actually killing things, even if they are giants or monsters. You’re chopping their heads off, you’re bathing in their blood and you’re feeling the complex feelings of actually cutting the heart out of another thing,” Harbour said. “We’re taking the time to deal with the fact that Hellboy is a killer. He’s a weapon.”
Guillermo Del Toro’s take on the character was a light and fun rollercoaster ride that managed to maintain the integrity of the source material but still managed to tell a truly dark and foreboding story. It is a crime against cinema that his trilogy will never be completed but the blow will almost certainly be softened by what promises to be an awesome relaunch of the Hellboy series.
Hellboy will bring a new level of hell to cinemas on April 12, 2019
