The Hellboy trailer has finally landed and it gives us a first-hand look at the upcoming reboot starring David Harbour as the titular hero. Director Neil Marshall has taken a slightly different step towards this R-rated adaptation with a bit of humour thrown in.
Accompanied to the rocking tune of Billy Idol’s Mony, Mony, the Hellboy trailer suggests a looser and fun version of the film. Still it remains to be seen how well this one does compared to the original directed by Guillermo del Toro and Ron Perlman starring as the demon. To be honest, those are pretty big shoes to fill.
Harbour though will be helped along by Ian McShane starring as Hellboy’s adoptive father, Dr. Trevor Bruttenholm, Daniel Dae Kim who stars as Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense agent, Ben Daimio and Sasha Lane as Alice Monaghan.
Milla Jovovich takes on the lead antagonist role, playing Nimue, a medieval British sorceress who wants to destroy humankind. Hellboy arrives in theatres in April 2019.
