Hellboy Trailer Promises Reboot to be a Gory Bloody Horror Flick

Summit Entertainment (Lionsgate) released the first look at the new Hellboy movie starring David Harbour as the man himself Big Red.

But before you get all salty because Ron Perlman is no longer the Hellboy we all came to love, take a look at the trailer and decided. Read on…

CelebNMovie247.com reports that David Harbour (our new Hellboy) doubles down on that promise when it comes to this Hellboy movie being more like a gory bloody horror flick.

Hellboy director Neil Marshall (Decent, Doomsday) who has made some incredibly scary films packed with blood, guts and plenty of action it making sure this reboot stays Rated R.

The film is written by Andrew Cosby, Christopher Golden, Mike Mignola and stars David Harbour, Ian McShane, Milla Jovovich, Sasha Lane, Penelope Mitchell, Sophie Okonedo, Brian Gleeson, Alistair Petrie and more…

Once again you can expect Hellboy to be an action, fantasy, Sci-Fi, horror movie, but this time with a bit more on the horror. Neil Marshall previously stated that he was trying to stay more true to the comic.

However, Harbour notes the movie does all that and more because there is so much bloodiness in it.

David revealed IGN:

This movie is gory… it’s like a horror movie. There’s a lot of blood in it. It’s brutal. I remember showing some friends of mine this trailer, and they said, ‘God, I hope you hack so many people up with that sword of flame.’ If that’s what you want too, you will not be disappointed.

This time around the new story sees the hero squaring off against a medieval sorceress who seeks to destroy humankind.

Huh, OK, kind of the same as the 2nd film when the Prince of the Fiery world wants to reclaim his rightful place overtaking mankind.

Anyways here is the Plotline:

Based on the acclaimed graphic novels by Mike Mignola. “Hellboy” caught between the worlds of the supernatural and human, battles an ancient sorceress bent on revenge.


Neil’s next films are a remake of The Reckoning for late 2019 and a new King Kong movie called Skull Island: Blood of the Kong set for sometime in 2021.
