It was a year ago that the first picture of what the new "Hellboy" would look like was released, but it was to Comic-Con that they revealed themselves to the main characters of this new reboot. This new movie will be directed by Neil Marshall and starring David Harbor, the star of "Stranger Things".
The film will portray the battle of Hellboy against an ancient witchcraft who wants to avenge himself on humanity and defeat it will require more of a demonic power than normal. Even for the EW magazine in March last year, the creator, Mignola, said the film is very true to a particular story about three parts he did with the artist Duncan Fegredo.
Lionsgate released a poster and a teaser at the beginning of the week, and was finally officially released on the YouTube channel to the manufacturer's official trailer, after it was leaked into the latest NYCC.
In this new trailer you can see that this new Hellboy retains the comic, fun and action-packed tone of the character.
The film will focus on the confrontation of Hellboy with Nimue, the "Queen of Blood", an ancestral spirit attempting to end all humanity. Nimue, interpreted by Milla Jovovich, was Merlin's mistress under King Arthur's government. From him he learned the spells that led her to be one of the most powerful witches, but the madness ended up seizing her and imprisoning the magician forever. A hundred years ago, he managed to destroy this villain, buried deeply, but returned from the dead with the purpose of destroying humanity with his black magic.
The cast is complemented by Ian McShane, Sasha Lane and Daniel Dae Kim. The film will be released April 12, 2019, the curious fact is that it will be 15 years since the premiere of the first adaptation of Guillermo del Toro.
