Since the announcement of it’s release date this past December, news surrounding the upcoming Hellboy reboot has been nonexistent. That’s not necessarily a bad thing, you don’t want to start a hype train too early.
However, thanks to the movie’s own Mili Jovovich, we have received our first look at some promotional material for the film, but it’s not what you think…
Generally, promotional material for films involve a peek at the characters or settings or anything that could maybe be dissected to give us a better idea of what to expect. Well not in Hellboy’s case!
Thats right, its a simple poster of Mila’s Blood Queen and Harbour’s Hellboy from the source material, and it’s perfect. The approach being taken to everything regarding this film is clever and being played close to the chest, which, personally, is refreshing in a world contaminated by spoilers and leaks. I don’t want to see anything, I mean a trailer would eventually be nice, but I hope thats just as vague as the poster.
Aside from the new poster, back in September we got a tease of David Harbour in full Hellboy attire and it did not disappoint. On top of that, fans will be happy to know that this film IS NOT an origin story, thank fuck.
David Harbour himself stated, “We kind of pick up the movie like we’re running and gunning,” he said. “We do have a little bit of stuff where we show stuff, but it really is a story and you just drop in with this guy.”
Fantastic. Thank you Neil Marshall for not treating the audience like a group of morons. If you’re a fan of the comics or past films, you don’t need a waste of time origin story. If you’re not a fan but are curious about the film, allow me to elaborate.
“Helloyboy is a demon/monkey prince that is saved by a Paranormal scientist during world war 2 when the Nazis were looking into the occult as a way to win the war. They open a portal and Rasputin is possessed by some demons. There is a skirmish and the Nazi’s are pushed back. Professor Broom raises Hellboy as his own son and they go on fun paranormal missions together, with other paranormal characters like Abe Sapien, the fish-guy from the Shape of Water.” -Mark Caffrey (n3rdabl3’s most fun writer)
