The reboot of Hellboy looks like some good old devilish fun.
There are so many movies coming out in 2019, I honestly completely forgot that the new Hellboy was one of them. I don’t want to take anything away from it, but in a year with a Joker movie, Endgame and the new Spider-Man, it’s really hard to keep track of all the superhero flicks coming out. Now, after saying that, and having this trailer reminding me that we are in fact getting a Hellboy reboot, what can I say, I’m kind of excited.
It has some massive shoes to fill, the previous Hellboy movies were not box-office juggernauts, but they had Guillermo Del Toro’s flawless visuals and a charming lead in Ron Perlman. Two things that will he hard to follow up, but man David Harbour looks just as comfortable in this role as his counterpart did. One thing the previous instalments didn’t have was a rated R version. It seems so perfect having Hellboy rated R, and we even get a little taste of that in this trailer. They just seem to go hand-in-hand pretty seamlessly and I was digging this thing. Way better than the first trailer, and when the lead of your movie works to pretty much perfection, well it goes a long way for your film. It also always helps to have Ian McShane attached to your film, that man is so damn fun to watch.
This could also turn out to be just a complete mess and a CGI slug-fest, but I actually think we will have a very entertaining movie on our hands. The future lies in the box-office, I just think Hellboy is an awesome and fun character and I enjoy watching him beat things up. Pretty simple.
