A second “Hellboy” trailer is on the loose. Lionsgate released a Red Band trailer for the highly anticipated reboot this week; this marks the second official trailer that the studio has released for the film.
“Hellboy” is set to release on April 12th this year, but the film will have to fight off competitors at the box office. David Harbour stars in the film in the titular role. The other roles include Milla Jovovich as Nimue the Blood Queen; Ian McShane as Professor Bruttenholm; Sasha Lane as Alice Monaghan; and Thomas Haden Church as Lobster Johnson.
Also starring in the film are Penelope Mitchell as Ganeida; Daniel Dae Kim as Ben Daimio; Sophie Okonedo as Lady Hatton; Kristina Klebe as Leni Riefenstahl; Ashley Edner as Agent Taylor; Mario de la Rosa as Camazotz; and Douglas Tait as Gruagach.
Neil Marshall directed the reboot for Lionsgate; fans of the comics can watch the official trailer below.
As we mentioned earlier, there are several major releases scheduled to hit theaters in April this year. “Hellboy” is releasing nationwide one-week after the “Pet Sematary” reboot, and the DC film “Shazam!.” Either of those two films could overshadow Hellboy’s release or split the box office during Hellboy’s debut. The weeks following are pretty clear, with only “The Curse of La Llorona” showing any real threat to Hellboy’s follow-up schedule.
The first “Hellboy” film hit theaters back in 2004, with Ron Perlman starring as Hellboy alongside Selma Blair. That installment was written and directed by Guillermo del Toro and opened at number-one at the box office with a $23M debut. The film went on to make over $59M domestically and over $99M worldwide for the studio. The success of the film prompted Lionsgate to release a sequel in 2008, with Guillermo del Toro, Ron Perlman, and Selma Blair returning to their roles. “Hellboy II: The Golden Army” made $34M when it opened in theaters nationwide, going on to make over $75M domestically and $160M worldwide.
“Hellboy” will hit theaters on April 12, 2019.
