There are four movies opening this weekend — Lionsgate’s “Hellboy” remake, Universal’s comedy “Little,” Laika’s stop-motion animation “Missing Link” and Aviron’s romantic drama “After”.
This group of films joins an already packed box office marquee. It includes last week’s champ “Shazam!” and Paramount’s horror pic “Pet Sematary.”
“Hellboy,” the reboot that includes “Stranger Things” actor David Harbour taking on the role of the red-skinned superhero, looks to have the best start among new releases. The R-rated fantasy film based on Mike Mignola’s graphic novels is expected to earn $16 million to $20 million.
Directed by Neil Marshall, “Hellboy” follows the half-demon superhero caught between the supernatural and human world. This iteration is the third live-action and first R-rated “Hellboy” movie.
