Just last night Lionsgate gave birth to the red band trailer for Neil Marshall’s “R”-rated Hellboy, giving us an ultraviolent look at “Stranger Things” star David Harbour as the new Big Red, and now some new images have emerged placing Harbour’s titular character and Milla Jovovich’s Nimue in the spotlight.
The images are from the movie’s official Twitter account and show Hellboy sporting his iconic gun, the Samaritan, as he talks to his partner, the magic-wielding Alice Monaghan. The other image showcases Big Red in a full-body shot.
As for Nimue, her image appears to be set in the past, before she became the villain known as the Blood Queen. Set against a bleak backdrop, with her wooden crown and red cloak, it definitely brings the feeling of the occult that Marshall has promised in his gory R-rated take on Mike Mignola’s source material.
Also starring: Ian McShane as Professor Broom; Daniel Dae Kim as Major Ben Daimio; Penelope Mitchell as Ganeida; and Sasha Lane as Alice Monaghan with Sophie Okonedo (After Earth), Brian Gleeson (mother!) and Alistair Petrie (The Night Manager, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story).
Hellboy returns on April 12, 2019.
