New HELLBOY Featurette Focuses on the Film's Loyalty to the Source Material
Regardless of what you think about the upcoming Hellboy movie, there is someone who is extremely excited about it, and that someone is Hellboy creator Mike Mignola. He recently shared the following on Twitter:
There’s also a new featurette that has been released that focuses on how much the film is loyal to the source material. In the video, Mignola says:
“There’s so many moments directly from the comic. The focus is one story but bringing in it enough elements that you get a look at a big Hellboy world.”
The featurette also includes interviews with members of the cast and crew such as David Harbour, Sasha Lane, Mila Jovovich, Ian McShane, and Daniel Dae Kim. The video is also filled with some fun new footage from the movie.
Here’s the official synopsis for the reboot of Hellboy, which was directed by Neil Marshall. It’s interesting that we’ve seen no interviews with Marshall regarding the film.
Hellboy is back, and he’s on fire. From the pages of Mike Mignola’s seminal work, this action packed story sees the legendary half-demon superhero (David Harbour, “Stranger Things”) called to the English countryside to battle a trio of rampaging giants. There he discovers The Blood Queen, Nimue (Milla Jovovich, Resident Evil series), a resurrected ancient sorceress thirsting to avenge a past betrayal. Suddenly caught in a clash between the supernatural and the human, Hellboy is now hell-bent on stopping Nimue without triggering the end of the world.
Hellboy opens in theaters on April 12th, 2019.
