A New Trailer Has Dropped For The Hellboy Reboot

A new trailer has dropped for the Hellboy movie reboot.

The two minute long clip shows that the reboot of the comic book franchise will be bloodier, more violent and choc full of more swear words than the first one.

David Harbour, from Stranger Things, is still Mr Hellboy and it honestly looks incredible.

The latest attempt at bringing the Dark Horse Comics character to the big screen takes a significantly different approach to the character than the first attempt, which was made by Guillermo Del Toro and starred Ron Perlman, back in 2004.

In fact, this new R-Rated version of the film looks to have taken a leaf out of Deadpool's book - which isn't actually that silly a move given how successful that film and its sequel Deadpool 2 proved to be.

While the Perlman and Del Toro films were relative successes, this new film promises to be a complete departure from that whole schtick.

With that in mind, Hellboy's original creator Mike Mignola decided to take the whole thing in a different direction and start from scratch by rebooting the character.

To that end, he hired Neil Marshall, who had previously worked on productions like Game of Thrones.

Mignola told Deadline: "We went back and forth on that.

"Early on there was some idea of continuing the storyline that del Toro had started but would that be fair to a new director?

"So we decided to just start over. Neil is a horror director, so the idea then was to make a darker film. If you are going to use a guy, let him do what he does best."

More to follow.
