The trailer for the upcoming film Hellboy has dropped and there is one unmistakable person featuring that's got Brits falling in love - Big Mo from BBC's EastEnders, with a machine gun.

Laila Morse (Big Mo), who stars alongside David Harbour, Ian McShane and Daniel Dea Kim, makes her appearance in a London chipshop - not Ian Beale's 'Beale's Plaice', but one actually spotted by eagle-eyes viewers called 'Codswallop'.

In the clip Morse says: "Oi, I need some ID, love."

To which Hellboy replies: "Are you serious?" - well, he doesn't seem to do incognito well.

She's next spotted wielding a massive machine gun - seems a bit odd, but stranger things have happened in EastEnders.

Obviously fans of the long-running soap have been losing it since Mo was spotted and there's been plenty of comments on Twitter about her part in the upcoming reboot.

On person posted: "Big Mo is in the new #Hellboy film, just in case you needed another reason to go see it."


A third commented: "Not here for #Hellboy so much as Big Mo running a chippy."

The world first got a look at the comic-book anti-hero Hellboy back in 2004 when Guillermo Del Toro brought it all to life on the big screen with none other than Ron Perlman taking the horns (or not in Hellboy's case) as 'Big Red'.

But the announcement of the new film comes just days after world got to really see David Harbour take on the massive, iconic, role.

And with a new cast this film is heading in a dark direction with an R-rated version - taking a leaf out of Deadpool's book, a smart move to make due to the success of both the first film and its sequel.

Although, the 2004 film (and it's 2008 sequel) weren't unsuccessful Hellboy's original creator Mike Mignola decided to take the whole thing in a different direction and start from scratch by rebooting the character.

He 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."
