On April 12th, superhero film Hellboy will be released in theaters based on the Dark Horse Comics series. It is a reboot of the Hellboy film series and is the third live-action installment in the film series. The film draws inspiration from the comic books Darkness Calls, The Wild Hunt, and The Storm and the Fury.
According to First Post, “Hellboy and the US Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense, comprising agents Alice Monaghan (The Miseducation of Cameron Post‘s Sasha Lane) and Ben Daimio (Lost’s Daniel Dae Kim) and led by Trevor Bruttenholm (Ian McShane of Deadwood fame) get ready to save the world from the resurrected sorceress Nimue aka The Blood Queen aka Lady of The Lake (Milla Jovovich), who seeks to bring the apocalypse to Earth and destroy all mankind.”
Created by artist Mike Mignola, Hellboy was first published in 1993 by Dark Horse Comics. The comic garnered a cult following and many came to love story of the anti-hero Hellboy. The series immediately gained attention in Hollywood when Oscar award-winning filmmaker Guillermo del Toro turned the books into a film series — Hellboy (2004) and Hellboy II: The Golden Army (2008). Both films were critically and commercially successful.
Neil Marshall, who was the mastermind behind the cult horror film The Descent and Game of Thrones episodes ‘Blackwater’ and ‘The Watchers on the Wall’, is director of the latest installment of Hellboy.
