The hype is real for David Harbour’s “Hellboy,” and Entertainment Weekly has published a new image of the star in action.
In the first-look, a very ripped Hellboy is standing on the street alongside Sasha Lane (as Alice Monaghan) and Daniel Dae Kim (as Major Ben Daimio). Whether they are getting ready to engage with an enemy or are just staring at something is unclear. But either way, Hellboy looks pissed.
“It’s not an origin story, but it’s his coming to terms with where he came from,” Harbour told EW. “He’s been Hellboy for a long time, but there’s a new turn of events at the start of the film, where people start to bring up the fact that he might bring about the end of the world, and it’s really the first time he’s heard anything like that. The question that comes up in the movie is where does he really belong?”
Directed by Neil Marshall and written by Mike Mignola, Andrew Cosby, Christopher Golden and Aron Coleite and produced by Lawrence Gordon, Lloyd Levin and Mike Richardson, “Hellboy” hits theaters April 12, 2019.
Alongside Harbour, Kim and Lane, “Hellboy” also stars Milla Jovovich and Ian McShane.
The first “Hellboy” earned a worldwide total of $99 million at the box office and starred Perlman and Selma Blair. Its sequel performed better, earning $160 million worldwide. Although the movies weren’t runaway smash hits, critics loved them, with each earning a score in the 80s on Rotten Tomatoes.
