The Hellboy trailer has been unleashed, featuring star David Harbour as the titular hero.
The Stranger Things actor stars as the title character, and will be joined by Ian McShane who plays Hellboy’s adoptive father, Professor Trevor Bruttenholm (aka Professor Broom), Milla Jovovich as villain Nimue aka the Blood Queen, Sasha Lane will play Alice Monaghan, Penelope Mitchell will play the elder witch Ganeida, and Daniel Dae Kim is playing Major Ben Daimio.
When asked about the character, Harbour said the following: “He has a heart that’s really good and with a lot of this crusted-over stuff. What I’m dealing with in Hellboy is a lot different, bigger in a certain way. It’s very Shakespearean. It’s demons and witches and stuff like that. But it has a similar core to a dude who’s trapped in horrible circumstances who’s just trying to be a good guy.”
Neil Marshall will direct from a script by Andrew Cosby, Christopher Golden, and the character’s creator, Mike Mignola. Larry Gordon and Lloyd Levin will produce with Mike Richardson of Dark Horse Entertainment.
