In less than four months, the new Hellboy opens in theaters everywhere and star David Harbour has posted a motion poster from the upcoming reboot to build anticipation.
Shared on the actor's Instagram account, the image depicts the titular devilish hero charging a sword with a bolt of lightning as he stands atop a rock in front of an apocalyptic horizon, the new poster looks straight from a heavy metal album cover.

Awwwww, crap... Look who’s coming in April. No, not the 50% still left of the Avengers - hell, that’s practically May... April 12th showers bring one Big Red Flower, beast of the apocalypse, The right hand of doom, the buttkicker of the BPRD, and a host of all kinds of big ole giants and witches and fairies and janky overgrown ugly pig monsters from your nightmares. Trailer drops Thursday #aboutdamntime #hellboy 😈
Along with the motion poster, Harbour's post confirms previous reports from earlier this week that the first trailer for the film will debut on Thursday.
While footage from the upcoming reboot was shown to attendees at this past October's New York Comic Con, the film has yet to unveil clips online of creator Mike Mignola's hellish demon hunter in action. Based on the posters and images released so far to the general public, the new film is looking to be a darker, more violent adaptation than the two films directed by Guillermo Del Toro.
Opening on April 12, 2019, director Neil Marshall’s Hellboy stars David Harbour as Hellboy, Ian McShane as Trevor Bruttenholm, Milla Jovovich as Nimue, Sasha Lane as Alice Monaghan, Penelope Mitchell as Ganeida and Daniel Dae Kim as Ben Daimio.
