Fans waiting to see Neil Marshall and David Harbour’s take on Hellboy will have to wait just a little longer -- the movie’s release has been pushed from January to April.
Summit Entertainment announced on Wednesday that April 12, 2019 is the updated premiere date for the rebooted Hellboy, per The Hollywood Reporter. The movie had previously been set for Jan. 11.
Marshall and Harbour’s Hellboy will now open the week after DC’s Shazam!, where it will face down several other releases, including Robert Downey Jr.'s The Voyage of Doctor Dolittle; Breakthrough, starring Chrissy Metz and Topher Grace; and the YA adaptation After.
No reason was given for the change of dates.
Despite the delay, there is significant speculation that the first Hellboy trailer will debut soon. Hellboy creator Mike Mignola and several actors from the film are slated to appear on a panel at New York Comic Con on Oct. 6, and many are anticipating a teaser to be released.
Debuting in theaters on April 12, 2019, 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.
