With Neil Marshall's Hellboy reboot drawing nearer, the movie's official Twitter account has released four new posters that signal the hell to come.
The Twitter post accompanying the posters reads, "Sunrise to sunset, he’s ready to kick your ass! #Hellboy." The first two focus on the cast itself with David Harbour's Big Red front and center, rocking his Samaritan gun in one hand and a sword in the other. The rest of his allies are given secondary focus, but the images do paint a succinct picture of what's to ensue as they all team up to stop the end of the world.
We see fiery backgrounds indicating the apocalypse is coming in the second poster, with creatures such as the Giants and the dark English countryside (a nod to "The Wild Hunt") also being played up. Of course, we see Milla Jovovich's Nimue, aka the Blood Queen, and her coven raising literal hell as they seek revenge for the punishment inflicted on her ages before.
The final two posters, though, are a bit more minimal and Hellboy-centric. One focuses on the titular character with his sword and crown of flames, while the other paints a more angst-ridden Hellboy, as we see everything below his torso dissolving into drips of blood. Both clearly evoke the direction the reboot is taking, highlighting that it's going to be bloodier and gorier than the two films Guillermo del Toro did.
In addition to "The Wild Hunt," the upcoming film will adapt elements of two other Hellboy story arcs: "Darkness Calls" and "The Storm and the Fury." The R-rated reboot will be darker than its predecessor and is set to tell a different story with a slightly different take on the character.
Arriving April 12, 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.
