As Neil Marshall's reboot of Hellboy prepares to hit theaters in less than a month, a new promo for the film provides a brief introduction to the hero and plenty of action.
Released through the film's official Twitter account, the promo shows London under threat from the villain Nimue. Meanwhile, Hellboy obtains a flaming sword and crown and uses his empowered right hand to drive back the forces of evil before the world is plunged into complete ruin.
"You came into this world summoned from the depths of hell as a weapon turned into a force for good," observes a woman recounting Hellboy's origins. Then, his father figure Trevor Bruttenholm reminds him of both the stakes and his hellish destiny.
The promo ends with Hellboy embracing his full demonic potential as he faces down Nimue and her armies of darkness, using his abilities unfettered for good with appropriately devastating results.
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.
