A new clip from Neil Marshall's upcoming Hellboy reboot has debuted, featuring Ian McShane's Trevor Bruttenholm on a recruitment mission to spur David Harbour's titular character into action against a "giant problem."
The clip focuses on Bruttenholm, aka the Professor, educating a pizza-eating Hellboy on the Osiris Club as allies in a world built on secret societies. As he waxes on about how they team up to stop supernatural threats, Hellboy seems bothered by the fact he's being called into duty, alluding to his version of the Osiris Club being a "strip club from Jersey."
However, as they get deeper into the mission at hand, his handler reveals the quest with this particular British occult club that originated in the 1800s is going to be against none other than Giants. As fans would know from the comics this reboot is based on, as well as from the clips seen so far, this particular journey to the English countryside to battle a trio of rampaging giants is what leads to the hero discovering Milla Jovovich's Nimue, aka the Blood Queen.
There, Big Red will have to battle the resurrected ancient sorceress, who's thirsting to avenge a past betrayal and trigger the end of the world. In addition to this, Nimue will be looking to secure Hellboy's heart as part of her mission to raise a new era of darkness.
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 and bloodier than its predecessor and is set to tell a different story with a slightly different 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.
