As marketing ramps up on April's upcoming Hellboy reboot, new photos from the film showcase its cast, including the movie's principal antagonist as played by Resident Evil star Milla Jovovich.
Posted on the film's official Twitter account, Jovovich's Nimue is seen walking through a heavy fog. Given that the comic book character is the witch who, in Arthurian legend, stole the wizard Merlin's magical abilities, the cinematic incarnation will likely follow suit.
Also revealed in the new photos is David Harbour's titular demon hunter walking with B.P.R.D. operative Ben Daimio and the mysterious Alice Monaghan, who figures prominently in Nimue's plot.
The photos come after the premiere of the reboot's first trailer, which was released online yesterday, providing fans with the first official look at the upcoming film and newest cinematic incarnation of Mike Mignola's popular comic book character.
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.
