With less than three months until it opens in theaters, the Hellboy reboot has released two new posters.
Showcasing David Harbour as the intimidating demon-hunting hero, the first poster is a static version of a motion poster unveiled last month.
Featuring the tagline "Darkness Calls," the line refers to the 2007 Hellboy comic book story of the same name. Written by Mike Mignola and illustrated by Duncan Fegredo, the miniseries will reportedly serve as a strong inspiration for the upcoming reboot, with its tale of Hellboy coming to England to fulfill a prophecy by facing an ancient evil.
The second poster features Harbour's Hellboy in his fully transformed devil state with elongated horns and a fiery crown. In both posters, the demon slayer is seen wielding a large sword, which is strongly suggested to be the legendary Arthurian blade Excalibur. The film's first trailer and subsequent promotional materials have hinted at the mythical sword, which figures prominently in the reboot.
Arriving on 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.
