The new Hellboy movie is currently sitting at a miserable 12% on Rotten Tomatoes. Our review calls it “one of the worst comic book movies ever made.” When that level of negative buzz swirls around a movie, it’s inevitable that stories will begin to emerge which attempt to lay the blame at someone else’s feet – because if there’s one thing that’s remained true in Hollywood since its earliest days, it’s that nobody is going to willingly accept blame if it can be shuffled off elsewhere.
So in the wake of such a poor critical reception, it’s not surprising that a new report has arrived detailing some production troubles on the Hellboy set, including claims that the producers attempted to undermine director Neil Marshall (one of the producer’s attorneys denies this), star David Harbour butted heads with Marshall, and more.

Hellboy arrives next weekend, and we’re not so sure the movie has the goods to get audiences into theater in the way that Lionsgate is hoping. Sure, the presence of David Harbour as Hellboy might be appealing to a certain sect of Stranger Things fans, but otherwise, this looks far less stylish and impressive than what director Guillermo del Toro already did with the Dark Horse comic book property.
If you need anymore convincing that the audience awareness for Hellboy a boost, Lionsgate has debuted what they call an R-rated sizzle reel, which is basically a short red band trailer. The whole point of this tease is to tout all the blood and gore that will be on display, not to mention dropping some salty language. Watch the bloody Hellboy trailer below. Read More »

We’re about to have a barrage of comic book movies unleashed upon us in April. Next week will bring Shazam! into theaters (and apparently it’s pretty damn good), and the end of the month will unleash the highly anticipated box office monster Avengers: Endgame. But sandwiched in between there will be the R-rated reboot of the Dark Horse Comics title Hellboy, and a new clip from the movie features Milla Jovovich as the immortal sorceress Queen Nimue, offering the titular hero (David Harbour of Stranger Things under crazy amounts of make-up) the chance to fulfill his destiny as the beast of the apocalypse.

The celebration of Hellboy Day took place over the weekend, and with it came a new featurette taking us behind the scenes of Lionsgate’s reboot of the Dark Horse Comics property created by Mike Mignola. The new Hellboy featurette puts the focus on the comic material, touting more loyalty to the comics than Guillermo del Toro’s adaptation. Even star David Harbour (Stranger Things) is talking about how this movie is inspired by a specific storyline. Read More »
The first official Hellboy clip has been released, and if you’re already on the fence with this movie, I don’t know if this is going to change that. Here, Trevor Bruttenholm (Ian McShane), adoptive father of Hellboy (David Harbour), lays out a new mission for the big, red demon/superhero. Through it all, Hellboy talks with his mouth full, which is kind of gross. Watch the Hellboy clip below!
