A scene from the new trailer for Hellboy 2: The Golden Army
I realize that to the general public, Hellboy is even less well known than Iron Man. And then we have the story – a demon from Hell, who battles other demons on behalf of mankind.
Doesn’t exactly sound like happy go lucky family entertainment, does it?
I’m here to tell you to set that all aside if you want to see a kick-ass fantasy action movie with plenty of wit, to boot. Check out the trailer below, which is even better than the first one.
I love the look of this movie: The wild creature designs and the cinematography that looks like Technicolor on steriods. This trailer also gives us a better idea of the actual plot of the film.
Hellboy II: The Golden Army was written and directed by Guillermo del Toro, who is well known for his visually striking films. He was the guy who did the first Hellboy movie as well as Pan’s Labyrinth (which I’m embarrassed to admit I haven’t seen yet).
You really owe it to yourself to go see Hellboy II when it opens on July 11th!
