Hellboy is finally coming back after over a decade hiatus since Hellboy II: the Golden Army. While the new chapter is continuing with Guillermo Del Toro‘s series of films, the newest trailer showcases a more action-packed and violent version of the character now played by Stranger Things‘ David Harbour.
The first trailer for Hellboy 2019 was received with lukewarm reactions, with many saying tonally it looks unexciting. It didn’t showcase what many fans were promised with this reboot, showing only very little glimpses of the purposed R-rating the reboot was said to get. Now with this new Red-Band trailer, fans are given more of a raw glimpse of what they were initially promised with the return of the comic book character.
The new trailer not only has a ton of fantastical action set pieces and violence to go with it, but shows more swearing and a glimpse of Hellboy’s origin, all set to an epic cover of Smoke on the Water. With all that in mind, fans have become pretty excited for the new direction with the character and only have a few short months left to wait.
Watch the full trailer below before Hellboy hits theaters on April 12th, 2019.
