According to the Hellboy thread on Reddit, it seems that moviegoers are in for another trailer for the upcoming David Harbour movie. If you look at the listing below, it seems that anew trailer for the movie will be attached to Greta, which is a thriller starring Chloe Grace Moretz. Considering the genre, it’s no surprise that this would be fitting for Hellboy to show up during the previews.
According to the listing, the trailer is two minutes and twenty-three seconds, which is about six seconds longer than the original trailer that was released in December. This moveis definitely to reach a bigger audience, as the first trailer didn’t really have the most positive reaction (even though I loved it). Hellboy creator, Mike Mignola said that this trailer is “so much better” than the first and also went on to talk about the differences between this latest incarnation and Guillermo Del Toro’s original two films:
“Well, I mean, if anything, we’re trying to do something very different,” the writer explained. “Basically, there’s no part of Hellboy that was ever going to be like other superhero movies. And the more Marvel stuff there is, the more DC stuff there is, Hellboy never really feels like—even in the [Guillermo] del Toro things—a superhero movie.”
“It’s so much “big teams of guys, in costumes, running around and saving the world from big cosmic menace stuff…” I believe the new movie will feel even less like a regular superhero thing,” Mignola continued. “The idea with this one was to make it play much less like a superhero film, to downplay the superhero elements even more than del Toro did. This one is much more folklore/mythology/horror, and not ‘big team rushing into to do battle with whatever kind of stuff.'”
Hellboy hits theaters April 12th.
