Theatrical Release Date Announced for ‘Hellboy’ Reboot Starring David Harbour

Fans have been excited about the upcoming Hellboy reboot, starring David Harbour of Stranger Things, since franchise creator Mike Mignola first teased an image of Harbour in full makeup back in early September. Today, we’re one step closer to the film being a reality! Lionsgate and Millennium have set the film’s theatrical release for January 11, 2019.

Traditionally, a January release date for a new movie was evidence that the studio did not have much faith in the quality of their product. January has typically been a notorious dumping ground for some of the worst films of all genres. Fortunately, the stigma associated with the month has recently begun to change as studios who have released good movies during the first month of the year have seen strong financial returns. In January of 2017, A Monster Calls and M. Night Shyamalan’s Split both exceeded expectations critically and financially. It turns out, people will pay to see good movies any month of the year, and they’ll stay home for bad ones! read more read more
