David Harbour Promises Action and Practical Effects in ‘Hellboy: Rise of the Blood Queen’

It appears that the new Hellboy reboot (Rise of the Blood Queen) will follow in the footsteps of the previous two Guillermo del Toro films when it comes to excitement and practical effects.

The Stranger Things star spoke to MTV on the red carpet at the recent Golden Globe Awards and said that “It was the hardest job I’ve ever done.  The action that I’m doing in the movie, the rolling around on the ground and punching — things that a 40-year-old man should not be doing — and on top of that, the tremendous amount of prosthetics and makeup, but at the end of the day we would shoot some pretty beautiful stuff. And pretty unique stuff for this type of universe.”

Classic monster make-up fans will also be pleased to hear that “A lot of it [was] very practical. Practical monsters and practical fights — not a lot of CGI.”

What monsters may await fans in director Neil Marshall’s film?  According to Harbour’s conversation with Collider, the actor is excited to “…get to carve out an entirely new mythos to this guy and I get to play on this big palette of witches and giants and demons.”

Hellboy: Rise of the Blood Queen will be released on January 11, 2019.
