David Harbour and the Cast of ‘Hellboy’ Discuss Key Aspects of the Film at NYCC 2018 Panel

The Hellboy panel at New York Comic Con pleased fans with a first glimpse at Neil Marshall’s upcoming reboot (and the secret footage will hopefully be released for everyone who wasn’t at the panel soon) and offered some candid comments from the cast and Marshall himself.

The panel featured David Harbour, Milla Jovovich (via satellite), Daniel Dae Kim, Sasha Lane and Mike Mignola.  One of the main topics discussed was the difference between the new film and the earlier Guillermo Del Toro films, and one of the main differences seems to be a more ‘faithful” take on the character and his comic book roots according to Mignola.  The original creator stated that “I’m really excited to be part of those conversations. This version is so close to the comic that we will be able to go back to the comic to pick what happens next.”  Mignola was also praised Marshall, saying “It was actually very sweet, when the producers were initially talking about Neil, they asked me if I would write an email and tell him that I wanted him to do the movie.  I was like, ‘What the hell would he care what I think?’ But I think he was really appreciative.” read more

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
