Hellboy: Cast and plot
The fantasy-horror comic stars David Harbour (Chief Hopper from Stranger Things). The film also stars Milla Jovovich and Ian McShane.
The film was directed by Neil Marshall, the British filmmaker behind Dog Soldiers, The Descent, and several episodes of Game Of Thrones.
According to Empire Online, the movie is a separate continuity from the previous Hellboy films. Judging by the trailer, it looks like we’ll also see Hellboy’s origin story done anew.
What is Hellboy’s origin story?
According to Empire Online, Hellboy is a demon, summoned in an experiment by the Nazis and Russian sorcerer Rasputin to turn the tide of World War II.
“The ritual is interrupted by Allied forces, guided by scientist Trevor Bruttenholm who adopts the young Hellboy and takes him under his wing. He grows up as one of the good guys, using his stony Right Hand Of Doom to ward off supernatural terrors, and fighting as part of the BPRD – the Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense. But despite his upbringing in the light side, Hellboy’s destiny is to bring about the end of the world.”
