Last night, the newest Hellboy trailer hit right at midnight…two 12 am trailer drops in a row, let’s not make this a trend, guys…and with it, came a bit of a course correction.
Reaction to the initial trailer was pretty mixed, with the music and tone as presented causing some worry among the faithful. This latest trailer pulls expectations into a slightly different direction – focusing firmly on the mythos of the character and the villain of the piece: Nimue the Blood Queen.
And, we get Ben transforming into a were-jaguar! And Giants! And more Baba Yaga! Comics fidelity looks to be the name of the game here.
It’s also very R-rated, and has f-bombs and blood to spare. Does it succeed in ramping up your expectations? Check it out below and sound off in the comments:
