Like those HELLBOY II pics? How about a ton more... moving at 24 a second?

Ahoy, squirts! Quint here. As Merrick pointed out a few hours back, the HELLBOY II trailer is on the horizon... well, now it's over the horizon and... um... headed into your eye-holes? Looks like they threw every thing in this damn trailer (although no Johann... guess they're saving him for the film). But the trailer is huge. Epic. Stupendous! Extravagant! More words! Look for yourself! YOU WOKE UP THE BABY!!!

    its too bad they actually kept the "2" in the title but the movie looks quite fun and cool. so since his voice is used in this trailer too, does this mean john hurt makes some sorta appearance? like a dream or ghost or something?

    I wonder if there will be a third hellboy if Del Toro directs the hobbit? <p> The scale for the film looks much more grand than that of the first hellboy.

  • April 3, 2008, 3:13 p.m. CST


    by Transmetropolitan

    I dont see how my fellow fanboys can be excited about this. First one was crap, this looks like more crap. Wicked lame, just because he is a good director doesn't make all his movies good. Dark Knight and Iron Man will totally own this, honestly I think Wanted looks more entertaining than this shit. So cheesy, such corny set work, this trailer could have swayed my mind but nope. Sorry Hellboy, I'm not your guy, friend.

    Shit, not again...

    by Bass Bastardson

    I am so sick of the bad guy coercing the good guy with the whole "you're an outsider "To them, you're just a freak... Like ME!!!" crap. I already felt like TDN was lifting that bit wholesale from Spiderman 1 and now Hellboy is going down the same road? Anyhoo, Hellboy 2 looks ok but I thank god I won't have to deal with this crap in Iron Man.

  • April 3, 2008, 3:24 p.m. CST

    Also, why do this trailer...

    by Bass Bastardson

    and the previous trailer, both feel the need to set-up the Hellboy universe through voice-over like no one knows what the movie is? It feels like a trailer for a "part 1", not a sequel to a modest hit that runs on cable every single day. If people don't know that there is "A Secret goverment org... blah, blah, blah" Then they obviously don't care already.

  • April 3, 2008, 3:24 p.m. CST

    Bastardson, the whole outsider theme was in the comics...

    by rbatty024

    long before the Spider-Man movie. Maybe they should have avoided it because it had been done before in a comic book film, but at least they're not stealing from other movies, they're taking the theme straight from the source material.

  • April 3, 2008, 3:25 p.m. CST

    Didn't like Hellboy at all

    by flickchick85

    I did love Pan's Labyrinth, but the script for this one seems just as cheesy as the 1st one. But the visuals! Someone gave Guillermo a bigger budget! I may have to see this for the pretty pictures alone. It still bugs me how plastic-faced some of the characters (especially Hellboy) look, though, but I'll get over it.

  • April 3, 2008, 3:26 p.m. CST

    That looks Amazing!

    Awww....Helll Naaahh... "It's Hell Boy"

    by qtipsq

    The first one was probably the most under rated super hero action movie of all time. I liked it better than the first X-Men, the third Spiderman, and all the loose garbage in the middle such as Daredevil, Elcktra, and X-Men 3. So yes this movie is going to rock, especially after Pan's success, one can see all the influences within this movie of what Guillmero has evolved into, and damn what a trailer.

    "You woke up the baby," indeed

    by nerosday

    This baby almost pissed himself that really looks good. I made the mistake of not seeing the first Hellboy in theaters, but I'm definitely shelling out the cost of admission for this one.

    by CuervoJones

    ...the word "overrated"

  • April 3, 2008, 3:30 p.m. CST

    TOO much going on.


    i mean, i like the visuals, but what i like best about the hellboy comics and art is the atmosphere, and pacing...the simple panles. they are arlready pre-directed in storyboard perfection. ..god knows it's too SLOW for hollywood. <P> the first one took some notes from the comics and condensed them, this one tries too hard to cram in everything from the comics and still keep adding on mythos.<P> just looks crowded as all fuck, and that's from a fan who cares.

  • April 3, 2008, 3:33 p.m. CST

    and seriously


    do we have to save the entire world in every film? the best hellboy is like the best x-files. small digestable episodes versus werewolves, goblins, etc. this one looks so big it's like they are just going to keep topping each other.<P> next one will be hellboy versus god himself to save the universe.

    Hellboy 2: The Golden Shower

    by Frodo T. Baggins

    Looks badass. But if I ever met Del Tora I would ask him 1 question....Whats your fucking deal with tentacles?! Didnt we get enough of that in Hellyboy 1? And since I would be asking him that person. The next thing I would do is give him a propper HJ

    Another CGI orgy

    by Ya Boy

    For once can we get a sequel that doesn't think "more CGI" is the answer to "How will we top the first movie?" Too many CG creatures, most of whom look incredibly goofy. And even though it's not finished work, these effects don't look great. This was the wrong choice for Guillermo del Toro to followup Pan's Labyrinth with. A big step backwards.

    gibsonUSA, the first one's a moderate hit...

    by jig98

    with mixed reviews,it surpassed the budget when released 4 years ago. it didn't explode like spidey or pirates because of the continuing popularity of the passion of the christ and the scooby doo sequel. but it was a surprise smash on dvd. which spawned 2 animated t.v features, a popular toy line and then yes, the live action sequel coming in july. looks great.

    one gripe about hellboy 1


    the subway fight scene. <P> i can even dig on the box of kittens, but watch those scenes over again and you ask yourself- why did no one run away? and if they didn't run away, why didn't they look more scared or enthralled at the fight between hellboy and the monster?<P> they all hammed fear horribly, and switch positions from cut to cut. the whole time standing there like the crowd in that old PIT FIGHTER video game.

    by Bass Bastardson

    I know. It is a staple of a lot of comic books. And I'm not just talking about the outsider aspect, but the incessant paralleling of the hero and the villain, with the villain giving the whole "can you see that you and I are really the same? You should be on my side" speech. The thing is that we've already touched on this theme and heard these words at least once in a(fairly) recent and massively successful major comic book movie and now we will be getting it twice again this summer. I'm just bored. Why couldn't they have done something else?

    The problem I had with the first

    by mr.underwater

    Was that while every set-piece had rising and falling action, the movie as a whole didn't.<br><br>The stakes at the end of the film were exactly the same as they were at the beginning, resulting in a film that felt repetitive and not terribly engaging.<br><br>So while it seems the second installment is "bigger" and has certainly upped the monster quotient, if the above arc problems aren't addressed, it will probably be another under whelming experience<br><br>The first movie seems to have taken a lot of cues from Ghostbusters (working class supernatural pest removal). I hope for the second they adopt more than the concept and tone from Ghostbusters, and adopt the overall arc as well. It starts with a single spook in a library, and ends with a giant monster smashing the city. That's raising the stakes. And is also why GB was ultimately a hellava lot more engaging.

    Blade II was fucking incredible!

    by kungfuhustler84

    Blade I did a great job of establishing a realistic world with a dark tone that suited the subject matter perfectly. Del Toro made it slightly less realistic but simultaneously more visceral and comic booky, which is fine, since that's what the subject matter was based on. And haters need to shut the hell up about Del Toro's problems with pacing. The scene in part 2 where all the vampire hunters are in the club is paced perfectly and the whole thing flows like a crazy comic book. Pan's Labyrinth was easily one of the greatest films of 2007. You can watch it once and get someting out of it, but every time you watch it after that, if you look closely and immerse yourself in the story, you can get something else out of it every time. Del Toro is perfect for Hellboy. He loves the original material and it looks like he is putting as much passion and precision into this project as he has his greatest stuff. I seriously doubt it will win any awards, but damn if it won't be a good time at the movies.

  • April 3, 2008, 7:37 p.m. CST

    Monster M*A*S*H

    by bswise

    Well they've certainly responded to the criticism that Hellboy basically fights the same monster over and over and over and over and over (and over) again in the first one. This does look better all-around and Selma Blair sure can look incredibly hot just by standing there with that goth-chick pout thing going on.

    by occula

    i don't really think 'hack' is the right word to describe an award-winning director like del toro. you might not like his movies, you might think he's an asshole, but 'hack' implies some untalented n00b puppeted by a movie studio, stumbling around a film set with his head up his ass. hacks? brett ratner. robert luketic. perhaps even our good pal mcg.

    This movie is going to bomb and it deserves to. The first movie was decent at absolute best, and it's conceited to even make a sequel, let alone release it when they are in July. Del Toro is a one-trick-pony. You cannot deny it.

    I learned a lesson in 1999 and again in 2003. In 1999 it was all about The Phantom Menace and a little movie called The Matrix came in a changed the game. In the summer of 2003 it was supposed to be all about The Matrix Reloaded and then X2 came in and kicked more tail than Pele. So the point is, I really think this summer is anybody's game. I eagerly await for Indy, TDK, Iron Man, Hellboy, Wall-E, Hulk, etc. That's the best part- getting the chance to sit back, watch, enjoy, and discuss. Peace.

    <i>how did Hellboy get it's cues from Ghostbusters? Oh, and maybe you aren't aware it was a comic book before a movie...</i><br><br>It was a comic? No kidding?<br><br>Oh wait, I've read a few of the comics. They were gothic, Lovecraftian, mysteries. The movie, uh, was not. More like a bunch of working stiffs kicking some supernatural ass in order to save good ol' NYC. Much like, uh, Ghostbusters.<br><br>Thinking back, Blade II had pretty much the same problem, a bunch of neat individual vignettes, but not much an overall arc.

    Basically, If you don't think that Ghostbusters

    by mr.underwater

    Was a huge source of inspiration in turning the book into a movie, you're serious kidding yourself<br><br>I'm not saying this is a bad thing at all. You can aspire to be far, far worse than Ghostbusters.<br><br>I just think they overlooked a pretty huge reason for GB's goodness. It was engaging. Shit got crazier and crazier with every plot development.

    uVa got a point re Yahoo trailers

    by Womb2dooM

    It took me a couple of goes to get it to play straight through...<P>NICE trailer though! I love that Del Toro can fill the screen with the most fantastical of creatures and have them grounded in a physical reality. For that alone, I love the guy! The man does not like CGI. He can't do them and he knows it so he keeps it to the absolute minimum. Remember the Gumby-ninja vs Gumby-Blade fight in front of the wall of UV lights in Blade 2? Ew...

    Nice to see some variety in the creatures this time

    by Osmosis Jones

    One thing that dragged the first down was that Hellboy kept beating the hell out of the SAME CREATURE for two hours. This time, it seems that Del Toro got enough clout from the wonderful Pan's Labyrinth (best film of 2006) to considerably up the budget. This looks like it will be great.

  • April 3, 2008, 10:37 p.m. CST

    When Hellboy came out...

    by micturatingbenjamin

    I was a projectionist. I got to see the first one for free, and didn't feel like I was ripped off, but understood it wouldn't be everyone's cup o' tea.<p>However, it had the three key elements for me: Nazis, occult stuff, and Cthulu Mythos type stuff. Mix it together with Ron Perlman, and you got Hellboy, one of my favorite low budget superhero actioners.<p>It should be said, as well, that I really dug Blade II, and that's what got me interested in Del Toro as a director. I liked HB, and this looks fucking great. They gave him money and a 2nd AD, and fucking 2nd Unit...It's gonna be a great little flick that could, and there's more than enough room on the summer slate for Dark Knight, Iron Man, and Indy as well as this. Hell, I hope they ALL do well. And they might, since I'm going to see all of them at the theater.

  • April 3, 2008, 10:45 p.m. CST


    by BurgerTime

    criminally good. Nice creature work. CGI looks pretty solid. But would you expect any less from del Toro? Probably not.

  • April 3, 2008, 10:53 p.m. CST

    Wow. I keep forgetting that this movie's coming out

    by Juggernaut125

    <p>More and more this is looking like a fantastic time to be a movie geek. Specially a movie geek who isn't an asshole who thinks the sun rises and sets according to his opinion.</p> <p>TDK, Iron Man, Indy 4, Hellboy 2, Wall-E, and I guess the Hulk too, although I still haven't seen the trailer, and I was planning on boycotting it seeing as I liked Ang Lee's version and wanted a sequel to that one. The theatres are going to be getting a LOT of my hard earned cash this summer.</p>

    fucking hated hellboy

    by robertplant

    but I'll see the fuck outta this movie. Looks fan-go-damn-tastic. Something was just...too small about the first one. I love Mike Mignola's art but couldnt get into the Hellboy comics...this will be to hellboy what dark knight will be to batman begins, except batman begins was way better than hellboy...oh well. 2 diff genres. you get me, except the haters...9/11 inside job!

    Jurassic Park: The Lost World

    by Mr Gorilla

    God I remember being pumped up about that film. Spielberg, the proven god of popcorn treats, had shown in Schindlers' List that he could also do so much more... So when he went back to Jurassic Park I was imagining an genre film with added artistic, intellectual and emotional punch. Like The Shining, or The Good, The Bad and The Ugly, or Cross of Iron. But instead all we got was a crappy sequel in which the lighting was a bit darker.

  • April 4, 2008, 4:21 a.m. CST

    which is to say

    by Mr Gorilla

    that just because Pan's Labyrinth was utterly brilliant, it doesn't mean this will be any good. The trailer looks horrible. But, you know, we live in hope...

    by pipergates

    Looks better each time...Love the opening auction sequence in the new trailer...The elf guy is perfect..His slide and slash attack very nice...His sister is intriguing...The glimpse of the fabled Troll Market is far out.. Perleman is made for Hellboy, as Jim Carrey is made for the Mask. It will be a good summer at the movies.

    Potentially awful??? The Mummy???

    by jaws8u

    Yeah, because the first Mummy was a motion picture masterpiece. Why don't you watch them back to back? They are both terrible. The first Hell Boy was good, not great, but good. This has the potential to be absolutely epic, and has basically no shot of deserving reference in the same sentence as any movie starring Brendan Fraser (except maybe The Quiet American, though I cannot imagine the reference).

    I fucktastically agree

    by Franklin T Marmoset

    I didn't love the first film, but I thought it was decent enought and I loved the central character as played by Ron Perlman. After all, a guy who loves cats and works out while listening to Tom Waits is exactly my kind of guy. So, I've got high hopes for this sequel. If Mr del Toro can take what was good about part one and meld it with the brilliance of Pan's Labyrinth (which is what the trailer looks like to me), this could be yet another excellent part two comic book film.

  • April 4, 2008, 7:54 a.m. CST

    But surely the army of mid-sized magical robots in Hellboy II is worth at least two giant robots in any other film, yes yes? <p> And what about the magical terracotta army in The Mummy III -- mud robots!

  • April 4, 2008, 8:36 a.m. CST

    Can't get the damn link to work...

    by Wungolioth

    ...but from the previous trailer I'm excited about this movie. Had the chance to catch the first movie recently and found that I liked it a lot better now than when it was in theaters, and I think that Del Toro has learned a few things about what works in SFX and what doesn't. Pan's Labyrinth seems to have been a broadening experience for him, and the artistic level in this one just looks vastly superior to the first. As someone else also said, this may be the closest we'll ever get to seeing Elric in a movie.

  • April 4, 2008, 8:49 a.m. CST

    I like Del Torro but...

    by skycrapper

    by The Bandit

    was just ok for me, but after a repeat viewings it grew on me a lot. I'm a fan of the book and thought the movie did it justice. I wasnt to impressed with anything on the new film UNTIL this trailer, very cool! I still hate Tambor though, he doesnt fit in the universe in my opinion, hes my major gripe, takes me out of the film when hes onscreen.

    Del Toro Is An Ineffective Storyteller

    by Saluki

    He brings all of the right ingredients together, but simply doesn't make them all work together. He needs some more effective scriptwriters and maybe a an editor that'll find something new in his work. Great guy all-around, of course, but I don't pay $8.50 just on personality.

    Re: Tambor

    by rbatty024

    Sometimes Tambor has the unfortunate habit of hamming it up. I think that marred his performance in the first half of Hellboy. However, I really liked the bonding scene between his character and Hellboy over their cigars. Hopefully he's less cartoonish bureaucrat and a little more nuanced in this version.
