I’m like really trying hard to think of something to say about the first trailer for the upcoming Hellboy film but, to be honest, it just kinda seems like almost every other super hero trailer that I’ve seen recently. You’ve got some one liners. You’ve got some glowering extras. You’ve got some hints of extreme violence. You’ve got a cheesy song playing in the background for some reason. (Mony Mony? Really?) It’s like they took the trailers for Deadpool and Guardians of the Galaxy and they just forced Hellboy into them.
That said, I liked both Deadpool and Guardians of the Galaxy…..
Anyway, Hellboy will be released on April 12th, which is often not a great sign when it comes to films like this. (An April release generally means that the studios is hoping to make a quick buck before the summer blockbusters come along.) On the plus side, Neil Marshall’s usually a pretty good director. So, we’ll see what happens!
