With the Captain Marvel movie right around the corner, studios are dropping their big new movie trailers. We had Dark Phoenix yesterday. And today it’s a new Hellboy trailer!
I’m still largely on the fence about this one…maybe. There’s no doubt I’m going to see it, because I go see everything. It’s what I do. But as per this trailer, the new Hellboy only speaks in quips. Weird.
I’m also still not sold on this new guy. He’s no Ron Perlman. Everything else in the movie looks pretty cool, though.
A couple new big trailers hit the internet this week, and they’re both OK. One is better than the other, but I’m not blown away by either.
First up is the new Hellboy, which is going for a more comedic tone than the first two Hellboy films — which I regard as classics.
That’s David Harbour as Hellboy and, I gotta say, I’m not yet convinced. It’s hard not to see Ron Perlman’s version looming over him. But I’ll definitely be giving this film a chance.
Next up is Men in Black: International, starring Tessa Thompson and Chris Hemsworth as the new lead agents. I don’t really care for this trailer.
I just don’t like it. I don’t like the feel of it. I don’t like the way its edited. It’s not as sharp as it should be for the Men in Black. It feels like it’s going to lean really heavily into Tessa Thompson being a wunderkind.
But people enjoyed the first Men in Black movie, have probably forgotten the second and third (which I’ve never seen), so this one will probably be a success. I mean, I’ll go see it in the theater. I love going to the movies!
They’re making a new Hellboy movie, which is fine. I’m disappointed that it’s not Hellboy 3 with Ron Perlman, but we can’t always get what we want. The new film is slated to come out January 11, 2019, which is an insane release date for a movie. January is usually a dumping grounds…but I suppose studios have been trying to reclaim it.
Anyway, the studio and actor David Harbour shared the first look at the new Hellboy!
And his hair is dumb. I mean, come on! First of all, he looks exactly like Perlman, which is just weird. And second, long hair? How thought that was a good idea? He looks silly! So so silly.
