First Look: Hellboy and His BFG!
We all know what Hellboy looks like, but we ain't never seen a gun this big before! The very first still from Hellboy II: The Golden Army has been released and for any self-righteous Hellboy fan, this is exciting as hell! In the first movie we saw plenty of "The Good Samaritan", Hellboy's standard revolver that's enormous in size itself, but it still doesn't compare to this bad boy. In the meantime while we await the very first trailer for Hellboy II, which is supposed to arrive sometime in December, this photo and those theatrical banners should hold anxious fans over.
And if you don't know what a BFG is, I'd say look it up.
After an ancient truce existing between humankind and the invisible realm of the fantastic is broken, hell on Earth is ready to erupt. A ruthless leader who treads the world above and the one below defies his bloodline and awakens an unstoppable army of creatures. Now, it's up to the planet's toughest, roughest superhero to battle the merciless dictator and his marauders. He may be red. He may be horned. He may be misunderstood. But when you need the job done right, it's time to call in Hellboy (Ron Perlman).
Along with his expanding team in the Bureau for Paranormal Research and Development--pyrokinetic girlfriend Liz (Selma Blair), aquatic empath Abe (Doug Jones) and protoplasmic mystic Johann--the BPRD will travel between the surface strata and the unseen magical one, where creatures of fantasy become corporeal. And Hellboy, a creature of two worlds who's accepted by neither, must choose between the life he knows and an unknown destiny that beckons him.
Hellboy II: The Golden Army, written and directed by Guillermo del Toro (Blade II, Hellboy, Pan's Labyrinth), arrives in theaters next summer on July 11th, 2008. Mark down that day in your calendars now!
