I hopefully don't need to remind everyone how big of a Hellboy fan I am, and that I'm following every last update on Hellboy II. As of this morning, a few updates on the official website are well-worth mentioning. A new promotional photo meant to be used as a in-theater lobby display of Selma Blair as Liz Sherman has been revealed. In addition, a few new pretty awesome concept art photos were added to the gallery. And lastly, Hellboy creator Mike Mignola drops in with a video from the set.
You can find all of these photos, concept art, and videos at the official website - HellboyMovie.com.
First up is the promotional photo of Selma Blair as Liz Sherman and lots of blue flames. Liz is part of the B.P.R.D., which is Hellboy's good-guys monster-fighting group. She is a pyrokinetic that can light herself on fire and manipulate fire however she pleases. She is also Hellboy's love interest and was in the first Hellboy quite a bit.
There's at least one new concept art addition straight from Guillermo del Toro's scrap book in the gallery on the website. This is one of my favorites that I've got to show it as it looks like a cool underwater scene. I loved the underwater scene in the first Hellboy, and this is looks like a promising moment as well.
Finally, Mike Mignola, who created Hellboy originally back in 1994 and continues to publish more Hellboy (and other) comics, has been on set and provided his own video update. You can watch it below.
Hellboy II: The Golden Army, written and directed by Guillermo del Toro, arrives in theaters next summer on July 11th, 2008.
