New Hellboy II: The Golden Army Poster - Sexy Bad
Exactly six weeks from now Guillermo del Toro's latest, Hellboy II: The Golden Army, will burn up the cineplex. Not surprisingly, the marketing for the film is kicking into high gear, giving us, for instance, many a poster to 'oohh' and 'ahhh'. This international poster falls in line with the recently released series of character banners and comes after the debut of both a badass American poster and Drew Struzan's teaser poster. Empire gives us the latest, which I must say, is probably the worst of the lot. You be the judge.
The last round of character banners was great. And as Alex plainly put it, the poster before that was simply badass. But this one doesn’t do anything for me. The scene is much brighter (more gold tones) than the other ones, and having the character Liz Sherman, hugged up on Hellboy casts the movie in a different, more intimate light. Is the embrace really necessary? It’s definitely not as if Sherman is a damsel in distress. She rocks pyrokinesis after all! And what’s with the tank-top? This smacks of a romance novel. What do you think?
Hellboy II: The Golden Army is both written and directed by visionary filmmaker Guillermo del Toro of Blade II, Hellboy, and Pan's Labyrinth previously. The film is based off of Mike Mignola's comic book series that was first published by Dark Horse Comics in 1993. Hellboy II: The Golden Army arrives in theaters this summer on July 11th. Mark down that day in your calendars now! If you haven't already seen the latest trailer, make sure you make it a priority to check it out!
