Drew Struzan's Hellboy II: The Golden Army Poster!
When we first posted about this, it was simply the news that it would happened - it's that big and awesome. Now it's finally here in all of its beautiful glory. Artist Drew Struzan has finished drawing a gorgeous Hellboy II: The Golden Army poster and it's launching at the New York Comic Con this weekend. Thanks to CHUD we have our first look at it and damn is it bad ass. This thing gives me fantastic shivers - I can't wait for Hellboy II this summer. Check out this beauty and if you're in New York this weekend (like me) make sure to pick one 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 Defense—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 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 arrives in theaters this summer on July 11th. Mark down that day in your calendars now!

I have his movie poster for the first "Hellboy". Framed and on my wall. I hope he does a regular poster too, and not just the teaser. But it is fantastic!

Awesome. Too bad the movie seems like it's more Pan's Labyrinth for Kentucky than Hellboy II

I only saw one scene in both trailers that reminded me of "Pan's Labyrinth". Which isn't a bad thing. But it's so much more than that.

Nice! Kind of has a Indiana Jones movie poster vibe. I found the first Hellboy movie to be pretty good but way to compacted with characters and plot for one movie, but I hope II will be good 🙂

I have a problem with Big Red's pose on this one. Just looks a little off for some reason. I like the yellow tones that they threw into the whole thing and the vintaged poster look. But I can't get over his weird pose.

I really like it but feel like it needs a little extra something to it. Still would like one though 🙂
