Hellboy comes to England, where he must defeat Nimue, Merlin’s consort and the Blood Queen. But their battle will bring about the end of the world, a fate he desperately tries to turn away. Hellboy was released on April 12, 2019, to negative reviews, with criticism aimed at the story, inconsistent tone, excessive gore, and unfavorable comparisons to the Del Toro films, but praise for the make-up effects and Harbour’s performance. The film was a box-office bomb, grossing $40.8 million worldwide against a $50 million budget.
Directed by Neil Marshall, the film stars David Harbour in the title role, alongside Milla Jovovich, Ian McShane, Sasha Lane, Daniel Dae Kim, and Thomas Haden Church. It is a reboot of the Hellboy film series, and the third live-action film in the franchise. The film draws inspiration from the comic books Darkness Calls, The Wild Hunt, The Storm and the Fury, and Hellboy in Mexico.
