The new trailer for Hellboy is finally here and it's certainly proof of why the film has earned an R rating. There's plenty of blood and gore and we finally get to see Ben Daimio transform into a jaguar.
The trailer opens with Lady Hatton (Sophie Okonedo) telling the story of how "something was summoned from the depths of hell" and that it could "end mankind." Hellboy (David Harbour) asks if the Lady is concerned about this particular threat and she reveals that she is actually talking about him.
Trevor Bruttenholm (Ian McShane) also gives us some insight on what the Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense is currently against. They need to prevent a 5th-century sorceress (Milla Jovovich) from bringing about the end. However, it looks like it won't be as easy because she has her eye on Hellboy himself.
There's plenty of new footage from the film but one of the more exciting sequences is Ben Daimio (Daniel Dae Kim) turning into a jaguar. This is certainly something to look forward to considering that Ben could be a truly powerful ally to Hellboy.
Hellboy was recently confirmed to get an R-rating for "strong bloody violence and gore throughout, and language." The trailer certainly shows us all that and more.
The synopsis for Hellboy reads as follows:
"Based on the graphic novels by Mike Mignola, Hellboy, caught between the worlds of the supernatural and human, battles an ancient sorceress bent on revenge."
Hellboy hits theaters on April 12.
