“Here’s a trailer”:http://www.sonypictures.com/movies/hellboy/ for the upcoming “Hellboy”:http://us.imdb.com/title/tt0167190/ movie. (Based on the “comic”:http://www.hellboy.com/, for those who don’t know.) Abe Sapien looks great, Ron Perlman looks perfect for Hellboy himself. And — checking IMDB — that’s John Hurt as Prof. Bruttenholm! Thought he sounded familiar. Only complaint: why oh why do they have to insert the strapping young new guy, through-whose-eyes-we-can-be-introduced-to-everything? It’s a tired device. Movie looks very groovy, though.
Hat tip to loyal reader Michael Thomas, whose links I am happy to channel until he gets off his butt and starts his own blog.
UPDATE: I changed the link to the official movie site, where you can view it in Quicktime. Much nicer. Thanks to “Evil Genius Chronicles”:http://www.evilgeniuschronicles.org/cgi-bin/blosxom.cgi.
