The first official trailer for Hellboy emerges from the flames!

The first trailer for HELLBOY is here, which showcases Neil Marshall and David Harbour's R-rated take on Mike Mignola's legendary comic book character. As we can see from the trailer above, Hellboy is in London, where Big Red and his not so mild-mannered ways are bound to be noticed by the city's posh locals. Upon further investigation, we also find the kitty pettin' and cigar chompin' demon going hoof-to-deformed-toe with some of Hell's most grotesque minions, from giant, club weilding trolls, to insidious man-bats, spindly nightmare creatures, and much more!

In addition to getting our first look at Harbour's Hellboy in action, we also witness the might of Sasha Lane's Alice Monaghan and Daniel Dae Kim's Major Ben Daimio, both of which look to be as resilient as Hellboy himself, as they battle the forces of evil one monstrosity at a time. AMERICAN GODS actor Ian McShane also appears in the trailer as Professor Trevor Bruttenholm, Big Red's father figure and founder of the B.P.R.D. (Bureau of Paranormal Research and Development). Last but not least, we finally get to cower in the shadow of Nimue the Blood Queen, as played by Milla Jovovich. With her legions of undead awaiting her every whim and command, Mignola's wicked witch looks to be the most dangerous adversary that the Son of the Fallen One has ever scuffled with on the big screen.

While the trailer definitely shows signs of the film's R-rated roots, it also reveals that there's a great deal of humor peppered throughout the adventure as well. I mean, did any of us ever suspect that the first trailer for HELLBOY would be set to the tune of Billy Idol's "Mony Mony?" I would have expected some AC/DC, Alice Cooper, or perhaps even a little Deicide. Anyway, regardless of the music giving the trailer an upbeat vibe, I'm positive that all manner of things dark and sinister are lurking in the corners of Marshall's hellacious reboot.

HELLBOY will rise from the Nine Circles of Hell and into theaters on April 12, 2019.
