With 2019 just around the corner, the advertising for next year’s biggest movies is finally beginning. This includes the first trailer for the highly-anticipated Hellboy reboot, as well as a flashy new poster, which gives the titular character his legendary horns.
On Monday morning, IGN unveiled the IMAX poster for the film, which sees Stranger Things star David Harbour take on the titular role, replacing Ron Perlman, who starred in Guillermo del Toro’s adaptations. The poster features a fully-horned Hellboy with the flaming crown above his head, along with the tagline “Demons have demons too.”
Harbour has unveiled a Hellboy motion poster through his Instagram account, which features Hellboy in a more heroic form as he calls down lightning from his Right Hand of Doom.
