Movie banner gives us first taste of Hellboy: Rise of the Blood Queen

April 12th, 2018 by Marc Comments

The new banner shared by Milla Jovovich from the upcoming Hellboy: Rise of the Blood Queen has us pretty excited!

Jovovich stars as the villainous Blood Queen in the movie opposite Stranger Things’ star David Harbour in the titular role (and he looks incredible!).

The usage of creator Mike Mignola’s iconic art for the banner has us really excited – it means that, at least, the movie continues the tradition started with Guillermo DelToro’s two movies starring Ron Perlman keeping the comic source as the heart of the movie.

We can’t wait to see more of this…

Hellboy: Rise of the Blood Queen will star Stranger Things’ David Harbour as the titular hero in the Lionsgate and Millennium film, which is slated to begin filming in September. Ian McShane (Deadwood, American Gods) will play Hellboy’s adoptive father, Professor Trevor Bruttenholm (aka Professor Broom), Milla Jovovich (The Fifth Element, Resident Evil franchise) has been cast as villain the Blood Queen, Sasha Lane (American Honey) will play Alice Monaghan, Penelope Mitchell (Hemlock Grove) will play the elder witch Ganeida, and Daniel Dae Kim (Hawaii Five-0, LOST) is playing Major Ben Daimio.

Neil Marshall (The Descent, Game of Thrones) will direct from a script from Andrew Cosby (Eureka), Christopher Golden and Mike Mignola. Larry Gordon and Lloyd Levin will produce with Mike Richardson of Dark Horse Entertainment.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
