Hellboy's big red guy chomps some pizza and gets a history lesson in new clip

The new Hellboy isn’t like a regular Hellboy. He’s a cool Hellboy. Behold, as he casually scarfs down some pizza like a real rad dude with an attitude in this new clip from Hellboy. The latest sneak peek at Neil Marshall’s upcoming reboot features David Harbour’s eponymous hero enjoying a snack befitting a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle as Ian McShane’s Trevor Bruttenholm gives him a quick lecture on the Osiris Club. That’s a name that readers of the comic books will recognize, but everyone else probably won’t, which is why Mr. McShane here is laying it out. Honestly, the guy could be explaining the Burger King Kids’ Club and I’d still find it compelling as hell(boy).


The most notable thing about this very short clip, however, is Harbour’s Hellboy voice, which sounds suspiciously similar to Tom Hardy’s Bane voice–something that probably only four people (myself included) will find enjoyable. While the previous trailer was a vast improvement over the first, this latest clip isn’t offering much in the way of thrilling material–unless you’ve got a thing for watching big red demons chomp pizza, in which case, you do you.

Here’s the official synopsis for Hellboy, which hits theaters on April 12:

Hellboy is back, and he’s on fire. From the pages of Mike Mignola’s seminal work, this action packed story sees the legendary half-demon superhero (David Harbour, “Stranger Things”) called to the English countryside to battle a trio of rampaging giants. There he discovers The Blood Queen, Nimue (Milla Jovovich, Resident Evil series), a resurrected ancient sorceress thirsting to avenge a past betrayal. Suddenly caught in a clash between the supernatural and the human, Hellboy is now hell-bent on stopping Nimue without triggering the end of the world.
