It's officially Hellboy Day, a holiday celebrating Big Read and his wide supporting cast of characters from the Dark Horse stable. To celebrate, the team at Lionsgate officially announced that tickets for the movie have now be made available for purchase ahead of its April 12th release.

The film has officially been rated R and judging by the red band trailer previously released, it plans to take full advantage of its rating with all kinds of blood, gore, and swearing.
