After a lukewarm reception to the initial Hellboy teaser, the crew at Lionsgate put their heads together and chopped up a new trailer that was released earlier tonight. Featuring a cover of "Smoke on the Water," the red band trailer just released dove head-first into the Hellboy mythos — introducing characters like the Baba Yaga and Ben Daimio's (Daniel Dae Kim) were-jaguar form.
Not just that, fans got a quick look at Hellboy's origin story at the beginning of the trailer, featuring cameos from the iconic Hellboy villain Rasputin and his cronies Klaus Verner von Krupt and Karl Kroenen.
Suffice to say, fans have a much warmer reception to the marketing this time around, heading to Twitter to share their thoughts on the trailer. Keep scrolling to see what fans are saying!
Hellboy hits theaters on April 12th.

Can't Get Any Better
Now a trailer sure as HELL can’t get any better than this. It was awesome. Like the saying goes, “good things come to those you wait”. We have waited & definitely good things came our way, NO GREAT things. David Harbour you are Hellboy, the torch now belongs to you. Blaze strong.— Pam Robins (@PamRobins3) March 1, 2019
