Hellboy follows the titular character, a half-demon agent in the Bureau of Paranormal Research and Defense, who was summoned from Hell to Earth as a baby and was rescued by the Allies of World War II. In the upcoming film, he protects the world from the resurrected sorceress Nimue aka The Blood Queen aka Lady of The Lake (Milla Jovovich), who is bent on revenge against Earth and destroying all mankind.
Created by artist Mike Mignola, Hellboy was first published in 1993 by Dark Horse Comics and quickly gained attention in Hollywood when Oscar-winning Mexican filmmaker Guillermo del Toro adaptated the books into a film series — Hellboy (2004) and Hellboy II: The Golden Army (2008).
Hellboy has been directed by Neil Marshall, the filmmaker behind the cult horror film The Descent and Game of Thrones episodes 'Blackwater' and 'The Watchers on the Wall'.
The film shows that creating a multiverse doesn’t require sky-high VFX budgets, star cameos and huge sets. All one needs are a laundromat, an IRS office and the conviction to tell a story on human struggle.
RRR had already managed to get foreign audiences and critics to talk about it. The battle was half won and the film had already been noticed. Why, then, FFI didn’t choose it as the official entry is a mystery?
