I immediately adopted a defensive tone when it came to the new Hellboy movie when it was announced because lord knows the fanboys had their claws out over Guillermo Del Toro & Co getting brushed off -- I love me some GDT and I enjoy both his Hellboy adventures but man this is Neil Marshall directing! That is not a thing to be scoffed at! Neil Marshall who gave us Dog Soldiers and The Descent, and all of the best episodes of A Game of Thrones! Anyway I was just now realizing I have this defensive tone but I haven't really seen much push-back to warrant that stance, so perhaps I should just get the chip off my shoulder and straight up say WHEE this looks fun.

Hellboy is out on April 12th -- here's the full, fully insane, trailer:
