The new trailer for the reboot of Hellboy has arrived and it should give fans of the comic a lot to chew on ahead of its release in April. David Harbour from Stranger Things steps into the role Ron Perlman gave life to on the big screen in Guillermo Del Toro's original pair of films.

From the looks of it, Harbour has the character's essence down and the whole movie wants to have fun.

Milla Jovovich plays Nimue the Blood Queen in this one, the oldest and baddest witch in all of Great Britain -- taken from the Hellboy comic arc The Wild Hunt. Away from her, we also have Ian McShane as Professor Bruttenholm, Daniel Dae Kim from Lost, and a whole host of nasty looking monsters to fight along the way.

The Right Tone

The film will land in theaters this April, hopefully satisfying fans who have been waiting for a new iteration to come on the big screen.

This one seems to have the right tone and feel, with enough differences from Del Toro's work to avoid any negative comparisons.

We'll see how it goes.
