IGN has gotten their hands on some stills from the upcoming Guillermo del Torro (Pan’s Labrynth) Hellboy sequel.? Even better than these pictures, which are sort of … okay, is the news that the teaser trailer for the film will debut on Thursday at 3 p.m.
Based on these images it doesn’t seem that the overall design of the film or characters are a radical departure from the first film, though Selma Blair as pyrokenetic Liz Sherman certainly looks to be channelling her inner Joat Jett and Sarah Connor fetish.
The gentleman on the left is a new addition to the BPRD, or the Bureau of Paranormal Research and Development, named Johann, a psychic who exists in the form of a sentient cloud and is forced to wear that self-containing suit.
For the other two pictures of our favorite kitty-loving hero from hell jump away.
Offical Plot Synopsis: After an ancient truce existing between humankind and the invisible realm of the fantastic is broken, hell on Earth is ready to erupt. A ruthless leader who treads the world above and the one below defies his bloodline and awakens an unstoppable army of creatures. Now, it’s up to the planet’s toughest, roughest superhero to battle the merciless dictator and his marauders……Hellboy (Ron Perlman). Along with his expanding team in the Bureau for Paranormal Research and Development–pyrokinetic girlfriend Liz (Selma Blair), aquatic empath Abe (Doug Jones) and protoplasmic mystic Johann–the BPRD will travel between the surface strata and the unseen magical one, where creatures of fantasy become corporeal. And Hellboy, a creature of two worlds who’s accepted by neither, must choose between the life he knows and an unknown destiny that beckons him.
