The first teaser trailer for the anticipated sequel to Hellboy has made its way on to the web. Guillermo Del Toro returns to direct Hellboy 2, which features much of the same cast as the original including Ron Perlman, Selma Blair, and Doug Jones.
In the sequel, Hellboy and friends have to stop evil from conquering the world … which, if I’m not mistaken, was pretty much the plot for the first. Nonetheless, from the trailer, we see that much of Hellboy’s snarky attitude and sarcasm is ever present (which made him such a likable guy), all while he kicks the stuffings out of the bad guys. Expect much of the visual spectacle that made the original such an enjoyable ride to return— including a giant tentacled monster thing that makes its presence known in the trailer. All looks good, and judging from this initial teaser, Hellboy 2 could make competition even tougher come summer time.
You can peep the trailer after the jump. Hellboy 2 opens July 11th, 2008.
