If Ron Perlman wasn't alive and had been Hellboy before, I might think this looked OK.

It does not seem to hold a candle to the original.

Yeah, I'm in the same boat and will give it a pass. Huge Ron Perlman fan and dabbled in the Hellboy comics, but his acting and Guillermo del Toro's directing elevated it so much. This reboot doesn't look terrible even though I feel dirty watching the trailer. Especially knowing how badly they fought to get Hellboy 3 funded only to be ignored.

I really enjoyed Hellboy 1 but I really didn’t care for 2 at all. I’m not really surprised that 3 didn’t get the green light. Still, in comparison to those two, this trailer doesn’t quite look right.

Del Toro or bust.... because once Del Toro directs, no franchise is ever the same. True for Pacific Rim, and for this.

It looks so.... British, in the bad British way.

Hrmm, I'll probably still watch it but the DelToro movies had magic. I felt like I was watching a fairy tale.

This looks like Judd Apatow directed a superhero movie.

I was thinking the same thing. Very poorly written jokes (the I.D. scene, really? we're still doing that?) that are very poorly enacted.

It's a strange thing to reboot since it's not like it's an IP that people like...talk about, or want. It's like the fifteen versions of Judge Dredd, who the hell is in charge of this stuff? Where's Concrete? Where's Lobo?

As above... The British was strong with this one. Brings it down to earth (and not in a good way). I'm from Wales etc.

This film, as also said above, has very large shoes to fill. I truly hope that it's a good film but the feeling wasn't great, from the trailer, but it must be given a chance.

I'm holding out hope that this is just a bad trailer for what will end up being a decent movie. Mike Mignola is much more involved this time around, so I'm not worried about the tone of the film itself.

I think this trailer is an example of studios one again learning the wrong lessons from Guardians of the Galaxy.

I can't over how looking at Hellboy's face reminds me of a sphincter.

I'll be honest, it doesn't look terrible, but it does look like the same bland 100% CGI movie we have just been seeing over and over.

Eh... Does it look like the Hellboy actor is struggling with the mouth prosthetics? Like he can't talk quite right?

We need Ron Perlman back. I'm sorry...but this isn't working for me.

It does look like they did too much to his face to make him look more like Ron Pearlman.

It looks a lot like another forgettable paint-by-numbers CGI action adventure.

Creativity is so rare nowadays. So many films are just lifeless.

I agree with everything said above except the notion of the second movie being inferior to the first. I loved the introduction of the characters in the first film, but didn't care for the overarching story. I barely remember the generic tentacled world-eating monster at the end - it was purple, right? The Golden Army had a great, somewhat tragic villain, way better fights and - of course - better SFX. Wait. Was Hellboy II the one with the drawn-out love and jealousy bit? I didn't like that much, but otherwise really enjoyed both movies.

This new one looks like a teenage prequel to me, kinda like "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" felt compared to "Spider-Man 2". Not really bad, but obviously not directed at me.
