Whatever a studio doesn't kill can only make it stronger, right? Once Sony put the Hellboy movie rights on the auction block, Universal snapped them up with the quickness and del Toro looks to be happy with his new workspace. Ron Perlman reprises his role as Hellboy, along with Selma Blair as girlfriend/partner in heroism, Liz Sherman. Together, they make up part of a paranormal investigative bureau, this time combating a renegade elf vying for Earth domination. The trailer confirms creator Mike Mignola's claim that Hellboy II eschews the 2004 original's pulp overtones for a more fantastical story. The horde of critters and baroque artifact designs give some scenes a sleek Pan's Labyrinth-esque bent.
