Movie Media: Hellboy II: The Golden Army - Trailer

A few years back director Guillermo Del Toro brought Mike Mignola's graphic novel creation to vivid life on the big screen. The film was an absolute blast. Now, Del Toro returns to Mignola's playground with a sequel to that hit. I have to say that the sequel looks a heck of a lot better than the first. Del Toro is a director who seems to have had a split personality, making incredible films in his native language of Spanish, with The Devil's Backbone and the brilliant Pan's Labyrinth, as well as fun Hollywood styled fare like Mimic and the first Hellboy. With Pan's Labyrinth it appears that he may have turned a corner in his career where he blends his indie and Hollywood sensibilities together to the benefit of all. This trailer seems to have a larger vision and a better grasp on what he wants to do. I can only hope the film lives up to the trailer.
