It’s taken a couple of years, but Guillermo del Toro’s adaptation of Mike
Mignola’s comic book Hellboy is finally getting a sequel, and this time the movie really ups the ante. The opening pages of the script
feature more action than most movies this year – and that’s before the credits
...When a Manhattan auction house is attacked by a sword-wielding elf and a troll, the event serves as Hellboy’s coming out party. While battling a flesh eating mass of tooth fairies – they’re creepier than they sound! – Hellboy manages to take the fight to a crowd of reporters, where he and the BPRD are completely outed. Cue the opening credits!
Loved this part:
Being public brings new problems to the team as they deal with autograph hounds, hate mail and an appearance on Jay Leno.
