Columbia TriStar Home Entertainment must be pleased with the success of the recent superhero flick Hellboy. The DVD is storming towards a summer release date.
Born in the flames of hell and brought to Earth as an infant to perpetrate evil, Hellboy was rescued from sinister forces by the benevolent Dr. Broom, who raised him to be a hero. In Dr. Broom’s secret Bureau of Paranormal Research and Defense, Hellboy creates an unlikely family consisting of the telepathic “Mer-Man” Abe Sapien and Liz Sherman, the woman he loves who can control fire. Hidden from the very society that they protect, they stand as the key line of defense against an evil madman who seeks to reclaim Hellboy to the dark side and use his powers to destroy mankind.
The film will be available in anamorphic widescreen and Dolby Digital 5.1 sound. Also included is an audio commentary, a documentary, four featurettes, deleted scenes, outtakes, still galleries, storyboards and theatrical trailers.
With a suggested retail price of $28.95, the DVD will arrive on July 27th.
