Hellboy Animated: Blood & Iron in June
Starz Home Entertainment have announced the UK Region 2 DVD release of Hellboy Animated: Blood & Iron on 25th June 2007 priced at £14.99. Following the success of Hellboy Animated: Sword of Storms on DVD, creative producers Guillermo del Toro (Pan's Labyrinth; Blade II; The Devil's Backbone) and award-winning comic book writer and illustrator Mike Mignola (Daredevil; Batman; Wolverine) have reunited with Sword of Storms director Tad Stones for another brand new, feature-length Hellboy adventure, Hellboy Animated: Blood & Iron.
Featuring the key creative talents from Guillermo del Toro's live-action Hellboy movie – including actors Ron Perlman (Star Trek: Nemesis; Blade II), Selma Blair (Pretty Persuasion; Cruel Intentions), Doug Jones (Pan's Labyrinth) and John Hurt (V For Vendetta) – the film also boasts a story written by Stones and Mignola that incorporates many elements from Mignola's Hellboy comic book mini-series, Wake The Devil.
