RISE FX, the award-winning German visible results studio, has launched a VFX breakdown reel highlighting their current creature work on Neil Marshall’s Hellboy reboot. The movie, based mostly on Mike Mignola’s “Hellboy” graphic novels and two earlier Hellboy movies starring Ron Perlman and written / directed by Oscar winner Guillermo del Toro, options David Harbour of Stranger Issues fame within the title position as a beleaguered and emotionally torn superhero caught between the worlds of the supernatural and human, who battles an historical sorceress bent on revenge.
Harbour’s blunt-horned Hellboy, wielding each flaming sword and Milla Jovovich’s severed head, is sort of the spectacle! I’m satisfied that someplace, there should exist volumes of storyboards, or some loopy previs, centered solely on attention-grabbing and narratively satisfying methods Hellboy could be subjected to bodily punishment – watching him take up an unbelievably relentless pounding is among the movie’s best achievements.
In describing their work, RISE shares, “Straight from hell and RISE comes Hellboy, a brand new strategy to the epic adventures of Pink. For this journey, the workforce round VFX supervisor and inventive director Markus Degen added St. Pauls Cathedral to partial set builds, designed daemons and alternate realities, lit King Arthur’s crypt on hearth, gave Hellboy his hearth crown and sword, opened the gates of hell and helped set an finish to the reign of the Blood Queen.”
