Mike Mignola’s Hellboy returns with the new animated movie Hellboy – Sword of Storms and M&C is giving away 10 copies of the DVD.
In this first animated feature from director Tad Stones (Buzz Lightyear of Star Command), and creative producers Mike Mignola (creator of the Hellboy comics) and Guillermo del Toro (writer/director of the Hellboy movie), a folklore professor becomes unwittingly possessed by the ancient Japanese demons of Thunder and Lightning.
When The Bureau of Paranormal Research & Defense dispatches a team of agents to investigate, a cursed samurai sword sends Hellboy (Ron Perlman) to a supernatural dimension of ghosts, monsters and feudal mayhem. Now while pyrokinetic Liz Sherman (Selma Blair) and fishboy Abe Sapien (Doug Jones) battle one very pissed-off dragon, a lost and cranky Hellboy must find his way home. Even if he can survive the perilous journey, how much crap does a guy have to put up with from the two most vengeful and ferocious spirits of Japanese legend?
The DVD, which is presented in 1.78:1 Widescreen, comes loaded with special features that are sure to please Hellboy fans. Features include:
