Two new videos from Guillermo del Toro's notebook which reveal Angel of Death's early sketch and Abe Sapien's body suit have made its way to the net.
Straight from the desk of director Guillermo del Toro comes two brand new featurettes of his upcoming superhero sequel flick "Hellboy II: The Golden Army". Each video noted as "Director's Notebook" takes different running time, the first one lasts for more than a minute while the second runs for less than a minute. Still, the two help fans to have an idea about some of the characters featured in the movie.
The first featurette let out the first look into Angel of Death, which is displayed in its original sketch. The footage showing del Toro's earlier drawings is accompanied by his explanations on the intricate character as well as on the changes that had to be done on the realization of the particular character. The next featurette focuses on Abe Sapien character. In it, del Toro discusses about how he wants to give sleeker appearance to the aquatic empath by giving him the sketched body suit. Both featurettes can be enjoyed below.
Targeting to do better than its first relatively successful movie, "The Golden Army" is described to be "a kick ass action" movie by the director/scribbler himself as it will give a multitude of fantastical creatures as well as bigger and badder weapons. In this movie, the big red action hero will have to face a rebelling Elf prince, who seeks to destroy the real world, while at the same time deal with his troubled relationship with his pyrokinetic girlfriend. Starred by Ron Perlman and Selma Blair among others, the action fantasy tidbit is set for July 11 release.
