David Harbour steps into the devil’s suit with Milla Jovovich, Ian McShane, and Daniel Dae Kim starring. Neil Marshall directs a story in which Hellboy is caught between the worlds of the supernatural and human, battles an ancient sorceress bent on revenge. Hellboy will battle Paramount’s What Men Want starring Taraji P. Henson at the box office as well as Fox’s James Gray sci-fi thriller Ad Astra on that date.
Lionsgate also dated Kin, the crime thriller from directors Jonathan and Josh Baker for Aug. 31 next year. Unlike last year when the distributors sat out of Labor Day weekend, this is the second title to be dated on summer’s final weekend after Focus Features’ The Little Stranger. Pic’s logline is couched as “crime thriller with a sci-fi twist” in which a vengeful criminal (James Franco), the feds and a gang of otherworldly soldiers, a recently released ex-con (Jack Reynor) and his teenage brother (Myles Truitt) are on the run with a weapon of mysterious origin as their only protection.
