Lionsgate will be re-releasing the two “Hellboy” animated movies, 2006’s Sword of Storms and 2007’s Blood & Iron, as a double feature on 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray April 2.
The films feature Guillermo del Toro, director of the the 2004 live-action film (and its 2008 sequel) as creative producer, and the voice cast features the actors from the films reprising their roles, including Ron Perlman as Hellboy, Selma Blair as Liz, Doug Jones as Abe Sapien and John Hurt as Professor Bruttenholm.
In Sword of Storms, The Bureau of Paranormal Research & Defense (BPRD) investigates a folklore professor who becomes unwittingly possessed by the ancient Japanese demons of Thunder and Lightning, but a cursed samurai sword sends Hellboy to a supernatural dimension of ghosts, monsters and feudal mayhem.
In Blood & Iron, Hellboy, Liz Sherman and Abe Sapien investigate the ghost-infested mansion of a publicity-hound billionaire, uncovering a plot to resurrect a beautiful yet monstrous vampire from Professor Bruttenholm’s past.
The combo pack will include Dolby Vision HDR and Dolby Atmos sound.
Bonus materials include audio commentaries on both films featuring Hellboy creator Mike Mignola and the filmmakers, and several behind-the-scenes featurettes.
The new live-action reboot of the franchise, starring David Harbour as Hellboy arrives in theaters April 12.
