“Hellboy 2” burns up the box office

According to Entertainment Weekly, “Hellboy 2” was a hit at this weekends box office. The question is, will it be able to hold on to its audience after “The Dark Knight” is released?

As expected, Hellboy II opened strongly, with $35.9 million. That total far exceeds the $23.2 mil that director Guillermo del Toro‘s first Hellboy movie banked in its 2004 debut. It’s also the biggest premiere of del Toro’s relatively brief career (Blade II bowed with $32.5 mil in 2002). Universal in particular deserves props for having seen a franchise where many others didn’t, when it got the rights to the Dark Horse comic from Revolution and Sony, which put out Hellboy II‘s predecessor. This result almost certainly guarantees the continuation of the adventures of Ron Perlman’s big red guy.
