HELLBOY Has Finished Its Box Office Run And It Looks Like The Franchise Will Now Rest In Peace

Stranger Things star David Harbour is about to make the leap to the MCU in Black Widow but his time as part of the Hellboy franchise is clearly at an end based on these final box office figures...

When it was revealed that David Harbour had been cast as Hellboy, the response from fans was extremely positive. After all, he developed a pretty sizeable fanbase thanks to Stranger Things and the first official image of him made up as the character pointed to him doing the anti-hero justice. 

Unfortunately, when the trailer leaked online, it became clear that Lionsgate was going for a Deadpool-inspired romp which focused more on goofy humour than what fans loved from the comics. Then, reports started swirling about trouble behind the scenes as director Neil Marshall clashed repeatedly with producers about a number of ridiculous sounding issues. 

As a result, it probably won't surprise you to learn that after just over a month in theaters, the Hellboy reboot has ended its theatrical run in North America with a dismal $21.9 million. 

Overseas, the movie has made only $18 million which means it's earned a total of just $40 million. Considering the fact it had a budget of $50 million, Lionsgate has taken a pretty significant loss and it's hard to imagine the franchise living on after this disappointing result.

Guillermo del Toro spent years attempting to get a third Hellboy movie off the ground and that never happened so it's difficult to believe that anyone will want to touch the Dark Horse Comics property again unless it's in the form of a TV show or something totally different to this movie.
