Hellboy meets Chuck - VIDEO

by Brad Trechak, posted Jul 2nd 2008 5:20PM
Hellboy meets ChuckIn an effort to promote Hellboy II: The Golden Army, Universal Pictures is releasing a series of strange and humorous commercials. The first involved James Lipton interviewing Hellboy. Not Ron Perlman, but the character of Hellboy himself. The second has Hellboy meeting the title character from NBC's Chuck (and I love how Ron Perlman's character refers to Zachary Levi's character as "Chucky").

Hellboy is being distributed by Universal and since Universal and NBC are the same entity, I can understand how a crossover between the two is possible. I do wonder if there will be any promotion for the movie when the new season of Chuck begins. Probably not, since the film will have already left the theaters. Still, a Ron Perlman appearance as any character on the show would be kind of cool.

The patter between the two is great as they play video games. The question of "why doesn't the government let us out more often" is hilarious.

they're all funny. Gotta give them credit. Never saw anything like this for a movie or at least any that were this good.

Aaah time to dust off my Hellboy Statue and get into the mood for Hellboy II with a little light reading of the comic books.

It's great that Vincent finally got the right costume to kick some ass ^^;

Man, I don't mean to be overly critical or anything, but this is some crappy writing.

"The first involved James Lipton interviewing Hellboy. Not Ron Perlman, but the character of Hellboy himself. "

Did you really have to explain that to us?

". The second has Hellboy meeting the title character from NBC's Chuck (and I love how Ron Perlman's character refers to Zachary Levi's character as "Chucky")."

Again, more redundancy and just awkward wording. Seems like you get paid by the word to me.

The Right Hand of Doom must be a nightmare for punching combos...

HB as the final cylon? or maybe he'll turn up on one of the Law & Orders next.

There was also a commercial with Hellboy strolling through the set of American Galdiators and showing of his power with a jousting stick against a random 'contestant' in front of Wolf.
