2nd Hellboy Animated Feature Arrives on DVD

Starz Home Ent. has released the latest HELLBOY animated feature, HELLBOY ANIMATED: BLOOD & IRON. This DVD sells for $19.98.

In this new adventure, Hellboy must choose between the destiny he accepted - the protection of mankind - and the destiny for which he was created - the destruction of mankind. In 1939, the young Professor Broom destroyed the vampire Erzsebet Ondrusko. Now, decades later, it seems that someone is trying to bring her back and Professor Broom (Hurt) wants to investigate this worrisome development himself.

The agents from the Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense - Hellboy, Liz Sherman and Abe Sapien - go with him, far more worried about defending their top researcher than with anything paranormal. But their view is soon revised when they find themselves battling werewolves, ghosts, harpies... even Erzsebet herself.

This latest feature from Mike Mignola and Oscar-nominated Guillermo del Toro reunites Hellboy's dramatic alumni: Ron Perlman, Selma Blair, John Hurt and Doug Jones. Tad Stones (BUZZ LIGHTYEAR OF STAR COMMAND), Mike Mignola (creator of Hellboy) also produced.

The DVD features: * Widescreen Presentation (1.78:1) Enhanced for 16x9 TVs * "Reversal of Fortune" Professor Broom's Story * Blood & Iron's Alternate 'Crappy' ending * "The Iron Shoes" The Animated Debut * "Pennangalan" An E-Comic Exclusive from Mike Mignola * Audio Commentary featuring Mignola, Stones and Vic Cook * Exclusive 32-page HELLBOY ANIMATED: BLOOD & IRON comicbook
