I thought the first Hellboy movie was a bit strange. The characters looked great, the casting was good but there was not nearly enough of a dark vibe, action and horror. At points, especially where they focussed on Hellboy wanting to get into Liz's pants (Does he even have the equipment for that?) it felt like a teenage soap opera. The animated movies that were released in 2006 and 2007 renewed my faith, and the trailer has made me pretty excited for Hellboy II: The Golden Army. Especially cool is that they play Rammstein's "Mein Hertz Brennt (My Heart Burns)" towards the end. I always used to listen to Rammstein while reading Hellboy and think it's the perfect soundtrack for it.
