Interview: Guillermo Del Toro on Hellboy II: The Golden Army

This week sees the UK release of Hellboy II: The Golden Army, the sequel to the 2004 movie adaptation of the character from Dark Horse Comics, originally created by Mike Mignola.

I recently spoke with director Guillermo Del Toro about the latest film and we also discussed different aspects of his work – which has included such films as Cronos, Mimic, The Devil’s Backbone, Blade II and Pan’s Labyrinth – and his next project, the eagerly anticpated prequel The Hobbit.
