They go into detail with the first film, discuss the characters, the actors, the makeup and visuals, and what went wrong with the plot of the film. They even bring up the animated films that came out in between the two films which included the original cast members. You can’t talk about guillermo without talking about Pan’s Labyrinth, so of course they do. They deep dive into the much beloved Hellboy sequel, the Golden Army, and talk about all the wonderful visuals and settings that Del Toro came up with throughout the film, the new characters introduced, the story elements that worked so well, and what was the unforeseen circumstance that caused it to fail at the box office. What were the plans for Hellboy 3 and why didn’t it ever get the greenlight. They wrap up by talking about their thoughts on what they’ve seen so far for the new movie and what they’re anticipations are for it.
