From the combined creative genius of Guillermo del Toro and award-winning comic book writer and illustrator Mike Mignola comes Hellboy Animated : Sword Of Storms, released on DVD by Anchor Bay UK on 5th March 2007

From the combined creative genius of Guillermo del Toro (Pan's Labyrinth; Blade II; The Devil's Backbone) and award-winning comic book writer and illustrator Mike Mignola (Daredevil; Batman; Wolverine) comes Hellboy Animated : Sword Of Storms, be released on DVD by Anchor Bay UK on 5th March 2007, the official feature-length animated sequel to del Toro's enormously popular and hugely successful live-action movie, "Hellboy".

Debuting on DVD on 5th March 2007, the highly anticipated Hellboy Animated : Sword Of Storms features the key creative talents from the original movie production, including actors Ron Perlman (Star Trek: Nemesis; Blade II), Selma Blair (Pretty Persuasion; Cruel Intentions) and Doug Jones (Pan's Labyrinth), and comes complete with a host of behind-the-scenes and "making of" featurettes and an exclusive limited edition 32-page "Hellboy" comic book by Mike Mignola packaged in a deluxe limited edition slipcase.

When a university professor becomes possessed by the ancient twin demons of Thunder and Lightning after opening a forbidden scroll, the Bureau of Paranormal Research and Defence team of Hellboy, researcher Kate Corrigan and psychic Russell Thorne is sent to Japan to investigate the incident. There, Hellboy discovers the Sword of Storms, a cursed samurai artifact that transports him to an alternative supernatural dimension inhabited by evil spirits and grotesque monsters. He learns that the sword is the only weapon capable of defeating the demons, but it is also the key that will enable them return them to earth. As Hellboy struggles to defeat the numerous creatures he encounters before finding his way back home, his BPRD cohorts, the pyrokinetic Liz Sherman and the amphibian Abe Sapien find they, too, have their hands full with a variety of monsters that have been unleashed on earth.

With both Guillermo del Toro and "Hellboy" creator Mike Mignola intimately involved in its story development and animation design, Hellboy Animated : Sword Of Storms is guaranteed to delight movie fans and comic book fans alike and is destined to be one of the must-have DVD releases of the year for sci-fi, fantasy and horror aficionados.
