Hellboy makes a wish come true…

Hellboy makes a wish come true…

The character ‘Hellboy’ started off in comics published by Dark Horse from writer/artist Mike Magnolia before finding his way into film in 2004 with a feature directed by Guillermo del Toro. The film was popular enough that the character returned to the screen in “Hellboy 2: The Golden Army” in 2008. Ron Pearlman portrayed the character on both feature films and has recently returned to all that makeup for a special appearance.

The special effects company involved with the Hellboy films (Spectral Motion) has played host to a wish through the Make-A-Wish foundation. Young Zachary’s wish was to meet Hellboy and when Ron Pearlman was informed he jumped in to reprise his role for a day and don the horns and makeup once more. Zachary’s wish was made real and the pair shared burgers, shakes and fries before Zachary then had the chance to go through the make-up process himself and transform into the comic-book hero.

Spectral Motion has recently been involved with two make-a-wish events, you can see Zachary and Ron chilling in the image below!

Leith spent most of his formative years growing up on the coastal fringes of Western Australia without a cinema in sight. There he grew up on the wonders of home rentals before relocating to Perth and gaining access to a proper cinematic experience just in time for the Star Wars Special Edition re-releases. From there Leith's love of movies expanded to volunteering on a Star Wars fan film, reviewing films, writing about film news, and attending film and pop-culture related conventions on the other side of the world. Leith's favourite films are too many to mention but all start with the Star Wars saga, Back to the Future, the Dark Knight trilogy, Indiana Jones, Lord of the Rings and all things Kevin Smith. With an insatiable appetite for all things pop-culture related Leith also has an unhealthy addiction to the world of comics and can often be found buried under a pile of unread back issues madly trying to catch up on a number of titles coming out from mostly DC and Darkhorse.
