In celebration of the imminent cinematic release of Hellboy on April 11, fans at Supanova Comic Con & Gaming Melbourne (6-7 April) will have a chance to take part in a devilish challenge of truly demonic proportions.
If you like your chicken buffalo wings hotter than Beelzebub’s own personal hot tub, and think you have a cast-iron stomach capable of taking on a tantalising pile of hellish hot wings, then have we got a treat in store for you.
All throughout our Melbourne event, the specially named Hellboy Food Truck will not only be serving up a mouth watering menu inspired by the new film, but will also be running a series of hot wing eating competitions.
If you think you’ve got what it takes to grab a fistful of spicy wings with your Right Hand of Doom and shovel them down quicker than it takes Hellboy to reload his Samaritan gun, then be sure to make your way over the Hellboy Food Truck and register your name for the next available contest being run over the course of the event.
Be sure to drop by the food truck and check out all the other devilishly delectable treats on offer, including the Hellfire Seared “Texas” Cheese Steak, Necromancer Nachos, Demon Cheese fries, Queen Nimue Quesadilla, Big Red Chili Dog and more.
Once you’ve spent your weekend at Supanova Melbourne, and gorged yourself on all the Hellboy Food Truck’s demonic delights, be sure to book your tickets to go see Big Red in action the very next week. Starring Stranger Things’ David Harbour as Hellboy, American Gods and Deadwood’s Ian McShane as Professor Bruttenholm, and Resident Evil’s Milla Jovovich as Nimue the Blood Queen, this latest Hellboy outing from director Neil Marshall (The Descent, Constantine, Game of Thrones) sees the titular hero take on an undead sorceress hell-bent on destroying the world.
Inspired by the Darkhorse comics Hellboy: Darkness Calls, Hellboy: The Wild Hunt, and Hellboy: The Storm and the Fury from Mike Mignola, this new film marks the third big-screen adaptation of Mignola’s demonic superhero, and the first film to strive for an R rating. Working from a script which Mignola helped to pen himself, this latest reworking of the fan favourite character is sure to thrill both new and existing fans alike as Hellboy tries to teach the evil Nimue that if you mess with the Devil, you get the horns.
Hellboy opens in Australian cinemas on April 11, and you can find information via the Roadshow Films website.
