A little earlier than we expected, Yahoo Movies has posted the new trailer for Guillermo Del Toro's Hellboy II: The Golden Army. The visuals look even more intense than the first film's, and the two-and-a-half-minute trailer alone is packed with enough unbelievable creature designs to fill three comic book movies. If you were hoping for a better glimpse of the unspeakable monstrosity you saw at the end of the first trailer, you'll be out of luck, but you do get to see the Golden Army itself, and some more things I don't want to spoil.

The trailer suggests that Del Toro might have solved some of the problems I had with the original movie: The Golden Army seems less murky and heavier on story than its predecessor. Along with Speed Racer, it's looking like one of this summer's few truly original visions. Enjoy!
