The "Hellboy" reboot, with David Harbour as the big red guy, has finally set an official release date: January 11, 2019.

That's actually the same date that Empire reported in September, but Lionsgate and Summit Entertainment denied it at the time. Original announcements pegged the movie as coming out sometime in 2018.

"Stranger Things" star Harbour is taking over the lead role from Ron Perlman and "The Descent"'sNeil Marshall is directing. Milla Jovovich and Daniel Dae Kim co-star in the reboot, titled "Hellboy: Rise Of The Blood Queen." Ian McShane ("American Gods") will play Hellboy's adoptive father, Professor Broom.

January isn't typically a great month to release a big comic-book movie. The first "Hellboy" movie opened on April 4, 2004 and its sequel "Hellboy II: The Golden Army" on July 11, 2008.
