The film is about a demonic beast turned into superhero, known as Hellboy, who secretly works to keep the world safe from paranormal threats with his team, the Bureau of Paranormal Research and Defense.

EXT. BEHIND THE ALTAR - NIGHT

The lights flood an ancient sacristy lined with eroded stone

saints. GRIGORY, tall and gaunt, stands naked, arms fully

extended.

GRIGORY:

No matter what happens to me, you

must carry on with the work.

ILSA, a severe, ageless Aryan beauty, reverentially drapes

an embroidered robe over his bony shoulders.

ILSA:

I will not leave you.

GRIGORY:

Yes, you will... Leave me. Deny me.

ILSA:

Never --

He hands her a small LEATHER-BOUND BOOK. It contains hand-

drawn notes and illustrations.

GRIGORY:

This will guide you back to me.

He pulls her close, the clouds of their breath mingling.

GRIGORY:

I grant you everlasting life, youth

and the power to serve me.

He dips his fingers in a wooden bowl full of blood, then

wipes her tears away with a crimson thumb, both a consolation

and a ritual.

VON KRUPT, an acrid German General, wearing dark SCARLET

glasses and LEATHER GLOVES, appears. Looks at his pocket

watch. On the gold lid: a SWASTIKA.

VON KRUPT:

It's time.

EXT. ABBEY RUINS - ALTAR AREA - CEREMONY - NIGHT

Grigory walks towards the machine, its colossal steel and

copper clockworks gleaming in the floodlights.

VON KRUPT:

Five years of research and

construction, Grigory. Five years!!

He strides alongside Grigory and Ilsa, who holds an umbrella

to shield her master from the pouring rain.

VON KRUPT:

The furhrer doesn't look kindly on

failure.

GRIGORY:

There will be no failure, General. I

promised Herr Hitler a miracle. I'll

deliver one.

Kroenen mutters excitedly as he opens a polished oak box

containing a massive gold and copper MECHA-GLOVE.

Grigory extends his hand so that KROENEN may fit him with

the contraption, which is attached to cables and hoses.

EXT. THE HILLTOP - ALLIED SOLDIERS - NIGHT

The Americans fan out, unseen.
