During the making of Hellboy II: The Golden Army, Empire was given unprecedented world exclusive access to shoot video diaries throughout the film's production. We followed every step of one of 2008's biggest sequels, talking to everyone from director to stars to those behind the scenes and generally making a nuisance of ourselves while they went about the important business of making a movie to follow the 2004 hit.

We'll be bringing you all those videos over the next few months in the run up to the movie's August 22 release. Today we start with our very own Chris Hewitt sitting down with director Guillermo Del Toro to talk through returning to the world of Hellboy, as a new war against a mythical world threatens to take over the Earth. You can watch the video below. Please note, Chris' thumb was not harmed in the making of this film.


For tons more exclusive news on Hellboy II: The Golden Army pick up the new issue of Empire, on sale Friday. In our massive cover feature we go behind the scenes to meet the new monsters facing the big red one and discover why Selma Blair is considering shooting puppies for her director. Click the cover below to see what else is in the packed new issue.
