Milla Jovovich Is the Blood Queen in Hellboy Reboot
Just one week after Ian McShane signed on to play Professor Broom, the long-awaited Hellboy reboot has finally found its Blood Queen. Milla Jovovich is reportedly in final talks to play The Blood Queen in Lionsgate's new Hellboy adventure, alongside David Harbour as the title character. The production has also brought on another writer, with Aron Coliete (Heroes) taking a crack at the script that has been worked on by Andrew Crosby, Christopher Golden and Hellboy creator Mike Mingola.

Chuck Trailer: The True Story Behind Rocky Balboa
IFC has released the first trailer for its upcoming biopic Chuck, which is set to hit theaters on May 5.
