Milla Jovovich is responsible for one of the most unforgettable big screen action heroes out there – Resident Evil‘s Alice – but she’s also no stranger to going the villainous route, and she taps into that experience for her latest film, Neil Marshall‘s Hellboy. She steps in as Nimue, The Blood Queen. Long ago, Nimue was chopped into pieces and they were all hidden away in separate locations across the earth, but the time has come for her resurrection and she returns with a vengeance. Now the only one standing between The Blood Queen and humanity’s demise is the Right Hand of Doom, David Harbour‘s Hellboy.
With Hellboy gearing up to hit theaters nationwide this weekend, Jovovich took the time to play a brief round of Collider’s “Would You Rather.” Find out if she’d rather sign on for a movie without reading the script or without knowing who she’s going to work with, if she’d rather see a Resident Evil remake or a Fifth Element remake, if she’d rather screw up every take herself or have someone else screw up her best take, and so much more. You can watch it all in the video interview at the top of this article! You can catch Jovovich in action alongside Harbour, Sasha Lane, Daniel Dae Kim and Ian McShane when Hellboy arrives in theaters on April 12th. And in case you missed it, click here for my interview with Harbour and keep an eye out for some “Would You Rather” with Kim and McShane, too.
Here is the official synopsis for Hellboy:
Hellboy is back, and he’s on fire. From the pages of Mike Mignola’s seminal work, this action packed story sees the legendary half-demon superhero (David Harbour, “Stranger Things”) called to the English countryside to battle a trio of rampaging giants. There he discovers The Blood Queen, Nimue (Milla Jovovich, Resident Evil series), a resurrected ancient sorceress thirsting to avenge a past betrayal. Suddenly caught in a clash between the supernatural and the human, Hellboy is now hell-bent on stopping Nimue without triggering the end of the world.
