resident evil retribution

It seems like Resident Evil 6 is on like Donkey Kong (so to speak) after some initial suspicion that director Paul W.S. Anderson may be too busy with his passion project Pompeii to make Screen Gems’ already set release date of September 12, 2014. However, an interview with Anderson in The Toronto Star seems to renege that previous assumption as the director himself confirms that the film will move forward this fall.

Believable? Possibly. The last couple of Resident Evil movies have been shot in Toronto, which is coincidentally where Pompeii is shooting right now. As to why a story about a volcano eruption in Italy thousands of years ago is shooting in Canada, I don’t know, but that’s the way it goes I guess. As for Resident Evil 6, look for it to pick off where Resident Evil: Retribution left off with Alice (Milla Jovovich) and friends teaming up with Umbrella to save the last dregs of humanity.

As for the franchise he started, Anderson explained why he wanted to do zombies in the first place.

As a teenager I used to love zombie flicks. They were very, very popular with directors like (George A.) Romero and (Lucio) Fulci. That’s one of the reasons I created the first Resident Evil; I looked at the genre and thought, wow, I used to love this stuff and nobody had made a zombie film for over a decade, so I decided to make one. It ended up being the first in a whole slew of undead films.

I think the undead genre really plays to primal human fears. That kind of stuff never goes out of fashion. The themes of a zombie story are always good; they make for good filmmaking.

So are you Bastards out there looking forward to the next Resident Evil flick? Can’t say that I am, but this thing keeps making money, so why not?

The first Resident Evil film was, early on, what looked to be the beginning of a successful film franchise filled with gore and action. You even a got a few shots of Milla Jovovich‘s naughty bits for good measure. After that though, things went down hill.

It no longer has any real connection to the original subject matter, the characters you actually want to see have become mere co-stars and Paul W.S. Anderson gets to nail his lead actress. It has finally peaked. But, after all the girl-on-monster fighting, we finally get what we’ve all been waiting for in this newest clip from Resident Evil: Retribution – girl-on-girl fighting action.

Except it comes with that filler and signature “go big, but add more quick cuts and slow-mo” filming you’ve come to expect from Anderson. And never mind that you can’t hear the audio. It was too embarrassed to be involved in this rough cut you’re about to watch.

Honestly, is anyone – Paul in particular – even trying anymore or is Screen Gems just prepping us for Resident Evil: Shut up and give us your money?

Resident Evil: Retribution, starring Milla Jovovic‘s ass, is the 5th and final movie in the Resident Evil franchise. And thank god for that. If  Paul W.S. Anderson made another one of these gawd awful movies, I’d, well, I dunno what I’d do. All I know is I would be very mad about it.

It’s rant time…

The popularity of these films is beyond me. I mean come on, they don’t even honor the video game series from which they’re  based. Anderson took the names of characters and a few recognizable monstrosities and did whatever the hell he wanted. It’s like “oh, lets make Alice a super hero and make hundreds of leather-clad clones of her. And, lets shoot a whole bunch of slow-mo scenes in the rain. Yeah, fans will love that!”  Also,  IMO, Anderson didn’t even make movie. Every flick in the franchise, so far, has been nothing but a hyper stylized music video, with dazzling fight scenes timed with some butt-rock anthem. I’m not asking for a Oscar-worthy screen play or anything, but give me a decent story with characters and motivations I actually care about.  Amirite?

OK, enough of my gibber-jabber.  For those that care, Screen Gems has released two new TV spots for Resident Evil: Retribution.

The movie stars Milla Jovovich, Michelle Rodriguez, Sienna Guillory, Kevin Durand, Shawn Roberts, Colin Salmon, Johann Urb, Boris Kodjoe and Li Bingbing.

Synopsis:

The Umbrella Corporation’s deadly T-virus continues to ravage the Earth, transforming the global population into legions of the flesh eating Undead. The human race’s last and only hope, ALICE (Milla Jovovich), awakens in the heart of Umbrella’s most clandestine operations facility and unveils more of her mysterious past as she delves further into the complex. Without a safe haven, Alice continues to hunt those responsible for the outbreak; a chase that takes her from Tokyo to New York, Washington, D.C. and Moscow, culminating in a mind-blowing revelation that will force her to rethink everything that she once thought to be true. Aided by newfound allies and familiar friends, Alice must fight to survive long enough to escape a hostile world on the brink of oblivion. The countdown has begun.

RER will hit theaters September 14th, 2012

 

Seven new production stills for the upcoming Resident Evil: Retribution movie hit the Internet the other day. There’s some great looks at Alice’s fighting costume, love the leather look, but not to thrilled about all the “cut out” sections that will most likely just get conveniently ripped up during the fighting. It’s great to see some of the other Resident Evil characters making appearances as well.

The movie hits theaters September 14th and although there will be plenty of fan boy lamenting in every forum and comments section, butts will fill seats and the movie, like all it’s predecessors, will make tons of money.

In the fifth installment of the action/horror franchise, the Umbrella Corporation’s deadly T-virus continues to ravage the Earth, transforming the global population into legions of the flesh eating Undead. The human race’s last and only hope, Alice (Milla Jovovich), awakens in the heart of Umbrella’s most clandestine operations facility and unveils more of her mysterious past as she delves further into the complex. Without a safe haven, Alice continues to hunt those responsible for the outbreak; a chase that takes her from Tokyo to New York, Washington, D.C. and Moscow, culminating in a mind-blowing revelation that will force her to rethink everything that she once thought to be true.

Resident Evil: Retribution, staring Milla Jovovich’s ass, is the 5th film in the RE film franchise. Oi! 5 horrible, light your genitals on fire, bad films.I really don’t get why this franchise has succeeded beyond two films. The last flickResident Evil Afterlife, was by far the worst. All style and no substance. Awful dialogue, and embarrassingly simplistic storytelling. Retards shot out of a canon with paint brushes in hand could paint a better picture than director Paul W.S. Anderson. Suffice to say, these movies blow and are nothing like the games they are based on.

Regardless, Resident Evil: Retribution is on it’s way. Sony’s Screen Gems has released the official synopsis for film. Enjoy.

The wildly successful film franchise adaptation that has grossed nearly $700 million worldwide to the popular video game series, “Resident Evil,” returns in its highly anticipated fifth installment, “Resident Evil: Retribution” in state-of-the art 3D.

Milla Jovovich (HAWT fake nerd actress) is currently in the middle of filming Resident Evil: Retribution alongside husband/director Paul W. S. Anderson.

Being the loving wife that she is, Milla has found a great way in generating buzz in RE5, by uploading exclusive behind-the-scenes shots between filming to twitter (@MillaJovovich). Her most recent post went as such:

 Milla linked a shot of actress Li Bingbing in the makeup department getting prepped as a certain “bitch in a red dress”.

Li is going to be Resident Evil alum Ada Wong and she matches Ada perfectly, even if it’s only because of the hair right now. Milla went on to tweet: “Lol! And that’s all I’m gonna give you or I’m in deep sh*t!!!” Come on Milla, one more won’t kill you because… nobody cares! The last two movies stunk. Real bad. I don’t believe that anyone would actually pay money to see another.
