The question "why do people do the same things over and over again?" has captivated philosophers, anthropologists, economists and psychologists for centuries, while our favorite brands become endurable, resonating with popular characters and the allure of a new world to escape into:
Whether the genre is fantasy, sci-fi or comic book, there is now an online slot available, based on movies, in the form of a cash-winning game.
In the Resident Evil slot, a blood-curdling welcome awaits you when you first launch this from a games menu. A hair-raising theme continues to run throughout, with evil characters lurking in every corner. The movie itself is loosely based on a video game from Japanese games maker, Capcom.

'Lara Croft' also takes on many challenges while spinning the reels at an online casino. The »

For the second time this year, a Blumhouse Production tops the Top Ten, as “Get Out” (Universal) scored $30 million this weekend, which is six times its production cost. The tremendous success of “Get Out” on Oscar weekend is significant for two reasons.
Oscar weekend box office often provides an ironic counterpoint to mainstream box office. This year, though, is a little different. For one thing, three of the Best Picture nominees (“Hidden Figures,” “La La Land” and “Lion”) are in the Top Ten, while three other Best Picture nominees are in the Top 20, despite being at the end of long runs.
“Get Out” comes on a weekend when the Oscars are expected to make amends for the presumed wrongs over the last two years of the #OscarsSoWhite controversy. »

Well, it was just a matter of time before this happened, right? Given how successful John Wick: Chapter 2 is proving to be, both with critics and at the box office, everyone wants to get in on the fun and Deadline is now reporting that Amblin Partners has won an auction for Ruthless, John Swetnam’s spec script that’s said to be a female-led vehicle in the vein of Lionsgate’s newest action franchise.
San Andreas‘ Brad Peyton is currently attached to direct while Weimaraner Republic Pictures partners and The Shallows producers Matti Leshem and Lynn Harris are set to produce along with Tripp Vinson and Jeff Fierson. No one has been cast just yet, but apparently several high profile actresses are interested, and it’s not hard to see why.
We haven’t heard who may be in contention for the part, but we could definitely see someone »

Jovovich began modeling at the age of 12 when Herb Ritts photographed her for the cover of the Italian magazine "Lei". Photographer Richard Avedon then featured her in Revlon's "Most Unforgettable Women in the World" advertisements.
When she was fifteen, Jovovich starred in the 1991 feature "Return to the Blue Lagoon.
In 2002, Jovovich starred in the horror feature "Resident Evil", adapted from the video game series of the same name, reprising her role in five sequels to date, including "Resident Evil: The Final Chapter", written/directed by Paul W. »

Milla Jovovich doesn’t reach any new levels in this sixth instalment of the computer game spin-off series
It might seem ridiculous to quibble about stuff like character motivation in a film that seems to have been edited by shoving it all in a mincer and hoping for the best. But even with a chunky 10 minutes of exposition at the opening and a further “evil plotting” segment later on, it’s still far from clear why the few remaining healthy humans are more interested in killing each other than they are in dispatching the zombie hordes. Perhaps you need to be a Resident Evil completist to get the finer points of the plotting. This is the sixth film in the computer-game spin-off series starring Milla Jovovich. And at this point, the dialogue is more authentically braindead than the zombies.
Despite the number of movies in this franchise, the film still »

In UK cinemas from today, Resident Evil: The Final Chapter continues the long-running story of Alice (Milla Jovovich), the only survivor of what was meant to be humanity’s final stand against the undead. Now, she must return to where the nightmare began – The Hive in Raccoon City, where the Umbrella Corporation is gathering its forces for a final strike against the only remaining survivors of the apocalypse.
With that in mind, here’s a list of the top 5 video games featuring zombies:
Left 4 Dead (2008, PC/Mac/XBox 360)
Cooperation is the name of the game in Valve’s 2008 first person zombie epic and its concurrent 2009 sequel imaginatively titled Left For Dead 2. Your team of four survivors have to battle zombie hordes by utilising their unique strengths. Playable as single player or multiplayer cooperative, and even with eight players in a four on four survival match, Left 4 Dead is the most sociable game on our list. »

Milla Jovovich returns for yet another high-impact action thriller set in a zombified world dripping with yucky horror-violence
The violence keeps coming in this movie, but, if there’s one thing more devastatingly brutal than the law of the jungle, it’s the law of diminishing returns. The sixth film in the Resident Evil franchise might pick up some farewell-tour custom by calling itself The Final Chapter, but the ending naturally leaves things open for a seventh. Just as Kate Beckinsale climbed back into the skintight leathers for another Underworld outing, so Milla Jovovich is back in residence for yet another high-impact action thriller set in a gruesome zombified world, with Iain Glen reprising his turn as the creepy megalomaniac scientist. There’s a great deal of yucky horror-violence testing the limit of that 15 certificate. It often features Jovovich on a motorbike roaring sexily, endlessly, across a post-apocalyptic landscape where »

For a series revolving around an undead apocalypse, there’s a brilliant irony to the longevity of the Resident Evil series. Fifteen years ago, Paul W.S. Anderson brought us the original film, which then went on to spawn five sequels. Like the T-Virus, the franchise has evolved and mutated over the years, with each sequel bearing less and less resemblance to its predecessor. Thankfully, the franchise has a legion of fans that even an army of Alice clones couldn’t match.
Now, six films, three directors, and over a billion dollars down the road, we have finally arrived at the end of our journey. Resident Evil: The Final Chapter, will bring Alice back to where it all began an an epic climax to the twisted adventure we started back in 2002. Milla Jovovich returns as Alice, to face off against Wesker and the Red Queen for the last time, with some »

Since the very first Resident Evil film first graced our screens back in 2002, it’s fair to say that the zombie sub-genre has become somewhat tired in contemporary cinema, as audiences have been subject to an influx of productions, each attempting to put a new spin on a rather hackneyed concept. It’s not the fault of the Paul W.S. Anderson led franchise, but it still has an affect on their latest offering, as this title struggles to stand out from the crowd, tedious and uninspiring, suffocated by its very own lack of imagination.
Beginning soon after the events that took place in the preceding endeavour Resident Evil: Retribution, we rejoin Alice (Milla Jovovich), who seems to be the lone survivor of the viral infection which wiped out humanity. Strong willed, and kicking the crap out of the undead on a daily basis, she is presented with a message, »

Chicago – Guilty pleasures are the order of the day, especially when we are facing daily signs of a real, impending apocalypse. End of the world by zombies remains one of the most popular cataclysmic cinematic events and “Resident Evil” is proof. “Resident Evil: The Final Chapter” proves that what should be dead can come back to life, but the real question is if it actually should.
The “Resident Evil” film franchise has been around for over half my life and has proven to be the most successful (read: profitable) film series based on a video game to date. Having grown up on the video games, and having the first film come out during a probably impressionable time in my life (read: puberty), I have had this lingering fascination towards the franchise. The synergy created by combining several of my interests (video games, film, zombies, strong female protagonists, etc) has »

Love them or hate them, the Resident Evil films are the most successful video game adaptations in cinematic history. The five films released so far may have received a mixed response from critics, but they have also grossed almost a billion dollars at the worldwide box office. Now, after a 15 year journey with Alice, her merry band of disposable misfits, and more mutated zombies than you could shake a stick at, we have come to the end. So, how does Resident Evil: The Final Chapter round things off?
Well, firstly it should be made clear that if the previous instalments weren’t your cup of tea, then this film definitely wont do much to change that. »

Despite earning the best reviews of the series [although our own Rob Kojder didn’t like it] and the lowest opening weekend of the series, Paul W.S. Anderson and Sony Pictures have a lot to celebrate with Resident Evil: The Final Chapter as the franchise has crossed $1 billion worldwide.
Resident Evil: The Final Chapter earned just $13 million from its opening weekend, which wasn’t enough to unseat Split from the top spot, or trouble Hidden Figures and A Dog’s Purpose. However a strong opening overseas has pushed the film to $78 million worldwide.
The film opened to number one in Japan last December.
It should be noted, however, that while Sony are reporting the franchise has pushed $1 billion, Boxofficemojo claim the series has so far earned $994 million. Either way, it will cross $1 billion next week.

Resident Evil: from the start screen to the big screenResident Evil: from the start screen to the big screenTanner Zipchen1/30/2017 11:11:00 Am
Of course, the six Resident Evil films are “loosely” based on the video games, but how much do the two actually cross over? Some of the bigger details are the same; both are set in and around Racoon City and both the films and video games are facing the T-Virus-inflicted zombie apocalypse (which the Umbrella Corportation is responsible for). However, it’s the characters that both separate and unite the film and video game worlds. The films follow the story of Alice (Milla Jovovich) who sets out on a mission to find her identity and wipe out the T-Virus. As she journeys through »
