While most mainstream cinephiles worship at the altar of that other, similarly-named filmmaker, vulgar auteurists are generally more apt to find meaning and substance in the work of Paul W.S. Anderson. For the uninitiated, Anderson is a mainstream genre filmmaker best known for the Resident Evil series, of which he has directed three entries. He made his debut in 1994 with the controversial Shopping; his last film was 2014’s Pompeii. Occasional Sos contributor and up-and-coming film scholar Molly Faust has put together a 15-minute video essay that examines Anderson’s visual motifs and submerged themes, using clips from across his entire career to piece together a convincing throughline. Check it out below:

Vulgar auteurism enjoyed its moment of notoriety, launched briefly into the critical consciousness, and now it has receded from view as a bit of silly marginalia. But I wanted to bring it up here because I think it offers a useful illustration of the problems we face when talking about a director like Paul W.S. Anderson(Shopping, Mortal Kombat, etc.)—a director who for one reason or another found himself at the very center of the V.A. discussion. »

Anderson – and she just showed off the final pic of her big belly. Jovovich shared a photo on her Instagram page today of her baby bump during a hike at Runyon Canyon on Tuesday.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Vogt-Roberts will be taking the helm for the adaptation of the 1957 sci-fi novel by Alfred Bester, which was picked up by Paramount last month.
The story follows Gulliver Foyle, a man who is stuck in space after his ship is attacked and everyone else killed.
When a passing starship ignores his distress beacon, it sets him on a journey to get revenge.
Hollywood has been looking to adapt the book for around 20 years, attracting Richard Gere and directors such as Betty Thomas and Paul W.S. Anderson, but no one has got the story past the script stage so far.
After coming-of-age drama The Kings of Summer put him on the map, director Jordan Vogt-Roberts was quickly catapulted into the big leagues, being tasked by Legendary with helming its big-budget King Kong prequel Skull Island. Now, it’s been revealed that the filmmaker is lining up another studio tentpole: The Stars My Destination, an adaptation of Alfred Bester’s classic sci-fi story, which just landed at Paramount.
The story, first published in serialized form then as a novel in 1957, centers on a man who is marooned in space when his vessel is attacked and everyone else on board is savagely murdered. When a rescue ship passes by, he sends up a distress beacon, believing his salvation to be at hand, only to watch his beacon be ignored and the ship cruise on. The man sets out on a Count of Monte Cristo-esque quest for vengeance, bent on catching up »

Video game based movies have yet to be good, but some are less bad than others. Here is our list of the best movies based on video games so far.
In relation to books or plays, video games are a relatively new media from which to adapt a movie. As a result, filmmakers have yet to really understand what it takes to make a good video game based film. Unlike a book or play, there’s usually a limited character-based story from which a plot can be derived. Furthermore, as an adaptation of a video game, the film should at least attempt to recreate the feel and tone of the game. This typically means more action and emphasis on visuals than on characters or story. There’s only so much screen time in a feature length film, and finding that ideal balance between story and excitement is difficult to accomplish. »

Luke Evans is exhausted. "Just talking about it brings back those cold days...when I was fighting 70 stunt guys with a broomstick as a sword," said the actor of "Dracula Untold," his first studio feature as a leading man. Though we were on the phone to discuss that film's upcoming Blu-ray release, there's certainly a lot more for Evans be tired about - since taking on his first major role in the 2010 fantasy actioner "Clash of the Titans," he's starred in a string of high-profile Hollywood films, from Paul W.S. Anderson's "Three Musketeers" to "Immortals" to "Fast and Furious 6" to the last two installments of Peter Jackson's epic "Hobbit" trilogy. So how did it feel to finally have his name above the title? "I was ready for it," said Evans, calling from the set of his latest film. "I've been working super hard for the last eight years to get this opportunity, »

Those who love the fusion of science fiction and horror are going to be happy to learn that Resident Evil The Final Chapter is finally moving forward. Production on the film had been called to a halt after franchise staple Milla Jovovich announced her second pregnancy with hubby and Resident Evil mastermind Paul W.S. Anderson. Well were finally moving beyond all that baby business and getting back into the world of zombies monsters and scientific insanity that feels impossible to truly figure out (thats not to say that a good portion of this franchise is anything less than a blast). »
The Resident Evil franchise has certainly received it fair share of negativity from a critical perspective, however casual moviegoers seem to have quite a fascination with Paul W.S. Anderson’s weird and wonderful post-apocalyptic world. Despite the fact that Milla Jovovich and her leather-clad exploits have failed to make a positive impact with critics, the series has made almost a billion dollars at the worldwide box office with only five films.
This is an extremely large commercial intake considering that Screen Gems have hardly dedicated the largest budget to their game-based horror franchise. I for one, have always been a huge fan and supporter of the films, as I strongly believe that they represent a thoroughly entertaining brand of B-Movie cinema, that is predominantly forgotten in todays market. Now, five months after announcing a delayed release date for the sixth film (thanks to her unexpected pregnancy), Jovovich has now confirmed »

You can’t keep a successful franchise down, not even with a newborn baby. Last year, Milla Jovovich and her husband director Paul W.S. Anderson announced they were expecting a second child together, which delayed the filming of the final film in the Resident Evil franchise, The Final Chapter. But word from Jovovich on her Facebook page suggests she is almost ready to return.
Says Jovovich, “I’m really proud of myself for not gaining the same amount of weight that I did with our first child (75 lbs.) because I have to be ready to start filming Resident Evil- The Final Chapter in August of this year and I will also be nursing an infant simultaneously.”
Shooting was set to roll in Cape Town, South Africa for what is set to be the last part in the long-running Resident Evil franchise, after the last one part, Retribution, was released in 2012.

"Resident Evil" star Milla Jovovich revealed last summer that the upcoming sixth and final film in that series, "Resident Evil: The Final Chapter," would delay production due to her falling pregnant with her second child with husband/director Paul W.S. Anderson.
This week, the actress has done a post on Facebook indicating that the film's new schedule is in place and shooting will begin this August:
"I'm really proud of myself for not gaining the same amount of weight that I did with our first child (75 lbs.) because I have to be ready to start filming Resident Evil: The Final Chapter in August of this year and I will also be nursing an infant simultaneously (get ready wardrobe department for Alice's new 'easy mama access' costume;)) so I don't want to be on any extreme diets to get ready to go back to 'action hero' mode!"
