Speaking about her return in the role of Claire Redfield in the movie, she tells IGN that the whole point of the film's script is to wrap up everything that has come before:
"I know it is. We are not allowed to say one thing. I am held to secrecy, but what I can tell you is that the script is amazing. They're really wrapping up the whole series, so that just makes it a little more poignant.

After Street Fighter laid the groundwork for the fighting game, Mortal Kombat hit the scene, setting a high-water mark for realistic digitized graphics and pushing boundaries with its high levels of bloody violence, including, most notably, its Fatalities. It sparked so much controversy for its depiction of extreme violence and gore that it led to the creation of the Esrb (the video game rating system). The release of Mortal Kombat for home consoles by Acclaim Entertainment was one of the largest video game launches of all time, with a $10 million marketing campaign that dubbed the date “Mortal Monday.” No surprise, then, that a game this controversial and popular would pique the interest of money-hungry Hollywood executives looking to cash in. Mortal Kombat the movie enjoyed a 3-week run at the top of the Us box office, earning over $122 million worldwide. In addition to toys, »

After almost three years since the release of Resident Evil: Retribution, production is finally ramping up on the sixth instalment in the survival-Horror franchise. Paul W.S. Anderson and series star Milla Jovovich are currently prepping for the upcoming South African-shoot in Cape Town. However, it seems that (as expected) fans can hope to see some familiar faces before the ‘Final Chapter’ hits theatres next year.
Although some moviegoers will obviously not share my excitement and enthusiasm for Resident Evil, it’s clear that after thirteen years, five films and almost a billion dollars at the worldwide box office…the franchise certainly has its fair share of fans.
Now, it has been announced that Heroes and Legends star Ali Larter will be reprising her role as Claire Redfield! Larter previously played the character in the third and fourth entries of the series (Extinction and Afterlife), before sitting out Resident Evil: Retribution »

With production scheduled to begin next month in South Africa, Resident Evil: The Final Chapter has brought in Ali Larter to portray Claire Redfield. This final installment of the Resident Evil franchise will be Ali Larter's third time portraying Claire Redfield, following 2007's Resident Evil: Extinction and 2010's Resident Evil: Afterlife. Milla Jovovich is coming back as Alice, but no other cast members have been officially confirmed at this point.
Production on this sequel has been delayed a few times, following the 2012 release of Resident Evil: Retribution. Filming was supposed to begin on Resident Evil: The Final Chapter in the fall of 2013, but that never came to pass. Last year, Milla Jovovich announced on her Facebook page that shooting was being pushed by one year, due to the actress' pregnancy. Production is still slated to take place in Cape Town, South Africa, which is where pre-production was taking place when the delay was announced. »
Although we still don’t know whether the title Resident Evil: The Final Chapter will stick (the team might still want to leave the door open to possible future entries), some things are locked in place for the sixth film, including Milla Jovovich and writer/director Paul W.S. Anderson. Deadline brings word today that Ali Larter will be back as Claire Redfield.Larter, a veteran of the third and fourth films (and glimpsed in archive footage during the fifth), is confirmed as returning, though quite what Claire will be up to is anyone’s guess that this point. The new film picks up the story following the end of 2012’s Retribution, which ended with Jovovich’s Alice and some of the rag-tag human survivors joining the Umbrella army in defending the White House against a huge tide of the Red Queen’s zombie creatures. So there will be the usual carnage, »
As a franchise, Resident Evil is well versed in bringing back characters from earlier in the series, and now new reports have confirmed that the last episode will be pulling off that trick as well. It turns that Ali Larter is set to make a comeback in the series and reprise her role as Claire Redfield. Deadline has the scoop on this development, though the article doesn't mention exactly how the character will be fitting into the plot of the new film, which is being titled Resident Evil: The Final Chapter. Larter first started appearing in the movies with 2007's Resident Evil Extinction, and continued her run for Resident Evil: Afterlife, though she wasn't a part of 2012's Resident Evil: Retribution. Apparently director Paul W.S. Anderson believes it fitting that Larter be a part of the franchise's end, so he's written a role for Claire to play in his »

Some may not know it as he isnt credited but writer Peter Briggs was one of the very first to work on the story for Alien vs. Predator. Paul W.S. Anderson who directed the picture would eventually tackle the final screenplay. Most of those involved in the project most likely hold some small special place in their hearts for the movie. And that seems to be exactly why Briggs took some offense to remarks recently made by Sigourney Weaver who expressed a desire to have her character killed in Alien 3 after learning of plans to shoot Alien vs Predator. »
Appearing at London Comic Con last week, Sigourney Weaver spoke about her history with Fox's "Alien" franchise and seemingly suggested that Fox's early plans to make "Alien vs. Predator" back before "Alien 3" in 1993, was what caused Ridley Scott to drop out of the project and what made her decide to kill off the Ellen Ripley character.
Now Peter Briggs, who penned the original "Alien vs. Predator" spec script back in 1991 (but is uncredited on the final 2004 film) has responded to the criticism in a letter to Bloody Disgusting. Briggs penned a draft which was at Fox for over a decade until Paul W.S. Anderson came onto the movie and did his own version, and says that the third "Alien" began filming almost a year before his spec script even arrived at the studio:
"Maybe they were in a panic about 'Alien 3'... I have no idea. And so when »

Earlier this week, Sigourney Weaver dropped some truth bombs when she said that when she learned about Fox's plans to make "Alien vs. Predator," that's when two things happened: Ridley Scott dropped out of directing "Alien 3," and she decided to get killed off. However, Peter Briggs, who wrote the spec script for the project in 1991 (he was not credited on the finished film released in 2004), has responded to Weaver's criticism. In a lengthy statement to Bloody Disgusting, Briggs make it clear that his draft of "Alien vs. Predator" was his first project for 20th Century Fox, and his first professional sale. But he says it was so well received it launched his career (he's a co-writer on "Hellboy") and remained Fox's only draft of the movie until Paul W.S. Anderson came along and actually made his version over a decade later. He breaks down the timelines of how everything »

Ridley Scott.s 1979 sci-fi film Alien is one of the scariest movies ever made. However, the most recent installments of the franchise, Alien vs. Predator and Aliens vs. Predator: Requiem, didn.t exactly set the world on fire. One individual they failed to impress is series star Sigourney Weaver, who is not a fan. In fact, AvP is one of the reasons her character, Ellen Ripley, one of cinema.s greatest badasses, dies in Alien 3. Talking to Radio Times at the London Film and Comic Con, she was asked whether or not it was her decision that Ripley was killed off in Alien 3, to which she replied: Well, yes . because I heard that Fox was gonna do Alien vs. Predator. Which really depressed me because I was very proud of the movies. Though Alien vs. Predator didn.t actually materialize until 2004 (Alien 3 showed up in 1992), Paul W.S. Anderson, »
It’s a common complaint from comic book fans whenever the first images of their favourite characters from a new movie are released: “they don’t look like the comics”.
Even going back as far as Bryan Singer’s X-Men, there were those in the comic book community who bemoaned the fact Wolverine was not in the classic yellow suit, or that Cyclops wasn’t clad in blue, or Storm wasn’t in white. Daredevil’s suit looks like it’s left over from a bondage party, Thor isn’t wearing his trademark helmet, Superman is missing his red panties. The list goes on.
But what people seem to forget is that these are movie adaptations and interpretations of comic books, not literal translations. And, as such, things are going to change.
