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 »

"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!"
The film was in pre-production in Cape Town, »

Back in August, Resident Evil franchise star Milla Jovovich revealed that production had been delayed on Resident Evil: The Final Chapter, because she and her husband/director Paul W.S. Anderson are expecting their second child. She said then that shooting wouldn't happen until the summer of 2015. Now, the actress confirms in a new Facebook post that shooting will begin this August. Here's what she had to say in her post from Tuesday.
"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! »
Chicago – “Blackhat” is a hacker’s auctioneer of high-tech and low-tech genre jolts, but its construction provides a thrill of its own - that of witnessing the next era of the action movie. With “Blackhat,” director Michael Mann introduces the new standards for the everlasting genre as it continues to reflect modern anxieties, giving leading roles to two entities that Hollywood has previously treated as supporting acts, hackers and the nation of China. Incredibly on-the-moment, “Blackhat” recognizes that computer whizzes are becoming the physical heroes our connected world needs, and China is the partner that Hollywood will increasingly rely on for business, especially in selling films that look like “Blackhat.”
Mann’s film is the story of a co-investigation between the United States and China. A Hong Kong nuclear power plant and Chicago’s Mercantile Trade Exchange have been attacked, nonetheless by a no-name, no-motive menace who has hacked into their systems. »

I admit it: I love cyber-punk. Mostly of a Shadowrun flavor. But like many geeks who came of age in the early millennium, I also cut my teeth on the burgeoning American fascination with anime. “Neon Genesis Evangelion,” “Akira,” "Battle Angel Alita," "Armitage III," and of course, “Ghost in the Shell.” So when rumor had it that Hollywood wanted to bring Motoko Kusanagi, the Puppet Master, and their world of New Port City to life, I was cautious. After all, this was the same town that tried to make “Akira” with Michael Fassbender and Andrew Garfield until George Takei stepped in to point out whitewashing is not okay. And we shall not talk about the "Dragonball" movie. It is stricken from the record. Turns out my caution was well founded. As of today, Scarlett Johansson is officially signed on to play the lead in the live action “Ghost in the Shell. »
