Resident Evil: Extinction is based on a screenplay by English film director, Paul W.S. Anderson, who based his story on a survival horror video game series, created by Japanese video game designer Shinji Mikami and released in 1996 as Biohazard in Japan and Resident Evil in English-speaking countries. Resident Evil: Extinction is the third in a series of five movies. It was preceded by Resident Evil (2002) and Resident Evil: Apocalypse (2004) and followed by Resident Evil: Afterlife (2010), and Resident Evil: Retribution (2012).
Yes. Resident Evil: Extinction (2007) by Keith R.A. DeCandido is a novelization of the movie. DeCandido has also written novelizations of the other two movies: Resident Evil: Genesis (2004), and Resident Evil: Apocalypse (2004). There are also a number of novelizations of the videogame series, but these are unrelated to the movies.
This is not directly explained in the third film. The supposition is that they died in the events that occurred between the second and third films, since the "convoy" lost around half its population in that time. However, in the novel adaptation (released before the movie), Jill is now leading about 100 survivors in Baltimore. As for Angie, the book explains that she was killed by Alice, while Alice was being controlled by the Umbrella Corporation in Detroit. Jill Valentine makes a very brief appearance during a mid-credit sequence at the end of Resident Evil: Afterlife. She is hard to recognize because she has long blonde hair unlike her appearance in Apocalypse. She is currently under the control of Umbrella (much like her character in the Resident Evil 5 game)
The Red Queen was modeled after Angela Ashford from the second film by her father Dr. Charles Ashford. The White Queen's appearance is not modeled after Angela Ashford, and although not confirmed we can easily assume that the White Queen was a more updated version of the Red Queen.
At the beginning of the crow sequence it was mentioned that the crows had been feeding on infected flesh, therefore they were infected. The Red Queen is heard saying in the first Resident Evil movie: "One bite, one SCRATCH is sufficient enough to pass the virus". Betty had numerous scratches from the birds and the birds pecked at her skin and flesh, so she would most likely turn into an undead herself sooner or later. Instead of endangering the rest of the convoy, she may have chosen to enclose herself within the bus. A second theory comes from the bus window beginning to break. The crows are clearly seen breaking through the glass window and swooping in the bus. It's possible she closed the door of the bus to prevent the crows from flying out to harm the rest of the convoy.
He used the anti-virus, but in excessive amounts. That is why he suffered some side effects.
It is said that the major cities have the most zombies but when the convoy arrived in Vegas the zombies were no where to be seen, Alice said "Those birds must have moved through the city block by block. Pecked it clean." The strange thing is the zombies nor other T-Virus infected creatures such as the zombie dogs or the Lickers never eat other infected creatures because the zombies or other infected creatures eat only fresh blood and flesh, which is why the zombies in the first Resident Evil didn't eat each other. However, crows are scavengers that eat both dead and living things. That would explain why the crows eat all the zombies in Vegas -- the zombies were the only food they could find since the living population had dropped after the outbreak.
Alice says, "You're just another asshole."
One draft of the screenplay had Cindy Lennox as a character. However due to problems with casting and pressured timing the character was taken out but a similar character 'Nurse Betty' played by Ashanti was added in.
