Resident Evil: In praise (and defence) of Paul W.S. Anderson’s billion dollar video game movie franchise

6 February 2017 9:00 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Luke Owen looks back at the Resident Evil franchise…

Note: Comments from Paul W.S. Anderson are taken from Lights, Camera, Game Over!: How Video Game Movies Get Made, which is available for pre-order now.

Regular listeners to the Flickering Myth Podcast will know that my movie tastes aren’t the norm when it comes to being a paid ‘film critic’. I have little interest in The Godfather or Citizen Kane, but will happily talk ad nauseam about the Child’s Play series or Friday the 13th. When it comes to Spielberg I’m more Jurassic Park and Raiders of the Lost Ark than Jaws and Schindler’s List, and I loathe the works of Woody Allen and Wes Anderson. I’ve not seen any of the films nominated for Best Picture at this year’s Oscars. Not one. Come to think of it, I didn’t see any of last year’s either. »

The Highest Grossing Video Game Movies of All-Time

2 February 2017 12:32 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Luke Owen keeps track of the biggest video game movies…

To go along with our Highest Grossing Superhero Movies of All-Time list, I felt we should also keep tabs on the video game movie adaptation. Since their debut in 1993, they’ve mostly come with a bad reputation, bad reviews and often bad box office results. However, some have been genuine successes. Below are two lists collated from BoxOfficeMojo with the domestic and global takings for video game movie adaptations.

Note: We’ve not included Pixels as it’s not directly based on a game, but we’re happy to add it in if enough people complain (it would be high in both lists)…

Thn ranks the ‘Resident Evil’ series

1 February 2017 11:55 PM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

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 »

Resident Evil: The Final Chapter pushes the franchise past $1 billion

30 January 2017 10:10 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

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 screen

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

Resident Evil, the most successful videogame to film adaptation of all time, is coming to a close with Resident Evil: The Final Chapter.

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 »

Film Review: ‘Resident Evil: The Final Chapter’

26 January 2017 11:45 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Yes, the movie is called “Resident Evil: The Final Chapter,” but don’t let that get your hopes up. After all, “Resident Evil: Extinction” (2007) was hyped as “the third and final installment of the ‘Resident Evil’ trilogy,” and that was three chapters ago. In fact, the last scene of this frenzied yet tedious post-apocalyptic farrago strongly suggests that the long-running, video game-inspired franchise could very easily continue. All that’s missing is a climatic close-up of lead player Milla Jovovich dropping all pretense and winking at the audience, then laughing out loud.

Actually, that might have been a welcome sight for those of us who have been following the franchise since 2002, when the first “Resident Evil” movie introduced Jovovich as Alice, the most resilient of the commandos sent to the Hive, an underground laboratory of the mysterious Umbrella Corporation, after the experimental T-virus transformed several of the facility’s researchers »

Terminator 6 back on, with James Cameron & Deadpool director

20 January 2017 5:17 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Mike Cecchini Jan 23, 2017

James Cameron is returning to The Terminator franchise, with Deadpool director Tim Miller directing, a report suggests...

Well, this is unexpected news. Despite its early start with two of the finest action/sci-fi movies of their era, The Terminator franchise has floundered badly in recent years, after the underwhelming Terminator: Salvation and the confusing, rightly-maligned Terminator: Genisys. It was starting to look like the venerable franchise had finally run its course. Terminator: Genisys was supposed to be the start of a brand new trilogy, but a critical savaging and underwhelming box office performance appeared to dunk those franchise hopes in a vat of molten steel.

Or...maybe not.

James Cameron is said to be in "early talks" to get Deadpool director Tim Miller "to direct a reboot and conclusion" to the franchise, »

Resident Evil: The Final Chapter gets an awesome IMAX poster

19 January 2017 9:50 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Regal Cinemas has unveiled a brand new IMAX poster for next week’s Resident Evil: The Final Chapter, which sees the Red Queen, a self-aware supercomputer, projecting its holographic avatar onto Milla Jovovich’s Alice. The actress revealed last year that her oldest daughter, Ever Anderson, would play the computer’s hologram. See the one-sheet here…

The tagline reads “Every reign comes to an end,” referring to the fact that The Final Chapter will close out the long-running movie franchise. To check out previous posters for the film, click here.

Milla Jovovich expresses interest in playing Cheetara in a ThunderCats movie

9 January 2017 7:50 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Milla Jovovich is currently doing the interview rounds for Resident Evil: The Final Chapter where she was asked by We Got This Covered which superhero she would love to play.

The actress quickly directed the conversation to the stuck-in-development hell ThunderCats movie, enthusiastically expressing interest in playing Cheetara, but not before admitting she might be getting a little too old to play a superhero.

“I’ve always loved ThunderCats. I heard they were making a movie, and then they weren’t making a movie. And I’m probably getting way to old to play Katra… no, Cheetara, that’s the one!”
