'Resident Evil 6' Photo Shows Off Milla Jovovich's Wounds

13 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

After being delayed due to Milla Jovovich's pregnancy, Resident Evil: The Final Chapter is finally ready to roll, with production beginning later this week. To tease her return as Alice, the actress has posted two new photos on Instagram. The first shows off Alice's chest wounds, which aren't as bad as expected. Just some minor bruising and scratches. The second photo is a costume tag, which confirms what we've suspected all along. That Alice really is the hero of this franchise.

It isn't known exactly what day shooting will begin on Resident Evil: The Final Chapter, but Milla Jovovich will let us know as soon as the first slate is cracked. Production prep on the 6th installment of the long-standing series began several weeks ago in South Africa, with the actress and her husband, director Paul W.S. Anderson both on location. Milla Jovovich has appeared in every single live-action Resident Evil movie, »

Resident Evil: The Final Chapter Will Be The Last Sequel, According To Ali Larter

17 August 2015 2:19 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

As the last chapter in Paul Ws Anderson’s zombie action series edges closer to production, one of the sequel’s returning stars has opened up on the future of the franchise. Bearing the title Resident Evil: The Final Chapter, it certainly exerts a finality to proceedings, which hasn’t stopped the juggernaut series continuing after earlier sequels brandishing the equally dubious subtitles Afterlife, Extinction and Apocalypse. However, according to Ali Larter – who reprises her role as Claire Redfield – this actually is the last sequel.

“I know it is,” Larter told IGN when asked about The Final Chapter living up to its name. “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. To be able to come »

12 Cheesy Action Films More Fun Than Terminator Genisys

11 August 2015 11:51 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Paramount Pictures

A load of tosh slapped together to exploit the masses before the rights revert to James Cameron, Terminator Genisys is less a movie than a checklist. Like Resident Evil: Retribution, it amounts to little more than a Greatest Hits package, the difference being that Paul Ws Anderson’s movie was at least coherent.

Scenes are copied directly from the original, there’s a T-1000 disguised as a cop and even Miles Dyson makes an appearance. Emilia Clarke says, “Come with me if you want to live”,  Jason Clarke repeats the “It can’t be reasoned with” speech and did you think they’d pass up a chance to recycle “I’ll be back” for the umpteenth time?

Weirdest of all (discuss) is how Sarah Connor and Kyle Reese have in this timeline become wisecracking parodies of their former selves, joking with each other that if they never get it on, »

She will star alongside Theo James, who is reprising his role David from 2012's Underworld Awakening. Anna Foerster, who served as second unit director on Roland Emmerich's The Day After Tomorrow and 2012, will make her feature directorial debut, working from a script by Cory Goodman.

Ali Larter Returning For ‘Resident Evil: The Final Chapter’

5 August 2015 8:10 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

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 »

'Resident Evil 6': Ali Larter Returns as Claire Redfield

3 August 2015 6:38 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

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. »

The Last Resident Evil Will Bring Back A Major Character

3 August 2015 4:51 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

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 »

15 July 2015 3:10 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

After a long delay, it looks like the eagerly-awaited Resident Evil: The Final Chapter is finally ready to get off the ground. Franchise star Milla Jovovich confirms that production prep on the 6th installment of the long-standing series will begin this week in South Africa. She doesn't give an exact start date for shooting to take place, but expect it to be soon. The actress, who has appeared in every single Resident Evil movie, will reprise her role as Alice. And she has shared an instagram photo of her first face cast as effects work gets underway.

It was last August that Milla Jovovich and her husband and director Paul W.S. Anderson announced that Resident Evil: The Final Chapter was getting delayed.

'Suicide Squad': Scott Eastwood & Ray Olubowale Join Cast in Unknown Roles

30 March 2015 12:00 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

With production scheduled to start up next month in Toronto on Suicide Squad, eTalk CTV and The Toronto Sun are reporting that actors Scott Eastwood and Ray Olubowale have joined the cast. No details were given in regards to what characters they may be playing, but there are rumors that Ray Olubowale is playing King Shark, but that has not been confirmed. Hopefully we'll get confirmation about who they are playing as we get closer to production starting up.

The actors join a growing cast that includes Will Smith (Deadshot), Margot Robbie (Harley Quinn), Jared Leto (The Joker), Jai Courtney (Boomerang), Joel Kinnaman (Rick Flagg), Cara Delevingne (Enchantress) and Viola Davis (Amanda Waller). No story details have been confirmed at this time, but hopefully we'll get an official synopsis when production begins on director David Ayer's comic book adaptation.

Watch: Nicolas Cage Is The White Ghost In New Trailer For 'Outcast' With Hayden Christensen

4 February 2015 6:25 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

So, Nicolas Cage and Hayden Christensen have made a movie set in Ancient China, and it's the feature directorial debut of Nick Powell ("Resident Evil: Retribution," "The Three Musketeers"). It's probably not a shock that the final result is a bit campy. You could take my word for it or just watch the new trailer below. The story follows a princess and her brother who are forced to flee after the Emperor is murdered. But they find help from Arken, a knight seeking redemption after the brutality of the Crusades, and Gallain, a bandit on the silk road, with the duo teaming up to take on the bad guys who grabbed the throne. A few things to note: the accents used by Cage and Christensen are hilarious, "I am the white ghost!" deserves to enter the pantheon of great Cage-isms, and this movie looks pretty awful all around. No word yet on a release date, »

'Resident Evil 6' Begins Shooting in August

21 January 2015 9:53 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

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! »

The ‘Resident Evil’ franchise dispels the myths about video game adaptations

1 January 2015 3:00 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Milla Jovovich with her sidekicks Milla and Milla

Whenever an artistic medium dares to cheat on its loyal fanbase by scurrying over to another, anger and thinkpieces likely follow. Technology has amped up an uncanny-valley-sort of realism in video games. Movies have added more CGI to its blockbuster spectacles and animation. Thus, the previously distinct media have drawn blurrier lines with consumers none too pleased. Games like Quantic Dreams’ Heavy Rain earn the title of “cinematic”, either as mere descriptor or complaint. A quick gameplay video affirms this: most of the action simply propels the player through a grounded narrative with only a few promptly-timed button mashes driving what looks like an animated movie. Cinema-goers as well have lambasted recent multi-million-dollar projects like Gravity for sequences of first-person, graphics-laden action, not unlike a Call of Duty cut-scene (the latest of which, by the way, features CGI-fied Hollywood actor Kevin Spacey »
