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 Review

1 February 2017 9:04 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Stefan Pape

 

Since the very first Resident Evil film first graced our screens back in 2002, it’s fair to say that the zombie sub-genre has become somewhat tired in contemporary cinema, as audiences have been subject to an influx of productions, each attempting to put a new spin on a rather hackneyed concept. It’s not the fault of the Paul W.S. Anderson led franchise, but it still has an affect on their latest offering, as this title struggles to stand out from the crowd, tedious and uninspiring, suffocated by its very own lack of imagination.

Beginning soon after the events that took place in the preceding endeavour Resident Evil: Retribution, we rejoin Alice (Milla Jovovich), who seems to be the lone survivor of the viral infection which wiped out humanity. Strong willed, and kicking the crap out of the undead on a daily basis, she is presented with a message, »

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 »

Review: Denying Death in Paul W.S. Anderson's "Resident Evil: The Final Chapter"

30 January 2017 5:55 AM, PST | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

Although Paul W.S. Anderson titled himself into a corner by calling it Resident Evil: The Final Chapter, one would be little surprised if the now-six-film franchise refused to stay dead. Death has never been a given in this zombie series, and nearly every significant actor has shown up after their character’s death throughout the series as clones, memories, computer simulations, and much, much more. Motifs of setting also find similar ways to repeat themselves, such as wreck-laden desert wastelands, claustrophobic labyrinths, and crisp futuristic fortresses (all of which appear in Final Chapter.) Even plot points are salvaged and brought back to life, as we follow Alice (Milla Jovovich, infallible, unstoppable, our Digital Dietrich) into this film as we did the last five. She has proven remarkably adept at finding pockets of survivors to bring into “her story,” the refrain for each of the endearing expositions Alice delivers at the »

‘Resident Evil’ Doesn’t Give a Damn and I’ll Miss That (Commentary)

27 January 2017 6:09 PM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

At the end of “Resident Evil: Retribution,” the fifth movie in the franchise, all the principal characters who are still alive gather at the White House for a final, desperate stand against undead monsters. At this point, the world has been over for three whole movies, but the bad guys are still sending soldiers and military vehicles after the good guys because, I don’t know, it’s hilarious or something. Arriving at the barricaded, a military-swamped White House transitions to the series’ signature final shot. The camera pans back and back further to reveal the scope of what the heroes will. »

Resident Evil: The Final Chapter Review

27 January 2017 3:10 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

I sit before you a broken, devastated Resident Evil fan after watching Paul W.S. Anderson’s final nail in Alice’s coffin, Resident Evil: The Final Chapter. This is coming from a Resident Evil apologist, nonetheless. Someone who enthusiastically purchased the original trilogy on special edition. Someone who’s most swoon-worthy cinematic crush is Sienna Guillory as Jill Valentine. Someone who goes to bat for Kevin Durand as Barry Burton, or refers to all six five previous Resident Evil movies as sweet horror junk food. These sentiments are wholly sincere, but even an Alice devotee like myself can’t recognize The Final Chapter as a fitting means to any franchise “end” (there’s always sequel potential). Abandon hope and pray for a swift finish all you want – welcome to the lowest depths of mainstream horror Hell.

Anderson’s “last” Re hurrah opens on Alice (Milla Jovovich), who rises from a Washington, »

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 »

Review: Resident Evil: The Final Chapter is a Thrilling and Satisfying Finale for Fans

26 January 2017 10:29 PM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

As far as franchise finales go, Resident Evil: The Final Chapter is an ambitious, action-packed, and wholly satisfying conclusion for fans of the series that have been waiting to see what the Umbrella Corporation and the Red Queen’s endgame would be ever since the original Resident Evil film premiered in 2002.

The Final Chapter picks up directly after the events of its predecessor, Resident Evil: Retribution, with Alice (Milla Jovovich) now making her way back to Raccoon City for her last chance to thwart the evil corporation behind the zombie outbreak that has ravaged our planet and infected the human population.

What Alice doesn’t initially realize is that her journey is just as much about herself as it is about humanity, as certain truths are revealed and we discover the significance of Alice’s existence and how she has parlayed the going-ons at Umbrella. And as she prepares for the ultimate showdown, »

'Dog's Purpose' and 'Resident Evil' Open as Oscar Nominees Expand

26 January 2017 2:10 PM, PST | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

Along with three new wide releases this weekend, it's the first weekend following the nominations for the 89th Academy Awards and several nominated features are improving their nationwide reach, some for a second time. Among the new releases Universal will premiere Amblin's A Dog's Purpose amid some controversy, Screen Gems has Resident Evil: The Final Chapter and Weinstein will debut Gold. Beyond that, a lot of attention will be on last weekend's #1 film, Split, and La La Land as it adds 1,271 theaters following its 14 Oscar nominations on Tuesday. At the top of the weekend chart we could see a bit of a tug-of-war as two Universal titles will compete for #1. First we have last weekend's champion, Split, which debuted with over $40 million and has shown good traction on IMDb in terms of page views compared to similar releases and in terms of user rating, which has hovered right around 7.6 ever since release. »

The Weekend Warrior 1/27/17: Resident Evil: The Final Chapter, A Dog’s Purpose, Gold

25 January 2017 9:00 AM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Welcome back to the Weekend Warrior, your weekly look at the new movies hitting theaters this weekend, as well as other cool events and things to check out.   

This Past Weekend:

As per my Thursday update, M. Night Shyamalan’s thriller Split ended up winning the weekend but with way more than anyone, including myself, predicted, with more than $40 million for its opening weekend. That’s pretty impressive, and his first movie to open at that level since 2010’s The Last Airbender. Meanwhile, Vin Diesel’s sequel xXx: The Return of Xander Cage ended up making around where I predicted, taking second place with $20.1 million, not a great sign for the continuation of that franchise. Michael Keaton’s The Founder ended up right around where I predicted with $3.4 million, ending up just outside the Top 10. Hidden Figures, La La Land and Sing continued to do well with minimal drop-offs.
