Resident Evil: Extinction (2007)
Of course, none of this would’ve been possible if George Romero didn’t pave the way back in 1968 with Night of the Living Dead. In the time since, he’d concocted several beloved sequels, each of which infused social commentary with unimaginable horror. That being said, it’s no wonder why the late director is still able to make new fans to this day.
Now, I’m not sure if there’s a record for such

What happens when, even ten years on, a masterpiece still has not received its due? Well, you keep pushing for it, even in the face of a macrostructure of art evaluation that will have to collapse entirely
Thankfully, it won’t be too much longer before we have some footage to mull over; Trailer Track is reporting that The Last Key‘s inaugural teaser, which will likely screen before It this coming weekend, is officially in the can. Clocking in at only 61 seconds in length, this is very much a first-look promo for Insidious: Chapter 4, which is just as well considering modern-day horror films have a tendency to showcase too much, too soon via extensive marketing campaigns.
Behind the lens for this one is Adam Robitel (The Taking of Deborah Logan), who has been faced with the somewhat tricky challenge of delivering a competent successor to Chapter 3, after it conjured up a box office tally in excess

With the home entertainment release of Resident Evil: The Final Chapter acting as punctuation to Paul W.S. Anderson’s cinematic adaptation of the Capcom console phenomenon, it’s time to open a creaking door, descend a ladder, or put a pin code in a panel that you’ve taken five hours trying to work out. We’re here to round up the most horrific beasts from the film franchise, in order to make up our own Resident Evil: Monster Squad.
Resident Evil: Extinction – Sony Pictures Zombie Crows – Resident Evil: Extinction
So often the harbingers of doom (see Game of Thrones, The Omen), the crow qualifies for this list above your average moaning zombie, or blood stained undead Doberman, not because it was one of the most difficult things to shoot in the video game, but because it plays on the long-dormant fear of birds that we
Details such as the reboot director, stars, and how the reboot would fit into the franchise narrative are being kept under wraps. But Martin Moszkowicz, chairman of the board at Constantin Film, did confirm to Variety at the Cannes Film Festival that a reboot is in development at the giant German production company, which owns rights to the franchise and has produced all of its installments.
The franchise was set to end with this year’s “Resident Evil: The Final Chapter,” which grossed $312 million worldwide after its January release, including an eye-popping $160 million in China alone. Sony helped sow the seeds of success by securing a release for “Resident Evil: Afterlife” and “Resident Evil: Extinction” in China.
Based on the Capcom video game, the series launched in 2002 with Paul W.S. Anderson directing,
Teen Wolf Season 6 Part 1 arrives on DVD July 18 from Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios (MGM) and Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment. The DVD includes a behind the scenes look at Beacon Hills, a VFX reel and gag reel.
Storm clouds gather as Scott and the pack head into their final months of high school. However, the best days of their lives turn bleak when they lose their closest ally. Before their time at Beacon Hills comes to an end, Scott and his friends will stand alone against the growing darkness and fight to stop the destruction of everything and everyone they love.
Teen Wolf was developed by Jeff Davis (creator, Criminal Minds) who also serves as executive producer. Additional executive producers include Russell Mulcahy (Highlander, Resident Evil: Extinction), Joe Genier, Marty Adelstein (Prison Break), René Echevarria (Medium, Castle), Tony Disanto, and Liz Gateley. The pilot was written by
The director of Highlander and The Shadow has been tapped to direct a biopic on Errol Flynn's early years as a treasure hunter.
Errol Flynn is one of Hollywood’s very first action stars. Known for his dashing good looks (and his notorious after hours affairs), Flynn enjoyed a swashbuckling career in Hollywood throughout the 1930s, 40s, and 50s, famously defining the pirate subgenre with turns in Captain Blood (1935) and The Sea Hawk (1940), and going West, young man, for the genre’s first Technicolor extravaganza Dodge City (1938), as well as the classic piece of historical revisionism that is They Died With Their Boots On (1941). Of course, to many, he simply remains the definitive Prince of Thieves from The Adventures of Robin Hood (1938). Sorry, Kevin.
But Flynn had plenty of adventures before he fell into movie song, drink, and lechery. And it appears it will be getting

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.
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)…

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, 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
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
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.
