With more than 100 million video games sold and eight movies in the can, 'Resident Evil' is heading to Netflix.
Olivia Jackson, the stunt performer who suffered horrifying injuries while making Resident Evil: The Final Chapter, has won a court case against a stunt firm in South Africa.
The 'Hellboy' star believes the affection for Guillermo del Toro's movies scuppered the R-rated reboot.
Jackson lost an arm and suffered a host of other 'catastrophic injuries' in a motorbike stunt which went wrong while the film was shooting in South Africa in 2015.
The upcoming Resident Evil reboot will honour the spirit of the super-scary video games.
Judging by its opening weekend at the box office and its pounding at the hands of the critics, the Hellboy reboot looks to be a copper-bottomed flop.
During an interview with the blog Inverse, Milla Jovovich admits that she almost quit the first "Resident Evil" film when she found out Michelle Rodriguez was cast.
Milla Jovovich is in final negotiations to join the Lionsgate reboot of “Hellboy” as the main villain, TheWrap has learned.
The most commercially successful video game movie franchise yet is about to reach its conclusion in ‘Resident Evil: The Final Chapter.’ Sony just premiered the latest trailer at New York Comic Con, and now you can watch it above.
Sony has released the first trailer for the sixth and final ‘Resident Evil’ movie. “Picking up immediately after the events in 'Resident Evil: Retribution’, Alice (Jovovich) is the only survivor of what was meant to be humanity’s final stand against the undead,” reads an official synopsis.
Alice is back for one last hurrah in the first poster for ‘Resident Evil: The Final Chapter’, and we’re definitely getting ‘Hunger Games’ vibes from the fiery first look. Milla Jovovich revealed the one sheet for the sixth ‘Resident Evil’ film via Twitter overnight, confirming the first trailer would launch at 8pm today.
Having seen the briefest of previews with a ‘Teaser trailer sneak peek’ - which basically gives us the tiniest of glimpses at Milla Jovovich’s returning protagonist Alice on a motorbike - we’ve had our first proper look at her character, thanks to Entertainment Weekly, and she doesn’t look too impressed. ‘Resident Evil: The Final Chapter’ tells us, in no uncertain terms, that this is the last instalment of the popular video game turned movie franchise that’s earned almost a billion dollars in aggregate ticket sales. Directed by Paul W.S. Anderson, this is the fourth he’s helmed (along with the original, ‘Afterlife’, and ’Retribution’), having married the film’s lead actress Jovovich along the way.
The end is nigh for the long-running ‘Resident Evil’ series – and soon enough, we’ll have a full-length trailer to prove it. The husband and wife team of writer-director Paul WS Anderson and star Milla Jovovich are currently in post-production on ‘Resident Evil: The Final Chapter,’ the sixth and apparently last installment in the sci-fi horror franchise based on the hugely popular video game series. While we don’t see anyone else in this clip, ‘Resident Evil: The Final Chapter’ will reunite Jovovich with Ali Larter (co-star of third and fourth films ‘Resident Evil: Extinction’ and ‘Resident Evil: Afterlife’) as fellow zombie killer Claire Redfield.
Much as we never anticipated seeing Alice as a little old lady, very few people expected ‘Resident Evil’ to have endured the way it has. The original 2002 film from writer-director Paul WS Anderson, based on the hugely popular video game series, received a mixed reaction from fans and largely negative reviews. Sequels ‘Resident Evil: Apocalypse’ (2004) and ‘Resident Evil: Extinction’ (2007), which Anderson did not direct, met a similarly lukewarm response.
Longtime fan favourite Milla Jovovich is currently at work on ‘Resident Evil: the Final Chapter,’ which as the title suggests is said to be the final film in her signature series with her writer-director (and husband) Paul WS Anderson. Broke Horror Fan report that actress-turned-producer Felissa Rose (herself a cult icon thanks to her early role in slasher movie ‘Sleepaway Camp’) is on board a big screen adaptation of ‘Love Bites,’ a 2010 novel written by another notable 80s horror star, Adrienne Barbeau (’The Fog,’ ‘Creepshow,’ ‘Swamp Thing,’ and most recently ‘Tales of Halloween’).
Milla Jovovich, the star of the ‘Resident Evil’ movies, has said that she is 'totally devastated’ following the on-set accident which resulted in a stuntwoman sustaining serious head injuries. 32-year-old Olivia Jackson was on the South African set of 'Resident Evil: The Final Chapter’, and ran into a metal camera arm while riding a motorbike during a stunt sequence on September 5. - Star Wars stuntwoman fighting for her life after motorbike crash She’s since been put into a medically-induced coma while she recovers and is being 'carefully monitored’ by hospital staff. Taking to Facebook, Jovovich, whose husband Paul W.S. Anderson directs the movie series, said: “None of us have experienced anything like this in our careers making action films and hope we never do again, but the production reacted very quickly to ensure she received the best care and also in reaching out to her family and making sure they were informed and looked after during this overwhelmingly difficult time.
