Some day, we’re going to look back at the career of Milla Jovovich and realize she was one of our more underappreciated action stars. While we spend our time arguing with Twitter eggs about representation in movies like Suicide Squad and Ghostbusters, Jovovich and her husband-director Paul W.S. Anderson have just been over in their own little corner of Hollywood, churning out modestly budgeted pulp action movies with a strong female lead. The upcoming Resident Evil release will be the sixth film in the franchise. Six!
As Resident Evil: The Final Chapter prepares to begin shooting later this year, we’re left to wonder whether the film’s subtitle is honest. Is this really the last chapter of one of the longest-running horror franchises? According to one of the stars of the film, it most definitely is.
At some point, the Resident Evil movies stopped being schlocky B-movies that existed solely to allow Paul W.S. Anderson to shoot Milla Jovovich in slow-motion and became, well, whatever they are now. Because they’re certainly something, although we certainly cannot tell you what kind of something they are. We’ve learned to just go with whatever these movies throw at us, so the news that Ali Larter is returning to the series for its supposed final chapter isn’t surprising or unexpected. This series could literally do anything and we wouldn’t even blink. Forget it Jake, it’s Resident Evil.
The 'Resident Evil' video game franchise is one of the most successful of all-time, selling over 61 million units since the first game made its debut on the Sony PlayStation in 1996. The game series was so popular it spawned an equally lucrative film franchise, which includes five movies (and a sixth on the way) that have grossed almost $1 billion worldwide. But, would all that have happened if Gwyneth Paltrow had starred in the movie? Because that almost happened. Find out more about that, and other scary scoop from the 'Resident Evil' movies is this week's horrifying You Think You Know Movies? episode!
It's hard to imagine that before 'The Walking Dead' shot to fame, Capcom's 'Resident Evil' franchise helped spark the pop culture revival of the undead.

This year, Universal Studios will be invaded by Resident Evil 2 during its Halloween Horror Nights. Now you can get your first look at the real life Raccoon City.
While we all hope that a Raccoon City-like incident never happens, there are more than a few zombie fans who'd love nothing more than to become a zombie-slaying hero, just like Chris Redfield, Jill Valentine, and other Resident Evil characters. During this summer, at Universal Studios Japan, they just might get their chance.
Fans of Resident Evil's zombie-killing action can rejoice in the release of the HD remake of Resident Evil: Revelations for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Wii U, and PC.

Hungry for more Resident Evil goodness? Well, you better develop some sea legs before you step aboard the S.S. Queen Zenobia in the upcoming console remake of Resident Evil: Revelations.

Often horror sequels run out of steam the further they go along, but -- for one reason or another -- the 'Resident Evil' films have proved very successful, especially internationally. That may be why the sixth film in the franchise is now dated for September 12, 2014 .
