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. Now, while a sixth film in the divisive video game horror franchise remains in limbo, German production house Constantin claims to be developing a 'Resident Evil' TV series for the future.
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. Accompanying the game's release is a launch trailer that serves as a brief teaser for the horror on the high seas that will meet players upon stepping foot on the Queen Zenobia.
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. And just to give you a refresher on what the game is all about, Capcom has released a new video in which CapcomUnity's Brelston takes a look at the game's more distinguishing aspects.
The ‘Resident Evil’ movies could probably go on forever. There’s seemingly no serious narrative goal, and each installment is little more than a guilty pleasure for its fans. While the latest sequel, ‘Resident Evil: Retribution,’ debuted to the lowest numbers since the first film, its opening weekend box office take is still not much lower than the series best. They’re not huge money makers, but they are pretty consistent, and it shouldn’t be overlooked that they also earn about 70% of their total gross overseas.
So, as the final cliff-hanging moment of ‘Retribution’ promises, yes, there will be a part six.
How do you define a hit? What's more important: total gross or actual audience enthusiasm? The answer to this question will help us decide who actually won the weekend. Call it the "Battle of the Paul Andersons": Paul WS Anderson's 'Resident Evil: Retribution' and Paul Thomas Anderson's 'The Master' both opened this week and both had completely different results, but they beg to be compared to each other.
Here's the problem with the 'Resident Evil' movies: they feel more like video games than the video games they're based on. Capcom's 'Resident Evil' is dark, sinister, disturbing, and cinematic. Paul W.S. Anderson's 'Resident Evil: Retribution' is loud, violent, hectic, and dumb. It's like taking the world's greatest wagyu beef steak and grinding it to make a greasy hamburger.
We got more than a good look at Director Paul W.S. Anderson's latest, 'Resident Evil: Retribution,' back at the San Diego Comic-Con panel, but apparently, there was even more to be had as the film had to be cut down for today's theatrical premiere, leaving many scenes to be left unwatched by the public... at least for now.
