I’ve often wondered if there will come a time when people will heartily defend the Resident Evil franchise. They’re not perfect movies, of course, and they increasingly have very little to do with the video game franchise they’re based on, but there are moments when Paul W.S. Anderson’s direction and Milla Jovovich’s star-power combined to elevate the whole affair into a kind of pulp extravagance that plenty of films cannot match. Given a bit of distance — or at least a bit of separation from a crowded field of VFX-driven action movies — maybe these films could get a critical boost to match their box office numbers.
Casting for Resident Evil: The Final Chapter (which we have been assured is indeed the final chapter…for now) is complete, with Orange Is the New Black breakout star Ruby Rose joining the lineup along with returning cast members Iain Glen and Shawn Roberts. In addition, Screen Gems has revealed the official plot for the final installment, which unsurprisingly sees Milla Jovovich’s Alice fighting the evil Umbrella Corporation again.
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.
Sometimes you have to wonder if writers are aware of just how much of their scripts inadvertently rip off or openly resemble other movies. For example, three writers are credited with ‘Pompeii’ – did it ever occur to any of them that their disaster film was ‘Titanic’ meets ‘Gladiator’ with a ‘Conan’ opening thrown in for good measure? Surely director Paul W.S. Anderson, the auteur responsible for
After starring in the last 'Silent Hill' movie, Kit Harington continues his quest to extend beyond his "Jon Snow" character on 'Game of Thrones' with 'Pompeii,' a romance-action-'Gladiator' mashup directed by 'Resident Evil' helmer Paul W.S. Anderson. While the film probably isn't on the top of most moviegoers' lists of the most anticipated of 2014, the newly released photo gallery from
What was life like in ancient Pompeii before the historic eruption of Mt. Vesuvius? What was it like during? 'Resident Evil' director Paul W.S. Anderson dramatizes the event in the newly released 'Pompeii' trailer, featuring Kit Harington in all his ab-tastic glory.
Though it's obviously a teaser, this first trailer for Paul W.S. Anderson's 'Pompeii' promises two things: a ripped and ready Kit Harington (aka Jon Snow from 'Game of Thrones'), and plenty of CGI-enhanced action.
As one of the most popular actors on HBO's 'Game of Thrones,' Kit Harington is looking to turn geekdom's love of Jon Snow into a full-fledged leading man career. That plan may have stalled with 'Silent Hill: Revelation,' but he probably has a better chance with the upcoming 'Pompeii,' which casts the impossibly pretty actor as a gladiator fighting to survive in the titular doomed city. Our first l
Although many people already know him as the mysterious Mr. Eko from 'Lost,' Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje is set to be seen by by an untold number of people later this year when he plays the villainous Kurse in 'Thor: The Dark World.' And it looks like he's not saying to any other high profile roles: he's just signed on to the join the cast of Paul W.S. Anderson's Roman epic 'Pompeii.'
