'Resident Evil' Resurrected for Fifth Movie

by Brandon Gray

Resident Evil 5 has been scheduled for Sept. 14, 2012, in 3D, and no other movie is set for that date yet. That means the video-game-based action-horror franchise will continue to inhabit the mid-September slotting of the second-through-fourth movies, Resident Evil: Apocalypse, Resident Evil: Extinction and Resident Evil: Afterlife.

Though each Resident Evil sequel has arrived with subtitles that suggested some finality, the presently non-subtitled Resident Evil 5 moves forward after the franchise-high gross of the fourth movie, Resident Evil: Afterlife. Afterlife exploded at the foreign box office, making over $236 million. That was nearly two and a half times as much as Extinction and about as much as the first three movies combined.

Domestically, Afterlife wasn't as spectacular, generating $60.1 million last year, around 80 percent of which from its 3D presentations. That was up from Extinction's $50.6 million, Apocalypse's $51.2 million and the first movie's $40.1 million, and it was the second-highest grossing zombie-themed movie after Zombieland. However, Afterlife's attendance hit a franchise low.

Resident Evil 5 will arrive just two years after Afterlife, which will be the shortest wait yet of the franchise. Apocalypse opened two and a half years after the first movie, while there were three-year waits for Extinction and Afterlife.

I did not got the hole 'Resident Evil' thing when I watch a let's play of 4 so I do not feel like people should be making a movie about the shit like story the games/movie have to give me (please do not hate this is just my opinion if you feel different let me know).

I'd be happy to never see one of these films again, not least because it's a franchise I make a habit of seeing every installment from out of sheer bloodymindedness. Also the reading for my seminar later is on horror in videogames and film and this series is the focus.

Would have been my first point if we'd had time to discuss it. Fortunatly 90% of the class was taken up by a huge presentation/game/demonstration I was putting on (somehow went almost an hour). Lucky escape.

Saw this trailer in the cinema. Another shit movie in a shit series that I'll only see to make fun of. And I'll certainly not see it in cinemas.
