Pre-production has begun on Resident Evil: The Final Chapter

07.16.2015

It has been three years since the release of the last RESIDENT EVIL movie. With a delay due to Milla Jovovich's pregnancy, pre-production is now underway on the supposedly last film in the video game horror franchise. Director Paul W.S. Anderson, who is also married to Jovovich, is gearing up for a shoot set to start in August in South Africa.

Jovovich shared the first image from the behind the scenes of RESIDENT EVIL: THE FINAL CHAPTER via her Instagram account. Not much can be garnered about the film aside from the fact that a face cast will be needed for the main star, something quite common on productions like this.

The RESIDENT EVIL franchise has actually been surprisingly successful despite middling to bad reviews from critics. While the first three films failed to get much more than $100 million worldwide, the two most recent entries have each grossed close to $250 million. With no entry making more than $60 million domestically, the go ahead on sequels seems to be more of a bottom line rationale.

RESIDENT EVIL: THE FINAL CHAPTER does not currently have a release date but expect to see it hit theaters in 2016.

There still making these!?

Again perfect example of a global market place. If this was for US release only it would have died 3 movies ago. The plot is so convoluted now who can even follow it. All that's left is time travel and time line reset.

Ultimate guilty pleasure series for me. Are they great films? No. But they have a cheesy b-movie charm that keeps me entertained. Because in reality, it's not like the gaming franchise is lightning the world on fire at the moment anyways......

Sorry I just can't get into these movies, they look like B movies at best & hard to believe every movie has gotten a theatrical release.

I like all of Resident Evil movies except for Retribution which I think it's too convoluted for its own good. Resident Evil movies are popcorn fun and I'm excited for this new one which I'm sure will not be the last one.

A quick top in no particular order of the best 3D movies that pop up in my mind :
- Resident Evil After Life
- Resident Evil Retribution
- Avatar
- Gravity
- Pompeii
- The 3 musketeers
- Drive

I'll still maintain that the first movie was a lot of fun. It just went downhill from there.
