trailer break: ‘Resident Evil: Afterlife’

Take a break from work: watch a trailer…


The world has been waiting for the first fully immersive 3D videogame movie. And here it is. Prepare to really feel the viral infection coursing through your body and transmogrifying you into a zombie. It’s gonna be totally awesome! And totally not at all like all the other Resident Evil movies.

Paul W.S. Anderson is, like, an artist.

Resident Evil: Afterlife opens in the U.S., Canada, and the U.K. on September 10.

    Is that snark I see coursing through your comments? Why, I believe it is, hehe. At least it’s shot in 3-D, for what that’s worth.

    It will be interesting to see how long people will continue to fork over that much cash for mediocre to bad movies. Here, even at the cheapest matinee, it’s still $9 for 3-D.

    This is just like you, to review this like you review LOST.

    Thumbs up.

    or you could just play the video game:

    3D = (supposedly) more immersion.
    Movies = passive entertainment
    Video games = interactive entertainment
    3D video game movie = more immersive(word?) video game movie experience.
    conclusion – just play the friggin’ RE games and be done with it. Stop with the crappy movies already!

    Also, Leeloo Dallas Multipass is getting kinda old for this sort of thing. She needs to find a new line of work.

  • TommyB

    …and it seems to be the first movie shot almost entirely in slow motion.

    Crap Blows Up IV: The Crappening. Now with whirlyblades, yay!

    JoshDM: I disagree that Jovovich is too old (lud, she’s only 34!), but it would be nice to see some variation in the roles she gets. (One of the things for which I really liked Red Planet – OK, one of the few things – was that Carrie-Ann Moss was allowed to look her own age rather than be made up as generic vinyl chick.)

    TommyB: I guess if it’s all slow motion you can save money on the film?

    I disagree that Jovovich is too old (lud, she’s only 34!), but it would be nice to see some variation in the roles she gets.

    You’re right, she’s not to old for playing the role.
    It’s the franchise, that’s getting old.
    Jovovich is doing the same stuff, the same moves over and over again (and worse, she did it in “Ultraviolet”, too!) and it’s getting tedious.
    And when you see this repetitive stuff, you realize, you’ve seen it all before, but she was younger then.

    I guess if it’s all slow motion you can save money on the film?

    Those guys in Hollywood are geniuses!
    Save money using slowmo and put that money all in “the newest 3D-Technology”.
    They know just what we need!

  • Slow motion + shaky cam = weeping despair that honest cinematography is gone forever.

    If they ever make a movie based on Yar’s Revenge I will sue Hollywood for emotional damages.

    ohhh man! I can’t WAIT to see this!
    I was just thinking the other day that I was missing something in my life, and then it hit me – OH YEA! I need moar slow-motion ass kicking action sequences featuring hot chicks doing cool dramatic action posses after completing neat acrobatic flicks.
    Plot? Who needs that, when you have the above?

  • JoshDM

    What’s really funny is that this is absolutely NOTHING like the Resident Evil video games. Your characters are about the LEAST acrobatic avatars out there.

    Speaking of which, MAJ, if you want a great Wii experience, go get Resident Evil 4 : Wii Edition and try to play it with the lights off.

  • My favorite part about the whole affair is how they managed to find a way to attached James Cameron’s name on the trailer.

  • Kensai

    O.M.F.G. ENOUGH. WITH. THE. STUPID. F*CK*NG. THREE. DEE. B*LLSH*T.

    and for that matter … enough with the Resident EVil BS too. Way to NOT capture the video game.
