A couple of days ago some photos hit for the new Resident Evil film and now there is a trailer.
The film was shot in 3D so should have a better look than the Clash of the Titans remake which was shot in 2D and converted. However, the in the trailer below you can see they’ve gone for lots of deliberate shots of things heading straight at you. Subtle 3D it is not! Still looks as if it will be a lot of fun and if you are a fan of the others you will no doubt enjoy this one.
It is due out on 10th September.
What did you think of the trailer?

The film also stars Spencer Locke, Wentworth Miller, Shawn Roberts, Boris Kodjoe, Kim Coates, Norman Yeung and Kasey Barnfield.

At the start of August one of the posts in The Random mentioned that Resident Evil 4: Afterlife the 3D sequel was in the works and due out on 27th August 2010. There will also be multiple clones of Alice (Milla Jovovich) in that film.
It doesn’t end there though. Bloody Disgusting has the news that Sony Screen Gems is planning a fifth film.
The word is that the studio is planning a quasi-reboot, which may be called Resident Evil Begins.
The idea is to redo the story of a special military unit who fights a powerful, out-of-control supercomputer and hundreds of scientists who have mutated into flesh-eating creatures after a laboratory accident.
I have no idea why they would go and reboot the series when there is plenty of things to mine from the basic idea. Going back to the beginning does seem a little pointless.
I personally feel they should stick with the video games. Are you a fan of the Resident Evil films? How do you feel about a reboot of the series.

Paul W. S. Anderson – Now there is a man. Filmmaker and married to Milla Jovovich. Full of good intentions yet they never quite work out as well as they should. All of his films have great concepts or based on great work yet something always seems to get lost between conception and the big screen.
I enjoyed Event Horizon – it had a nice look and a good soundtrack, Soldier was just empty, Resident Evil disappointed me and the less said about Aliens vs Predator the better (it should have been so good). Mind you Death Race wasn’t as sucky as I thought it would be – that may have been because of the physical effects as opposed to CGI. The one constant in all his movies, apart from not being very good, has been high tech future death dealing. Now that looks as if it is going to change.
Word is that he is going all swashbuckling on us with an adaption on Alexandre Dumas classic, The Three Musketeers. He is going to co-write, co-produce and direct. However, being Paul W. S. Anderson he has to take something good and give it the patent pending Anderson twist – yep he is going 3D.
Now of all the stories that don’t need the 3D treatment I would say that this is one of them. Plus it has been done so many times before – The Oliver Reed version is my favourite.
“We are definitely modernizing ‘The Three Musketeers’ without compromising the fun of shooting a period piece,” said Anderson, who hopes to shoot in France and Germany. “But in our film, corsets and feathered hats don’t take center stage. Our version is rich in eye-popping action, romance and adventure.”
My immediate reaction to this is “Oh dear!”
How do you feel about a 3D Musketeers movie helmes by the master of disaster?

Jennifer Love Hewitt would love to pay Wonder Woman. “I want to play Wonder Woman, I want them to make the movie of Wonder Woman and I want to play Wonder Woman so bad, I think it’d be really fun,” said Hewitt over at MTV.
Milla Jovovich talks about the new Resident Evil 4: Afterlife film with /Film and how there will be multiple clones of Alice running around. “Let’s just say this. The clones are definitely in it. You’ve got multiple Alice’s kicking serious butt. And definitely the real Alice has some pretty major things happen to her that change the stakes a little bit. That’s probably all I can give you in a vague sort of way. It’s definitely going to be a different Alice than who we’re used to…There’s the clones and it’s going to be a lot of work. I’m gonna be working every day for the next four months on this and it’s gonna be bigger than ever. It’s super-exciting.”
Tom Arnold had an interview with theNY Times. In the very last paragraph of the 3-page article he said, “All I know is Jim Cameron’s making it and Arnold [Schwarzenegger] and I are going to be in it, and it starts shooting in 14 months, the day after Arnold stops being governor of California… It’s not going to be called True Lies II, but it might as well be. I can live with that.”
Wayne Coyne of the Flamins Lips was asked if Warner Bros could use one of the band’s songs in the next trailer for Where the Wild Things Are. Jonze is considering using either “Do You Realise” or “The yeah yeah yeah song”. Pedestrian overheard a conversation between Coyne and his manager where he decided that “Do You Realise” had more of a WTWTA vibe, but then went onto to say they can use either, as he’d prefer to let them choose. I hope they use Do You Realise as that was the song my Wife and I danced to on our wedding day.
Jeremy Renner (The Hurt Locker) would really like to be Mad Max in the new film. “I’m also fighting to do the new Mad Max film with George Miller. That might be next summer. I’m screen-testing and meeting George Miller.” he told Modbee
According to Variety Phoenix Pictures bought Troy Nixey’s family fantasy screenplay Simple Machines for him to direct. He is currently two weeks into the 45 day shoot of the thriller Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark. Simple Machines follows a closed off young inventor who has to save his beloved creation from a nefarious industrialist before he uses it to harm the world.

Sy-Fy is developing another spin-off series based on the 1988 film Alien Nation reports Variety. Sounds like District 9 has kick started the franchise again. The original film was set in 1991, when alien refugees had come to Earth three years before and were now attempting to integrate into Los Angeles. Tim Minear (“Angel,” “The X-Files,” “Firefly”) is penning the update for Fox 21. This new version is set in the Pacific Northwest of the 2020’s, two decades after the first alien ship crashed on Earth.
Universal Pictures has won the film rights to the classic 1979 video game Asteroids says The Hollywood Reporter. The game featured a spaceship that had to shoot down incoming asteroids to avoid collision, that’s about it which means there’s no backstory and a lot of creative freedom for Matthew Lopez who is adapting the script.
ShockTillYouDrop is reporting that a new live-action Resident Evil sequel called Resident Evil: Afterlife is in development for a September 2010 release. They’ve actually gotten confirmation from Sony that it is indeed happening. And that Paul W.S. Anderson is at least writing the script and that Capcom is on-board.
