Milla Jovovich first stepped into the boots of the zombie-fighting heroine Alice a decade ago, not knowing that the “Resident Evil” role would help cement her place among the queens of sci-fi. It’s a character she’s been happy to inhabit and develop, working closely with her now-husband Paul W.S. Anderson, who wrote all five films in the franchise and directed three of them, including “Resident Evil: Retribution,” which opened last weekend.

Lucky for both of them, Jovovich isn’t ready to break up with Alice.

“Every time we see Alice, it’s like some different iteration of the same person,” the 36-year-old actress said. “I think there’s definitely been an evolution. It’s not like we’re repeating the same stuff over and over and regurgitating things over and over, so it keeps it fresh and keeps it interesting. I think that’s what kind of makes these movies stand apart, in that sense where people do keep coming back to see them.”

These two long-running horror franchises are more similar than you might think. Read why and then pick your favorite.

2012 will be host to a number of franchise sequels and spinoffs. But aside from big budget epics like The Dark Knight Rises, The Avengers, G.I. Joe: Retaliation, The Expendables 2, and so forth, there are also sequels to two modestly successful horror franchises on tap.

Next week, Underworld: Awakening marks the fourth entry in the Underworld franchise, while later this year sees the release of Resident Evil: Retribution 3D, the fifth installment in the video game movie franchise. Neither franchise is particularly well-loved by critics, but that doesn't stop fans from turning out each time.

As it turns out, the Underworld and RE movies have a number of similarities in terms of storylines, directorial style, and marketing. In this feature we examine those similarities, what makes these movies so consistently successful and then ask you to vote on your favorite.

Milla Jovovich has revealed that she has had zombie nightmares since working on the Resident Evil franchise. The actress has played Alice in four movies since 2002 - and is set for a fifth due next year. In an interview with the Mail On Sunday the actress said:

"I have a lot of zombie nightmares. Work has permeated my consciousness. I don't even like scary movies, but I've lived for ten years inside this world of horror images. I'm being chased, they're closing in on me. It's weird, because the actual making of the movies is very normal. The zombies are on set drinking coffee, having a cigarette and chatting. It's so banal. Then I close my eyes sometimes and they're after me."

But before we see Jovovich back as Alice she has a whole host of projects in the pipeline - including The Three Musketeers. She is all set to take on the character of M'lady De Winter in the latest take on the popular story. She has also completed work on Faces in the Crowd with Bad Luck and The Winter Queen on the horizon.

You may know her from Resident Evil, and you will see her in the upcoming Stone opposite Robert De Niro, but since the late '80s she's done everything from modeling to singing. Herein, a tribute to one of the great almost-important actresses of our time.

You know her from: The Fifth Element, Resident Evil, the occasional artfully nude photo you will find when you Google her now.

She will become forever cemented in your consciousness because of: Stone (out October 8).

Edward Norton and Robert De Niro may be Stone's stars, but Jovovich is its spirit. As Lucetta, a kindergarten teacher who will do anything to help her arsonist husband (Norton) get parole, Jovovich is a mix of vulnerability and ruthlessness: She talks just as sweetly while pushing a kid on a swing as she does while pushing her hand down a parole officer's (De Niro) pants. She exemplifies the duality of every character in the film, but where others suppress their sinister side, whether out of fear, remorse, or desperation, Jovovich embraces hers. She controls it. Relishes it. And makes it feel volatile and undeniably real. And because of this performance, for the first time, basically out of nowhere, she seems like the kind of actress who could win an Oscar. Maybe not for this role, but someday. [source]

Milla Jovovich decided to star in Resident Evil because her little brother was “obsessed” with it.

The 34-year-old actress played heroine Alice in the 2002 sci-fi film and its two sequels Resident Evil: Apocalypse and Resident Evil: Extinction. She is currently working on the fourth film in the series, Resident Evil: Afterlife, and can’t wait until fans see the finished movie.

The franchise is based on a series of video games of the same name, and Milla agreed to star in the films because her brother was so into the games. “Milla came to the franchise because her little brother was obsessed with it,” Resident Evil director Paul Anderson told Total Film magazine. “And we try to make the films reflect the games for people like that.”
