There have been a lot of really bad adaptations of video game movies in Hollywood – and most of them have flopped. Only one director, in fact, has found any real form of critical and commercial success with these films: Paul W.S. Anderson.

While some fans of the Resident Evil games might object to his interpretation of series, it's hard to argue with the box office results. The first four films in the series have earned over $700 million. And Resident Evil: Retribution took in over $108 million worldwide in its first two weeks. (A sixth film has been greenlit.)

How Resident Evil director and cast cope with the criticisms of the RE-Movieverse.



Rodriguez then went on to mock those that slag off the films: "At the end of the day I know that the franchise has its following and it has that following for a reason. "They love the idea of the world destroying itself. So I don't think this franchise is going anywhere soon - even with critical 15-year-olds". That's a sure fire way to win them over, Michelle.

In a separate interview Paul W.S. Anderson confirmed his view that it's more about what the fans think than the press, saying: "When the audience are on their chairs cheering, that's my job done!" 'Resident Evil' star (and Anderson's wife) Milla Jovovich chipped in to explain that if you put the people that criticise the films in one room and ask them to do better, they'd end up killing each other. In between flirting with Yahoo! Movies and telling us that she loves British guys (because we're smart) she jokingly mocks "the haters" of the franchise. And after five films, you can rather see her point. Watch the full interview @link. [SOURCE]

Los Angeles: What is the most attractive thing about a horror film? Music and off-course ghosts? Sure enough! Sony Pictures upcoming release Resident Evil: Retribution once again brings the terrifying music and the blood drained undeads.

The previous films in the franchise too gained popularity for its music as much as its storyline and action. The music of the film, action and its special effect together are the flavor retainers of the Resident Evil films.

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.”

With Hollywood flick Resident Evil: Retribution now in theatres, the cast doesn’t need those fancy outfits anymore! Today at the Tokyo Game Show, the costumes from the movie were on display, headless statues and all.

There’s Alice’s skin tight body suit, Ada Wong’s dress, Carlos Olivera’s gear, and the outfit worn by Japanese popstar Mika Nakashima, who plays one of the infected victims. Have a look.
