Say what you will about them, but the Resident Evil films have proven very effective at the box office, racking up over $700 million worldwide. So it's only natural that Sony Screen Gems has locked in a September 14, 2012 release date for Resident Evil 5. There's no information as to whether Milla Jovovich will continue to star as Alice, or what the script might entail as far as being a sequel or prequel or reboot or whatever. But I've heard that like the last one, Resident Evil: Afterlife, this one is set to also be filmed and released in 3D. (At least it was shot in 3D and not converted after the fact, which made for better effects.)
There's a part of me that wishes they'd incorporate more of the games' mythology into the movies, but I can't deny that it's a whole lot of fun watching Milla run around and kick ass. Are you happy with the little nods or would you rather ditch Alice and adapt one of the games wholesale? I don't really care, because I'm obviously going to be sitting my ass in a theater and watching this new one, too!
