Resident Evil 5 Will take a Bite out of 2012

5 Comments

Let’s face it, the “Resident Evil” movies have ceased to be horror. It’s basically just action-adventure at this point. Of course, that hasn’t stopped the film from being very popular with the folks, so it’s no surprise that Screen Gems has another “Resident Evil” on the way.

The last one, despite looking incredibly tired, cleaned up to the tune of $296 million worldwide from a $60 million dollar budget. In anyone’s world, that means sequel. In Hollywood, that means, “Get me a sequel now, dammit!”

STYD has the powers that be slotting the as-yet-untitled fifth entry in the never-say-die franchise to land in theaters September 14, 2012.

Last we saw of our survivors, they were about to face an onslaught of those devilish Umbrella baddies. Which begs the question: it’s the end of the world as they know it, governments have fallen, salvation is tricky, and yet you can still hire a bunch of disposable goons? Man, these guys must REALLY need the work!

Below, the last scene from “Afterlife” (needless to say, don’t watch it if you haven’t seen the movie):

    I want Boris Kodjoe’s character back. He was cool.

    No, it goes beyond that. If society has fallen, and all industry has closed down except Umbrella, where are all these vehicles (cards, motorcycles, planes, etc.) getting gasoline from that everyone is using? Don’t tell me, “Well, there are still gas stations around that people haven’t used for years.” Believe me, coming from someone who had to mow the lawn every summer, I can tell you first hand that gas sitting in a lawn mower from a year ago is stale and unusable. Cause that bitch wouldn’t start up no matter how hard I tugged on the line.

      Haha, exactly. I had the same issue when I saw George Romero’s “Survival of the Dead”, where guys were still getting paid IN DOLLARS to be the bad guy’s henchmen. I mean, there are ZOMBIES roaming the world looking to eat you. Where exactly are you going to spend those little green paper rectangles?

    this is very bad news (im sorry slarkspark) first of all RE4 was awful, hastily written and was about 50 min long excluding slomos(so about 90 min) second of all the umbrella corp. could easily go man an oil drill or something like that and third and my favorite is the continuation of the storyline from the games to movie… like the main charracter of the movie being a footnote in the game… or that nobody noticed the last one was made just so someone would get a quick buck but hey at least they have awesome dialogue and shit you couldnt even guess. right? RIGHT?
