Resident Evil Recap Trailer

Resident Evil: Retribution has released a handy new trailer in which Milla Jovovich’s voiceover narrates a whistle stop tour of the first four movies, bringing the viewer up to speed with Alice’s journey so far.

Beginning with her origins as an Umbrella employee up to the perilous situation she finds herself in in the new film, this latest trailer serves as a welcome refresher for those who haven’t kept up with the four preceding films, trimming things down to the very barest of plot points.

Given that some characters appear to have been brought back from the dead for round five, there will likely still be plenty to confuse franchise newbies, but for those who can’t face sitting through four films of stylized nonsense, the latest trailer does its job very nicely indeed.

A user posted represent nothing more, nothing less, than 42 movie posters. You read correct , they are even released forty-two arts at the forum. But yet there are some points to consider. First, none of these posters not have confirmed by the Screen Gems movie studio. Technically, they are not official posters of the film.

It is likely that the production of has been commissioned by studio and art after having delivered the material, the team may have rejected these posters and stayed with others. Or it may have rejected all, finally.

The Three Musketeers (2011) Blu-ray review

Paul W.S. Anderson brings his “Resident Evil” experience — and star — to a modern, steampunk retelling of Alexandre Dumas’ “The Three Musketeers,” and while the results are uneven, the film does have its moments of joy.

Anderson’s never going to be a critical favorite, and this is true even for his foray into a classic literature adaptation. The film reminds one primarily of a film like “League of Extraordinary Gentlemen,” which also mashed up genre pieces and literary characters and was roundly dismissed by critics.

Milla Jovovich, Anderson’s wife and the star of the “Resident Evil” films, is probably the best bit of adventure in the “Musketeers” remake, playing Milady de Winter. In this “Musketeers,” she’s a sword-fighting dervish of action. It’s not strictly literary canon, though it’s fun to watch.

The film goes for cannon over canon, as Anderson has added Miyazaki-esque airships and sky battles to his Dumas adaptation.

The Musketeers of the title are Athos (Matthew Macfadyen), Porthos (Ray Stevenson) and Aramis (Luke Evans). Following a failed mission, they’re disbanded by Cardinal Richelieu (Christoph Waltz).

When young swordsman D’Artagnan (Logan Lerman) wants to join the crew, they all run afoul of Richileu’s agent Rochefort (Mads Mikkelsen) and his men. Richelieu is secretly plotting against the king, and eventually it’s up to the Musketeers to suss out the plot and save the day.

The film visually owes something to “Pirates of the Caribbean,” from which it also borrowed co-star Orlando Bloom, here perhaps miscast as the villainous Buckingham. The film’s not a bad way to spend a Saturday afternoon for those seeking a B-movie; and it does improve on the 1993 version of “The Three Musketeers.” But the best adaptation of the Dumas story is still 1973′s “The Three Musketeers,” directed by Richard Lester, and its 1974 follow-up, “The Four Musketeers.”

The Blu-ray is a great technical presentation of the film that allows viewers to appreciate the slick visuals. The audio quality is also strong.

Milla Jovovich Wants To Be in a ‘Resident Evil’ Game

Milla Jovovich, star of the five successful live-action ‘Resident Evil’ films, is disappointed that her character ‘Alice’ has not been featured in any of the Capcom games.

While the long-running Resident Evil video game franchise is the only video game series to have spawned a long-running and successful film franchise, one key differentiation between the adaptations and the source material is the star of the films: Alice, played by Milla Jovovich.

2012 marks the biggest year to date for the Resident Evil franchise, with Capcom having already released Resident Evil: Revelations for the 3DS and Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City, to be followed up Resident Evil 6 coming this fall, not long after the fifth film, Resident Evil: Retribution, hits theaters. With so many games releasing, Jovovich is sad that she hasn’t been able to be in one herself.

‘Three Musketeers’ On DVD Tuesday!

The Three Musketeers will soon be available on DVD and Blu-ray! The action packed adventure, which also stars Milla Jovovich, Luke Evans, and Logan Lerman, will arrive in stores on March 13.

THE BLU-RAY:
○PICTURE:
Summit’s 2.35:1/1080p/AVC-encoded transfer for The Three Musketeers is quite solid. The film was shot digitally and is subsequently without grain, but the image still appears very film-like. Detail is excellent and justly rewards the elaborate costumes and visual effects-assisted sets. Contrast is generally excellent, though highlights are a bit bright, and colors are bright and well saturated. Facial detail is excellent and close ups, and wide shots, while given every opportunity to display banding or compression noise, are razor sharp.

○SOUND:
The 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio soundtrack is as strong as it should be considering the recent production. Dialogue is crystal clear, effects are impressive and the score is rich and expansive. This mix is quite immersive, and the mid-air battles and castle sword fights allow the soundtrack to impress with hefty LFE response and active surrounds. Range is excellent, and clarity is as strong during intimate scenes as it is during action pieces. A Spanish Dolby Digital 5.1 track is also included, as are English SDH and Spanish subtitles.

○PACKAGING AND EXTRAS:
This single-disc release comes in a Blu-ray eco-case that is wrapped in a slipcover. A separate Blu-ray 3D version is also available. Summit includes a wealth of bonus materials, the most impressive of which is an excellent picture-in-picture track.. Access: Three Musketeers (2:21:02) runs a good half-hour longer than the film thanks to several segments that pause the film to provide more detail. This is PIP track is well produced, with handsome menus and a helpful legend, and includes cast and crew interviews, behind-the-scenes footage, effects comparisons and interesting trivia. There is little time when something is not popping up on screen, and the track effectively covers the film’s production. Also includes are some a few featurettes, Paul W. S. Anderson’s Musketeers (2:29/HD), Orlando Bloom Takes on the Duke (1:59/HD), 17th Century Air Travel (2:20/HD) and Uncovering France in Germany (2:14/HD). The features conclude with a handful of deleted and extended scenes (14:18/HD) and BD-Live Access.

○FINAL THOUGHTS:
Did the world need another film adaptation of Alexandre Dumas’s The Three Musketeers? Perhaps not, but Paul W. S. Anderson’s take on the story is innocuous enough, with impressive visual effects, a quick pace and ample humor. The central trio lacks personality and their quest to stop a war between England and France is silly, but The Three Musketeers is entertaining while it lasts. Summit’s Blu-ray offers excellent picture and sound and an excellent picture-in-picture track. Rent It.
