42 posters “unofficial” Resident Evil: Retribution

After a long, dark winter with absolutely no information on Resident Evil: Retribution, the new film in the franchise into the spotlight.

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.

25 Things to Know About Resident evil: Retribution

  • The fifth installment is more of a chase movie that the previous films and it’s more realistic.  It’s also being filmed in 3D like the last one and they’re filming in 4K.
  • The movie opens where the last film ended which was on the deck of the Arcadia ship.
  • There are three different types of zombies: the newly created undead, the Russians – Las Plagas, and the zombies in Tokyo. Some are called lickers (which are all CGI).  Everything is enhanced with the Russian zombies, and their actions are almost super-human.
  • There are more zombies this time around except they’re in smaller groups.
  • Makeup Effects Supervisor Paul Jones wanted the makeup on the zombies to look realistic. He took inspiration from Day of the Dead.
  • There was talk of doing Resident Evil 5 and 6 back to back but ultimately they decided shoot the fifth film by itself.  However, Paul W.S. Anderson has a rough idea for the 6th film and he sees it as the finale of the series.  (Of course if the movies keep making tons of money, then who knows if the studio will let it end).  He also already knows where the final Umbrella location will be in the 6th movie but wouldn’t reveal it.
  • Nick Powell is doing the second unit direction and he’s also the stunt coordinator.  He’s a real “get” for the production as his previous credits include Braveheart, The Bourne Identity, Goldeneye, and a number of other huge productions.  He’s designed some awesome action set pieces and should help to make the fifth Resident Evil look incredible.
  • For fans of the series, the opening paragraph revealed that some previously killed characters have come back from the dead.  This is a result of Umbrella and cloning.  As a result of being brought back by Umbrella, Jill Valentine is wearing a red scarab on her chest (seen in previous films) and she’s under their control. Also, “Bad Rain” injects herself with the Las Plagas parasites and this gives her superhuman powers.  During our interview with Michelle Rodriguez she made a statement that she can now eat bullets.  We were not sure if that was a joke or if she really can now eat bullets.
  • At some point in the film, we’ll see a flashback to before the Umbrella virus destroyed the world.  During the flashback we’ll see Michelle Rodriguez wearing heels, without guns, and driving a Pruis.  She’ll look and act unlike anything we’ve ever seen her do in any movie.  In addition, we’ll see Carlos Oliveira (Oded Fehr) as a dad in suburbia.  It’ll be a stark contrast to how we’ve seen them in the previous films.

The human race’s last and only hope, Alice (Milla Jovovich), awakens in the heart of Umbrella’s most clandestine operations facility and unveils more of her mysterious past as she delves further into the complex. Without a safe haven, Alice continues to hunt those responsible for the outbreak; a chase that takes her from Tokyo to New York, Washington, D.C. and Moscow, culminating in a mind-blowing revelation that will force her to rethink everything that she once thought to be true. Aided by new-found allies and familiar friends, Alice must fight to survive long enough to escape a hostile world on the brink of oblivion. The countdown has begun.

DVD Review: Faces in the Crowd

What do you do when you can see, but are unable to recognise even those closest to you?
How do you avoid a killer when you can’t remember his face? He could be anyone and you could be his next victim.Anna Merchant (Milla Jovovich) faces this crisis when she inadvertently witnesses a murder by a serial killer known only as Tearjerk Jack.The killer slits the throats of his victims then weeps over their bodies.

In escaping from the killer, a blow to the head leaves Anna with a neurological disorder which means she cannot remember faces. Every time she looks at a face, it changes to such an extent she is unable to recognise even her boyfriend, nor her best friends.

Working out the identity of the killer is even more difficult.Only one face helps her through her life-and-death quest for answers – Detective Kerrest (Julian McMahon).

They must put the pieces together before the killer eliminates the only witness to his crimes – Anna.But everywhere Anna turns is a new face and person who could be the killer.She must use the new skills taught to her by a psychologist to identify the mannerisms and movements of this man and stop him.Faces in the Crowd is certainly a first-rate psychological thriller.We are left in the dark as much as Anna, never knowing who the killer is and when he is going to rear his head again.

RESIDENT EVIL: RETRIBUTION Casts Chinese Actress Li Bingbing

Director Paul W.S. Anderson will return to helm Resident Evil: Retribution, while Milla Jovovich​ and Sienna Guillory​ will be reprising their roles as Alice and Jill Valentine​. Punisher War Zone actor Colin Salmon​ has also been confirmed to appear alongside Michelle Rodriguez​, Oded Fehr​ and Shawn Roberts — all veterans of the film franchise. Johann Urb, Boris Kodjoe​ and Kevin Durand will also star.

Though no official plot details have been revealed, a few specifics have hit the net: Characters from the previous films Chris Redfield​ (Wentworth Miller​), Claire Redfield​ (Ali Larter​) and K-mart (Spencer Locke) have been captured by the Umbrella Corporation; the film will feature the Las Plagas​ parasite. Las Plagas are a breed of parasitic organisms in the Resident Evil games. Unlike the t-virus, which turned its victims into mindless zombies, the victims of Las Plagas become much stronger and highly resistant to pain, while working collectively to pursue their targets.

After recently revealing that Johann Urb will fill the role of Leon Kennedy​ in the film, Milla Jovovich has confirmed another casting:

“We have finally cast our Ada Wong​! Drum roll please! So, Ada Wong in RE5 is being played by Chinese actress Li Bingbing​! We’re so excited!”

BingBing’s credits include The Forbidden Kingdom​, Detective Dee​ and the Mystery of the Phantom Flame and Snow Flower and the Secret Fan. Screen Gems​ and Sony Pictures have scheduled Resident Evil: Retribution, which is currently filming in Toronto, Canada, for theatrical release on September 14th, 2012.
