Resident Evil - Retribution to hit theatres on 28 Sept

MUMBAI: The fifth instalment of the Resident Evil series - Resident Evil - Retribution, is set to hit the big screen on 28 September. The movie continues to star Milla Jovovich as the protagonist Alice and will be directed by Paul WS Wisemen.

The two are husband-wife in real life and this is their fourth outing as a director-actor duo for the Resident Evil series.

The Sony Pictures film also stars Michelle Rodriguez, Kevin Durand, Sienna Guillory, Shawn Roberts, Aryana Engineer, Colin Salmon, Johann Urb, with Boris Kodjoe, and Li Bingbing.

The 1 hour 35 minute film releases in 3D. The film is inspired by a game well-known for its gaudy images and heart shattering scenes clubbed with the dreadful looking zombies and is based on the fact that good wins over evil.

The character of Alice, which gained popularity immediately after the release of its original version, is a character which is non-existent in the. It is in fact is inspired by the Alice of Alice in Wonderland and is all in all Anderson‘s creation.

The creativity of the film comes from the use of different colour palette in each film. It adds new elements to each version so every time a new instalment in the film franchise is released it has a new location, new characters and a diverse colour palette that adds fun to the lore. Because of this distinctive feature the film has earned a place of appreciation even amongst the non-gaming crowds.

Another reason for the film gaining such popularity is the regular feedbacks received and a quick action taken by the team over the audience response. "We have always used the most popular creatures and the most popular characters that people have asked for. That is why the dogs and the Lickers were in the movie franchise. It‘s why Jill came into the movie franchise; it‘s why Leon, Ada and Barry are here. Because people were just clambering for them to be in the franchise," adds Anderson.

Media reports say that the sixth instalment will soon go on the floors. Incidentally, the film being in its 10th year, has revived the spirit and craze for zombies amongst the audience.
