Columbia Tristar to dub 'Resident Evil' sequel in three Indian languages

MUMBAI: Fresh from the success of Spiderman 2 and Anacondas Columbia Tristar has big plans up its sleeve for another sequel Resident Evil: Apocalypse.



The film is scheduled to release in India on 26 November 2004 and will be dubbed in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu. It will be supported by a comprehensive marketing campaign that will span print, outdoor and television.

For the uninitiated, Resident Evil: Apocalypse is the sequel to Resident Evil and is based on the action-packed video game. Earlier this year Anacondas made Rs 47 million in the first three days of release. Spiderman 2 has meanwhile crossed the Rs-300 million mark.



Resident Evil Apocalypse sees Milla Jovovich returning as Alice. In the US video gamers, action fans and the hard-core youth filled up seats. Last weekend the film made $23.7 million.

In the US the actioner appealed mostly to young men. As many as 55 per cent of the ticket purchasers were males, with the majority being in the 18 to the 25 group.



It was the tenth sequel to open at number one this year. Jovovich's character was one of only two survivors of the contained biochemical disaster in the first film. The film begins where the first film let off, with Alice in the heart of the ravaged and deadly Raccoon City.

A deadly virus has been unleashed on the population of Raccoon City. Alice has been subjected to biogenetic experimentation by the vast Umbrella Corporation and has become genetically

altered, with super-human strengths, senses and dexterity. These skills and more, will be needed if anyone is to remain alive
