The Resident Evil movies are the cinematic equivalent of zombies. Just when you think they're dead, when you won't be subjected to them anymore, they get up and shuffle to your local cineplex.
Guess what, they're making yet another Resident Evil flick. Tentatively called "Resident Evil 5", this will be fifth film outing for the horror series that's based on the popular video games.
The last Resident Evil flick, Resident Evil: Afterlife, did so-so at the domestic box office, where it took in $60 million. Abroad, it ranked in over $200 million, which is over twice what Resident Evil: Extinction did and more than what the first three films did put together. So you wonder why they keep making these movies? Because people (like me) in foreign countries keep seeing them (sorry).
"The movie makes money," star Milla Jovovich said in August 2009 about the then in-production Resident Evil: Afterlife. "If it makes more money than the last one, you'd think that people want to see another one, so we'll do another one."
