Alrighty, kids! The footage descriptions continue now with a recap of what was shown for the upcoming flick Resident Evil: Retribution. Read on to find out what’s new, what’s old, and whether or not Milla still has access to a magical make-up supply!

Via Evan Dickson:

The highly anticipated sequel from Screen Gems promised to be the biggest and most expansive entry yet when I visited the Toronto set late last year. And, on that front, the footage didn’t disappoint.

First, director Paul W.S. Anderson came onstage to introduce the footage and the scope was something he brought up as well. The first thing show was the second trailer for the film, the one that you’ve all seen that features Milla Jovovich and Oded Fehr in a domestic morning setting – as if the zombie apocalypse never happened. It never struck me before how much this particular sequence seems to be influenced by the James Gunn/Zack Snyder Dawn Of The Dead. Regardless, the 3D looked actually looked excellent. This film was shot in the format and you can tell. There’s simply no comparison between the real thing and a post-convert.

After that the cast was brought out. Milla Jovovich, Oded Fehr, Michelle Rodriguez and Boris Kodjoe took the stage and answered what were pretty much honestly the most generic questions over and over again. Fan questions at Con tend to err on the softball side and usually include a lot of life history (“I grew up loving your stuff”). Oh wait – did I forget to mention the guy in the Buzz Lightyear outfit who asked Michelle Rodriguez if she would “have sex with him?” Yeah, that happened. She handled it well though – comparing him to a creepy neighbor she once had.

Next up was the main feature. A sizable chunk of the film’s climactic sequence. I actually saw this scene being shot when I visited the set and the footage looked every bit as fun and colorful as I expected. It takes place on an ice floe, with Alice and her cohorts on a tundra-esque landscape facing off against an evil Sienna Guillory and Michelle Rodriguez in order to rescue Bingbing Li’s Ada Wong. Right before things erupt into gunfire Rodriguez’s Rain injects herself with the Las Plagas virus. This allows the ensuing gunfight to riddle her with bullets that her body absorbs and ultimately discharges through her fingers. Some intense fighting ensues with some plenty of weaponry being directed at the screen to take advantage of the 3D.

Ultimately what I saw looked pretty cool. I’ve never been a huge fan of the Resident Evil franchise, but this one legitimately does look better than the others. It’s colorful, cartoony, violent and past-paced. I certainly imagine that this will be the entry I like more than any other.

Written and directed by Paul Anderson, Resident Evil: Retribution stars Milla Jovovich, Boris Kodjoe, Li Bingbing, Kevin Durand, Shawn Roberts, Michelle Rodriguez, Sienna Guillory, Johann Urb, and Colin Salmon. Look for Resident Evil: Retribution in theatres on September 14, 2012, from Screen Gems.

Synopsis
The Umbrella Corporation’s deadly T-virus continues to ravage the Earth, transforming the global population into legions of the flesh eating Undead. The human race’s last and only hope, Alice, 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 newfound 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.

Did You Catch Chucky and King Kong’s Cameo in the Trailer For Steven Spielberg’s New Movie?

Published

on

You may remember a few months back there was a kick-ass trailer for Steven Spielberg’s new action-adventure flick Ready Player One that sported a quick glimpse of not only Freddy Krueger, but Stephen King’s Christine as well.

If those slick horror nods weren’t enough for you, today we have the new trailer for the film and guess who shows up? Yep, you guess it (from the headline) but Mr. Charles Lee Ray lends a helping knife to a battle, and the king of the jungle, Kong himself!

Very cool.

The cameos in the trailer is one of those “blink-and-you’ll-miss-it” things, but let’s hope he has a bit more screentime in the actual movie. By the way, is Ready Player One reminding anyone else of the “Imagination Land” episode(s) of “South Park”…?

You can check out the trailer below and then make sure to let us know what you think!

The film is directed by Steven Spielberg, based on the novel by Ernie Cline, and stars Tye Sheridan, Olivia Cooke, Ben Mendelsohn, Simon Pegg, Mark Rylance, T.J. Miller, Hannah John-Kamen, and Letitia Wright.

Ready Player One hits theaters March 30, 2018.

Synopsis:

In the near future, outcast teenager Wade Watts escapes from his bleak surroundings by logging in to the OASIS, a globally networked virtual utopia where users can lead idyllic alternate lives. When the eccentric billionaire who created the OASIS dies, he offers up his vast fortune as the prize in an elaborate treasure hunt. Along with gamers from around the world, Wade joins the adventure, and quickly finds himself pitted against powerful corporate foes and other ruthless competitors who will do anything, in the oasis or the real world, to reach the treasure first.

on

Get Out Scores Golden Globe Nominations… as a Comedy

Published

on

It was a few weeks back now when we let you guys in on the rather puzzling news that the Golden Globes was considering Jordan Peele horror-thriller Get Out as a nominee…

As a comedy.

As strange as that news was, it seems it wasn’t a joke in its own right as Jordan Peele’s Get Out has scored a nomination for Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy. The news broke this morning with the full release of this year’s nominations via EW.

You can check out the full list HERE.

One cool thing is that actor Daniel Kaluuya also scored a nod for Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture – again, Musical or Comedy. Sad and borderline ridiculous that Peele didn’t score nods as director OR screenwriter. For shame, Golden Globes.

What do you think of this news? Are you just glad Get Out got SOME love from this year’s Gloden Globes, or could you care less about awards season? Let us know below!

Synopsis:
Now that Chris (Daniel Kaluuya) and his girlfriend, Rose (Allison Williams), have reached the meet-the-parents milestone of dating, she invites him for a weekend getaway upstate with Missy and Dean. At first, Chris reads the family’s overly accommodating behavior as nervous attempts to deal with their daughter’s interracial relationship; but as the weekend progresses, a series of increasingly disturbing discoveries lead him to a truth that he could never have imagined.
