Director Paul Anderson Said Resident Evil 6 Game Will Influence Next Movie

Although Sony Pictures didn’t screen the fifth Resident Evil movie for mainstream media, the film had a solid midnight opening with $655,000 (ahead of the $625,000 that Resident Evil: Afterlife 3D earned). Resident Evil: Retribution 3D is expected to earn over $20 million this weekend as it squares off against the 3D remake of Disney/Pixar’s Finding Nemo.

He means he's watched the trailers and thought the action scenes were a good fit

...Oh for the love of god will they just get rid of him, reboot the franchise and get a new writer who's actually played the games

The worst thing about Paul is that he actually thinks he's do gamers a favor, he thinks because the films do well in the box office that he's the first to make a good video game film. He's so far up his own backside.

"He means he's watched the trailers and thought the action scenes were a good fit"

Lol my thoughts exactly. How does Anderson even know whether anything from RE6 will fit with the movies' storyline? The game hasn't even been released yet! Oh that's right, he doesn't care much about creating a coherent plot... His last RE movie ripped off a bunch of scenes from RE5's trailers that made no sense in context of the films, so he'll probably just do the same for his next movie. >_>

If ever a film needed a reboot.. this director has to gtfo too. Granted Mortal Kombat was decent, some of his other films were just flat out garbage.. Alien vs Predator comes to mind.

Isn't the damn guy married to Milla Javovich, the actress who plays Alice?

If so, it'll be hard detaching him from the series.

I'd normally agree with you, but since RE5, the movies and the games are not so much different anymore.

Pozzle2282d ago ANOTHER Resident Evil movie is in the works?!

Godmars2902282d ago

Notice how since the - third? - every movie was suppose to be the last, only a new one gets announced shortly before or after the release of "the last one"?

And the more it happens, the more the series gets raped. The more the games take on aspects of the movies and vice versa.

No need to even think about it. If you've seen the movie it leaves off for a 6th movie.

That means that one of the monsters in the movie will be modeled after one from the game.

vortis2282d ago

In the last movie (and I apologize for keep watching each one, I don't know why I push myself to think they might get better) the one ax dude looked like something out of Silent Hill, not Resident Evil.

I know it was supposed to be the butcher from RE5 but the design and everything screamed Silent Hill.

WeskerChildReborned2282d ago

So this confirms another movie? Oh great.

Soldierone2282d ago

Okay so far we get from this

-Monster modeled after monster in trailer
-Action scenes for the movie
-It will be yet another Resident Evil movie thats slow to the point, and somehow transfers into the next movie (to ensure his and his wife's job)
-He still thinks he is making perfect video game adaptations...

Honestly the movies are fun to watch, but to say the games are inspiring it at all is laughable....not that the latest games are any better, but come on now.
