From gameplayer: "Sony Pictures has released some new information about the upcoming computer animated Resident Evil movie - and all signs point to suck."
That trailer put all the RE movies to shame. Thats what RE movies should of been. How are they going to point out that the movie is going to suck because its only released in limited theaters when FFVII:AC wasn't even released in the theatre and that did pretty dam well?
"all signs point to suck." LMAO .. as you said just like FFVII:advent children it wont suck.. for 2 reasons : 1- animations dont have the limits of a movie :more bad ass zombies,better visual effects , and more capable main character :D btw there is no emotion in RE movies, so what the hell , even a virtual character can play better than milla 2-SONY Knows how to make an absolute stunning animations (making FF many years ago 4 example :D )
i just need this on bluray and im more then happy
I didnt think it was even coming to theaters. I thought it was a straight to dvd/bluray release.
Sorry but Square made both Final Fantasy: Spirits Within and Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children, not Sony. The only part that Sony played in it was the distribution (Columbia Pictures and Sony Home Entertainment, respectivly).
What sucked was the live action movies. This CGI movie of RE that HAS to do with the real characters of the RE series will be great! There is no doubt in my mind.
The author's right - the Appleseed films are soulless. The hottest dumbest girl in the room with a rich, pampered upbringing. I don't know anything about the director, but if he's a no-name, relatively first-timer, then signs are certainly pointing toward lame. Having said that - I own both Appleseed films precisely BECAUSE they're pretty and vapid. So basically....gorgeous CG zombies in an airport? Count me in. But only on Bluray.
Appleseed isn't about soul, its about looking good, and the animations are fantastic even by western standards. This RE movie however hardly look better than some in game CGI and comes with the second rate animations to match.
But since it says SONY on it, I guess people feel they HAVE to bash it. Never mind the fact that this is a capcom project as well.
yes, it's a conspiracy against Sony And Capcom is part of it. They made a shyt movie so that people will bash Sony and the PS3. Anyway, I think this is really what all Resident Evil movies should have been. I saw the last 3 and they sucked balls. The graphics of this one doesn't look great but I really liked what I saw. it's shaping up to be a good RE for the fans.
I'm just saying how the American media views Sony as a company as of late
Yeah, funny thing is, it's not even the American media, it's freaking Aussie. Next time at least read the source if you're not going to read the article. Let me guess, the Australian media is against Sony too right? Give me a break.
i completely agree with you ...but just out of curiosity, why were the 6 or 7 comments above me deleted?
Because they were comparing their manhood...
AWESOME!!! screw live action RE...gimme gimme gimme
The trailer looks like a bad cutscene from an old Resident Evil... Where is JJ Abrams when you need a script?
and jj abrahams isn't the one to go to for a script. man, that movie was major suckage.
this guys must be an idiot this movie looks like an RE movie should not completely making their own story like the live actions movies
JJ sucks so bad at screeplays (not TV stuff) its not even funny. Honestly, go watch Cloverfield. I saw it for the first time 2 months ago. It was garbage. It held my interest until they decided not to explain where the damn monsters came from. That was Garbage, you KEEP HIM AWAY from my Resident Evil. Again, please recognize that this is Hollywood, and it doesn't matter if you have talent, if you know people you can make a movie. They made 2 sequels to Resident Evil only because of the box office numbers, those movies SUCKED! I will take a chance on CG since the characters from the GAME are in it. Just to be a bastard, I'll go out on a limb and say the clone wars CG will be better than the live action Episode II. Cause that was awful as well. :) @3.2...Bubbles for you. I hate Cloverfield so much.
the article makes it sound bad. thats how i prefer my zombie movies to be. i'm downloadin it.
Evil Dead. Not really zombie but... you know.
actually i think the movie will kick so MUCH ass i hope they make it available on blue-ray.
The trailer actually makes me MORE interested in this movie. It looks like it could be really good... I'll have to keep an eye out (no zombie pun intended) for this one.
I have no idea why people say it will suck, but we will see.
It's going to suck, no doubt. That trailer looks like it was put together by a team of 10 year-olds that think a zombie jumping at the camera at the last possible second is still considered "shocking". Hitchcock invented that! Why are we still using it though? It's used in poorly made indie slashers...not high-quality CGI masterpieces. FFVII:Advent Children was good...like most of you have said. Was it great? No... But it was good. You are all settling for mediocrity when we KNOW Square Enix is more than capable of producing an original and heart-retching title. CGI is lame. Who cares if it's not restricted? Emotions can only really be brought out by HUMANS! A CGI character is cheating! I realize it takes a long time and a lot of talent to make them move certain ways, but why would you want to see a CGI performance over a living, breathing actor...especially a good one? I just don't understand it. Beowulf could have been SO GOOD as a live-action film. If 300 had been CGI, it would've been lame too. Think about it.
Since when did "for the fans" become a generic phrase for "passable...but only if you're mentally retarded and you REALLY REALLY enjoy the games"?
It WILL be on BR, after all its Sony pushing the film. At the other hand, the trailer look pretty good!! I doubt it make a big buck on theater but it will make some money on BR/DVD market.
I really enjoyed the Appleseed movies, thank you very much. :P
I really liked the last Appleseed movie I saw... the one with the mind-control cell phones. :)
They got it backwards. The real-life movie weren't that great after the first.
The first was only good when Milla Jovovitch showed her twat.
I'm still really looking forward to this one.
"and all signs point to suck." Real smart...
I want this movie just because it's RE and seeing Leon was pretty killer in the preview.
I agree with the article, but then I wasn't fan of the 2 final fantasy animated movies either. Though if I am bored and have nothing else to watch I might try watching it when it hits video stores.
This movie is going to be awful. I base this statement off of a 40 second trailer. The animation is awful. It looks like a PS2 cutscene.(Oh NO!!!) ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ Sarcasm. Seriously, what is with all of the whiners? I didn't bring nearly enough cheese to this party. Wait until you see the actual film. Here is what will make this a purchase on Blu Ray for me; 1. Zombies...check 2. Gore....check 3. Above Average Animation...check
They could make the whole movie in RE2 cutscene animation and Bob Dole would still watch it. Bob Dole loved it when Leon shot that zombie in the head and it fell over and twiched.
I just realized this is from gameplayer.au They hate anything Sony related. I bet if Microsoft published this movie, they would consider this the new Citizen Kane.
when was it said that this would be a cinimatic masterpiece? it looks like it will be fun to watch and that's all that matters. and why does gameplayer austrailia take such an interest in ripping sony so much on stupid stuff like this.
umm guys go watch the trailer. it really does suck
..for you to back your opinion up. I watched the trailer and it looked pretty good to me. It doesn't seem to push the envelope when it comes to CGI, but it's certainly above average. Are you a Resident Evil fan?
CGI textures and moddeling - Looks like a bad ps2 cgi cutscene. Animation - also looks like a bad p2 cutscene. Voice acting and script - from the few lines in the trailer, it makes army of two look like an oscar winner. and normally you dont put the wosrt parts of the movie into the trailer. Story - Sounds interesting. I would now like for you to back up that it looks good. Just cos it has Resident and Evil in the title doesnt make it good.
It looks like it has potential to me... as long as the dialog is better than that of the original game :)
I think it looks pretty good, actually.
didnt think so
"Worse, it’s being produced by the same outfit that made the last two Appleseed movies- glossy, but soulless tech-demos devoid of cinematic oompf" i stopped reading at this point... he might be right, but applessed movies were great.
It will sell well on Blu-Ray, regardless of quality. And I reserve judgment until I have actually seen it. That site doesn't really have my trust either...
gameplayer.com.au hates sony,make some research on past articles.Do you remember this one:"Is the PS3 broken?Would you buy a RAM expansion pack?" http://www.gameplayer.com.a...
not too mention this ridiculous article blaming sony for hyping a ubisoft game. http://www.n4g.com/News-175... the bias from that site is incredible
Now they have no excuse in not showing extreme blood and gore. We better see head explosions, heads getting ripped off including various limbs on the body... and hella blood and zombie guts... if not.. Why make it CG??
..gore and zombies. Nothing less.
How about this. THEY SUCK FOR SAYING IT SUCKS. Morons.
now that i checked the trailer am more into to it then before i saw the trailer!!! it looks its gonna me a movie that is sooooo close to the originals games(RE1,2,3)! cant wait to see this movie in 3d in cinema's!! and about the article saying about something sucks before it comes out or even worst when the movie is still at its early stages and the story and many others things can be changed while still in process!! CONCLUSION: the author of this article is a bot him self
like this guys opinion,it won't suck,it will be great for all Resident Evil fans,we should be happy we're getting to get to see a CGI movie as well.
finally a resident evil film that portrays the true direction of the game i've seen the trailer and the only thing i don't like is the voice acting of Leon Kennedy it seem a little over exaggerated but as far as Sony releasing it in only three theaters in japan and none over here bites i guess we have to wait...
appleseed 1 was ace number 2 not so much it was good till the end with the wird girl who was al evil then went emo and wanted to die if its anything lke number 1 i will buy this
theaters. SONY will bank on it, if they sell 2 million blue rays its 48 million bucks. Its actually cheaper and more profitable for companies to do straight to retail than a theatrical release.
I think this movie is going to turn out to be all right. At least this one actually has something to do with the games. All three of those ones with Jovovich in them were COMPLETE CRAP!
Wow what a stupid article. First, being directed by a no-name director is NOT a bad thing. Go watch Training Day with Denzel Washington and tell me if you can tell it's directed by a guy who had only done commercials. Everyone has to get their start somewhere. Second, the last two Appleseed movies were AWESOME. I don't think that guy like Appleseed very much. Third, of course it's a limited release in theaters in Japan. The Japanese do not flock to theaters like we do here, and why pay to put it in a lot of theaters for nothing? It is an animated movie after all which will make all its money in the DVD/Blu-Ray market.
He didn't really explain anything except that he didn't know who the director was... what signs? And I'm thinking since it's completely CGI, it will at least be better than the other movies... not that I care...
I'll rent it when it comes to the PSN store.
The trailer for this looks really bad. RE5 please.
Im a big fan of the Resident Evil games and movies, ive been playing resident evil since the PS1. There is no resident evil game or movie that sucked..
I have almost the same state of mind. Except that I HATED the survivor g-con series on the playstation 1.
Can't be any worse then the ACTUAL movie.
