It's so long ago, in fact, that Milla Jovovich (who would later go on to star in the film adaptation) had yet to grace The Fifth Element. There wasn't even the sniff of a game called Half-Life. Oh, and George Clooney probably wasn't grey.
Seven incarnations later (with the likes of Resident Evil Zero included) and Resident Evil 5 is on the verge of gracing the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 for the first time. It'll be interesting to see how Capcom harnesses the power of the new-ish consoles, and there's much talk of collaboration with Hollywood to create unique graphical effects and a soaring musical score."
