Resident Evil V

Resident Evil V

Fans of the Resident Evil franchise will be excited to know that the next instalment in the franchise is less than two years away. The most recent film in the franchise “Resident Evil: Afterlife” was released during the second half of 2010 on a production budget of approximately $75 million the film went on to gross approximately $296 million from its theatrical run. The film was released on DVD and Blu-ray in Australia on 2nd March 2011.

It seems as though the Milla Jovovich starring franchise is continuing its momentum as Sony has announced a release date of September 2012 for the next instalment. Paul WS Anderson directed the first and fourth Resident Evil films, and has been involved as a producer on all four films to date. There’s no mention in this recent announcement if Anderson will be directing the new film though it is likely given his proximity to the franchise so far that he’ll be involved in some way.

Leith spent most of his formative years growing up on the coastal fringes of Western Australia without a cinema in sight. There he grew up on the wonders of home rentals before relocating to Perth and gaining access to a proper cinematic experience just in time for the Star Wars Special Edition re-releases. From there Leith's love of movies expanded to volunteering on a Star Wars fan film, reviewing films, writing about film news, and attending film and pop-culture related conventions on the other side of the world. Leith's favourite films are too many to mention but all start with the Star Wars saga, Back to the Future, the Dark Knight trilogy, Indiana Jones, Lord of the Rings and all things Kevin Smith. With an insatiable appetite for all things pop-culture related Leith also has an unhealthy addiction to the world of comics and can often be found buried under a pile of unread back issues madly trying to catch up on a number of titles coming out from mostly DC and Darkhorse.
