Briefly: With studio box office estimates putting the weekend haul for Resident Evil: Afterlife at $27.7m domestic and a total of $73m worldwide, it’s no surprise that there’s already a promise of a fifth film in the series. “This new Resident Evil is the first one to ever open at number one worldwide. It’s the biggest movie in the franchise,” Milla Jovovich told Vulture. “So we’re definitely going to make another one.”
Reportedly, Jovovich’s husband, director/producer Paul W.S. Anderson, already has ideas for a fifth film, but that he might solicit fan input as well. Saying that the team is planning to talk to fans via “Twitter and stuff” about what characters they want in the film, Jovovich says that the creation of the next film will be “a more interactive process.” My input, predictably, would be “please don’t make another one,” but there’s no chance that and similar requests will be factored in.

Comic-Con 2010 is over, and I’m still reeling from the experience. Just like last year, the entire event was a whirlwind with insane crowds, a healthy dose of line waiting, and some unexpected bits of awesome. By the time it was over, I was more than ready to go home. But I know for a fact that in a week or two I’ll be screaming “We have to go back!” — while disheveled and inexplicably bearded.
At some point this week, the entire /Film crew will record their overall thoughts of the event on a special episode of the /Filmcast. But for now, here are my personal picks for the best and worst of Comic-Con 2010. (Fair warning: I didn’t include some major panels [see: Marvel stuff] that failed to get me excited. If you liked those panels, and others I didn’t mention let us know in the comments.)

We ran a promo trailer for the film in September of last year, but I never thought much about it afterward. Now there’s a trailer for the film, which has Norton in badass mode, and sporting some truly frightening cornrows. Check it out after the break. Read More »
