Today we’ve got a new poster from this year’s 3D entry in the Resident Evil video game/zombie movie franchise, Resident Evil: Afterlife as well as the first image from the upcoming Johnny Depp/Angelina Jolie pairing The Tourist.
First, Milla Jovovich is ready to rumble in this new poster for Resident Evil: Afterlife, which will see her husband Paul W.S. Anderson back in the director’s chair – as he was only a writer on the second and third films in the franchise.
You might recall that the trailer for the fourth Resident Evil flick had a moment where Alice (Jovovich) jumped out a window and furiously fired off several shots at her pursuers a la Trinity in the opening of The Matrix Reloaded. Well, that scene is the basis for the film’s new one-sheet so we’ll see if this death-defying move is more visually stimulating when glimpsed in the third dimension.

Next, we have the first pic of two of Hollywood’s hottest celebs – Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie – looking glamorous in the thriller The Tourist. The European caper flick is being directed by Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck, the filmmaker responsible for The Lives of Others which won the 2007 Oscar for Best Foreign-Language Film.
The Tourist finds Depp playing Frank, an American fellow on holiday in Italy as he attempts to recover from a recent bout of heartache in his personal life. What Frank thinks is an accidental encounter with the beautiful Elise (Jolie) turns out be anything but when the femme fatale pulls him into “a whirlwind of intrigue and danger.”
You can see the two together in the image below:
