Resident Evil Afterlife Featurette New Resident Evil: Afterlife Cast & Crew Featurette

A new behind-the-scenes look at the sequel Resident Evil: Afterlife has been unveiled, just a few weeks before the 3D zombiefest makes its way into theaters.

Milla Jovovich is back once again as the lady warrior Alice – minus the “superpowers” she had in the previous entries in the action/horror franchise.  Judging by the Resident Evil: Afterlife footage released so far, that has not affected her ability to defy gravity and wield swords, guns, and ninja blades with superhuman-level precision.

The fact that the fourth Resident Evil pic is a legitimate 3D adventure has been the key element of the film’s marketing campaign – the first teaser did not so much hint at the plot of Afterlife, as it was too focused on promoting the film’s use of the same technology used to create Avatar.

Resident Evil is foremost an action franchise and the immersive nature of 3D will only enhance the experience for fans.  That is not idle speculation either – this very idea is harped on by the cast and crew of Afterlife throughout the new featurette, which you can check out below (via IGN):

Afterlife production designer Arv Grewal insists that the film attempts to not use 3D as a mere gimmick and yet every trailer released for Resident Evil 4 has been crammed full with shots of objects blatantly flying out at the camera.  Say what you will about Avatar, but at least James Cameron generally avoided that cheap trick and instead used the extra dimension to draw the viewing audience’s eyes deeper into the alien world he created.

There are a lot of moviegoers that will definitely get a kick out of zombie tentacles, axes, and sunglasses soaring out towards them – whether they will pay in large numbers for that experience remains to be seen.

Resident Evil: Afterlife arrives in 2D, 3D, and IMAX 3D theaters in the U.S. on September 10th, 2010.

  1. sorry but people do not want everything in 3d and that is fact. and where are the hunters,the plant 42,neptune,the real tyrant,and the real nemesis. the tyrant,and nemesis that we were given were stupid,and childish. these films suck, and need to be remade by someone on the same caliber as chris nolan and more like the first game.

      • Chris: As I see it this is not the kinda film that would suit Chris Nolan – the films are as they are, but what else would you expect from a video game based movie. It’s not going to be an analytical film like The Dark Knight and Inception.

        Im not yet that concerned on 3D gimmicks in this film, as the director of REA said, the kinda action in this film fits with the 3D trend of things sticking out of the screen really well during the action scenes, without shots being artificially placed that distract from the scenes and wouldn’t be seen otherwise, because that is when 3D becomes a mere gimmick, so i’m gonna base how much of a 3D gimmick this film is when watching the film, not the trailer, personally I hope it doesn’t, but this film can’t be much worse than Resident Evil Extinction. In this 2D trailer I can easily point out where the gimmicks will be, but at least it doesn’t look like their obscurely waving their weapons and body parts around the frame, but the throwing the glasses shot does make me wonder, but again, it doesn’t seem to look silly in this film, and portrays the style of the games actually quite well, and of that specific character.

  2. i did wanted them to bring back the lickers and have more of them than before. i always wanted to see the hunters in it for the first time but they completely ignored them using the resident evil 5 creatures the executioner and the majinis. other than that i still really like the movie series.

  3. Ths look Freakin Brilliant F*** all the Haters!!!!!xx

  4. Not that this movie looks bad, but (if anyone aggrees) i feel there is a little too much CGI which, not that its a bad thing it just makes me nervous, i hope the movie is about the story rather than its effects and that includes 3-D as well.

  5. Chris who nominated you to speak for everyone? Some people like 3d. I love a good 3d movie when it is shot right. If the series is almost making 100 million profit a movie I think they are doing something right.

  6. look all the movies so far r great, this movie is based more on the 5th game so wot Paul anderson is one of the best directors ever and there not goin to be like the games and one of the scenes out of this movie is actualy from the resident 5 so about stop moaning coz the movies in 3d well sorry i like to get more scared and to have the people coming out a tyou will be amazing so about stop being haters if you think the other movies r bad then dont watch them omg im one of the biggest resident evil fans so about you give the movie some respect coz its one of the best

  7. well! i was so excited when i saw the ad on t.v. about this film’s release, i love the first three films and can’t wait to watch the fourth installment, mila does a great job in these films and always has great supporting actors. bring on the undead!-michael

  8. Several years ago the return of Resident Evil in a scene that surrounded us again. Now the new chapter of Resident Evil: afterlife, this is the fourth film installment of the series.
