Resident Evil: Extinction out on DVD and Blu-Ray February 18th
10th Jan 08
I know there are a few of you out there that don't get excited about the next Resident Evil movie, but I'm not one of you. Having been bought up on the games (I just went back on finished Resident Evil Zero on my Wii), I kind of have a soft spot for these flicks, and that's got nothing to do with the fact that I've always had a thing for Milla Jovovich since The Fifth Element.
Anyway, the third installment of the financially successful but critically questioned franchise comes out in the UK on 18th Feb and I for one can't wait. Our screener is in the post so expect a review in the next week. In the meantime, here's the official press release.
The third bloodthirsty instalment in the hugely successful Resident Evil franchise, Resident Evil: Extinction, is released to buy on DVD, Blu-ray Disc and UMDTM Video and to rent on DVD from 18th February 2008, courtesy of Sony Pictures Home Entertainment.
Based on the hugely popular survival horror video games from Capcom, Resident Evil: Extinction picks up where the last film left off and finds our heroes drifting in a desolate world populated by blood-crazed zombies. Milla Jovovich (Fifth Element, Ultraviolet) resumes her role as Alice, the genetically altered zombie killer who continues her fight against the T Virus and the evil Umbrella Corporation from the dusty wilds of the Nevada Desert. Once again she is aided and abetted by Resident Evil veterans including Oded Fehr Resident Evil: Apocalypse, The Mummy), len (Resident Evil: Apocalypse, Kingdom of Heaven) and Mike Epps (Resident Evil: Apocalypse). Star of the hit TV series Heroes Ali Larter (Final Destination) and RnB superstar Ashanti (Coach Carter) also join the cast.
Bursting with non-stop gory action and awesome special effects, the DVD and Blu-ray also boasts a huge array of special features, including three new behind the scenes featurettes, 11 deleted scenes and a sneak peak at the forthcoming Resident Evil: Degeneration. However one looks at it, both format releases mean that Resident Evil: Extinction is the perfect treat for any fan.
