The New ‘Resident Evil’ Is Here.


Set to 4 Non Blondes’ “What’s Up” (for some reason), this teaser definitely indicates that the movie will take more influence from the video games than the previous franchise, as we see the likes of Claire, Leon and Jill facing off with zombies, devil dogs, lickers, and various other creatures as they attempt to find a way out of the besieged city. Gamers are also sure to recognize some of the locations, and director Johannes Roberts (47 Meters Down, The Strangers: Prey at Night) does seems to have at least made an effort to replicate the dark, grimy chills of the games, but is this really the Resident Evil movie fans have been waiting for? Check out the trailer for yourselves below and let us know what you think.

Rockstar Games have announced that their latest game, Grand Theft Auto V, has netted over $800 million USD  in revenue in just 24 hours. The game will become the fastest selling in history when it breaks the $1 billion mark, a feat which took Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 fifteen days when it was released last November. Rockstar are reported to have spent $265 million creating and marketing Grand Theft Auto V, making it the most expensive game in history, but figures like these mean they’re even smashing the Hollywood movie box office. Compared to the blockbusters of 2013, GTA V is already ahead of films such as as Fast and Furious 6, World War Z, Man of Steel, and the year’s highest grossing film, Iron Man 3, which took home $200 million USD on its opening weekend.
