Resident Evil: Retribution On Top at the Box Office, When Might We See Part Six?
Paul W.S. Anderson’s Resident Evil: Retribution came out on top at the weekend box office grossing an estimated $21.1 million.  The fifth chapter in the series – released in 2D/3D/IMAX – could not quite overcome the Resident Evil: Afterlife’s opening of $26.6 million. The sequel was up against the 3D release of Disney’s Finding Nemo.  Both were able to knock The Possession down a few notches from the number one slot it held two weeks in a row. Retribution’s performance continues to prove there’s still an audience for the series, even though its opening gross proves that audience is dwindling.

Review: Resident Evil: Retribution
Five movies into Screen Gems’ successful franchise, you should know what you’re going to get with a Resident Evil movie.  Let’s see if you agree: Each chapter usually begins with an action-packed set piece followed by the usual “My name is Alice…” shtick uttered with complete seriousness by series stalwart Milla Jovovich which is followed by more action usually involving a range of mutated ghouls, hand-to-hand combat and gunfire while a spasmodic soundtrack assaults your eardrums. Now, if this is your thing, Resident Evil: Retribution is the sequel for you – and I’ll get into why shortly.   Those who have despised the series since it began in 2002 and questioned its durability at the box office, why are you even reading this?  That goes for those detractors out there who balk at the franchise’s lack of faithfulness to the video games as well.  In fact, that goes especially for you guys.  Turn away.  Because Resident Evil: Retribution will draw up the same complaints from you:  It’s a loose interpretation of the Capcom video games, and an even more loose representation of the characters you love.
