Resident Evil is indeed an action-horror movie franchise centred upon Capcom’s Resident Evil video game brand.
In January 1998, the German company Constantin Films acquired the rights to remake the series. Screen Gems bought the distributorship to Resident Evil in 2001 as well as engaged Paul W. S. Anderson to write and produce the film. Anderson rejoined as director in Resident Evil: Afterlife (2010), Resident Evil: Retribution (2012), as well as Resident Evil: The Final Chapter (2013), and remained as writer and producer for Apocalypse (2004) and Extinction (2007). The very first six movies revolve around Alice (Milla Jovovich), a fictional woman.
Alice is indeed a former security specialist as well as a clandestine operator who’s really fighting the Umbrella Corporation, their bioweapons have set off a zombie apocalypse. Claire Redfield, Jill Valentine, Ada Wong, Carlos Olivera, Chris Redfield, Leon S. Kennedy, Barry Burton, and antagonists Albert Wesker, the head of Umbrella Corporation, and James Marcus, Umbrella’s top virologist, all feature as protagonists from the videogames.
Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City, a reboot movie, was released around 2021. Although garnering mostly unfavourable critical reviews, the movie series has made $1.2 billion to date, making it a high movie franchise built upon the video game.
In just this sense, the Pokémon movie franchise, which had a worldwide gross of $1.8 billion since about 2021, had surpassed the sequence at a certain time in the mid-2010s. In 2017, it’s also the highest-grossing horror movie franchise as well as the highest-grossing zombie movie franchise.
With exception to the first movie as well as the Final Chapter, most of the movies debuted there at top of the box office in North America. Inside the 2012 Guinness World Records Gamer’s Edition, the franchise takes the top for “most live-action movie adaptations of such a video game.” This is also the highest-grossing movie franchise inspired on even a video game, with over $1 billion in worldwide box office receipts.
