The lights are on
While we already knew that a fifth Resident Evil movie was in the works, a recent tweet from fake actress/actual model Milla Jovovich suggests that the film is called Resident Evil: Retribution.
The news comes courtesy of Destructoid, who sifted through Milla Jovovich's twitter feed to find the following comment: "no, its not called'begins'lol! it'began' 10 yrs ago! lol! i think its called RE: Retribution, but i have to ask paul 2 b sure." Jovovich also mentions that some scenes from the movie will be filmed in Tokyo.
Of course, an ominous subtitle for the movie was a given considering the last three were called Apocalypse, Extinction, and Afterlife. They can call the fifth one anything they want (fans of the games might suggest Resident Evil: Desecration), it will probably still be terrible.

i don't know why people hate the movies so much. I kinda like them. They are not the best movies out there but it still entertains me.
It stopped being even remotely good at afterlife. They just need to stop now.
They're mindless fun, I don't really think of them as RE Movies. Maybe in an alternate dimension.
Retribution? How fitting. It's precisely what this franchise needs -- movies or games.
They should have to call all these Resident Evil: The Movie 1,2 and so on, to distance them as far as possible from the games, which they do absolutely no justice to. Just like the recent games they focus on action to the detriment of scariness and horror.
i didnt mind the 1st one and 2nd one but it just went bad from there. I was so mad by how they took the exact fight scene from RE5 into the 4th film. Every move was exactly the same!! And the black guy coming out of the drain pipe at the end of the film!! im getting mad just thinking about all of this...
Terrible but +fun+!
No one goes to see a Resi film expecting plot, or depth, we go for explosions and shower scenes! WOO!
(P.S. the first one was actually VERY good, especially the sound-track, after that they sort of stopped being to fussed about scripts etc)
LOL. Afterlife was THEE worst movie I've seen in 2011.
Oy vey...is there even a story anymore? Or is it just a montage of slow motion action sequences separated by garbaldy-gook dialogue...*grunts and sighs* it never ends...
Yes, too excited for this
I'm surprised they still make these.
I personally thought it was going to be called Resurrection. That would fit better with the other subtitles. Should be another fun B-movie, can't wait
Can we just skip to the rumored reboot of the film series they were talking about a while ago?
Stop it... stop it.
it's going to suck if its anything like Afterlife...the first three were pretty good, I don't know what happened with the fourth!?!?! The CG film that followed Extinction was better than the AL atrocity!
