Resident Evil enters the wasteland in third movie
Joystiq reports on the third Resident Evil movie, which sounds like a mash-up of the game and the Road Warrior:
Interestingly enough, the third film just happens to be set in a post-apocalyptic wasteland, which is either a tired narrative device or some sort of meta-commentary on the series itself. The world’s been overrun with undead fellows and the only survivors, which include Milla Jovovich’s Alice, Jill Valentine and Code Veronica escapee Claire Redfield, must make a run for it in armored convoys.
As someone who has played just about all the Resident Evil games, I have to wonder what happened to all the male characters that appeared in the games … maybe they’re zombie food?
Harryhausen comes to comics
New comics based on the works of Ray Harryhausen will appear in December, courtesy of Blue Water Productions. Harryhausen produced and provided the effects for movies like The Golden Voyage of Sinbad and Clash of the Titans.
The comics will be “new stories based on his ideas” rather than sequels. The first three titles are Wrath of the Titans, 20 Million Miles From Earth and Sinbad, Rogue of Mars. Harryhausen will also contribute ideas to another Blue Water project, The 10th Muse.
