*Updated with a look at Milla Jovovich in her new ass-kickin’ getup.
Two more behind-the-scenes videos have surfaced from the set of Paul W.S. Anderson’s Resident Evil: Retribution, which takes us to Toronto where production has shut down some major streets. Star Milla Jovovich plays director as she interviews Bingbing Li, who plays Ada Wong in the film, along with other crew members.
They both star alongside Sienna Guillory, Colin Salmon, Shawn Roberts, Michelle Rodriguez, Johann Urb, Oded Fehr and Kevin Durand, where Urb plays the leader of the Resistance, who teams with Jovovich’s Alice character as she battles the Umbrella Corporation and the swarm of undead.
Keeping consistent, Sony Screen Gems will release September 14, 2012. READ MORE
People have a lot of understandable beef with The Thing prequel. Fragmented story, Eric Christian Olsen and CGI. Mainly the CGI.
Last month I interviewed Eric Heisserer, one of the film’s screenwriters, and he was very forthright that the film was originally intended to be all practical. “I got this job going in with the firm, fervid belief that no CGI should ever be in this movie. That it should be all practical. We are creating a very grounded psychological thriller and part of that paranoia with the monster movie is to have the monsters as real and as grounded as everything else we’re making around them”
And now some new images of the practical work by Vincent Guastini, some dating back to when The Thing prequel was a SyFy Channel product under the tutelage of Frank Darabont (before it changed hands to Strike Entertainment/Universal), has gone online.
Per Make Up Mag, “Vincent Guastini’s special make-up effects credits include Requiem for a Dream, Dogma and Saturday Night Live; he also contributed to the recent prequel of The Thing, although you wouldn’t know it from watching the film.
Guastini, who describes himself as “a huge fan of The Thing mythos” says he was contacted in 2004 when the Syfy channel was considering an episodic version of The Thing, and later, a made-for-TV feature version penned by Frank Darabont…
Over time, however, concepts for the film and Guastini’s original ideas and designs ultimately weren’t used in the film. So here is your chance to see Guastini’s concept designs and sculptures for the first time.”

You got to give it to Milla Jovovich, who is just having a ball taking her Twitter followers behind-the-scenes of the now-filming Resident Evil: Retribution. It helps that her husband is franchise producer (and director of three of the films) Paul W.S. Anderson, but it’s such an honest reflection of her character as it’s not about gaining PR, but about having fun doing what she’s doing. You got to love that. Below you’ll find a seventh making-of video where Jovovich takes you on a 6-minute long tour of the set. Dig on it below.
She stars alongside Sienna Guillory, Colin Salmon, Shawn Roberts, Michelle Rodriguez, Johann Urb, Oded Fehr, Kevin Durand and Li Bingbing, where Urb plays the leader of the Resistance, who teams with Jovovich’s Alice character as she battles the Umbrella Corporation and the swarm of undead.
