It’s been a long time since Alice first woke up and waltzed through Umbrella Corporation’s secret Hive headquarters, kicking her long red dress out of the way with her big black battle boots as she wandered aimlessly through the complex. She was just a confused girl back then, but since becoming privy to the Umbrella Corp’s accidental spillage of the T-Virus that led to a worldwide infection, and subsequently, the zombie apocalypse, she’s toughened up a bit — to put it lightly. Decapitating zombies, saving lives, taking down helicopters — this girl’s done it all, and more. She’s traveled long and far, was given psychic powers, had them stripped away, but she’s never stopped her fight to stop the spread of the infection, and save the world. Up next, in what’s supposedly the last movie ever in the franchise, Alice returns to the place where it all began, Raccoon City, and dives headfirst into the very same Hive that took away her memories and left her alone within its walls all those years ago. She’s back with a vengeance, and soon, all those who work for the Umbrella Corporation will know her wrath, and all those who have suffered from the effects of its harmful chemical testing will finally be shown some mercy. It’s hell or high water, but one way or another, Alice is going to end the infection, once and for all, lest what’s left of humanity become extinct, in the final farewell film in the long beloved series, Resident Evil: The Final Chapter.
With the film coming out this Friday, I was lucky enough to sit down and talk with stars Milla Jovovich, Ali Larter, William Levy, and writer/director Paul W.S. Anderson on behalf of Bloody Disgusting. In the interviews, we discuss adapting one of the most popular video games of all time to the screen, the excitement of having such a popular female led franchise, and the bittersweet experience of saying goodbye to the franchise that’s served as a second home to so many of these people for so long. Check out the videos below, and make sure to go see Resident Evil: The Final Chapter when it hits theaters this weekend!
