RESIDENT EVIL: AFTERLIFE trailer is 3D-eriffic

Every few years a new Resident Evil movie comes out with a great trailer attached to it. They always look good. When they come out, they're always disappointing. They are not terrible, but they ain't good. For this fourth movie, series writer Paul W.S. Anderson (Event Horizon, Mortal Kombat) is stepping in to direct--his first time since the 2002 original. As usual, Milla Jovovich stars as the super-woman Alice.

I have to say, yet again, this looks pretty cool. Better yet, it actually looks like the video game series that inspired it. Oddly, there are a lot of great villains in this trailer--including a golum of some kind--but not one zombie. It looks like a movie full of boss fights. In any case, it looks like good, Matrix-ey fun. Hopefully, they don't go too nuts with the 3D. Resident Evil: Afterlife hits theaters September 10, 2010.

New PRINCE OF PERSIA trailer suggests this may be the first good video game movie

A lot of people have written off Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time, but not me. I think it may be the best video game movie of all time. Perhaps I should be more clear: I think it may be the first good video game movie of all time. And when your top competition is Mortal Kombat and Hitman (I'm a fan of both), it's not a hard task to accomplish. The key here: Prince of Persia creator Jordan Mechner has been involved from the beginning and Disney chose to adapt the best game in the series, even though it's been out for seven years. Of course, I could be wrong, but I'm excited for this one. It hits theaters May 28th.
