Paul W.S. Anderson-directed Resident Evil: Retribution 3D hits theaters at the end of this week and I recently had the chance to sit down with Michelle Rodriguez to discuss her return to the series and the challenges of playing “good” and “bad” versions of the same character. [SOURCE]

The extended clip is dubbed in German, but do you really care? Let's be serious you don't watch these movies for the insightful dialogue, it's all about the action. Am I right or am I right?



We previously saw a one minute version of this scene, now you can enjoy an extra minute and a half. I also included the latest television spot which features quotes from three whole critics that took a shine to the film. Enjoy!

Recently Dread Central had the chance to sit down one-on-one with one of our favorite lively and outspoken actresses - Michelle Rodriguez- during the press day for Paul W.S. Anderson's upcoming sequel Resident Evil: Retribution.

Considering she's a franchise veteran returning (from the dead, no less) to the world of Resident Evil after ten years away, we spoke with Rodriguez about the evolution of Rain Ocampo and how she changed things up with her character in this fifth installment. Rodriguez also discussed how Rain's superhuman abilities were freeing for her as an actress in Retribution as well as her thoughts on reuniting with her Resident Evil family again.

Milla Jovovich first stepped into the boots of the zombie-fighting heroine Alice a decade ago, not knowing that the “Resident Evil” role would help cement her place among the queens of sci-fi. It’s a character she’s been happy to inhabit and develop, working closely with her now-husband Paul W.S. Anderson, who wrote all five films in the franchise and directed three of them, including “Resident Evil: Retribution,” which opened last weekend.

Lucky for both of them, Jovovich isn’t ready to break up with Alice.

“Every time we see Alice, it’s like some different iteration of the same person,” the 36-year-old actress said. “I think there’s definitely been an evolution. It’s not like we’re repeating the same stuff over and over and regurgitating things over and over, so it keeps it fresh and keeps it interesting. I think that’s what kind of makes these movies stand apart, in that sense where people do keep coming back to see them.”

How Resident Evil director and cast cope with the criticisms of the RE-Movieverse.



Rodriguez then went on to mock those that slag off the films: "At the end of the day I know that the franchise has its following and it has that following for a reason. "They love the idea of the world destroying itself. So I don't think this franchise is going anywhere soon - even with critical 15-year-olds". That's a sure fire way to win them over, Michelle.

In a separate interview Paul W.S. Anderson confirmed his view that it's more about what the fans think than the press, saying: "When the audience are on their chairs cheering, that's my job done!" 'Resident Evil' star (and Anderson's wife) Milla Jovovich chipped in to explain that if you put the people that criticise the films in one room and ask them to do better, they'd end up killing each other. In between flirting with Yahoo! Movies and telling us that she loves British guys (because we're smart) she jokingly mocks "the haters" of the franchise. And after five films, you can rather see her point. Watch the full interview @link. [SOURCE]
