We're not sure that there's a single franchise out there that's cheaper and more joyless than "Resident Evil." The video-game adaptation is now a decade, and four entries, old, and has continued to add literally nothing to the zombie genre, the action movie genre and the cinematic artform in general. But with the last film, "Resident Evil: Apocalypse," proving by far the biggest entry in the series, taking nearly $300 million worldwide, there's no end in sight, and original helmer Paul W.S. Anderson, who also directed the fourth entry, is returning to the series for "Resident Evil: Retribution," on which shooting is imminent, ahead of a release a year from now.

Sienna Guillory Won't Be BackWe may not understand the love the "Resident Evil" franchise has, but money doesn't lie. Now four films strong, each entry in the series has made more than the last (not unlike the "Final Destination" franchise) with last year's 3D effort "Resident Evil: Afterlife" taking in nearly $300 million worldwide, pretty much doubling the $147 million haul of "Resident Evil: Extinction." That's the kind of numbers that makes studio executives tingle. Anyway, it wasn't much of a surprise that a sequel was greenlit and stamped with a 2012 release date last fall, and this bit of news is even less of a stunner.

George Clooney's 'Ides Of March' Arrives On October 14th; 'Resident Evil 5' Hits Sept 14, 2012

With shooting already underway on George Clooney's political drama "The Ides of March," Sony already has Oscar in their eyes (and are avoiding a potential marketing hiccup) by moving the film from the previously scheduled December 2011 bow to an October 14, 2011 release. In what we imagine will be a platform release (and pretty much guaranteeing a TIFF premiere for the film), the movie will run up against some major heavyweights that weekend including "The Big Year" with Steve Martin, Jack Black and Owen Wilson, the remakes of "Footloose" and "The Thing," as well as the 3D swashbuckler "The Three Musketeers." The move out of December will also allow Sony to put all their energy in November and December in what will likely be an insane press run up for David Fincher's "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo."
