Resident Evil: Afterlife in 3D Might Be Pushed Back to 2011
Although they've already finished shooting the entire movie, Sony is delaying the release of Resident Evil: Afterlife because they're not sure they'll have enough time to finish all the 3D work. Look what 3D is doing to our movies! STYD reports that the original August 27th, 2010 release date for Resident Evil: Afterlife, which was the same date originally announced, has been filled by the manga-adapted movie Priest instead. That time will give them a few extra months to finish the 3D on the movie. But actress Milla Jovovich isn't so sure they're officially delaying it yet, as she had a few things to say on Twitter about this news. Read on!
Jovovich said this on Twitter: "RE Afterlife IS NOT officially pushed. There have been talks of pushing it as they [are] not sure they can have it ready by July. We [are] trying as hard as we can to still meet the summer deadline though, so for the moment its still on for August." If they still delay it, Resident Evil: Afterlife will open on January 14th, 2011 instead (the same day that Joss Whedon's Cabin in the Woods in 3D opens as well). Paul W.S. Anderson has returned to write and direct this fourth film in the Resident Evil franchise. He started the series back in 2002, but didn't direct any of the sequels. So who is looking forward to this?

well the first one was the best one so maybe this will be a bit less crap and a bit more... you know, not crap... i don't recall much news on the story so i guess wait till more info/trailer is out there i also think i might be more willing to go see this in 2D rather than 3D

3d is so stupid! why the hell are they pushing it back for a 2011 release. 3d is just a waste of time. i'm a huge fan of the movies and video games and this disappoints me. it says they might change the release date but hopefully it won't be pushed back to 2011

ME! Cool popcorn movies. Don't care much about the 3D, could mean less gore

post is starting up here and im guessing 3D will be handled in another location by another company much like other movies. also seeing how its VFx intensive you're looking at 6 months, maybe more, just on the post side prior to sound or 3D being added. Better not to rush it...i think we can all live 1 extra year without it. Also it might be a business decision...lots of blockbusters next year, iron man just the first to come to mind.

the resident evil franchise isn't that bad...placing it in 3D however is. Bring it on Meatcarnage!

Just an FYI for you guys out there... I've had the true pleasure of befriending Milla recently and she has helped out a charitable effort I'm involved in. We've become friends I suppose you could say. We may never ever meet in person, but I want you all to know she is an absolute ANGEL. I have never met a more graceful, gracious, accomodating and lovely person. She has the biggest heart you will ever find. I don't mean to make it out to be a big deal, but I've met quite a few "celebrities" throughout my years but NO ONE has even come close to being as good and real a person as Milla. She is more thoughtful and sweet than you can possibly imagine. Sorry to take things to a personal side and slightly off-topic from Resident Evil, but I wanted to share what a wonderful person she is with everyone here.

I want to see the movie but do I have to see it in 3d and does it have to be pushed back to put the 3d technology? really? I liked all the RE movies and hope that Jill(Sienna Miller) is coming back like Milla said they were trying to do.

i believe paul anderson needs to be kicked off the resident evil movies! he's done nothen more than piss off a bunch of hard core fans of the game! lets also not forget that this is the same guy that messed up the mortal kombat and avp movies!! it always ends up that the first movie is good, but then he messes up by over doing the special powers and trying to make every movie into more of a sci-fi category.
