Alodia, Ashley Gosiengfiao take part in ‘Resident Evil: The Final Chapter’

Popular influencers and cosplaying sisters Alodia and Ashley Gosiengfiao held a special private screening of Resident Evil: The Final Chapter with their friends recently at the Columbia Pictures Preview Room to celebrate their participation in the film’s production.

The sisters were among loyal Resident Evil fans from various countries of the world who were invited by the filmmakers to play ass-kicking zombies out to infect Milla Jovovich’s Alice and her team, the only remaining survivors of the undead apocalypse.

Alodia and Ashley flew to South Africa for the location shoot last year, and experienced first-hand the thrill of being made up as zombies, complete with authentic costumes and gnarly attitude!

For their efforts, both girls’ names appear in the film’s end credits. How cool is that?!

Meet the last survivors in ‘Resident Evil: The Final Chapter’

In Columbia Pictures’ Resident Evil: The Final Chapter, Alice (Milla Jovovich) returns to the iconic origins of the T-virus in Raccoon City where she will attempt to stop the infection once and for all. After a crushing defeat in Washington D.C. and the demise of her personal army in Resident Evil: Retribution, she is given one last chance to save humanity from the final step in the Umbrella Corporation’s plan.

Once in Raccoon City, Alice makes contact with a new group of survivors – one of the last holdouts against the zombie apocalypse. Among these new survivors are:

Claire Redfield (Ali Larter). A fan-favorite, Claire has been fighting for her life since the third film in the franchise, Resident Evil: Extinction. “My character has undergone a lot of personal development over the course of the series, and that was really interesting for me,” shares Larter. “She really wants to believe, she wants to connect, she wants to be able to feel something but there’s never time because she is always being hunted.”

Doc (Eoin Macken). “Doc is the leader of a small group of rebel survivors, which exists close to Raccoon city. He is involved romantically with Claire Redfield, and they are just about surviving,” says Macken. “It’s all very finely balanced because it’s essentially the end of the world and everyone is very aggressive and stressed.”

Christian (William Levy). “He has a very strong personality, he doesn’t trust anybody. He shoots first and asks questions later.,” Levy describes his character. “He’s willing to do whatever it takes to save the survivors, to save them all, including giving his life.”

Dr. Isaacs (Iain Glen). Last seen in Resident Evil: Extinction, Dr. Isaacs must battle Alice in her endeavor to put a stop to their radical plans for world domination. “He’s an insane egomaniac and wants to take over and rule the entire planet,” notes Glen, “but his plan has backfired because she has a goodness about her and a desire to recover the situation which wasn’t inbuilt in his creation.”

Abigail (Ruby Rose). “For her to still be surviving when there are so many people who haven’t, and for her to be kind of in charge of where she is, she would have to be a fighter, very strong and very smart,” says Rose. “She’s very good with her hands, she’s very much like the mechanic in the group, and she creates a lot of really cool weapons.”

Resident Evil: The Final Chapter picks up immediately after the events in Resident Evil: Retribution, in which Alice is the only survivor of what was meant to be humanity’s final stand against the undead. Now, she must return to where the nightmare began – The Hive in Raccoon City, where the Umbrella Corporation is gathering its forces for a final strike against the only remaining survivors of the apocalypse.

‘Resident Evil: The Final Chapter’ ends explosive saga in IMAX PH cinemas

The IMAX release of Resident Evil: The Final Chapter will be digitally re-mastered into the image and sound quality of an IMAX 3D Experience® with proprietary IMAX DMR® (Digital Re-mastering) technology. The crystal-clear images coupled with IMAX’s customized theatre geometry and powerful digital audio create a unique environment that will make audiences feel as if they are in the movie.

Resident Evil: The Final Chapter, marks the sixth and final installment in the astoundingly successful film franchise adaptation of Capcom’s hugely popular video game series, having grossed over $1billion worldwide to date and being the most successful video game film franchise ever.

Given the franchise’s remarkable success, the fimmakers of Resident Evil: The Final Chapter must find a point of difference, create an exceptional and unseen angle to the narrative, and, if even possible, raise the bar and deliver to audiences a spectacular close to the series.

Says Producer Jeremy Bolt, “Fans can expect an Alice who is more vulnerable, more human, and a world that is more desperate, more distraught. The characters are at the end of their tether, giving us a sense that humanity is just about to lose to the T-Virus and to the Umbrella Corporation.

Says Milla Jovovich who returns as Alice: “I think fans are going to love this movie because it is everything that we have wanted but didn’t have the chance to make for the past six movies, and at this point finally we’re doing it. There are so many aspects that will be mind blowing, the crazy sets, the amazing stunts- there’s something for everybody. This movie has kind of got it all and I’m very proud of it”.

Co-star Ali Larter enthuses, “It’s unbelievable that this will be the ‘last chapter’ and I think it will be the rawest. Audiences will feel this different connection between people and sense a real humanity.

‘Resident Evil: The Final Chapter’ caps biggest game-based film franchise

Writer, director, producer and franchise veteran Paul W.S. Anderson returns to helm Resident Evil: The Final Chapter, the sixth and final installment in the most successful video game film franchise ever.

The improbable beginning of Paul W.S. Anderson’s fantastically successful, franchised motion picture adaptation of the Resident Evil video game reads like a Hollywood ending. Producer, Jeremy Bolt, who has worked with Anderson for 25 years and including all the Resident Evil editions, recalls, “Back in 2002 we had just made a movie for Warner Bros. called Soldiers, which did not perform as well as we’d hoped. So I went back to England and made a couple of small films, and Paul holed up in his house in Venice Beach where he played video games for 6 months. Out of the blue he called to say ‘I’ve been playing the game Resident Evil and we have got to get the film rights.”

Since then, Resident Evil has grown to become one of the most successful game-to-movie franchises in the history of cinema, the first five installments in the franchise having grossed in excess of $1 billion worldwide and earning consistent No. 1 openings at the box-office. Thrilling fans of Capcom’s original video game and action/sci-fi movie audiences alike, the movie franchise has built up a hardcore fan base in the millions and reputation of its own over the 14 years that it has enthralled audiences with cutting edge action and a continually novel approach to the sci-fi/action genre.

Milla Jovovich stars in Screen Gems’ RESIDENT EVIL: THE FINAL CHAPTER.

Bolt opines about the global success of the series. “I think it’s the combination of style action and horror. It isn’t a straight horror movie and it isn’t a traditional zombie movie. It has a fantastical, and Sci-Fi element. I think Paul introducing the character of Alice made it different to the game so that when you go see one of these movies you don’t just have to be a fan of the game to enjoy it, you get something extra which is the character of Alice. I think also we have a good villain in the evil and all-powerful Umbrella Corporation, it’s always a good villain to have that and totally relatable in the modern world.”

Jovovich shares her ideas as to why audiences have been so enthralled with Resident Evil, “I like to believe that people respond to honesty, passion and fun. When we started we didn’t expect this Resident Evil movie to become a franchise, we did it because we loved the video game. Every film has become a labor of love and fun, experiencing more and more in this crazy, amazing, sci-fi world. I think everybody involved just really has a great time doing it. I think audiences respond to that energy and enthusiasm.”
