Writer/director Paul W.S. Anderson's "Resident Evil: Retribution" arrives in theatres this weekend, with his wife Milla Jovovich returning for her fifth stint as Alice, the hottest zombie hunter around and humankind's last hope against the evil Umbrella Corporation's undead-spreading ways. We all know the video game inspired franchise is well-loved, having grossed over $675 million worldwide, but here are five facts about the new film you may not know.
Jovovich considers "Retribution" the most physically challenging of all the "Resident Evil" films. Hours upon hours of training in multiple styles of martial arts were spent preparing for the shoot. One particular sequence (shown above) called for nearly 200 well-rehearsed moves that included weapons work and aerials. According to Jovovich, filming in 3D added even more challenge: "I've been trained to punch and miss so that it sells to camera, but with 3-D, you almost have to make contact to sell a fight. It takes it into dangerous territory and makes it quite exhilarating."
