  • A scene from the movie Resident Evil 5, starring Milla Jovovich, Michelle Rodriguez, Bingbing Li.

Who's int it? Milla Jovovich, Michelle Rodriguez, Bingbing Li

The plot: Zombie slayer Alice (Jovovich) is back for the fifth instalment of this video game-tomovie franchise, and this time she’s fighting the source of the world’s destruction, i.e. the Umbrella Corporation. This evil company actually created the virus that transformed the globe’s population into the flesh-eating undead she battles in the first four films.

Fighting the powerful group, Alice travels from Tokyo to New York and Moscow, but is left disoriented when she makes a discovery that turns everything she thought was right about her world upside down (kind of like how we felt when we first watched Jersey Shore).
