Theater Report: [RESE4]

Posted by: dsbman on Sep 10, 13:09

Resident Evil: Afterlife 3D

Showtime: 10:00 a.m.

Venue: AMC La Jolla 12 (San Diego County, CA)

10 butts / 278 seats (3% full)

Snacks: Hot chocolate from 7-11.

Trailers: I caught Saw 3D, Faster, and The Social Network, but missed the rest.

Box Office Potential: Beats me -- this show is pretty useless as far as prognosticating is concerned. I saw Apocalypse early in the day (probably around 3) at a similar location and attendance was less than 10, so if anything then no drop in attendance and the % of 3D dictates the figure. In other words, we'll know later tonight.

My Take: More of the same, this time on a 95-minute 3D demo-reel. Paul W.S. Anderson pretty much does the usual -- forgets the "adaptation" in "video game adaptation" -- and produces what you'd expect of the original source, sans the controller. It's at least less painful than Extinction and has one cool action set-piece towards the end. And Jovovich and especially a brunette Ali Larter are predictably hot, so at least there's that. Full review to come on BucketReviews.com tomorrow morning.
