The Resident Evil franchise is the most successful video game movie franchise of all time with over $675.8 million at the global box office. So how did Milla Jovovich create the most successful video game movie series in history?
The Daily: Why do you think the Resident Evil movies have succeeded while so many other video game translations have failed at the box office?
Milla Jovovich: We really love them and we love making them, and it’s not just a pay day. It’s not like we’re just sleepwalking through it. In the Resident Evil movies I work just as hard as I do on a movie directed by Wim Wenders or Luc Besson. The whole point is each movie is different, each movie has a different story, each movie has a different look. Each movie has its own vibe. And I think that keeps it fresh for people too.
