...Do people really think Jovovich isn't in anything but the RE movies?
You guys are gonna be pissed when you see Hellboy.
Jovovich is in this, which is entirely unsurprising, considering who's directing.
If it's so unsurprising why are people so worked up about it?
I dont fly off the handle when I see Owen Wilson in a Wes Anderson film.
Wes Anderson doesn’t usually make those films as anniversary gifts.
I guess I just dont like the clear implication which is that Jovovich is a talentless hack who wouldn't be in movies unless she was banging a screenwriter/director.
To say its offensive is an understatement.
No one's saying that. I don't think anyone has said anything bad about her acting. I specifically said that she's fine as an actress and seemingly as a person. However, that doesn't mean that overfocus on her character can be (and has been) detrimental to the end product, and that there's an obvious reason for said Character Focus.
"Overuse of Milla Jovovich in a Paul WS Anderson adaptation of a popular video game series hurting the film's quality" is far from an unfounded fear.
When you are implying the sole reason she has a role in a movie is down to her personal relationship, that is exactly what you are saying.
Pretty much the only compliments I've seen people give her in this thread is that she's hot.
A few people seem to think she doesnt even act outside of roles written for her by her husband.
Its dismissive, rude, ignorant, and most of all flat out wrong.
Also, don't lie, dude. Your posts mention exactly nothing about her acting. You said "to my knowledge she was only in the RE movies" and when talking about Anderson :"He's got a ridiculous amount of money and a hot wife. Who does seem pretty cool from interviews I've seen."
You didn't say anything about her acting at all.

That's not really on her, that's on Wes Anderson who is the only person we were complaining about.
Stop trying to shove words on people's mouth: from the very start everyone here agreed that the biggest problem with this whole prodoction is the director, because it doesn't matter how good of an actress Milla is or isn't, the director will shove all the spotlight on her in a way that will hurt the rest of the movie overall, because that is what he has always done whenever he made a movie with his wife in the cast before, and absolutely nothing points out to him breaking out of this pattern thus far.
Blah, double post.

...Paul Anderson. Wes is a different guy altogether.
Either way, I'll leave you to it.
Moving on then: C Gi, how large is this movie's budget?
We have a new screenshot, one that looks more Monster Hunter and less Three Kings.
Those outfits don't do them any favors at all.
My actual bad, that was on a different board I frequent. Sorry for inadvertently lying.
But maybe, juuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuust maybe, we're not bringing up any of Milla's other roles because they're not relevant? Again, no one is saying that she's a bad actress. We're not bringing up films she's done well because they're not nearly as relevant previous adaptations of Capcom video games where the personal relationship of her and this director caused him to make decisions that hurt the movie. It is disrespectful, I admit that. But not to Milla, to Paul WS Anderson.
Anyway, cool that Tony Jaa is in it. Though Furious 7 has told me that even a film I like can completely waste him. I actually kinda dig those costumes, even.
Tony Jaa's presence in this movie would bring me far more hope if he was the primary coreographer.
Speaking solely of his acting skills, he's good, but not outstanding.
Apparently so far, the movie will be horrible.

The last point ensured this film was gonna suck in advance.
What's the last good thing he's done? First Resident Evil movie (I'm... being generous about "good" here)?
Why would he even be hired at this point?
As of 12 March 2017, it has grossed almost $307 million, on a budget of $40 million, in large part due to a record $94.3 million opening in China, making it Anderson's highest-grossing film.
He's a hack who ruins movies due to nepotism, but he's had successes. Warranted successes? I wouldn't say so, as the RE movies got worse and worse. And yet they made more and more money.
Seems like everything else he's done other than AVP for a while have been flops, though.

If Moviebob is any indication, his RE movies were really popular among people who had either never played the RE games or didn't like the plots of the games.
Which would be a very large portion of people judging by how much money the films made.

That’s Moviebob, someone with a, let’s say, “bias” against gamers.
They were big dumb action movies and this will be as well. I don’t think people will like them, but they’ll be fine at the box office.
It still feels like a cheap move to just plop "people from the real world" onto the "exotic world".
Detective Pikachu didn't warp Tim onto the world of Pokemon, he's already living in it.
The new Mortal Kombat movie isn't going to have professional bean counter Joe McAverageguy warped into the conflict between Earthrealm and Netherrealm, we'll be focusing on the heroes and villain of those realms.
If the goal is to make a Monster Hunter movie and make it cool, then just have us focus on the characters from the games and give us bonafide reasons for following these hunters we knew zilch about.
Why is that so hard to grasp?
