The 'Resident Evil' video game franchise is one of the most successful of all-time, selling over 61 million units since the first game made its debut on the Sony PlayStation in 1996. The game series was so popular it spawned an equally lucrative film franchise, which includes five movies (and a sixth on the way) that have grossed almost $1 billion worldwide. But, would all that have happened if Gwyneth Paltrow had starred in the movie? Because that almost happened. Find out more about that, and other scary scoop from the 'Resident Evil' movies is this week's horrifying You Think You Know Movies? episode!
It's hard to imagine that before 'The Walking Dead' shot to fame, Capcom's 'Resident Evil' franchise helped spark the pop culture revival of the undead. Now, while a sixth film in the divisive video game horror franchise remains in limbo, German production house Constantin claims to be developing a 'Resident Evil' TV series for the future.
Today's featured character is Resident Evil's Ada Wong, that vixen full of mystery and charm. She may not dress practically to fight off zombies and other Bio-Organic Weapons, but we're not complaining.
