With Resident Evil: The Final Chapter rapidly approaching its release date, let’s take a look at ten random facts about the first movie in the film series.

When Paul W. S. Anderson wrote and directed the first Resident Evil, he’d take a departure from the story in the games. By adding Alice (Milla Jovovich) as the central character, the movies would create their own plot loosely based on the Capcom video games.
