Milla Jovich takes to the screen as the badass undead slayer, Alice, in Resident Evil 6; the final instalment of the hugely successful film series.
Over the course of the five previous movies, Racoon City found itself being overrun by the undead who have been infected by a mutant virus that originated thanks a deadly vile being stolen from a corporation known as The Hive Corporation who manufacture genetic material. The virus was so strong that it was unable to be contained to one city; it soon spread to the far reaches of the world.
After The Umbrella corporation witness Alice's apparent powers, they decide to modify her (whilst she's in a coma and without her consent) and also take samples of her DNA to hopefully clone. Alice’s mission takes her to different parts of the world and as she learns of the clones, the war between the undead and the soldiers working with Umbrella deepen and Alice’s main aim is to find a safe haven for survivors to retreat to.
The 'Resident Evil' actress and her director husband welcomed Dashiel Eden, their second daughter, into the world on Wednesday morning.
The Resident Evil actress’s representative told E! News: “Milla delivered her daughter Dashiel Eden at 5:45 this morning. Everyone is thrilled and beyond happy! Milla is in cuddle mode with her new daughter.”
39 year old Jovovich and Anderson, the director who has guided the actress through the five Resident Evil movies to date, already have seven year old daughter Ever. Jovovich revealed to Us Weekly back in October that Ever was thrilled to learn of the arrival of a sister, and that she had given all her old hand-me-downs to the baby.

Like an ancient Roman version of 2012, this disaster epic is a pure guilty pleasure, sparking plenty of laughter along with the massive effects-based carnage. It also helps that the screen is packed with muscle men in skimpy skirts. The actors dive in with gusto, adding plenty of personality to the ridiculous dialogue, while director Paul W.S. Anderson shamelessly ramps up the action mayhem.
It begins in AD 79 Britain, where Roman Senator Corvus (Kiefer Sutherland) is on the rampage, slaughtering the entire Celtic community of young Milo (Kit Harington), who is taken to Londinium to become a gladiator. When he rises to fame, he's transferred to Pompeii, where he immediately catches the eye of young noblewoman Cassia (Emily Browning), much to the scowly disapproval of her politically active parents (Carrie-Anne Moss and Jared Harris). An outsider among the local slaves, Milo is befriended by tough guy fellow gladiator Atticus (Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje). And when Corvus comes to town to claim Cassia as his bride, Milo decides to take a dangerous stand for both revenge and the girl. Meanwhile, Mount Vesuvius is rumbling, getting ready to unleash plenty of movie-style havoc.
It's impossible to watch this without thinking of the cheesy, similarly styled TV series Rome or Spartacus, with their corny melodramas, excessive violence and bare flesh. Even though this is on a much bigger scale with seriously enormous 3D special effects, it's just as cheesy. And equally entertaining as well. Harington is terrific as the hunky hero, building much stronger chemistry with the honourable Akinnuoye-Agbaje than the distressed Browning. And seasoned veterans like Harris, Moss and Sutherland clearly have a great time chomping madly on the scenery as Pompeii burns.

Should the jolly animated box office hit fear the coming historical volcano drama?
The poor people of Pompeii were once blissfully unaware that a mighty volcano was about to erupt, crushing and burning everything in its wake. With this in mind, how worried should The Lego Movie be that new historical disaster movie Pompeii is opening in the US today?

However, he faces new threats when he falls in love with Cassia, the daughter of an extremely wealthy and powerful man, who is pushed into engagement with a barbaric Roman Senator. Not only that, but everyone faces a disaster of gargantuan proportions when fearsome volcano Mount Vesuvius erupts, engulfing the city in a cloud of smoke and showering it with boiling lava and scorching rock. Milo sets out to rescue his beloved Cassia as the city begins to tremble and crumble away, but just how invincible is he now?

Anderson ('Resident Evil', 'AVP: Alien vs. Predator', 'Death Race') and among writing credits are Janet Scott Batchler and Lee Batchler ('Batman Forever'), Julian Fellowes ('Downton Abbey') and Michael Robert Johnson ('Sherlock Holmes').

Milla Jovovich films over the years have gained something of a cult following among science fiction fans, with the actress receiving a host of awards and nominations for various best sci-fi actress categories. It's no surprise then that as she returned to the genre as one of the leads in the fifth Resident Evil film , her star power ensured that it would go to the top of the US Box Office charts on its debut over the weekend.
Speaking ahead of the film's release, Jovovich had revealed a great pride in the film, and her husband and writer-director Paul WS Anderson. "The one thing that I was really happy about when Paul wrote the script was... we watch a lot of action films together, and to see especially what not to do, and sometimes what we love and wanna exemplify," she explained to Flicks And Bits. "But, one thing we were in agreement on was that we watched quite a few movies where there was a lot of great action, but you didn't really care because you had no empathy for the character who was in the midst of this danger."
With the duo working together, the film has taken some $21.3 million at the box office to go top of the pile, beating out the much more fancied 3D re-release of Finding Nemo in the process, according to the BBC.
