The Most Anticipated Movies of 2017

RE7: Biohazard isn’t the only Resident Evil thing releasing this week. The franchise has spawned a world beyond the games too, most notably with a film series involving Milla Jovovich at its centre. And even though critics haven’t favoured a single chapter, Resident Evil stands as the highest earner in the video game adaptations market. Incidentally, it’s coming to a close this week with the release of Resident Evil: The Final Chapter, in cinemas worldwide on January 27.
