"Resident Evil: Afterlife" Beats "Porky's"

According to the Ontario Media Development Corporation (OMDC), Toronto producer Don Carmody's "Resident Evil: Afterlife", has so far earned worldwide box office receipts exceeding $280 million, making it the most successful production in Canadian feature film history, surpassing Carmody's 1980's sex comedy "Porky's".
The Toronto-lensed "Resident Evil: Afterlife", a Canadian-German-France co-production produced by Constantin Film (Germany) and Davis Films/Impact Pictures (France), released in the United States by Sony Screen Gems, internationally by Summit Pictures and by Alliance Films in Canada, was completed, shot and posted in stereoscopic 3D in Ontario, where both government and private sector investment has helped the jurisdiction emerge as a 'cutting-edge' centre of 3D production and technology.

"The Ontario Media Development Corporation is proud to have supported 'Resident Evil: Afterlife' and is pleased to watch it take its place in Canadian feature film history," said Karen Thorne-Stone, President, CEO, Ontario Media Development Corporation.

"Its remarkable worldwide success is a testimonial to the talent, skill and professionalism of the province's film production industry and continues to prove that the Canadian feature film industry is thriving."
