Resident Evil Afterlife tops weekend movie box office

The Resident Evil movie series, while only loosely based on the Capcom survival horror series, have been pretty successful for its studio Sony Pictures. This weekend's release of the fourth movie in the series, Resident Evil Afterlife, has been no exception. The Hollywood Reporter reports that the film easily won the box office crown this weekend with a total of $27.7 million in ticket sales.

The amount was boosted by the movie's 3D release which raises the ticket prices for those who want to see zombies coming out of the screen. The movie reportedly cost just $60 million to produce and with this weekend's box office success it's likely that a fifth movie in the series will be made. Indeed (spoiler alert) Afterlife ends with a cliffhanger that would strongly suggest a new film is already planned.
