The Zombie Hordes Always Win

The next person to call me Leeloo gets one in the foreheadSurprising no one, “Resident Evil: Afterlife” conquered the North American box-office over the weekend, pulling in a respectable $27.7 million. Being the only new film in release, and playing in extra-pricey 3D, its primacy was pretty much guaranteed.

I haven’t seen it, of course; I’ve been more or less absolutely ignorant of anything that isn’t directly related to TIFF. I didn’t even make it to the grand opening of the Lightbox yesterday, busy as I was with festival screenings and interviews; sounds like everyone had fun, though.

It’s more of the same today: A couple of movies, plenty of interviews, and a lunch I’ve been looking forward to for quite some time. Which is also an interview, actually. You’ll see.
