“The footage takes ridiculous to another level, in a good way, as we’re being treated to what looks to be a crazy and expensive conclusion to the second Resident Evil trilogy; guns are a blazing, Alice is swinging through hordes of zombies lit on fire, and the CG creatures look both impressive and imposing. If you’re a fan of the franchise, there’s no reason to think this isn’t going to be one helluva finale.”
It finally arrived, the official trailer. Eoin Macken plays the character “Doc”. Release Japan in December 2016 and USA, January 2017.
Picking up immediately after the events in Resident Evil: Retribution, humanity is on its last legs after Alice is betrayed by Wesker in Washington D.C. As the only survivor of what was meant to be humanity’s final stand against the undead hordes, Alice must return to where the nightmare began – Raccoon City, where the Umbrella Corporation is gathering its forces for a final strike against the only remaining survivors of the apocalypse. In a race against time Alice will join forces with old friends, and an unlikely ally, in an action packed battle with undead hordes and new mutant monsters. Between losing her superhuman abilities and Umbrella’s impending attack, this will be Alice’s most difficult adventure as she fights to save humanity, which is on the brink of oblivion.
Written and directed by Paul W. S. Anderson. It will be the sixth and final installment in the Resident Evil film series, the film is a sequel to Resident Evil: Retribution (2012), based on the Capcom survival horror video game series Resident Evil. The film will star Milla Jovovich, Ali Larter, Shawn Roberts, William Levy, Eoin Macken, Ruby Rose and Iain Glen.
Studs was filmed in 2006. It was Eoin’s first major role while still in his final year in college, playing next to Emmett Scanlan. The hot-tempered, unruly players of this pub league soccer team are in dire straits after having lost everything — their drive, their skills and soon, their playing field. When mysterious Walter Keegan (Brendan Gleeson – Beowulf) shows up offering to be their coach, captain Bubbles (David Wilmot – Laws of Attraction) and the rest of his loopy, obnoxious teammates are so desperate to succeed, they agree to give him the job. Drilled into the ground with a fierce discipline they have never known, the team pushes beyond their aches and pains to gain not only redemption on the field, but more importantly, their self-respect.
