- The name of this movie “Afterlife” is the same working title that was used in the previous movie before it became “Extinction”.
- This is the first live-action movie based on a video game to be in 3-D.
- Features plot elements from Resident Evil Code: Veronica and Resident Evil 5.
- The first ‘Resident Evil’ film to be released in IMAX.
- Claire Redfield wears a red vest, her primary outfit from her game appearances.
- In past Resident Evil movies Alice has yellow-blond hair with some of her natural brown colors, but in this movie, Alice’s hair is not yellow-blond, but entirely brown-black.
- This marks the fourth time Paul W.S. Anderson has written the script for a Resident Evil movie. He has written all of them since the first one. This also marks the second time Anderson has directed a Resident Evil movie, something no other director has done.
- With a gross of around $300 million worldwide, the film is the highest-grossing Canadian film and highest-grossing entry in the Resident Evil film series.
- The plane Alice flies is a Russian-built Yakovlev Yak-52.
- Wentworth Miller jokingly admits he was nervous about his character Chris Redfield being similar to his Prison Break character Michael Scoffield: in both cases, he is in a prison and his first lines are “I know a way out of here”.
- The opening scene in the movie is quite symbolic – all people are wearing umbrellas in the rain except the zombie girl. “Umbrella” is also the name of the corporation that is responsible for the creation and spread of the T-Virus, on which the main plot of the Resident Evil series is based.
- Johnny Messner auditioned for the role of Chris Redfield.
- Boris Kodjoe trained for six weeks to perform his own stunts. During filming, he dislocated his knee performing one of these stunts.
- Jensen Ackles was originally considered for the part of Leon S. Kennedy.
- Ali Larter missed seven episodes of her TV series Heroes in order to appear in the film.
- Shawn Roberts originally was set to audition for the part of Chris Redfield before Wentworth Miller took the role. Roberts landed the part of Albert Wesker instead, played in Resident Evil: Extinction by Jason O’Mara.
- After seeing footage of James Cameron’s Avatar, Paul W.S. Anderson was sold on the idea of making the film in 3D. He and his crew spent two weeks in pre-production learning how to properly use the 3D camera system.
- Principal photography took place over a period of 55 days.
- Filming in 3D added 20% to the budget.
- During filming, Milla Jovovich accidentally shot out a $100,000 camera.
- The added size and weight of the 3D cameras meant the filmmakers were unable to use a Steadicam rig. Instead, the camera operator filmed the moving and tracking shots on a Segway.
- When Alice lands at the Alaskan airfield filled with planes, there was in reality only 7 planes in the shot. The rest were added in digitally.
- The scarab device that are strapped to the survivors and the giant zombie Axeman are lifted from the video game Resident Evil 5.
- The ship Arcadia was actually shot moored on the docks in Toronto. The docks were then all stripped out digitally.
- Milla Jovovich’s first Resident Evil movie since becoming a mother.
- The first Resident Evil to actually shoot in all the locations depicted – Tokyo, Alaska, and Los Angeles.
- The production was set to shoot on one of Toronto’s largest studios but the day before they were due to begin filming, it burned down.
- The film was released on the same day as Resident Evil: Apocalypse six years earlier.
- During the intro, one of the sniper’s remarks “Biohazard terminated.” Biohazard is the title of the Resident Evil series in Japan.
