More information on the five movies airing on the Resident Evil pop-up channel is as follows:


Resident Evil (2002)

Something rotten is brewing beneath the industrial mecca known as Raccoon City. Unknown to its millions of residents, a huge underground bioengineering facility known as The Hive has accidentally unleashed the deadly and mutating T-virus, killing all of its employees. To contain the leak, the governing supercomputer, Red Queen, has sealed all entrances and exits. Now a team of highly-trained super commandos including Rain (Michelle Rodriguez – The Fast and the Furious, Girlfight), Alice (Milla Jovovich – The Fifth Element) and Matt (Eric Mabius – Cruel Intentions) must race to penetrate The Hive in order to isolate the T-virus before it overwhelms humanity. To do so, they must get past the Red Queen’s deadly defenses, face the flesh-eating undead employees, fight killer mutant dogs and battle The Licker, a genetically mutated savage beast whose strength increases with each of its slain victims


Resident Evil: Apocalypse (2004)

After narrowly escaping the horrors of the underground Hive facility, Alice (Milla Jovovich) is quickly thrust back into a war raging above ground between the living and the Undead. As the city is locked down under quarantine, Alice joins a small band of elite soldiers, led by Valentine (Sienna Guillory, Love, Actually) and Carlos (Oded Fehr, The Mummy Returns), enlisted to rescue the missing daughter of Dr. Ashford, the creator of the mutating T-virus. It’s a heart-pounding race against time as the group faces off against hordes of blood- thirsty zombies, stealthy Lickers, mutant canines and the most sinister foe yet. Written and produced by the visionary director of Resident Evil, Paul W. S. Anderson (Alien vs. Predator) and directed by Alexander Witt, Resident Evil: Apocalypse is a superior sci-fi suspense sequel


Resident Evil: Extinction (2007)

Milla Jovovich is back to kill more zombies in the third chapter of the hit Resident Evil franchise! An action/horror film filled with huge special effects and edge-of-your-seat terror! Survivors of the Raccoon City catastrophe travel across the Nevada desert, hoping to make it to Alaska. Alice (Jovovich) joins the caravan and their fight against the evil Umbrella Corp


Resident Evil: Afterlife (2010)

The fourth installment of the hugely successful “Resident Evil” franchise, “Resident Evil: Afterlife” is again based on the wildly popular video game series. In a world ravaged by a virus infection, turning its victims into the Undead, Alice (Milla Jovovich), continues on her journey to find survivors and lead them to safety. Her deadly battle with the Umbrella Corporation reaches new heights, but Alice gets some unexpected help from an old friend. A new lead that promises a safe haven from the Undead takes them to Los Angeles, but when they arrive the city is overrun by thousands of Undead – and Alice and her comrades are about to step into a deadly trap


Resident Evil: Retribution (2012)

The Umbrella Corporation’s deadly T-virus continues to ravage the Earth, transforming the global population into legions of the flesh eating Undead. The human race’s last and only hope, Alice (Milla Jovovich), awakens in the heart of Umbrella’s most clandestine operations facility and unveils more of her mysterious past as she delves further into the complex. Without a safe haven, Alice continues to hunt those responsible for the outbreak; a chase that takes her from Tokyo to New York, Washington DC, and Moscow, culminating in a mind-blowing revelation that will force her to rethink everything that she once thought to be true. Aided by newfound allies and familiar friends, Alice must fight to survive long enough to escape a hostile world on the brink of oblivion. The countdown has begun


The Resident Evil pop-up channel will be available in HD* to Foxtel Movies and Foxtel Platinum subscribers on channel 400. Channel 400 is now home to a series of hugely popular and exclusive pop-up movie events.

Foxtel Announces Airdate for SECRET CITY


Media Release: Tuesday April 26, 2016

Foxtel Announces Airdate for SECRET CITY
New Australian political thriller premieres Sunday June 5 at 8.30pm on showcase

‘Set in a world of secrets, lies, murder and betrayal… beneath the placid facade of Canberra’


Foxtel today announced its highly anticipated political thriller series Secret City – starring Jacki Weaver, Anna Torv, Alan Dale and Dan Wyllie – will premiere Sunday June 5 at 8.30pm on the showcase channel.

Filmed in Parliament House and locations across Canberra and Sydney, Secret City is inspired by the best-selling novels The Marmalade Files and The Mandarin Code, written by Canberra political journalists Chris Uhlmann and Steve Lewis.

Amidst rising tension between China and America, Canberra press gallery journalist Harriet Dunkley (played by Anna Torv) forces her way closer to the truth, uncovering a secret city of interlocked conspiracies which will threaten her career, her life and endangers the freedom of every Australian.

Joining Torv is two-time Academy Award nominee Jacki Weaver, who makes a stunning return to Australian television in the role of Labor powerbroker Senator Catriona Bailey.

The top Australian and international cast includes:

Dan Wyllie as Minister of Defence Mal Paxton
Damon Herriman as ASD senior analyst Kim Gordon
Alex Dimitriades as ASIO officer Charles Dancer
Alan Dale as Australian Prime Minister Martin Toohey
Mekhi Phifer as US Ambassador Moreton
Sacha Horler as the PM’s Chief of Staff, Ludie Sypek
Marcus Graham as Daily Nation political correspondent Andrew “Griff” Griffiths
Miranda Tapsell as Daily Nation Canberra journalist Sasha Rose
Eugenia Yuan as Weng Meigui, wife of the Chinese ambassador
Benedict Samuel as Canberra University tutor Felix Crawford
Brenna Harding as Canberra University student Cassie Page
Matt Zeremes as Senior Constable Sean Brimmer
Sean Taylor as ASIO Director General Paul Wheeler
Justin Smith as ASD Director William Vaughn
Huw Higginson as Daily Nation Bureau Chief

Foxtel Executive Director of Television Brian Walsh said: “This captivating new series is another huge moment for Foxtel’s commitment to Australian drama. There is no doubt of the level of interest in national affairs at the moment, and this series will immerse viewers into the un-tapped world of Australian politics and intrigue – not to mention power play, blackmail and murder. Canberra features as its own character, and the standout performances of Jacki Weaver and Anna Torv are world class”.

Ms Weaver said of returning to Australia to star in Secret City: “I loved the story and I loved the character,” she said. “It’s very authentic because the books were written by two insiders, Chris Uhlmann and Steve Lewis. Secret City tells behind-the-scenes of the machinations and the treachery and the interesting things that occur in politics.

“Catriona is a very powerful and ambitious woman. I’ve drawn inspiration, not from any one female politician in particular, but part of my character is based on an amalgam of female politicians I’ve seen, not just in Australia, but all over the world. I find politics fascinating, and I follow it closely, both in America where I now live most of the time, and here at home in Australia.”

Secret City is a Matchbox Pictures production for Foxtel, in association with Werner Film Productions, supported by Screen Australia, Screen ACT and Screen NSW, directed by Emma Freeman (Glitch, Tangle, Hawke, Puberty Blues) and produced by Joanna Werner (Dance Academy, Ready For This). Executive Producers are Foxtel’s Head of Drama Penny Win, and Penny Chapman, from Matchbox Pictures.

Matchbox Pictures’ Penny Chapman said: “Chris and Steve brought Matchbox this idea when their first book was in manuscript stage. It has been a wild and wonderful ride and I am enormously proud of the creative team that brought it to the screen. It’s exciting to be partnering yet again on a drama production with Foxtel who are doing such great things for television fiction in Australia.”

Producer Joanna Werner said: “We have been extremely lucky to have such a talented cast and crew working on Secret City. Our director Emma Freeman has done a superb job in bringing this intense political thriller to life and our cast, led by Jacki, Anna and Dan, who are all incredibly impressive.”

Secret City has been written by Matt Cameron (Jack Irish, Old School), Belinda Chayko (The Gods of Wheat Street, Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries, Old School) and Greg Waters (Janet King, Devil’s Dust), who is also Script Producer.

Secret City airs Sunday nights at 8.30pm from June 5 on Foxtel’s showcase channel.
