Playing Milla Kicks Zombie Butt in New 'Resident Evil'

Milla Jovovich takes on the evil Umbrella Corporation and kicks more zombie butt in the all-new Resident Evil: Retribution in 3D, and the nubile star says the Resident Evil movies make her feel like the "female warrior" cartoon characters of her youth!

"I grew up on great female warrior cartoons," she tells ET. "[Resident Evil] brings me back to the days when I used to watch She-Ra: Princess of Power and Thundercats and stuff; feel like a superhero."

Resident Evil: Retribution, in theaters September 14, finds Alice (played by Milla) hunting those responsible for the T-virus outbreak (which is transforming the global population into legions of the flesh eating zombies). The chase takes her from Tokyo to New York, Washington, D.C. and Moscow, aided by newfound allies and familiar friends to get to the source of the malevolent Umbrella Corporation's sinister plans for worldwide domination. Michelle Rodriguez, Oded Fehr, Bingbing Li, Colin Salmon and Sienna Guillory also star.

"We've been at it for over a decade now," says Milla about the long-running franchise, crediting the fans for their continued interest. "People love the movies, and we're so grateful that they love the stories and the characters, and it's just so fun to be in this world. … It gives me that inner fantasy of being bigger than life."
