‘Afterlife’ is top grossing Canadian pic

Film surpasses 'Porky's' global box office take

MONTREAL – “Resident Evil: Afterlife” is the top-grossing Canadian film ever, with a global box office take of $280 million, it was announced Monday.

It has beaten previous title-holder “Porky’s.”

Both pics were produced by Toronto-based filmmaker Don Carmody.

“Resident Evil: Afterlife” is a Canadian-German co-production released in the U.S. by Sony Screen Gems, by Alliance Films in Canada and internationally by Summit Pictures.

Carmody and French producer Samuel Hadida, who co-produced “Resident Evil,” will team up again next year on helmer Michael J. Bassett’s “Silent Hill: Revelation 3D,” the sequel to “Silent Hill,” which will shoot in Toronto.
