There are two levels to this serpentine site, which is clearly aimed at fans of the popular videogame series on which the movie is based. The homepage has all the usual stuff — cast and crew bios, trailer, etc. — but wait long enough and the holographic Red Queen will appear, beckoning you ”to uncover the secrets of the Umbrella Corporation.” Use her to access secret areas like The Hive, an underground laboratory where scientists become the specimens, and a video-clip library that documents research into what Milla Jovovich (right) looks like in the bathtub.
