Grab your calendars, zombie fans, because Resident Evil: Afterlifeis on the move again.

The fourth installment in the series (based on Capcom's popular game franchise) was originally slated to debut in late September of this year. However, concerns about having the film completed in 3D in that timeframe led to the film being pushed back to January of 2011.

Apparently, that move was much ado about nothing as our colleagues at Shock Till You Drop are now reporting that the title is once again changing release dates. Unlike last time, this new opening window should make fans happy.

According to the site, Resident Evil: Afterlife will now make its theatrical debut on September 10th of this year. No details have been given for why the shift was made, but as Shock points out, opening the film in January would have put it up against Cabin in the Woods (also in 3D), thereby limiting the number of screens the movie could play on.

Whatever the reason, it now appears we'll be seeing Milla Jovovich fight her one woman war against the evil Umbrella Corporation before Halloween as opposed to after New Years.
