It’s been roughly six month since we’ve seen the teaser trailer for Resident Evil: Retribution, and though we’ve seen some sneak peeks here and there ultimately how the film looks has been kept locked up for the time being. Now with a movie revolving around the supernatural on its way out in the form ofAbraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, it’s time for Screen Gems to show what the fifth film in the gaming adaptation franchise has got. In an all-new trailer just released, not only does Milla Jovovich continue to flex her action muscle, but the beginning of the trailer is a drastically different approach that adds plenty of emotion and intrigue into the upcoming sequel.
The wildly successful film franchise adaptation that has grossed nearly $700 million worldwide to the popular video game series, “Resident Evil,” returns in its highly anticipated fifth installment, “Re5ident Evil: Retribution” in state-of-the art 3D.
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, D.C. 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.
Directed by Paul W.S. Anderson and starring Milla Jovovich, Michelle Rodriguez, Sienna Guillory, Johann Urb, Kevin Durand, and more, Retribution will hit theaters September 14th.
