Milla Jovovich and Michelle Rodriguez in the new trailer for Resident Evil: Retribution
Another installment in the RESIDENT EVIL franchise is coming out this September and today a new trailer has been released. I have to admit that this was one of those franchises that baffled me. I never understood why the films were so wildly popular until recently when I sat down for a RESIDENT EVIL marathon. Now I’m a Milla Jovovich fan and am also awaiting the next film this fall. I won’t be one of the many going to the theater, but I’ll definitely catch it on Blu-ray and I’ll probably be keeping my fingers crossed that there will be yet another follow-up because it really is a fun set of films.
RESIDENT EVIL: RETRIBUTION finds Alice (Milla Jovovich) facing off against the Umbrella Corporation yet again. This time, however, Umbrella seems to have manipulated the virus that turned everyone into zombies so that the undead are controllable, which allows the filmmakers to bring back some older characters from the previous films. There will surely be many explosions, zombie attacks and of course Milla Jovovich kicking some serious rear end in her surprisingly tight outfit (seriously, I don’t know how she moves in it). It’ll be interesting to see how much longer they will make the RESIDENT EVIL films but I suppose that as long as there’s an audience they might as well move forward indefinitely, especially if they do it in 3D because these films are really exciting to watch in that format.
RESIDENT EVIL: RETRIBUTION stars: Milla Jovovich, Michelle Rodriguez, Sienna Guillory, Kevin Durand, Oded Fehr, Bingbing Li, Johann Urb and Shawn Roberts. It is directed by Paul W.S. Anderson and hits theaters on September 14, 2012.
