Resident Evil: Retribution (5): Trailer for the increasingly popular action / horror series...

submit to reddit
There’s a theme developing for Michelle Rodriguez; if she can convince James Cameron to get her a part in Avatar 2 &/or 3 then she’ll have a hatrick of “What? But I thought you were dead?!?” roles in the next 3 years. As if her, as yet unexplained return from the grave in Fast 5, and the as yet un-filmed Fast 6, wasn’t enough, now we’re going to get to see her tough as nails character, Rain Ocampo, return for more in Resident Evil 5.

Taking a lead from the Fast & Furious series, the Resident Evil films are starting a reunion theme (Jovovich has expressed a desire for all possible cast members to team up for a 6th Resident Evil film) with 2 of the series other kick ass ladies, Rodriguez & Sienna Guillory’s ‘Jill Valentine’, showing up in their wonderful outfits (the end of the world shall not cause any couture slip ups!) to aid / hinder Mila Jovovich’s pop culture icon of female badassery, Alice!
The end of the world is no exscuse for bad clothes or hair darlin!

Anyone wondering what the fuss is about after Resident Evil made a solid, but not spectacular $102.4m back in 2002 should just look at the table below and see the table below. Resident Evil 5 is a film with a big act to follow and, whilst we surely shouldn’t expect a Fast 5 like jump of over $250m extra, all eyes will be on this to see if the film can take even more money that part 4. Most importantly, can this film finally crack the North American $100m barrier (so far $60m is the best the series could down there.) Director Anderson’s attempt to get a Three Musketeer’s franchise off the ground stalled last year, in large part due to a failure to capture the north American Market, although in truth, the film also didn’t fare as well in a few of its key markets (most surprisingly, given the subject, The UK and France) although the quality of the film has much to do with that. But fear not, whilst we may not (you never know, those crazy Germans may  yet back more Musketeering) be seeing more of Anderson’s crazy airship shenanigans, it is highly likely that Resident Evil 5 will not be the last we see of Jovovich’s Alice. As it gives us a high profile, the most high profile, female action character of the decade, that’s not to be sneezed at.
I told you not to overtake it!

“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 instalment, RESIDENT 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.”

Well here it is. I think, I THINK, the film may have a connection with Sony??? Really this IS a trailer for the movie, not Sony goods. This is my world...
