Screen Gems has released the official synopsis for the next installment of the video game based movie franchise Resident Evil. The fifth movie will be 3D and was originally called Resident Evil: Retribution 3D. If you didn't know it was the next version and fifth in the line of movies, they've tweaked the title to help set you straight. The new title is Re5ident Evil: Retribution
in state-of-the art 3D.
The official synopsis tells us what Alice will be up to this go around:
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.
Yes, you read that right: Re5ident Evil: Retribution. Get it?! Screen Gems has confirmed that this is the title and not a typo, but that either title spelling (Re5ident or Resident) is correct.
The film opens September 14, 2012
