Resident Evil : Retribution

Well , seems Paul W . Anderson will live up to his promise and deliver a 5th installement on his Resident Evil franchise..... in theatres & in 3D.

While the franchise has drifted far from the original videogame material and is often a source of disappointement for the fans , each movie has been profitable so far.

While the project is still in the pre-production stage and most of the stuff is kept under wrap , we now know who will return and who doesn't ( thx to Milla Jojovich's twitter account ).

Returning Cast

Milla Jojovich as Alice : that was a no-brainer really

Sienna Guillory as Jill Valentine :



Oded Fehr as Carlos Oliviera


Shawn Roberts as Albert Wesker


Michelle Rodrigez as Raine Ocampo


Colin Salmon as One


Boris Kodjoe as Luther West



New Character
Li Bingbing as Ada Wong


Kevin Durant as Barry Burton


Johann Urb as Leon S. Kennedy

Not Returning snif!

Ali Larter as Claire Redfield & Wentworth Miller as Chris Redfield


Spencer Locke as K-Mart




Well , i must admit that the returning cast + the 1st appearance of Leon S. Kennedy , Ada Wong & Barry Burton makes for a pretty solid line-up but it does raise some questions as some of the returning characters died in previous installement.

Is it a prequel or a sequel ?
Points for prequel : The return of Rain , One and Carlos would suggest a prequel. That is supported by the appearance of favorite old characters Barry Burton , Ada Wong and Leon S. Kennedy

Points for sequel : The return of Luther West and Jill Valentine. The absence of Claire , Christ and K-Pac who are supposed to be help-up by Umbrella Corporation. The Retribution title which sounds like a follow-up , Outbreak would be a better prequel title imo .

So it's really hard to tell at this point but it's a long way until expected Sept 12th 2012.

Until then , i'll watch Milla's Twit for more info

As a fan of the Resident Evil video games, this series needs to rot in the annals of film history. It truly is an insult to what the original games stood for.

While i admit the movie franchise did not live to my expectations (1>4>2>3) and i also am a big fan of the videogames , i cannot help to but think the next one is gonna be awesome ( like a gambler betting on the next race that will still be a lost but the thrill of expectation is still there )

at 300M$ , Afterlife would be one of the most lucrative movie to "rot in the annals of film history" . Blame Hollywood !

actually don't ... according to IMDB : With a gross of around $300 million worldwide, the film is the highest-grossing Canadian film and highest-grossing entry in the Resident Evil film series.

Blame Canada !! GOD DAMN BACON NATION !!!

^This

Call it fanboyism or whatnot, I just don't understand why these movies don't follow the storyline from the games. Clearly after 5 movies in, this movie series has a fanbase but I consider the franchise to be a huge disappointment and just one big missed opportunity.

Resident Evil: Degeneration was actually pretty good and much better then the live-action movies, that's for sure, need more like that.

Resident Evil is one remake (done properly!) that I'd love to see.

Ok .... on the fear that i might sound like a pro-fanboy ( which i am not ) , i think most really harsh comments come from fans wanting a play-for-play adaptation of the videogame ( which i'd also like but is proven not to work outside of fanbase ). It's like saying i want my girlfriend to be Salma Hayek and if she's not , fuck girls!

The first one was one of the best adaption compared to the "classic" Street Fighter and Super Mario Bros yet the sequels were sub-par (aka wet fireworks )

RE: Degeneration was average ( which basically puts it in line with the 3 movie sequels )

As a fan , i'd like the perfect RE experience ... i just lost all hope and try to enjoy what's available.

I can't even subject myself to the previous one, let alone this one, with just how awful everything is.

Like it matters if Anderson keeps putting in more of the video game characters, Alice will just save them all or take their kills.

an article copied from ScreenRant which i agree upon

Production on the fifth entry in the video game-turned-movie franchise – Resident Evil: Retribution – is underway in Canada, with Paul W.S. Anderson once again handling both writing and directorial duties.

Anderson’s wife and the leading lady of the Resident Evil series, Milla Jovovich, has been keen to keep fans updated on the status of the latest entry in the zombpocalyptic franchise. She previously revealed the title and setting of Alice’s next battle against the diabolical Umbrella Corporation – and spent a chunk of this past weekend dropping additional bits of information about the film.

Jill Valentine (who will be played by Sienna Guillory) looks to become one of the primary antagonists in Retribution. The film will also mark the screen debut of several fan-favorite characters from both the Resident Evil video game and CGI movie universes – in keeping with (according to Jovovich) Anderson’s self-proclaimed plans to incorporate fan-feedback into the storyline of the fifth Resident Evil flick.

New additions to the live-action Resident Evil film franchise include former Raccoon City cop Leon Scott Kennedy – who will reportedly not be played by Jensen Ackles, despite fans’ wishes – as well as S.T.A.R.S. weapons specialist Barry Burton and “Organization” agent Ada Wong. Expect to learn about which actors and actresses will be portraying said characters, in the near future. i already answered that

Jovovich has also either revealed or confirmed the following tidbits of plot information (via her Twitter account):

The plot of Retribution sees K-Mart (Spencer Locke) – along with Claire (Ali Larter) and Chris Redfield (Wentworth Miller) – kidnapped by the Umbrella Corporation.
Shawn Roberts will reprise his role as Albert Wesker from Resident Evil: Afterlife, while Colin Salmon is set to portray James “One” Shade for the first time since the 2002 Resident Evil movie.
Retribution will feature Las Plagas parasites and promises to be the most action-packed of the series yet – seeing how it will also include a highly-complex chase sequence and a showdown between Alice and Jill, among other (hopefully) thrilling set pieces.

The Resident Evil movies have done all right by themselves as far as box office returns go, but fans have generally had mixed feelings about the franchise. Case in point: the first installment was fairly well-received by RE converts, but its conclusion deviated significantly from the video game source material – and set the stage for two sequels (Extinction and Apocalypse) that lacked the cohesive narrative design of the original film. Right on

Afterlife was largely considered an improvement – if still not quite an outright successful zombie action flick – in comparison to its immediate predecessors. That uptick in quality, coupled with higher 3D ticket prices, helped the film bring in nearly $300 million around the globe last year and become the most financially successful installment yet.

Retribution isn’t going to win over anyone who wasn’t already a fan of the Resident Evil series – or convince those who dislike Anderson’s hyper-stylized brand of action filmmaking to change their minds (especially since the film will be shot in 3D, like Afterlife). However, it does look to offer much more of what longtime converts to the series have been wanting: additional beloved characters and a storyline that (to a degree) more closely resembles that in the original games. I hope so

It may have taken five movies to get there – but better late than never, right?

Based on the ending of the last movie, this one should sort of "book-end" the other four. Part of it taking place before the events of the first movie, the rest taking place after the events of thew last one.

Cannot believe that they aren't bringing Ali Larter back into Landlord Insurance she was the hottest!

Although I never like her as a blonde in Final Destination much

I never understand all the hate for this series. But then, I really didn't care for the video games at all. So I wasn't disappointed about the movie not following the video games. I especially can't understand why there's so much hate for RE3. That is truly one of my all-time favorite movies, and definitely the best in the RE series. For me, RE4 wasn't that great- I didn't think it worked well with the 3D, and it seemed more like an action movie than a post-apocalyptic zombie film.

The Resident Evil franchise is the equivalent of making a cartoon series out of Monopoly. Destroy the legacy of a fantastic game franchise by ruining it with a horrific movie franchise.

Well if you want to destroy a memory .. just watch the Super Mario Bros. movie kek.

anyway ... the official teaser is available on IMDB : http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1855325/ (click TRAILER button )

I call it a teaser and not a trailer coz the first 30 sec is basically a Sony ad with that sucky song from CSI:NY but we do get to see Ada and Rain in action ... the rest is speculative.

edit:



niiiice teaser poster

synopsis so far : “Alice 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.”

new pix :

looks like the Dawn of the Dead remake opening with Sarah Polley ( seems like a legit pix but i'm not sure because of Milla's haircut .... either from a past memory or unrelated) so many hack site on this movie.


Alice + Ada


Barry+Luther+ Leon

I'm wondering if this is going to be the last flick in the RE series...?

I've enjoyed the others for the mindless action/entertainment they bring. Though I think the 3rd one was definitely the worst of the series. I will probably wait for this one to hit Blu-Ray and then wait for a boxed set or something to be released with all 5 movies or whatever.

Yeah, the 4th one was pretty bad so you aren't missing much. I also have said this about a million times, but the RE franchise is like Anderson's weird fan fiction of the RE universe where he puts his wife in as a super hero. The game characters usually just end up looking like odd cosplayers or something. The pics posted for the new movie don't show me anything to think the new one will be any different. I usually hate the whole "reboot/reimagining/re-whatever" thing, but if there was ever a series that could benefit from it, I think this is one.

Truer words have never been spoken...

*Starts to whisper* Re-Boot...Re-Boot *Gets a little louder, more join in* Re-BOOT...Re-BOOT *The Crowd is in a complete uproar, stomping, clapping and chanting* RE-BOOT! RE-BOOT! *Well it's official, it seems like the people are demanding a RE-BOOT! This has gotten out of control, people are now getting trampled and foaming at the mouth. Dare I say, it's like a zombie outbreak! Oh my Goodness, someone from the crowd is now carrying Paul W.S. Anderson's head on a stick.* Let's look on the bright side, at least his wife is still hot.

This film was awful...I don't think I will be alone in thinking this way either...it felt like the worst in the series....just a huge stinker...wowzers. No story...lifeless characters...a cool closing moment though...they always try to grab you with the last five minutes and I gotta hand it to them, that cliffhanger ending is a cool premise, but I wonder if we will get a sixth one with this one being as bad as it is. I hope so...but honestly, I had no fun with this one and I loved Afterlife and Extinction!

So dissapointed...

I had looked forward to RE4 in 2010, because RE3 ended with a huge cliffhanger. RE4 was worth it and I also thought that should have been it. Full closure was there at the end, except for a tacked-on cliffhanger. Went into RE5 with less excitement. It had better be worth it. And it is. So, sue me, I enjoyed it. It plays like a video game in the most complimentary fashion. In the aftermath of the last movie, Alice is back in the hands of the Umbrella corporation. She's able to escape and is presented with one challenging level after another. All the characters are. A few deceased characters from the original return in dual roles as their revived zombie selves and alternate simulations in a program. The movie is all over the place, in a good way, and has a lot to offer. Was happy to see Paul W.S. Anderson back directing again. If only he was there for RE2. The 3D was good, but not spectacular.

Clearly, I may have been wrong about RE4 ending the series. Even if they wipe out the Umbrella corporation, what are they going to do about the millions of billions of zombies on Earth? Do they intend take earth back? Find a cure? Or survive until the zombies overrun them? Time will tell.

RE - *** out of 4
RE2 - **
RE3 - ***
RE4 - ***
RE5 - ***
