New Resident Evil Afterlife trailer has more Milla and crazy action

Jul. 7, 2010by:

Not gonna lie -- I'm kind of looking forward to RESIDENT EVIL: AFTERLIFE. By now, I have a pretty good idea of what to expect from a movie series that once had Milla Jovovich run down the side of a building and fight a guy with a bazooka on his arm. AFTERLIFE seems like it's going to deliver similar yet superior ridiculousness for my amusement.

The new trailer has hit, and certainly drives home the fact that it was engineered for 3D -- aside from the actual reminders, there are loads of objects being chucked in the general direction of the audience. Plus you can look forward to multiple Millas, more sweaty Ali Larter, some new faces, and plenty of preposterous action.

The movie comes from original director Paul WS Anderson and has Alice (Jovovich) scouring the post-apocalyptic world wrecking zombies and searching for survivors, which leads her to Los Angeles to face the evil Umbrella corporation.

First movie was fun. Second movie sucked. Third movie was so-so. I'll give this one a chance.

Having the chance to hear her and WS speak at Wondercon about the film made me more excited to see it because of their passion for the project. They aren't meant to win oscars or anything like that but simply to entertain, and so far this looks as thought it will.

Yeah, that was a lot of fun. I got up to ask her a question. I was so nervous, lol.

I find that the closer the movies come to the games the better they seem to get and there is NO character in any of the bajillion RE games named Alice. Glad to see Wesker though its about time we see the face of Umbrella.

I do enjoy these movies...

The elements remain the same with a bit of expansion...I like it! This might be the best since the original...I only one I didn't dig was 2. Milla rocks....it's be cool to see her and Angie square off for Queen Action Babe!

Yeah, I know "Prison Break" ended. It was an observation on Wentworth Miller's career arc.

I personally have nothing against Jovovich herself. If anything, she is ambitious, driven and full of life. I don't see anything to be hateful about that. Truth be told, I didn't mind the first movie, but that could have possibly been the fact I knew little of the games. I'm not a huge fan of the series, but I'm not about to question the intelligence of everybody who does.

That being said though, Anderson seems to be all over the place with this universe. First he said he wanted it to take

That being said though, Anderson seems to be all over the place with this universe. First he said he wanted it to take place along an alternative storyline, the next he wanted to stay true to the games, then he branched away from the games again in 'Extinction', now from the looks of things in 'Afterlife', he's basically referencing directly from the games with the inclusion of established characters. I also do not like the character of Alice. In the fanfiction world, she is what we consider a 'Mary Sue', now while some Mary Sues can be well written, Alice is not.

If you ask me, Jovovich could be doing a better action woman role than this and Anderson should stick with the strengths that he exhibited with 'Event Horizon' and to an extent 'Soldier'.

The first film is the best and the couple that follwed were just ok, I like this franchise and will probably be checking out Afterlife mostly because Mila is smokin' hot!

2nd Is the Best...

Am I the only one to think that out of the 3 films so far, the second is far superior to the rather shoddy third and since it's not as serious as the first it's a bit more fun?

Anyways, I am a fan of this ludicrous series, as they are well made, turn brain off entertainment. I am for this one all the way.

Not expecting anything fantastic, but I had fun at the other films in theaters, and I am looking forward to seeing the series wrap up. It's also nice to see Paul Anderson return. He's what made the first film work, I think. Despite what people may say, I think this should be entertaining. And of course, I can't complain at staring at Milla on screen for a couple hours.

hmmm? looks cool but where are the zombies? They didn't show them very much. I seemed like an action flick with zombies thrown in here and there.

I'll take a large popcorn please...

I am indifferent to the movies - I watch them, I enjoy them, I forget about them when I walk out of the theater. I do like the trailer and I do like the fact that they use an APC song to close it off.

Oh crumbs, not another baddie who's built a heavily-fortified underground lair simply so he can lounge around in shiny black leather and shades in an overly-lit white room. Can't these guys ever think of anything else to do with the vast fortunes they've amassed thanks to their villainy?

Probably one of the most brain dead ridiculous movie series bastardizing a great story for the purposes of fetishizing a shrill androgynous cardboard cut out. No thanks.

WHO THE FUCK IS WATCHING THESE MOVIES?! This is hands down one of the worst franchises alive in Hollywood today. The first had it's moments and so did the second.. but the third was an abortion. I can't stand Milla "I cant act for shit just watch me in A Perfect Getaway or that shitty alien abduction movie" Jovovich in this role either.

Oh My God!

I didn't think I could hate this franchise any more fervently until this trailer...yeah, go ahead and give me your bahzillions of thumbs downs, but this franchise is fucking retarded. Jovovich is one of the worst things to happen to chick heroes ever, she's just awful and I don't see the attraction of having sex with a board with a hole in it, which is basically what she amounts to. Where does the love for this series come from? RE video games=awesome. RE movies=ass. Please let this be

Actually, I'm a big fan of the games, and while I agree that the films have mostly sucked (liked the first one), I still enjoyed watching them in the theater.

This is a pretty closed minded statement to make as I (a girl) enjoyed the games but didn't expect the movies to be a carbon copy of the games. I don't shop at hot topic and frankly I think its ok for girls to take an interest in a franchise like this, its not just a boys club anymore

Pathetic

Resident Evil on film was a joke back in 1996 and with the whole series, it still is. It brings a good laugh.

WTF? Really?

How do any of you people actually think this looks entertaining? Terrible script, stupid 3d shit flying at the screen, dumb trailer music. I really don't get it.......These movies are horrible! They ruined what the games set up.

Not attached to the games really. The first flick was alright and honestly I kinda didn't mind the 3rd, but I can't for the life of me imagine HOW this series is still going. Especially in theatres.

Yeah, there were some interesting moments in the series, but overall it's just fucking stupid and that Ukrainian cunt is overacting all the time. I wish these movies were based on the video games instead. THAT would've been awesome.
