Resident Evil: Retribution gets an official trailer!

Jan. 19, 2012by: Alejandro Stepenberg

Looks like the world is in some major trouble, if the above is any indication.  For one, there are those giant letters threatening to crush it.  Though those may not even be a problem since all that burning destruction (which somehow can be seen from space) may render giant-Earth-crushing-letters-from-space a moot point. Here's the trailer!

If RESIDENT EVIL: RETRIBUTION is your kind of thing and that trailer got you salivating like zombie chasing someone on crutches, then take some comfort in the fact that the September 14th release date is only about seven months away.

PLOT: "AThe Umbrella Corporationís deadly T-virus continues to ravage the Earth, transforming the global population into legions of the flesh eating Undead. The human raceís 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."

Also, because I can, this picture:

Extra Tidbit: So I just bought and beat (and loved) Resident Evil 4. Would you be interested in a Resident Evil movie more in that vein, more in Milla's vein, or are you just done with the franchise?

FOR THE LOVE OF GOD!

PLEASE! My fellow human beings! Please do not spend a single penny on this movie and send a message to the studio making these RE films that they NEED TO REBOOT! I cant take it anymore! I'll admit I enjoyed the first and barely let the sequel slide but after that I couldnt take it anymore. Alice transformed from a woman trying to survive to a knock off Selene from Underworld. Enough is enough!

This looks like the best one on the franchise and the most expensive one, i didn't know the budget estimate was 90 mil.

I'm not going to defend the films anymore, that time is way past, this is easily one of my favorite franchises with the only slight misstep being Extinction even though i still enjoy the heck out of that one also.

Of course you can't really judge a film from 30 seconds but what did see got me all giddy , this is going to be an epic experience.

I don't know but this

I don't know but this should be the perfect antidote to all the blockbuster fatigue that will be felt after this upcoming spring/summer movie season, i'm kind of looking forward to this film more than some of the other higher profile pictures, yep even B boy, SM and The Avengers.

RE for me was always mid range budget cheese but this latest one seems to have gone into blockbuster territory, can't wait for September.

Dragons and hints of an Umbrella "Mordor" stronghold, that sold me all by itself, i got chills watching that trailer.

At least this will be R. Or does Chuck Norris want to fuck this up as well?

YUM YUM YUM for the pic..

I'm stoked for this film. I look as it as a standalone and not like the games. If you look at is with the games then of course you'll hate it. LOL. But there mindless harmless popcorn fun ;)

It doesnt HAVE to be like the games. Just like Batman Begins didnt have to be just like Tim Burton's version of Batman. If it was just a decent story (with or without Alice) it'd be great to make countless sequels. You're right though, the RE franchise is mindless.

i would love to see the series go in a different direction. been wishing someone would want to helm a a film based on RE:4 since the game came out. Milla holds a special place in my heart though. her RE films have always been fun even if a little light on plot...

I whish I had seen that trailer in a theater not knowing what is it for... Very creative!

But for the movie? The latest had such a weak story - the first 20 minutes was great, but the rest... I don't know. I will see it anyway but maybe on DVD. Depends on others' responses.

I don't like this series...

...but I have friends that do. It's disposable action entertainment. I don't think they're particularly good in that regard either, but whatever.

My only problem with it is the use of the Resident Evil name. I don't think the haters would hate it as much if it didn't associate itself with the game series.

It's kinda crazy that they're up to #5 now.

looks pretty sweet to me!

Everyone knows it, and it's been said before on this website whenever these movies are discussed. There's two camps of people here. One that likes the movies and have played some of the games, or never played the games. There's also the diehard fans of the games that hate these movies because their not really anything like the games. I guess I fall into the former. I've only played a few of the games, and have really dug the movies for what they are. Mindless fun.

Wow

It looks like people actually like these movies... you can thumbs me down too if you'd like but this is still a complete shit franchise. Do you people like Max Payne as well? You should it's of the same quality. It's just really sad that these movies keep being made because they are making money... maybe if people would stop wasting their money we could get a real Resident Evil franchise. As far as I'm concerned this shit has nothing to do with RE.

Pros to this trailer- Daft Punk's "Tron Legacy" score. The chic in the red dress, Mila in leather.

I'm down

Looks like more fun to me. The movies don't reflect the game and that would be my biggest complaint. I've never seen any of the Resident Evil movies in the theater, but the second they hit the redbox I watch them. I'm surprised I would be called a retard by another film lover for having this as a guilty pleasure.

I am a film lover but these movies hurt my happiness that games give me so much I do end up watching these movies after all but you could only understand how annoying it is when they mess up the franchise when you played the games. Play the games buddy and find out why so many of us hate these movies.

WTF?!

Everyone is voting dislike on the people who are saying these movies are shit. Are you guys fucking retarted these movies are shit and it's the reason people like you that want to see these movies so badly that they keep shitting out these movies so you dumbasses will see them. These movies are horrible and ruined the resident evil series.

Why are they still making these things? And Ada? Srsly? i wonder what senseless pretext they come up with to fit in another character from the games they are slapping in the face more so then actually adapting.

I've seen exactly 1 of the resident evil movies. I think it was the third. Now there's a fifth? How do they keep doing this? Where is all the money coming from? Are they that profitable that they can afford to make 5 of these frickin movies?

These movies are trash, and I don't know why they keep making more....oh yeah, it actually has a retarded fan base following that uses lame justifications as to why the movies are good. So many similarities to another crappy franchise that so many girls are into.

30 seconds of the trailer is a Sony advertisement and the rest is random shots of slow-mo or footage that looks like the last one. For a movie about zombies there was 3 seconds of zombie footage. This franchise is desperately in need of a reboot but somehow makes enough money to keep going. Awful.

Let me start by saying I don't dislike this franchise.
But I love the game franchise more, and wonder why not make a more straight up Resident Evil movie based more closely on the actual plot of the games.

The first two films were fairly entertaining, but they have never really captured "Resident Evil" well in this series. I didn't see the last one and I'll probably pass on this one too.
