The first trailer for Resident Evil: Retribution (check out a set video!) has arrived and although we don’t get too much of a glimpse into the fifth installment in the series, it is quite clever. Yes, it begins with an ad for Sony, but the catchphrase in that ad leads into Milla Jovovich’s first lines in the teaser.
Resident Evil: Retribution arrives on screens in September and here’s the synopsis:
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 installment, 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 (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.
