A new trailer has hit for the fifth (and possibly final) live-action Resident Evil film, Resident Evil: Retribution. Director and producer Paul W.S. Anderson keeps churning them out alongside spousal superhero clone (or is it the original?) Alice, who was clearly absent the day the cool character names were handed out, such as Michelle Rodriguez’s Rain Ocampo or Colin Salmon’s James “One” Shade.
But wait, didn’t they, like, totally die in the first film? Indeed, but they are back like a bad case of crabs. The trailer suggests their return is prompted through a mix of false memories in Alice’s very pretty head, and possibly cloning. Other fan favourites returning are Carlos Oliviera, played by the suave Oded Fehr, Sienna Gilroy as Jill Valentine, Boris Kodjoe as Luther West, and Shawn Roberts as Albert Wesker.
Maing their live action debut are Resident Evil 4 protagonists Leon Kennedy, played by Johann Urb, and the sexy Ada Wong, played by the amazingly named Bingbing Li. However, their addition will most likely make we wish they had had just made a film version of that game instead of continuing the ridiculous, nonsensical storyline from the last four films.
Expect a barrage of bullets, axes, grenades and other assorted weaponry to come flying at your face in 3D when the film is released on September 14th in North America and Canada. The UK and Australia will have to wait anther two and four weeks respectively to get their Resident Evil on.
