Posts Tagged ‘Resident Evil: Afterlife’

The Resident Evil movies have always been a bit of a guilty pleasure, they are far from great but they are always entertaining. September this year will see the fifth movie in the franchise, ten years after the original. After a poor first sequel Resident Evil: Apocalypse (2004) (easily the weakest movie in the series) I probably wouldn’t have bothered with the third film Resident Evil: Extinction (2007) but then this happened:

The brilliantly constructed teaser trailer really caught my attention. As the impossibly cheesy advert for Las Vegas begins you think its an advert and not a movie trailer, then as the glitch appears in the screen and the camera pulls back we see sin city in ruins with an nice little nod to Planet of the Apes (1968). The movie itself was a great improvement on Apocalypse but didn’t completely live up to the great trailer. The trailers for Resident Evil: Afterlife were more conventional but still good, the film itself turned out surprisingly good and the best of the sequels. But now they have done it again with this teaser for Resident Evil: Retribution:

Looking like a advert for Sony or some other gadget manufacturer with a voiceover from Professor X/Captain Picard (Patrick Stewart) and Baba O’Riley by The Who playing in the background. We actually get less than a minute of movie footage but there is lots going on, are they Dragons? The one notable thing we see is Michelle Rodriguez whose character Rain Ocampo was killed in the first movie.

Like the other guilty pleaser franchise, Underworld, I am actually looking forward to this.
