Resident Evil: Retribution - First Look: Zombie of the Week

Posted by Grey Friday, January 20, 2012

Have your first look at Resident Evil: Retribution, the fifth installment in the very much undead zombie action film franchise, with the release of its first images and trailer.

Due to its tested-and-proven box-office drawing capability, Resident Evil: Retribution, the fifth installment in the very much undead zombie action film franchise that is based on the wildly popular survival horror game series from Capcom, was originally planned to be shot back-to-back with its as-yet-unnamed follow-up (why yes, Screen Gems was that confident). For some reasons (most probably, director Paul W. S. Anderson's busy schedule for making more crappy movies like The Three Musketeers). the idea did not materialized and here we are, months ahead of a September release for the latest chapter in the surprisingly enduring film series. Incidentally, the past week also marked the release of the film's first trailer, so without further ado, hit the jump to check out the star-studded zombiefest (head over to Yahoo! to watch it in HD).

Well, apart from looking like an outright advertisement for Sony products, the trailer provided us a good look at why the film has been called as Resident Evil: All-Star by long-time fans of the series. In summary, numerous characters from the film series would be making their return in the upcoming film, no matter if they were alive or not the last time you saw them. From Sienna Guillory's Jill Valentine, Oded Fehr's Carlos Olivera, to even Michelle Rodriguez's Rain Ocampo, you will get to see them along with popular new characters from the game series like Li Bingbing's Ada Wong. Kevin Durand's Barry Burton, and Johann Urb as the most-requested character, Leon S. Kennedy.

That said, despite the "All-Star" moniker, Ali Larter's Claire Redfield, Wentworth Miller's Chris Redfield and Spencer Locke's K-Mart (all three who appeared in the previous installment) will not be returning in the latest film.

Here are a couple of the first images unveiled at the film's official Facebook page.

And here’s the official synopsis for the film:

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, “Re5ident 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 (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.
