For a series that places little emphasis on plot, the 'Resident Evil' movies sure have a lot of it. With 'Resident Evil: Retribution' (the fifth film in this never-ending franchise) hitting theaters next month, someone at the marketing department decided that a handy dandy recap of the entire series to date was in order. And they were right. This series has been nothing but a series of left turns into Crazytown and the clip below showcases elegantly how the (comparatively) small first film evolved into something as big and bizarre as the later entries.
Although it's become something of a modern B-movie institution by this point, the 'Resident Evil' film series has never sat particularly well with many fans of the original video games. However, fans have taken solace with Capcom's animated adaptations of the game series, which stick a bit closer to the tone of the source material. The first trailer for 'Resident Evil: Damnation,' the follow-up to 2008's 'Resident Evil: Regeneration,' premiered at Comic Con and is now online for your viewing pleasure.
Will Milla Jovovich finally bring down the evil Umbrella corporation once and for all? Even if she doesn't, it'll be one heck of a rid.
The Screen Gems Comic-Con 2012 'Resident Evil: Retribution' panel brought together some of our favorite stars from Paul W.S. Anderson’s zombie franchise, including Jovovich along with her co-star Michelle Rodriguez, to both preview the latest 'Resident Evil' chapter and reveal some well-sought-after details.
Much like the undead creatures who have been hunting Milla Jovovich for a decade now, the 'Resident Evil' series refuses to die. 'Resident Evil: Retribution,' the fifth entry in the Hot Ladies VS Mutant Horde series, arrives in theaters this September, where, if the past is any indication, it'll gross just enough money to please everyone involved and get part six in the pipeline. The latest banner poster for the film promises more of what this series has always delivered: Jovovich in skin-tight costumes shooting guns across desolate wastelands.
With 'Resident Evil: Retribution' set to hit theaters in September and 'Resident Evil 6' set for release on Xbox and PS3 in October, fans of the franchise have a lot to look forward to. And that includes a sit down dinner at a new 'Resident Evil' themed restaurant. This gives "finger food" a whole new meaning.
Today at 11:00am EST, Milla Jovovich will be participating in a live Q&A with ScreenCrush.com writer Jordan Hoffman leading up to the launch of the new 'Resident Evil: Retribution' trailer. Can't be in New York City to watch the event live? You can watch it right here!
