Milla Jovovich Teases First ‘Resident Evil: The Final Chapter’ Trailer
Some day, we’re going to look back at the career of Milla Jovovich and realize she was one of our more underappreciated action stars. While we spend our time arguing with Twitter eggs about representation in movies like Suicide Squad and Ghostbusters, Jovovich and her husband-director Paul W.S. Anderson have just been over in their own little corner of Hollywood, churning out modestly budgeted pulp action movies with a strong female lead. The upcoming Resident Evil release will be the sixth film in the franchise. Six!
So yes, put me down for a final Resident Evil movie, and an eventual Resident Evil reboot, and everything else that comes with it. And there’s good news for those fans who agree with me: on Friday, Jovovich shared the first teaser for the upcoming Resident Evil: The Final Chapter on Twitter.
With five other movies to keep track of, it might be hard to remember who has superpowers and who are clones at this point, but never you mind about that. All you need to know is that Jovovich will fight monsters in slow motion. And, I suppose, whatever information you can glean from the official plot synopsis for Resident Evil: The Final Chapter:
Picking up immediately after the events in Resident Evil: Retribution, humanity is on its last legs in Washington D.C. As the only survivor of what was meant to be humanity’s final stand against the undead hordes, Alice must return to where the nightmare began — Raccoon City, where the Umbrella Corporation is gathering its forces for a final strike against the only remaining survivors of the apocalypse. In a race against time Alice will join forces with old friends, and an unlikely ally, in an action packed battle with undead hordes and new mutant monsters. Between regaining her superhuman abilities at Wesker’s hand and Umbrella’s impending attack, this will be Alice’s most difficult adventure as she fights to save humanity, which is on the brink of oblivion.
Resident Evil: The Final Chapter also stars Ruby Rose, Ali Larter, and Iain Glen. The movie will hit theaters on January 27, 2017.
