Okay, look. I know the Resident Evil movies aren't great. Nobody's going to win an Oscar for anything in them. Okay, maybe make-up or something, but you know what I mean. But damned if they aren't totally fun popcorn movies. And with the fifth in the series landing in theaters on September 14, Sony released a new trailer to whet your appetites.
I remember watching the first one and being all, "Alice? There's no Alice in the games! To hell with her." (Although props to Capcom for not pulling a Street Fighter and trying to make Resident Evil: The Movie: The Game) But then Milla Jovovich was all kinds of ass-kicking awesome and I fell in love. She's one of the few women I'd give it a go for, if you know what I mean! (Oddly, Angelina Jolie is the other, but I swear there's no weird videogame heroine thing going on...) The trailer has me super excited for Resident Evil: Retribution, especially since Ada Wong is all over it, and wearing her ridiculously impractical red evening gown! Also, there's a quick shot of Leon Kennedy, if you're watching closely. Plus, it'll be fun to see all the old favorites from past entries in the series as they warp and twist poor Alice's mind. (I also enjoy how the opening of the trailer totally references the Dawn of the Dead remake) And it's one of the few movies that I will make a point of seeing in 3D, because it was actually shot in 3D properly, and the 3D wasn't added after the fact like in other movies we could mention.
So I'm a fan of the Resident Evil movies. Don't judge me!
