Milla Jovovich in First Full Teaser for 'Resident Evil: The Final Chapter'
"We've played a long game, you and I, but now it's over." Screen Gems has debuted the first teaser trailer for the sixth Resident Evil movie, and apparently the final one, as it's called Resident Evil: The Final Chapter. Not only is writer/director Paul W.S. Anderson back to finish the series he started, so is actress Milla Jovovich as Alice, who must return to Raccoon City, where the Umbrella Corporation is gathering its forces for a final strike against the only remaining survivors of the apocalypse. The full cast includes Ruby Rose, Ali Larter, Iain Glen, Shawn Roberts, William Levy, Eoin Macken, Rola and Lee Joon-Gi. This definitely looks like one big all-out, epic grand finale but I've been tired of this series for a long time and it doesn't exactly make me interested again. Plus there's still way too much CGI. Worth a look anyway.
Update! Here's the full US teaser trailer for Resident Evil: The Final Chapter, from IGN's YouTube:
Here's the Japanese teaser for Paul W.S. Anderson's Resident Evil: The Final Chapter, on YouTube:
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. Resident Evil: The Final Chapter is both written & directed by English filmmaker Paul W.S. Anderson, of the original Resident Evil as well as the sequels Afterlife and Retribution, plus Event Horizon, Soldier, AVP: Alien vs Predator, Death Race, The Three Musketeers and Pompeii previously. The Final Chapter opens in theaters on January 27th, 2017 early next year. Who's in?
