Resident Evil: Retribution, up until now, was just another fun chapter in this video game-based popcorn movie. (At least for me.) Nothing mega huge, but stuff you can totally expect to just have fun hiding out in the movie theater with and killing some time, getting away from it all.
So the next chapter in the Resident Evil franchise had my attention, but I wasn’t fully engaged.
But catching the first trailer for Resident Evil: Retribution that came out today, has snagged my attention now.
When I first heard way back that Michelle Rodriguez, Sienna Guillory, Oded Fehr and others were returning to the franchise, I quietly wondered how they were going to pull it off. And the first few seconds of the trailer really stumped me… and scared me. That was wayyy too perfect!
But as you see the movie trailer proceed, there would seem to be a perfect explanation for the return of some of the characters! Ha! And it looks to me, like Paul W.S. Anderson may have pulled it off. Maybe.
We’ll have to see how the story goes within the movie itself, but right now, this looks pretty cool. (Biased opinion. Anyone who says otherwise is getting spammed on the site!)

Milla Jovovich reprises her role of uber-ass-kicker Alice and aside from the already aforementioned actors, we’ll also be seeing one of my favorite actors who play bad guys, Kevin Durand, along with Bingbing Li, Boris Kodjoe and others.
I didn’t think it was possible, but just maybe, this franchise found a new direction to go.
Resident Evil Retribution Trailer:
Resident Evil Retribution opens in theaters on September 14, 2012! Yes, in 3D, as you can see from the trailer, everything is going to fly at you. I’m sticking to 2D myself. No one has convinced me to regularly spend 60% more on a 3D ticket yet!
