Video: ‘Resident Evil – Afterlife’ trailer

As zombie films go, it would be fair to say that the blood & guts count in the RE films is low to nonexistent. Though certainly worth the time spent watching them, the first film (2002, written and directed by Paul Anderson) was more slick than scary and Apocalypse (2004, w: Paul Anderson, dir: Alexander Witt) was more than a little cheesy. However,  Extinction (2007, w: Paul Anderson, dir: Russell Mulcahy) went quite some way to redeeming the film endeavours and was the largest grossing of the three films, reaping $147,717,833.

Resident Evil – Afterlife is again written and directed by Paul Anderson, but this film has something more to offer than just zombies, ass-kicking and killer scenery. This film will be doing it in 3D. The plot follows Alice (Milla Jovovich) as she attempts to free a group of people trapped in an LA prison that is  surrounded by zombies. Chris Redfield (Wentworth Miller) is one of the potential rescuees. Claire Redfield (Ali Larter) also returns to aid Alice in her fight against the Umbrella Corporation.

From the sneaks, peeks and leaks so far, it looks like it’s going to be awesome, but what remains to be seen in September when it hits cinemas (in the States at least) is whether they’ve produced a great movie or just a great 3D movie. The trailer for the fourth installment was premiered in San Francisco on April 2nd 2010 and looked (albeit here only in 2D) like this:

    I apologise as I am stalking your blog haha… i love all your posts, you’re such a good writer and have a lovely way of putting your opinions across! But I especially love this one and therefore decided to comment on it. You make some valid points here, and I totally agree that we will have to wait and see if it meets the hype, as it’s becoming more frequent that highly hyped films are a massive let down… however, I am still much looking forward to seeing this in 3D when it eventually hits our screens :)

    • Stalk away! ;):- Thanks very much for the compliments too :):- I’m very excited abouit this film coming out, I’m even going to go see it in the cinema (which I never do because i think it’s horrendously overpriced). With the previous three films eing hit&miss, I’m hoping that if this one’s a miss that it being my first modern 3D film that it’ll make up for it :):-
