‘Resident Evil: Retribution 3D’ Shows a Bleak Vision of the Sony World
Sony Pictures has released the first full-length trailer for Resident Evil: Retribution 3D. The fourth chapter of the series again focuses on pretty girls, guns, monsters, and explosions -- what a formula! The release of the new trailer arrives just after the announcement of Resident Evil 6, the next video game installment from which the movie franchise spawned from. With a very clever way of introducing the new trailer, Sony makes a series of shameless plugs by placing some of their products in a faux commercial for the expanding technology of the world through Sony products before panning to a gritty ALICE (Milla Jovovich) in an apocalyptic version of her reality. The official storyline reveals a world ravaged by a virus infection, turning its victims into the Undead, ALICE, continues on her journey to find survivors and lead them to safety. Her deadly battle with the Umbrella Corporation reaches new heights, but Alice gets some unexpected help from an old friend. A new lead that promises a safe haven from the Undead takes them to Los Angeles, but when they arrive the city is overrun by thousands of Undead - and Alice and her comrades are about to step into a deadly trap. Resident Evil: Retribution 3D, which also stars Michelle Rodriguez and Sienna Guillory, hits theaters on September 14, 2012.
