The trailer for the new Resident Evil movie was released yesterday, and surprisingly, it doesn't look all that bad.
Let's be honest here, the videogame and movie versions of Resident Evil went their separate ways years ago, and have been kinda doing their own thing every since. Whereas the game evolved from survival-horror to action-horror, but still remained relatively grounded in reality - and note the use of the word relatively - the movies started off as action-horror and just got crazier from there on in.
With this in mind, the fact that the trailer for the Resident Evil: Afterlife shows Milla Jovovich wielding twin katanas in a skin tight catsuit is not exactly a surprise. I must admit though, the trailer does make it look like the movie could be fun, albeit stupid fun, and I find myself much more interested in this one than I was in Resident Evil: Extinction.
Resident Evil: Afterlife was filmed using 'the world's most advanced 3D technology' and is released in theaters on September 10th.
