First Trailer for RESIDENT EVIL: THE FINAL CHAPTER

The Resident Evil film franchise has been around for fourteen years now and while it feels like an abundance of sequels have spawned from that 2002 original there have been only four, but as of early next year that will change when Milla Jovovich and her director husband Paul W. S. Anderson who has directed the actress in what will end up being four of the six-film series. At least, I assume this is the last one as it is subtitled The Final Chapter, but being as I haven't seen a single one of these movies I have no idea what this latest entry has in store. Given star Jovovich is turning forty-one this year I have to assume she's hoping to take her career in a fresher, maybe more interesting direction as, given the contained universe of the film, I have to wonder how much more story and territory there is for this character to explore. I know very little about the movies and even less about the games, but I understand they have something to do with an apocalyptic setting and the undead. I don't know that I'll be changing my tune with the Resident Evil movies come this January, but if I have the time it could be fun to play catch-up on the series of films and cap it off with the theatrical experience of the final film in the series-who knows, it all depends on what's going on at the time, but for now I'll stop my rambling and report to you that the story apparently picks up right after the events of the 2012 film, Retribution, as Jovovich's Alice continues her quest to stop the Red Queen from eliminating the few human survivors. To do this, 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. Yeah, I have no idea what any of that means, but Resident Evil: The Final Chapter also stars Ali Larter, Shawn Roberts, Ruby Rose, Eoin Macken, William Levy, Fraser James, Japanese model and personality Rola, and will open on January 27th, 2017.
