Resident Evil: Retribution trailer craps all over itself


6:00 PM on 06.14.2012



I really loved the first Resident Evil movie. It was a self-contained story set within the universe that didn't mess with the main story arc. I even liked Apocalypse, even though they messed a little with the main story. I forgave it though, largely because Nemesis was pretty badass, and the actress that played Jill Valentine was gorgeous.

Then Extinction and Afterlife happened, and it was at that point I stopped considering them Resident Evil movies, and enjoyed them as regular zombie flicks. Now, we have the "final" installment with Resident Evil: Retribution, which looks like a giant mess that's crapping all over the story they created. 

Based on the debut trailer here, it looks like none of the past Resident Evils movies happened, it was all in Alice's head. Characters that you thought died in the first movie are well and alive, the world didn't actually end, and they're trying to bring back spinning hubcaps (2:07). On the plus side, Jill is back in her brainwashed form as seen in Resident Evil 5, and Leon and Ada are finally introduced to the movie franchise. Interestingly, Chris and Claire Redfield are nowhere to be seen in the trailer.

So there you go, another freaking Resident Evil movie. And guess what? It's going to pull in a ton of money. The films have made over $675 million worldwide, with the last movie alone pulling in $296 million alone.

Resident Evil Revelations 2's extra episodes are fun, but non-essential

As you might be aware, Capcom is taking a really weird approach to Resident Evil: Revelations 2. In addition to bringing in an episodic format, they've also hitched two secretive "extra episodes" to the package, exclusive to ...more
