While watching this new trailer for Resident Evil: Retribution for the first time I switched to another tab in my browser as I genuinely thought I was watching a pre-video advertisement and was waiting it out. Patrick Stewart has done quite a few ad voice-overs so I assumed he’d done another, and he has, but this time it’s a fake Sony ad played before the action and Tron: Legacy soundtrack kick in.
Watch the trailer below:
Here’s the official synopsis:
The Umbrella Corporation’s deadly T-virus continues to ravage the Earth, transforming the global population into legions of the flesh eating Undead. The human race’s last and only hope, Alice (Milla Jovovich), awakens in the heart of Umbrella’s most clandestine operations facility and unveils more of her mysterious past as she delves further into the complex. Without a safe haven, Alice continues to hunt those responsible for the outbreak; a chase that takes her from Tokyo to New York, Washington, D.C. and Moscow, culminating in a mind-blowing revelation that will force her to rethink everything that she once thought to be true. Aided by newfound allies and familiar friends, Alice must fight to survive long enough to escape a hostile world on the brink of oblivion. The countdown has begun.
Resident Evil: Retribution will be released on September 14, and stars Milla Jovovich, Michelle Rodriguez, Sienna Guillory, Kevin Durand, Shawn Roberts, Colin Salmon, Johann Urb, Boris Kodjoe and Li Bingbing.
