We may have only just been privy to the first trailer for the last ‘Resident Evil’ movie, but here’s a proper look at our heroine. (Scroll down further to see her latest look).
Having seen the briefest of previews with a ‘Teaser trailer sneak peek’ - which basically gives us the tiniest of glimpses at Milla Jovovich’s returning protagonist Alice on a motorbike - we’ve had our first proper look at her character, thanks to Entertainment Weekly, and she doesn’t look too impressed.
‘Resident Evil: The Final Chapter’ tells us, in no uncertain terms, that this is the last instalment of the popular video game turned movie franchise that’s earned almost a billion dollars in aggregate ticket sales.
Beginning way back in 2002, the ‘Resi’ films have continued for 14 years; each proving profitable and strong enough that they’ve progressed for almost a decade and a half. Directed by Paul W.S. Anderson, this is the fourth he’s helmed (along with the original, ‘Afterlife’, and ’Retribution’), having married the film’s lead actress Jovovich along the way.
As per the brief trailer, the image doesn’t reveal a whole lot - we get the impression Alice is battling to survive in a post-apocalyptic wasteland that’s naturally full of the undead, but with the trailer’s intent to “kill every last one of them,” we get the impression that this movie really will have a final say in the ‘Resident Evil’ series.
In total, they’ve spanned six films, starring Jovovich in each one, as well as the likes of Michelle Rodriguez and Ali Larter across the years.
Check out the first image below:
‘Resident Evil: The Final Chapter’ sees Larter return as Claire Redfield and Shawn Roberts as villain Albert Wesker, as well as newcomer Ruby Rose (’Orange Is The New Black’) as Abigail.
Hopefully we’ll not only get a decent movie, but also some closure to a long and illustrious film franchise when it emerges early next year.
‘Resident Evil: The Final Chapter’ is in UK cinemas from 24 February, 2017.
