With Sony’s Ghost Rider hitting theaters on Friday, expect new trailers for Resident Evil: Extinction and Grindhouse to be attached.
Gindhouse will make it’s internet premiere on Thursday night on Yahoo! Movies. The Resident Evil teaser is expected to hit the web on Monday at latest.
Resident Evil: Extinction follows the survivors of the Raccoon City catastrophe, as they travel across the Nevada desert, hoping to make it to Alaska. Alice (again, played by Milla Jovovich) joins the caravan and their fight against the evil Umbrella Corp. Ali Larter, Ashanti, Oded Fehr, Spencer Locke, Mike Epps and Iain Glen also star.
Grindhouse is the much anticipated Robert Rodriguez/Quentin Tarantino double feature. An homage to exploitation B-movie thrillers that replicates the grind house theatergoing experience of the 1970’s. Death Proof, directed by Tarantino, follows a psycho named Stuntman Mike (played by Kurt Russell) who stalks and kills beautiful women with his car. In Rodriguez’ Planet Terror, a small-town sheriffs’ department has to deal with an outbreak of murderous, infected people called sickos (aka Zombies). A gun-legged woman named Cherry (played by Rose McGowan) and her martial arts-wielding partner (Freddy Rodriguez) take charge. The two films will be fused together by fake movie trailers by Rob Zombie, Eli Roth, and Edgar Wright.
Grindhouse hits theaters on April 6th 2007. Resident Evil: Extinction hits theaters on September 21st 2007.
