I’ve never really been a fan of the Resident Evil movies. So it came as a huge surprise that I actually enjoyed the The Resident Evil: Extinction teaser trailer. The teaser opens with an incredibly cool constructed visual of the extinction of Las Vegas. Does this mean it’s going to be a good movie? Way-way–Wait a minute. I never said that.

The new film stars Milla Jovovich, Oded Fehr, Mike Epps, Iain Glenn, Ali Larter, and Ashanti. And is it just me or is Milla Jovovich starting to look a little butch? but may-be that’s the point. And why is it that Russell Mulcahy hasn’t directed a descent film since Highlander?
And the official synopsis follows:
Alice, now in hiding in the Nevada desert, once again joins forces with Carlos Olivera and L.J., along with new survivors Claire, K-Mart and Nurse Betty to try to eliminate the deadly virus that threatens to make every human being undead…and to seek justice. Since being captured by the Umbrella Corporation, Alice has been subjected to biogenic experimentation and becomes genetically altered, with super-human strengths, senses and dexterity. These skills, and more, will be needed if anyone is to remain alive.
