Resident Evil: Retribution Trailer Due Before Underworld: Awakening, Says Milla Jovovich
01.13.12 by Ryan
Earlier this week, Sony Screen Gems released the official synopsis for Resident Evil: Retribution, while also temporarily retitling the sequel to the awkward Re5ident Evil: Retribution before coming to their senses. Still, with a synopsis online, fans are wondering why a trailer is still nowhere to be found. Leave the answer to franchise star Milla Jovovich, who alerted fans on her Twitter that a trailer should arrive next week.
So I jst asked [Retribution writer-director and Jovovich's husband] Paul [W.S. Anderson] and he said 4 SURE the teaser 4 RE:Retribution is coming out on the 18th of jan! I'm sure it will b online. Then on the 20th it comes out in 3D in front of the new Underworld movie! So there you go folks n now I'm over and out, going on vacation with my family 4 a week! Tweet u later! Xo m
Screen Gems is also releasing Underworld: Awakening, so pairing the Retribution trailer with the fourth installment in the Underworld franchise is no surprise. After helping make 2010's Resident Evil: Afterlife the most successful in the franchise, writer-director Anderson is back for Retribution. Collider asked Anderson about the Retribution shoot, and the director emailed a short response about how Retribution stacks up against the rest of the franchise.
Shoot went great. Wrapped on Christmas Eve, but we got it all done. Technically and physically it was the hardest RE shoot so far. Complex VFX and extreme action combined with worldwide locations – Moscow, New York, Washington DC, Toronto and of course Raccoon City. Really trying to push the envelope with this one and make the first truly epic undead movie.
We'll find out how Anderson did when the trailer arrives. Meanwhile, while fans wait for the Retribution trailer, a new IMAX poster for Awakening has been released to prove that the sequel will open in more than just 2-D and 3-D. Check it out below.
