Thanks to CinemaCon 2016 TONS of new movie updates are flooding the web. One small tid bit is an update for the “last” entry in Paul W.S. Anderson‘s Resident Evil series. I am a BIG fan of this series even though I know it’s nothing more than campy schlock. I find them very entertaining and being a fan boy of the game series is a big part of that I’m sure. Although the film franchise has very little to do with the actual games besides a few characters and creatures.
The latest and final entry in Alice’s journey to taking down the evil Umbrella Corp is called Resident Evil: The Final Chapter. Now we hear “Final” entry talk from studios all the time but we all know if this baby makes a shit ton of money there will be more to come.
However this is touted as Milla Jovovich‘s “Alice” last adventure. And as much as it pains me to see her go I think it’s high time for a reboot. I want a movie more reminiscent of the first few games scary survival horror atmosphere. Less action and more screams!
But I digress… Read the coverage from Latino Review below!
“A few cast members will return in this final installment, including Milla Jovovich (Alice), Ali Larter (Claire Redfield) and Shawn Roberts (Albert Wesker). New faces will include Ruby Rose as Abigail and William Levy as Christian. First footage was shown at the Sony Presentation at CinemaCon 2016 in Las Vegas. The following details may be considered as SPOILER ALERT until it releases the first trailer. The events will take place immediately after the events of RESIDENT EVIL: RETRIBUTION. Alice takes a crew back to where everything started—Raccoon City. A voiceover says that this will be her final story. The footage has quick glimpses of zombies, monsters, explosions and gunfire. It also has new costume looks for Alice, Claire Redfield and Albert Wesker. The important plot detail revealed was an airborne virus may reverse or end the whole zombie apocalypse.

Seems pretty interesting right!? I’m curious about just what that “New” virus will contain. And I’m ALWAYS down for sick new costumes;) Hopefully we will be getting more updates in the coming months.
Resident Evil: The Final Chapter will be released on 1/27/2017.
Here are a few cute cast pics from the set!
