‘Resident Evil: Retribution’ will be released next month so it’s no surprise that the TV spots are now rolling out. Unlike other movie commercials, these spots are short. 18 seconds short. Just enough time to know that MIlla Jovovich’s name is Alice and that there will be a lot of action. Looking for something longer? Then you can watch the full trailer that was released last month.
Here is the synopsis followed by the first of what undoubtedly will be the beginning of a barrage of TV spots for the film:
The wildly successful film franchise adaptation that has grossed nearly $700 million worldwide to the popular video game series, “Resident Evil,” returns in its highly anticipated fifth installment, “Re5ident Evil: Retribution” in state-of-the art 3D.
The Umbrella Corporation’s deadly T-virus continues to ravage the Earth, transforming the global population into legions of the flesh eating Undead. The human race’s last and only hope, Alice (Milla Jovovich), awakens in the heart of Umbrella’s most clandestine operations facility and unveils more of her mysterious past as she delves further into the complex. Without a safe haven, Alice continues to hunt those responsible for the outbreak; a chase that takes her from Tokyo to New York, Washington, D.C. and Moscow, culminating in a mind-blowing revelation that will force her to rethink everything that she once thought to be true. Aided by newfound allies and familiar friends, Alice must fight to survive long enough to escape a hostile world on the brink of oblivion. The countdown has begun.
