Director Paul W.S. Anderson, star Milla Jovovich, and the gang behind ‘Resident Evil: Retribution’ have been working hard on the fifth installment of the series. At WonderCon a few months back, the director and star revealed a few things like the return of Rain Ocampo and the inclusion of key video game characters such as Jill Valentine (Sienna Guillory), Ada Wong (Li Bingbing), and Leon Kennedy (Johann Urb), but all has been quiet on the western front since then.
Today, Comic Book Movie has unveiled a whole bunch of promotional material for the film. As the September 14, 2012 release date approaches, I’m sure that we’ll see more of these around in public, but you can have the first look at them right here.
Here’s a synopsis of the film, followed by a few of the posters, banners, and such. For the rest, head over to CBM:
“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, 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.”
