Posted January 19th, 2012 at 1:15 pm

The first trailer for Resident Evil: Retribution, the fifth entry in the exceedingly profitable video game-based series, has arrived online. Given this is a Sony Pictures franchise it’s no surprise product placement is included but in this case is done so to an extreme degree. It also stands out that the trailer borrows a strong Daft Punk track from Tron: Legacy. Resident Evil: Retribution is slated to release on September 14th.

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.
