Nearly 16 years ago Resident Evil attempted to break video gaming movie adaptation hoodoo,a curse as we know that’s still not been cracked yet. After 4 sequels Resident Evil is finally giving up the ghost but will this really be the end? Next February it seems Sony Pictures will bring us the last chapter aka Resident Evil:The Final Chapter and you can check out the film’s first UK Teaser Trailer….
Resident Evil franchise always seemed to play head to head with Underworld franchise, I have to admit I had a soft spot for Res Evil, largely thanks to Zombies. Anything with the undead I’ve always been a sucka for , I do like vampire and the delectable Kate Beckinsale in her black all PVC suit certainly got any fanboy’s heart pulsating!
The franchise hasn’t been a critical success however it’s formed a loyal hardcore fanbase (which includes myself)which has kept the flame flying. When it comes to game adaptations Res Evil has more or less kept to the game script compared to other gaming movies who have shifted the goalposts hoping to win more fans. The final will once again follow Alice becoming even stronger bio-weapon, but will she finally bring down the sinister Umbrella Corporation? Will this mean the end for Alice too? If this film takes the absurd over the top action craziness it might be a fitting ending!
Picking up immediately after the events in Resident Evil: Retribution, Alice (Milla Jovovich) is the only survivor of what was meant to be humanity’s final stand against the undead. Now, she must return to where the nightmare began – The Hive in Raccoon City, where the Umbrella Corporation is gathering its forces for a final strike against the only remaining survivors of the apocalypse.
This February, evil comes home and Resident Evil: The Final Chapter arrives in UK&Ireland on 24th February 2017.
