Resident Evil: Afterlife 3D Trailer [HD]

One more thing I am excited to see in September. The franchise may have gotten off task somewhere, but I love horror movies and I want to see what Alice is up to now.

I'm more of a Claire fan myself.
My first resident evil game was the second, followed by code veronica. Before backtracking to the ones with jill and the rest.
I always had a soft spot for Claire <3 She was so kickass.

Still no Leon though.  *mutters*  In my opinion, he's the better of the two main male protagonists.  Of course, that could be because I started out with Resident Evil 2.  Is there any particular reason why they won't bring him into the film series?

Ugh, they're getting worse.

Oh God.  They're actually getting worse.

I remember hearing rumours that the 4th one was going to be a re-boot?  What happened?

Why is Alice still in them?  Although it is nice to see more familiar characters, but will they be done justice?

As soon as Alice was re-introduced in the second film after about fifteen minutes, Jill was pushed so far in to the background, you'd forget she was even in the film.

When I saw the first movie, I thought "Nice work screwing up a great story". But then, I watched it again and took it with a grain of salt and you know what? I liked it. It's not great, but it's good. So I watched the following movies and enjoyed them too. However, I was never hyped about any of the movies at all. I mean, I could have done without them too. Like I didn't care to watch the last one until long after its release.

To comment on the favorite character thing, Chris has always been my #1 character... until Resident Evil 5. In Resident Evil 5, I simply loved Albert Wesker. Despite certain cliché traits and moments of the character, he was a quality nemesis and mastermind in his own right. Although I'm partly saddened that we're not likely to see him again in the future games, dying is the peak of a villain's career and mostly what makes him/her great. The only villain who's great without dying is Doomsday in Superman -and even he can get boring sometimes.

So anyway, I hope this movie will be as great as it looks to me. When I saw Albert Wesker in the trailer, I had a nerdgasm. :D

I'm not sure how I feel about A Perfect Circle being used for the soundtrack.

Probably feel the same as I did about them being used for the Constantine soundtrack.

Until they put in a shady grinning cockney in a cloak going "Allo, stranger" to the main characters, I'm not watching.

Still, though, nice concept. From the trailer, though, I don't understand why an attack on Umbrella HQ would be sensible. Unless they're holding "teh antidowt" of course. I hope it's not that simple/cheesey.

Been a while since I last saw the movies, but as far as I recall, the point is not saving the world or anything. They are trying to find shelter, to survive. I can think of two logical reasons two attack Umbrella :

1. Their HQ is the safest place on earth. Taking over it would ensure survival, plus they are likely to find the resources and the equipment to secure a perimeter on the surface and thus live outside with the sunshine and all that sh*t, if they feel the need to live outside. Or they could try to use Umbrella's resources to destroy most/all of the bio-weapons and the infected through a tactical approach. In any case, HQ is a place worth risking your life for.

2. Umbrella turned Alice into a test subject, cloned her like a damn mouse and treated her like one too. The others? How about their entire world got destroyed by Umbrella? Considering the fact, as stated above, that Umbrella also holds the only places they can survive, they have every reason to go and shoot the hell out of that HQ.

No?

Yeah exactly - like I said, I don't get any of that from the trailer. Takes a fan like you to explain it to me - trailer fail, IMO.

The bad guy with the sunglasses seems pretty lame, too. Is there some valid excuse for his Matrix-ripoff abilities?

He's a character that's made appearance in pretty much every game, Albert Wesker. Originally an Umbrella 'creation' and operative, he used T-Virus (with the help of William Birkin, if I'm not mistaken) to enhance himself into a bio-weapon in human form. Hence his superhuman abilities.

But to comment on your approach to the whole thing, I'd like to give you an example :

Old Turkish movies are mostly lacking 99% of what logic stands for. They are also so unrealistic, you might as well categorize them all as comedy. One of the actors of that era in Turkish cinema, Cüneyt Arkın, did most of what Neo did about 20-30 years before Matrix. Does that make Neo a rip-off too? ;)

Lol - did Cuneyt also do it whilst wearing predominantly black and sunglasses, dodging bullets using very similar cinematography to Joel Silver, backwards flips in slow motion...no, didn't think so. We both know exactly what I'm talking about.

Anyway, I think this says all I need to know about this movie's originality. "The movie makes money..." onwards, seems that cash is the sole motivation for this installment. Besides that, TvTropes has this somewhat scathing page reserved for the Resi Evil film franchise. And we all know TvTropes is god.

I'll bow out of this thread now before I turn it into a flamewar and leave it to the fans who just want some dumb popcorn entertainment, but I think most people know it's nothing more than that.

C'mon Ramael, I ain't gonna get mad at you because you don't like Resident Evil. Besides, I don't even think the movies are much good at all. They are just dumb time killing popcorn entertainment... I wouldn't even go to the cinema for them, rather wait for torrents of DVD rips.

Sure, I like the series. But beyond Albert Wesker, Resident Evil died at Code : Veronica. It's not even horror anymore, just action. I'm hyped because I like the character and he's in the movie, that's all. Maybe he's not original, maybe he's lame... But I like him as a villain, so sue me! :-)

SPOILERS.



Albert Wesker also died in Resident Evil 5, by being shot by not one, but TWO RPG's...WHILE IN A F*CKING VOLCANO. (And I don't mean standing on some piss-poor piece of land. The f*cker was actually IN THE DAMN LAVA and still alive!)

I've stopped liking Resident Evil games since Code: Veronica X.  The original three were fantastic, really takes me back.  The moment you discover that Wesker was working with Umbrella all along was mind-blowing, and he really should have died in the first one.  Well, he did.  Until they ret-conned it.  Either he was murdered by the Tyrant, or escaped to the self-destruct room and was killed by those Chimera-things.

Code: Veronica X was a transitional game, and when it started to get silly.  The fourth one was a really good game, but it wasn't the kind of Resident Evil I knew.  I wish they went back to Raccoon City, and got rid of these super-human characters.
