A new international trailer for Resident Evil: Afterlife has hit the web, just four weeks before the sci-fi/horror sequel makes it way into 2D and 3D theaters around the U.S.

Milla Jovovich stars (for the fourth time) as the lady warrior Alice in the new pic, which was written and directed by her hubby, Paul W.S. Anderson.  Ali Larter of Heroes fame will reprise her role as Claire from Resident Evil: Extinction and will be joined by Prison Break star Wentworth Miller, who will star as Claire’s brother, the iconic Resident Evil hero Chris Redfield.

Resident Evil: Afterlife actually has a plot too, as described below:

In a world ravaged by a virus infection, turning its victims into the Undead, Alice continues on her journey to find survivors and lead them to safety.  Her deadly battle with the Umbrella Corporation reaches new heights, but Alice gets some unexpected help from an old friend.  A new lead that promises a safe haven from the Undead leads them to Los Angeles, but when they arrive the city is overrun by thousands of Undead and Alice and her comrades are about to step into a deadly trap.

You can watch the new (short) international trailer below:

This is a pretty uninspired trailer, all things considered.  It features more of the same 3D gimmickry and mildly-stylish dark visual design on display in the most recent U.S. trailer and Comic-Con preview, which should please those who just can’t get enough of axes flying out at the camera.

The marketing scheme for the fourth Resident Evil flick has been overall pretty flat and might not do proper justice to the final product.  Still, is it really that difficult to make a heavily-armed Milla Jovovich slaughtering monsters in 3D look exciting?

Resident Evil: Afterlife arrives in regular, 3D, and IMAX 3D theaters in the U.S. on September 10th, 2010.
