Alice (played by Milla Jovovich) is back to her guns blazin’ zombie killin’ ways in the new clips from next month’s video game movie sequel, Resident Evil: Afterlife.
The setting for the latest Resident Evil flick is Los Angeles; the once thriving metropolis is now a post-apocalyptic wasteland overrun by the flesh-eating undead. It is also a base for the sinister Umbrella Corporation, so it comes as little surprise that Alice and her pal Claire Redfield (Ali Larter) should eventually end up there as well.
Resident Evil: Afterlife was shot in 3D – a quality that has been emphasized repeatedly throughout the film’s marketing campaign. The first trailer (and every subsequent one) contained a preponderance of gimmicky “objects fly at the camera” shots – thankfully, those are largely absent from these new movie clips.
This first scene finds Alice and Claire struggling to land a ramshackle plane atop a skyscraper, where several survivors are waiting. What little acting is on display in this scene seems pretty hokey, but no one that goes to see a Resident Evil movie really cares about that, yes?
Check it out below:
Next we have two action-packed, explosion-friendly clips that feature Alice going up against both a horde of zombies and security guards for the Umbrella Corp – fortunately, the lady warrior gets a little help from herself in the second clip (just watch to find out what that means).
Have a look at both of the new scenes below:
Composer duo Tomandandy were responsible for creating a pounding techno score for the fourth Resident Evil, which they describe as “… an aggressive palette of heavily distorted sounds and complex metric structures… aggressive and distorted on one end and soft and dreamy on the other…”
Tomandandy also developed a new technology – back in the ’90s, that is – that helped lower the cost of music production significantly. It remains to be seen if they have created something of a similarly innovative nature for Resident Evil 4 as well.
Resident Evil: Afterlife arrives in regular, 3D, and IMAX 3D theaters in the U.S. on September 10th, 2010.
