First Resident Evil: Afterlife Images Emerge!

Published 5 years ago by , Updated April 3rd, 2010 at 1:21 pm,

Last but not least, is the image I used as the header at the start of the article. I wanted to touch on this one specifically, since it shows what I think is the most out of all the ‘first look’ images.

The following still from Resident Evil: Afterlife features the character of Albert Wesker tossing his sunglasses at two of our heroes, siblings Chris and Claire Redfield, played by Wentworth Miller and Ali Larter respectively.

If you’re a fan of the games, you have no doubt played Resident Evil 5, the best selling game of the franchise. The main (and coolest) villain in the game is Wesker and one of his epic fight sequences plays out almost exactly like this with him tossing his shades at Chris Redfield and partner before they enter an awesome battle.

If director Paul W.S. Anderson has done his homework and played some RE5 (obviously he has), we could be seeing some incredible action sequences in Afterlife. I really hope that’s the case. On that note, the giant executioner in that one still is also directly lifted from the games and looks perfect.

I’m pleasantly surprised by these images, especially since when Resident Evil: Afterlife was announced, my report on it stated that instead of their usual story paths, they should instead make a film based on the game Resident Evil 5 and these photos show that at least visually and with the characters, they have some definite similarities.

Albert Wesker is played by Canadian actor Shawn Roberts in this film.

If you’re a Resident Evil fan then stay tuned into Screen Rant as the first official trailer for Resident Evil: Afterlife debuts this Saturday and we’ll definitely have it to share.

After switching release dates (again), Resident Evil: Afterlife hits theaters September 10, 2010.

  1. I would just like to say this first:


    Wentworth Miller is one of my favorite actors, and I'm stoked he was casted into this movie.

  2. I think I might actually be interested in this now. The executioner looks perfect, an exact copy from RE5, and Wesker, Chris, and Claire?! I'm excited.

  5. All I can say is….. **** YEAH!!!!

  6. A big yawn. Jovovich while still attractive is starting to look liek an old lady with a cat head

  7. lol what the hell is that supposed to mean?

  8. I'm still not buying it as a “good” movie but my interest is peaking. I hope they don't try to stuff too much stuff from the videogames into one movie (think Mortal Kombat: Annihilation).

    Other than that, the images are great and they have the costumes down already. I'm hoping for the best.

  9. More interested then i was before seeing these… though what's going to be the deal with Alice's hundreds of clones. Any explanation on those??? I think the series got annoying when alice got mind powers. Not cool.

  10. Most of that looked like from Resident Evil 5. Awesome.

  11. These movies have always been just about being entertaining, and it looks like this one will, too. I'm still waiting for Anderson to do something in the league of Event Horizon again, but, if this movie turns out decent and with well-implemented 3D, that'll do for the time being.

  12. Page 3 is empty ????

    I love the franchise, yet hate that they incorporated such up-to -date story line in to the film.

    But If it is the last I guess it can be easy to rush it, will still see it, hope to god they don't do any dumb 3D crap that everyone does.

  13. Get deleted and am back again. Go ahead and screw up a movie about a craptastic game. RE5 will not even be played by the creator of RE so that says something. Just saying personal opinion that they have screwed everything up so far in the movies this one will be no different. Will Chris punch a boulder to death in the movie? If not I will not see it.

  14. well there was a hairstyle back in the day that teachers used to wear that made their heads look like they had cat ears, in one photo Jovovich seems to be sporting a smaller wetter version of this hairstyle, plus the combo with her eyes makes her IMO look like she has cat head syndrome, but I'd still take her down ;)

  15. I have mentioned this about comic book movies, and it applies to video game movies as well- Hollywood creates and/or excepts scripts/screenplays that do NOT go by the actual storyline to both comics/video games-

    This is yet another good example- RESIDENT EVIL.

    And yet, at the same time, the actual games are not set around one or two but many characters set in story arcs that tend to go backwards. RE3 game took place before and during the events of RE2, and RE zero was set before RE1. Even though RE3 had Jill Valentine, it introduced new characters, and RE zero as well. Alice is but one more character, and that's okay, I just wish they when into the RE1 mansion with Jill, Chris and Barry in the first movie. It WOULD have worked.

    All in all, I AM looking forward to the new movie, which seems to have a MATRIX feel to it.

  16. I mean, 'WENT into the RE1 mansion.'
