The "Resident Evil" sci-fi film series fifth instalment "Resident Evil: Retribution" kicks off with what appears to be a commercial for some sort of Sony gadget, but the “commercial” quickly switches gears and shows a destroyed planet, with the living undead running rampant with few people to stop them.
But, surprisingly, that apparently isn’t all of the film’s focus. The trailer suggests that Resident Evil: Retribution will have a good many flashbacks for Jovovich’s character that take place just before the incident at Umbrella, giving more backstory for the character. We even get to see a familiar face, with Michelle Rodriguez reprising her role as Rain Ocampo from the first film.
To get you up to speed on the plot of the film before you check out the trailer, see below for a synopsis of Resident Evil: Retribution‘s plot. Otherwise, you can find the first Resident Evil: Retribution at the bottom of the post.
The Umbrella Corporation’s deadly T-virus continues to ravage the Earth, transforming the global population into legions of the flesh eating Undead. The human race’s last and only hope, ALICE (Milla Jovovich), awakens in the heart of Umbrella’s most
clandestine operations facility and unveils more of her mysterious past as she delves further into the complex. Without a safe haven, Alice continues to hunt those responsible for the outbreak; a chase that takes her from Tokyo to New York, Washington, D.C. and Moscow, culminating in a mind-blowing revelation that will force her to rethink everything that she once thought to be true. Aided by newfound allies and familiar friends, Alice must fight to survive long enough to escape a hostile world on the brink of oblivion. The countdown has begun.
