    It's a series about zombies. I'm surprised by how dead characters didn't come back EARLIER.

    And it looks pretty cool, the fourth was a smaller, more contrived movie, it looks like they want to bring in a full-blown civil war on this movie. Which is awesome.

    I find those movies to be fun actions flicks, it helps that while I like the RE franchise a lot, I never took it much seriously.

    I do think their version of Wesker kicked ass though.

    If any series of movies needed a reboot it's this one. I would make a comment about how the series should die already but with zombies I guess it's never ending.

    The way I see it,

    If these movies stop happening Milla Jovovich would no longer have a career.

    They should just rename these films "Milla Jovovich vs ZoMBiEs! Presented by SONY."

    Man... How does this even tie into the last movie at all?? I loved the way the last movie was done, Wesker, Chris, and hell

    showing up at the very end was a treat. It was like all of this other Resident Evil movie stuff happened alongside the videogames but still kinda loosely fit but now... I dont even know whats goin on.

    These film may have never followed the games, but I think they're pretty entertaining. I'm there.

    I liked the first and fourth movie. They were pretty fun.
    Won't be seeing this in theaters but will catch it sooner or later.

    I highly doubt that. You have to remember, this isn't her main career. She is a model who does acting as secondary. Granted this probably makes her more money. Not to mention, Milla has been trying to stride away from Action movies. Remember when she was gonna call action movies quits after Extinction?

    Either way. I will see it, opening weekend. Judging by how much they are packing into this, and the all-out war they appear to be having, this may finally be the end. I will take that idea with a grain of salt, because like the RE game series, there is a whole lotta milking from the ol cash cow.

    I know she's also a model, it just seems like all she does is Resident Evil this, Resident Evil that, and if she's been trying to get away from action movies then I'm rooting for her. It must suck to constantly get typcasted into action roles, no matter how well the RE films perform she's still not happy since she wants to star in other kinds of films. I know she's been in other action/suspense films than RE, but they've mostly been duds, save for the Fifth Element which was pretty interesting and different.

    Eh, I just started watching these, and they keep my attention. I'll catch it on Blu-ray.

    This one looks kinda awesome and it looks like it will have tons of epic action sequences. And this coming from a guy that didn't like the first three and thought the fourth one was ok.

    For the retuning dead stars, I think they'll be clones, the special forces woman from the second movie looked to have on the same type of dress Alice did when the third movie began. If they're not clones, then can't explain their presence, maybe a flashback, since it did show Alice with a child. Also, I can see Wesker coming back for this one(end of afterlife before they revealed Luthor aka the "B-ball dude" was still alive and in the sewers they showed something attached to a parachute hit the water).

    The Tron Legacy music did not work that well with this particular trailer. Other than that, I think it looks entertaining.

    Trailer probably could have benefited by using something from The Glitch Mob.
    Using anything from TRON:Legacy for anything other than TRON seems like it won't work. That music was tailored for Tron. Here, it just does not fit at all.

    I'm a big fan of Milla Jovovich. Also I love zombies and enjoy the re flicks for what they are. This looks interesting.
