I was a big fan of the first Resident Evil film back in 2002 despite it not quite living up to the material it’s based on, and as cheesy as it’s follow up ‘Apocalypse’(2004) was I still fairly enjoy the hell out of it. That being said however, I was not a really big fan of its third entry in the series ‘Extinction’ (2007), but it somehow managed to redeem itself with the third sequel ‘Afterlife’ (2010) now barely two years later and we’ve already got another installment on its way with RESIDENT EVIL: RETRIBUTION!
If you haven’t seen it already earlier in the week then the first official stills of fifth entry in the Resident Evil franchise has been released Via Twitter Here and Here

Extra Tidbit: Wow! Talk about a reunion of a few familiar faces making their epic return in the franchise. It’s a shame Ali Larter and Wentworth Miller won’t be returning as Claire and Chris Redfield.
