If you thought Sony Screen Gems’ Resident Evil franchise was about a hot chick in a slinky dress who discovers sexier fetish wear with every new sequel, you are apparently wrong. The series actually has something to do with an evil corporation and a viral outbreak… if this new featurette is to be believed.
I saw each flick in the theater and I don’t recall any of that. I do remember seeing Alice crawling naked on a floor in part one; some imagined lesbian tension between her and Jill Valentine in part two; Alice in sexy shorts in part three and Alice in latex in 3-D in part four.
I’m guessing director Paul W.S. Anderson pulled a George Lucas and went back to the series to add all this viral outbreak and zombie stuff. Resident Evil: Retribution opens in theaters on Sept. 14.
