The first trailer for the latest Resident Evil film debuted at WonderCon in San Francisco last night, but if you weren’t there to see it, don’t fret because it has now arrived online as well. The difference is that the WonderCon folks got to see it in all of its 3-D glory, while the rest of us are stuck in the 2-D doldrums… which is fine by me. They certainly don’t want us to forget that it was shot in 3-D though; they even mention in the trailer that it was “Filmed with the James Cameron / Vincent Pace Fusion Camera System”. Yes, filmed by Paul W.S. Anderson using James Cameron’s tech — something tells me that won’t give quite the same end result.
Resident Evil: Afterlife is the fourth movie in the series, and apparently picks up after the events of Resident Evil: Extinction. Unfortunately I’m not quite sure what that means because I think the plot has become complete nonsense at this point. I’ve also lost track of how these movies are connected to the video games either, but Ali Larter (Heroes) will reprise her role as Claire Redfield and Wentworth Miller (Prison Break) will play Chris Redfield (although he’s nowhere to be seen in the trailer). Resident Evil: Afterlife hits theatres on September 10th, 2010; check out the trailer after the jump and prepare to “experience a new dimension of evil”.
