Sequels and blockbuster films are making 2012 a powerhouse year. I've got a couple of movies that I've been itching to watch all year but there's one coming up in September (theatrical dates may vary by regions) that I'm really excited about. It's the fifth installment of the horror video game adaptation: Resident Evil: Retribution.
Heated and widely debated by true hardcore fans of the series, Resident Evil (the movie series) could be classified as its own benchmark to the anthology. Ever since the first movie over ten years ago, the film series has taken elements from the game but developed it into a new storyline. Let's just sum it up to say that it's not canon to the actual video game series. Certain diehard fans who absolutely love the games carry a chip on their shoulder and hold a negative bias towards ever watching the film (though, I would take a guess to say they've seen at least one movie... or maybe even all of them).
Don't get me wrong, I love Resident Evil. It's one of my favourite video game series but I know that the movie series is a completely separate product from the games with its own storyline. If you're open to watching a great horror-action film then check out the trailer for the movie below.
