“Resident Evil: Extinction”, the third entry in the videogame-to-movie franchise has been flying pretty much under the radar lately, with a September 21st scheduled bow in theaters. It brings back Milla Jovovich, Oded Fehr, but adds “Heroes” star Ali Larter and R&B singer Ashanti. From what I’ve seen of the trailer (below), the filmmakers seem to have all but abandoned the film’s horror elements (zombies, zombies, and more zombies!) in favor of action-adventure “Mad Max” style setting, with the focus seemingly now on the fight against the Umbrella Corporation, the movie’s omnipresent villain. Then again, it’s not like the last two movies were all that horrific to begin with, so…
Years after the Raccoon City disaster, Alice (MILLA JOVOVICH) is on her own knowing that she has become a liability and could endanger those around her is struggling to survive and bring down the Umbrella Corporation lead by the sinister Albert Wesker (JASON O’MARA) and head researcher Dr. Issacs (IAN GLEN). Meanwhile traveling through the Nevada Desert and through the ruins of Las Vegas Carlos Olivera, (ODED FEHR) L.J., (MIKE EPPS) and new survivors K-Mart, (SPENCER LOCKE) Claire Redfield,(ALI LARTER) and Nurse Betty (ASHANTI) must fight to survive extinction against hoards of zombies, killer crows and the most terrifying creatures created as a result of the deadly T-Virus that has killed millions.
