Coming this Tuesday, the first teaser trailer for Resident Evil: The Final Chapter, the sixth installment in the film franchise, will be released. Making sure to get the word out, Screen Gems has released an official still, featuring Alice (played by Milla Jovovich), standing in a godforsaken wasteland, looking worn-down and a little bruised and battered.
“[It’s] almost like an origin story because we’re revealing the truth as to who Alice is,” writer-director Paul W.S. Anderson said to EW, who also report that "fans can expect a full-circle return to Raccoon City and the Hive, where it all began."
Picking up immediately after the events in Resident Evil: Retribution, humanity is on its last legs after Alice is betrayed by Wesker in Washington D.C. As the only survivor of what was meant to be humanity's final stand against the undead hordes, Alice must return to where the nightmare began – Raccoon City, where the Umbrella Corporation is gathering its forces for a final strike against the only remaining survivors of the apocalypse. In a race against time Alice will join forces with old friends, and an unlikely ally, in an action packed battle with undead hordes and new mutant monsters. Between losing her superhuman abilities and Umbrella's impending attack, this will be Alice's most difficult adventure as she fights to save humanity, which is on the brink of oblivion.
Milla Jovovich reprises her starring role as Alice. Other headline cast includes Ali Larter ("Heroes," Resident Evil: Afterlife) as Claire Redfield, Iain Glen ("Game of Thrones," Resident Evil: Extinction) in the role of Dr. Alexander Isaacs, Shawn Roberts (Edge of Darkness, Resident Evil: Afterlife) as Albert Wesker, Australian actress Ruby Rose ("Orange is the New Black"), who has a huge social media presence, as Abigail, Eoin Macken ("The Night Shift") as Doc, Cuban American actor William Levy, one of People en Español's reigning 50 Most Beautiful, as Christian, Fraser James ("Law & Order: UK") as Michael, and Japanese model and TV personality, Rola, as Cobalt.
Resident Evil: The Final Chapter will be distributed in the U.S. by Screen Gems in January 2017.
