New Resident Evil: The Final Chapter Movie Trailer Has Seriously High Stakes

Sony releases a new international trailer for next year's action movie.


Sony has released a new international trailer for Resident Evil: The Final Chapter. Some of the material was seen in the New York Comic-Con trailer earlier this month, but there are also some new shots.

In particular, we get a closer look at the evil Dr. Alexander Isaacs, who is played by Game of Thrones actor Iain Glen. Albert Wesker (Shawn Roberts) is also seen in the new trailer. Additionally, we learn a little more about the story and its seriously high stakes; the fate of the world will apparently be determined. Check out the trailer below.

The Final Chapter hits theaters on January 27, 2017. Milla Jovovich stars as Alice, alongside Ali Larter as Claire Redfield and Ruby Rose in the role of Abigail. The movie is directed by Paul W.S. Anderson, who made all of the previous Resident Evil movies with Jovovich, his wife.

During a New York Comic-Con panel, Anderson teased that The Final Chapter will be the scariest movie in the entire series, while Jovovich stated that it will have the best, more surprising death sequences. Anderson and Jovovich were also asked if The Final Chapter is indeed the last movie in the series, but neither confirmed outright that it was. However, the movie will tie up loose ends from the previous films, as it brings things "full circle," Jovovich explained.

Anderson's first Resident Evil film was 2002's Resident Evil, which was followed by Resident Evil: Apocalypse in 2004. Resident Evil: Extinction came next, in 2007, while its successor, Resident Evil: Afterlife, debuted in 2010. Resident Evil: Retribution, the latest film in the series, premiered in 2012. According to Box Office Mojo, every movie made more money than the last with the exception of Retribution.

Even if Anderson and Jovovich say goodbye to the franchise after The Final Chapter, there is always the possibility that the series could live on with a different director and cast.

The next Resident Evil video game, Resident Evil 7, is scheduled to come three days before The Final Chapter arrives in theaters, on January 24, 2017 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. New videos for the game were released this week and can be seen here.
