Resident Evil Retribution Trailer, Character Description. Paul W.S. Anderson‘s Resident Evil: Retribution (2012) movie trailer, character description stars Milla Jovovich, Michelle Rodriguez, Sienna Guillory, Kevin Durand, Shawn Roberts, and Oded Fehr. Resident Evil: Retribution‘s plot synopsis: “The wildly successful film franchise adaptation that has grossed nearly $700 million worldwide to the popular video game series, Resident Evil, returns in its highly anticipated fifth installment, RE5IDENT EVIL: RETRIBUTION in state-of-the art 3D. The Umbrella Corporation’s deadly T-virus continues to ravage the Earth, transforming the global population into legions of the flesh eating Undead.
The human race’s last and only hope, Alice (Milla Jovovich), awakens in the heart of Umbrella’s most clandestine operations facility and unveils more of her mysterious past as she delves further into the complex. Without a safe haven, Alice continues to hunt those responsible for the outbreak; a chase that takes her from Tokyo to New York, Washington, D.C. and Moscow, culminating in a mind-blowing revelation that will force her to rethink everything that she once thought to be true. Aided by newfound allies and familiar friends, Alice must fight to survive long enough to escape a hostile world on the brink of oblivion. The countdown has begun.”
I thought the Resident Evil: Retribution teaser trailer was better than this trailer, except for the Sony beginning. This trailer illuminates the cheese in the film. This trailer has a few scenes that indicate that Resident Evil: Retribution will pick up right where the Resident Evil: Afterlife Jill Valentine Scene left off and that Project Alice and Jill Valentine have a fight scene in the snow.
The character descriptions for Resident Evil: Retribution (beware of major spoilers):
Milla Jovovich as Alice
An ex-employee of Umbrella Corporation. After being tested on by Umbrella, she sets out to destroy all of those who started the outbreak. When asked about her character, Jovovich says that “Alice started off as the audience, as this innocent bystander watching what’s going on and then finally understanding what role she had to play in all of it and who she was. And then throughout the series, she kinda started separating from people. You know, first she realized Umbrella was controlling her, so she couldn’t be close to people. Now that she’s human again, and not only human again, but now she’s almost… I mean, this is her life. This is what she loves in a weird, sick way. It’s what she does best. And I think in this one, she has a little bit more of a sense of humor about it and is a little more relaxed with it. It’s not as shocking as it normally is. In a sense, now she’s got her friends, her team, she’s part of a team. She’s a human being again, so she’s connected with the people around her. And she has fun with them. In some strange, twisted way, she gets a kick out of it.
Sienna Guillory as Jill Valentine
The main antagonist of the film. Through the use of a mind-control device, Valentine is working for Umbrella, under the orders to find Alice. After the events of Resident Evil: Apocalypse, Jill has been captured by Umbrella and is under their control through the Scarab Appliance on her chest. Guillory was originally set to appear in Resident Evil: Extinction, but she dropped out due to her commitment to Eragon. She made a cameo appearance in Resident Evil: Afterlife.
Michelle Rodriguez as Rain Ocampo
A pair of clones of Rain Ocampo from the original film. The Umbrella Corporation has cloned Rain, creating a “Good Rain” and a “Bad Rain”. “Bad Rain” will be hunting down Alice, under Jill’s orders. For many years, Anderson has been trying to get Rodriguez back in the Resident Evil films. He says that he that he wanted “to kind of give her an opportunity to play something different.” Rodriguez explains “Bad Rain” as “mechanical, very straight-forward and very matter-of-fact” and “Good Rain” as “awkward and different- someone who is quirky and doesn’t know how to handle a gun and someone who is curious.”
Johann Urb as Leon S. Kennedy
A survivor who teams up with Alice to hunt down Umbrella. Anderson says that the decision to include Leon, Ada, and Barry in the film was “fan-driven”. When describing his character’s story, Urb says “As far as I can tell, I’ve just been fending for myself, taking care of business, and banding with some people. Then, apparently what’s happened is Alice is in a bit of trouble. Wesker needs somebody who, what’s the word… is smart enough and strong enough to go in and save Alice. Leon is the first thought that comes to mind, obviously.
Kevin Durand as Barry Burton
A survivor who teams up with Alice to hunt down Umbrella.
Li Bingbing as Ada Wong
A survivor who is taken captive by Jill as she hunts down Alice. Despite their romance in the video game, Li says that Ada and Leon Kennedy’s relationship will be “subtle” in the film. Li got the role only a few days after her first audition, and prepared for the role by watching Resident Evil: Degeneration. During filming, she wore a $7,500 wig.
Oded Fehr as Carlos Olivera
A pair of clones of Carlos Olivera, who has appeared in Resident Evil: Apocalypse and also Resident Evil: Extinction, where he died in an explosion. After his death, Carlos’ DNA was cloned by Umbrella Corporation, creating a “Good Carlos” and a “Bad Carlos”. There is also set to be a flashback, showing Carlos living in a suburban area with a little girl named Ariana. Fehr says in an interview that “the interesting thing is, I come back as two different guys on this one. There’s a dynamic to the relationship with Milla’s character, and then there’s the other side. He’s working for the Umbrella again.
Boris Kodjoe as Luther West
A survivor who travels across the globe along with Alice, Leon, and Barry. He previously appeared in Resident Evil: Afterlife and is one of the few characters that did not originate from the video games. Kodjoe found out that he’d return for the fifth film after he read the script for Afterlife and found out that his character survives.
Colin Salmon as James “One” Shade
A pair of clones of James Shade, who died in the original film. After his death, his DNA was cloned by Umbrella, creating a “Good James” and a “Bad James”.
Aryana Engineer as Becky
A little girl whom Alice develops a mother-daughter relationship with. Jovovich says that the relationship between Alice and Becky is similar to Ripley and Newt in Aliens. She went on to say the relationship is a way for Alice to hold onto her humanity.
Shawn Roberts as Albert Wesker
Head of the Umbrella Corporation.
Resident Evil: Retribution also stars Boris Kodjoe, Colin Salmon, Bingbing Li, and Johann Urb.
