It's always hard to believe when a long-running movie franchise like Resident Evil says there is going to be one final film. But that might actually be the case for Resident Evil: The Final Chapter. I hope so because this franchise really needs to end! It's just gotten progressively worse with each movie.
Sony Pictures has released the official plot synopsis for the upcoming movie, and it seemingly confirms the end of Alice's crazy-ass journey through post-apocalyptic hell.
"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."
I'm sure she'll kick zombie ass and save the day...again. Milla Jovovich returns to role of Alice in director Paul W.S. Anderson's film and she will be joined by Ali Larter as Claire Redfield, along with new recruits Ruby Rose, Iain Glen, Shawn Roberts, Eoin Macken, and William Levy.
The movie is set to be released on January 27th, 2017.
