Resident Evil: Retribution has released a handy new trailer in which Milla Jovovich’s voiceover narrates a whistlestop tour of the first four movies, bringing the viewer up to speed with Alice’s journey so far.
Beginning with her origins as an Umbrella employee up to the perilous situation she finds herself in in the new film, this latest trailer serves as a welcome refresher for those who haven’t kept up with the four preceding films, trimming things down to the very barest of plot points.
Given that some characters appear to have been brought back from the dead for round five, there will likely still be plenty to confuse franchise newbies, but for those who can’t face sitting through four films of stylised nonsense, the latest trailer does its job very nicely indeed.

So basically, badass action girl takes on shadowy corporation to preserve earth’s future… with zombies. That’s it in a nutshell. In all seriousness, the new trailer pretty much condenses the franchise perfectly – its always been more about catsuits and splatter than it has about plot.
Directed by Paul W.S. Anderson and co-starring Michelle Rodriguez, Sienna Guillory and Kevin Durand, Resident Evil: Retribution opens in the UK on 28 September 2012.
