Resident Evil: Retribution, the upcoming newest installment (its 5th) from the Resident Evil franchise, based on the video game series and one of the first supernatural films to showcase the outbreak and ultimate terror of zombies, had its panel today at the 2012 San Diego Comic-Con. Comprised of the film’s star Milla Jojovich and supporting cast Michelle Rodriguez, Oded Fehr, Boris Kodjoe, Mika Nakashima (a pop star in Japan who needed a translator to answer her questions), and writer/director and husband of Jojovich, Paul W.S. Anderson, the panel also showcased never before seen film footage from the production in 3D that the large audience mainly ate up (no pun intended).
Starting with the said footage, which was a new trailer and introduced by the moderator of the panel, local Los Angeles DJ Ralph Garman and Anderson, who mentioned he wanted to make the first truly post apocalyptic film, which spans the globe in terms of locations, stretching in areas as wide as Tokyo to Times Square, Anderson also spoke of the depth of Jojovich’s character Alice, and the fact that he wanted to make this production with the most balls-out, intense action yet in the franchise.
One of the most common complaints about the movie industry is that the majority of the films getting released contain not a shred of originality and feel more like assembly line products than anything approaching entertainment that a person with an I.Q. larger than double digits can enjoy without feeling the need to injure the nearest house pet. Every year Hollywood talent agencies compile a “Blacklist” of the best screenplays making the rounds at studios and not getting made, and on occasion some of those scripts manage to make it to the big screen. Entire books have been written about great scripts that sat on the shelf for years for various reasons that defy all manner of logical thought.
Yet despite all this it is still possible for a movie about a killer car to be made, and for that movie to be called Super Hybrid. And because it is possible, it has happened; a movie called Super Hybrid has been made.
You can watch the trailer and several clips from the film below this article.
