And zombies.

I write this because I'm convinced that those are the only reasons people are still wasting their time on the Resident Evil franchise. That and some occasionally boffo effects. Because while I'm on record as enjoying the ass off the first film, the rest have been a steady stream of fetid, left-in-the-sun, regurgitated tripe. Which is to say... they're bad.

But goddamn if the motherfuckers don't rake in the money at the theater. Much like that other inexplicably popular female-led horror/action franchise Underworld, audiences pack their asses into the seats regardless of how terrible the films are. The most recent Resident Evil film of course left the door open for a sequel, and I firmly believe that as long as these films beat their budgets by a buck and a quarter, Paul W.S. Anderson will keep cranking 'em out.

So here's the trailer for Resident Evil: Retribution, the fifth (!) entry in the franchise. They're bringing everyone back, of course -- Michelle Rodriguez, Oded Fehr, Sienna Guillory -- pretty much everyone who died in the prior films gets to come back to life. There's zombies and giant zombie monsters and bright lights and slow motion and our beloved Leeloo Multipass dressed in increasingly bizarre, but conveniently skintight outfits (so! many! buckles!).

Enjoy. Or something.
