If it's crap ... We'll tell you
Ok, so while I will admit that this first trailer for Paul W.S. Anderson's 'Resident Evil: Retribution' makes the film look a bit more entertaining that I had thought it would be, this trailer is bizarre on a number of levels. First, you get what appears to be a telecommunications company advertisement that bleeds into the actual trailer. Don't get me wrong, this is quite clever, but I foresee a lot of people will miss the first few minutes of the trailer as they try to skip what they think is an unrelated ad. Also, why is 'Resident Evil 5' cribbing the 'Tron: Legacy' soundtrack for its trailer? I'm sure they got permission to do so, but given how indelible to 'Tron: Legacy' that music is, it's frankly distracting to hear in a 'Resident Evil' trailer. Take a look at the trailer below and let us know what you think. Need a bigger 'RE' fix? Check out Hollywood.com's 'Resident Evil 5' set visit and their interview with star Milla Jovovich.
'Resident Evil: Retribution' hits theaters October 21st.
