First of all this is not a sequel to that Mila Jovovich franchise that is having an international release. Resident Evil: Damnation is a sequel to the full cgi Resident Evil animation Resident Evil: Degeneration released 4 years ago. It actually received mixed reviews but many definitely thinks it is far much better than the Hollywood live action. If you are not convinced, watch the trailer below.
For now there are no official press release about the plot of the film but it looks like hell breaks loose on a particular European country which is I don't really have the time to find out where. Just like Degeneration, Damnation looks sick and I mean that in a good way. Not really sure if that is Chris Redfield but for now Leon and Ada is the only officially confirmed characters.
By the way, the film will be once again a direct to video release outside Japan while Japanese fans will be enjoying it when it premieres on cinemas on October 27, 2012 in 3D.
If only the live action is this good. The only reason I'm watching those films is Mila. Why don't they just reboot it and scrap the Alice story and follow the game's storyline. I don't really mind if they still get Mila and let her play Jill Valentine herself. She is a good action babe so I still want her on the franchise just in case they want to redo it.
