POSTERS

Preview: Resident Evil: Retribution (2012)

Synopsis:

Milla Jovovich is back and combating the diseased creatures that plague the world.

  • Poster: B+

Review:

It's a nice design, colorful and busy, but not overzealous and I love the hidden Umbrella Corp logo in the poster.

  • Trailer: B- / C

Review:

I didn't care much for the original film and had no desire to see the others, but this trailer is quite well done. Although the ad that opens the trailer could be for any product, it seems almost impossible that it isn't produced by Umbrella Corp. I know it's not original, but it's clever enough to stand out in the crowd.

This trend of creating trailers that are almost identical to their predecessors is a bit frustrating. I don't honestly care about what I've already seen, why would more of the same with a few extra scenes convince me to go?

Oscar Prospects:

None.
