Screen Gems released a teaser trailer for Resident Evil: The Final Chapter in anticipation of their official panel on October 7, 2016 at NYCC. Like the title implies, this is supposedly the final film in what is the longest running and, arguably, the most successful video game to film adaptation franchise in existence.
Nothing new is revealed in the teaser, but we get further confirmation that this film will be the most epic finale to the series. Considering the reduction in the film’s budget, in comparison to other films in the franchise, the teaser further confirms that Screen Gems has upted their ante with this conclusive film.
The synopsis for the final film is below:
Picking up immediately after the events in Resident Evil: Retribution, humanity is on its last legs in Washington D.C. As the only survivor of what was meant to be humanity’s final stand against the undead hordes, Alice must return to where the nightmare began – Raccoon City, where the Umbrella Corporation is gathering its forces for a final strike against the only remaining survivors of the apocalypse. In a race against time Alice will join forces with old friends, and an unlikely ally, in an action packed battle with undead hordes and new mutant monsters. Between regaining her superhuman abilities at Wesker’s hand and Umbrella’s impending attack, this will be Alice’s most difficult adventure as she fights to save humanity, which is on the brink of oblivion.
