Think Global, Kill Local With 'Re5ident Evil: Retribution' Teaser Poster and Promo Art

A decade after Milla Jovovich first starting shooting guns and kicking asses as Alice in the videogame adaption Resident Evil, here we are in 2012 and a fifth installment in the franchise is going to continue in that rich tradition of gun-shooting and ass-kicking with Re5ident Evil: Retribution.  Almost two weeks ago, Screen Gems released the very first teaser trailer, which featured Alice standing atop the White House.  Today, the studio has dropped the first teaser poster and a bit of promotional artwork.

Just as the teaser trailer sold the global scale of Retribution, the poster makes that same statement by smooshing together a bunch of recognizable global cities into one geographically improbable location, with the Umbrella Corporation logo in the water.  The promo art does the same to a much more limited extent, choosing instead to focus on Jovovich firing guns like crazy.

Both of the images below are courtesy of Collider, where they debuted today.

Paul W.S. Anderson, who wrote and directed Resident Evil, sat out two installments, Resident Evil: Apocalypse and Resident Evil: Extinction.  He returned for 2010's Resident Evil: Afterlife, the first entry in the franchise to be filmed in 3D.  After that sequel's success, you better believe that Retribution is also in three dimensions, meaning if you want to see it properly, you're going to need some Rogue 3D Eyewear.

Jovovich is the face of the series, but Retribution will bring in characters both new and familiar, played by actors including Sienna Guillory, Michelle Rodriguez, Li Bingbing, Oded Fehr, Keven Durand, and Colin Salmon, who appeared in the first film and also showed up on The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret.

Re5ident Evil: Retribution arrives in theaters on September 14th.
