“We’ve played a long game, you and I… and now it’s over,” taunts Iain’s Glen’s Dr Alexander Isaacs in an acute case of meta-archness. Because, as you may have guessed from the title – Resident Evil: The Final Chapter – this is intended to be the final film in the series, and the series is set on a games franchise. Clever, you see. The official US trailer is due in a short while but the Japanese appear to have jumped the gun, Presumably the US version will the same clips but less pretty-looking text.
Resident Evil: The Final Chapter also stars Milla Jovovich as Alice, Ali Larter (Heroes, Resident Evil: Afterlife) as Claire Redfield, Iain Glen (Game of Thrones, Resident Evil: Extinction) as Dr Alexander Isaacs, Shawn Roberts (Edge of Darkness, Resident Evil: Afterlife) as Albert Wesker, Ruby Rose (Orange Is the New Black) as Abigail, Eoin Macken (Merlin) as Doc, William Levy as Christian, Fraser James (Law & Order: UK) as Michael and Japanese model and TV personality Rola, as Cobalt. The film is set for a UK release on 24 February 2017.
