Resident Evil: Vendetta is a CGI movie that fills the story gaps between Resi 6 and 7

Resident Evil: Vendetta

If you want to be seeing stars (little Resident Evil pun for you there), you can always pop to the cinema and watch the latest Milla Jovovich-starring Resident Evil movie. Thing is, they’re just not very good. Luckily, there’s a CGI Resident Evil movie coming, and it might be marginally better. It’ll at least be faithful to the source material.

Because this movie takes place in the same universe as the games, that means Chris Redfield’s massive biceps are in. So is Leon S. Kennedy’s glorious barnet. As is Rebecca Chambers’… erm. Rebecca Chambers is also in it.

The movie will fill in the plot details following the events of Resident Evil 6, so it’ll hopefully shed some more light on how Resident Evil 7 ties into the series as a whole. If you watch the trailer above, you’ll see that it’s more zombie outbreaks in massive cities and less creeping around houses away from creepy, regenerating old dudes.

Vendetta is the third in a series of Resident Evil films and you’ll be able to watch it in cinema this summer.
