Milla Jovovich returns next month in a role we all know and love her for, taking the lead once more as Alice in Resident Evil: Retribution, the fifth instalment of the incredibly successful action/horror franchise.

We caught two great TV spots for the film last week, and now a new Australian poster has debuted online, with Jovovich naturally front and centre.

“The Umbrella Corporation’s deadly T-virus continues to ravage the Earth, transforming the global population into legions of the flesh eating Undead. The human race’s last and only hope, Alice, awakens in the heart of Umbrella’s most clandestine operations facility and unveils more of her mysterious past as she delves further into the complex. Without a safe haven, Alice continues to hunt those responsible for the outbreak; a chase that takes her from Tokyo to New York, Washington, D.C. and Moscow, culminating in a mind-blowing revelation that will force her to rethink everything that she once thought to be true. Aided by newfound allies and familiar friends, Alice must fight to survive long enough to escape a hostile world on the brink of oblivion. The countdown has begun.”

Starring alongside Jovovich will be an excellent cast, headed up by Sienna Guillory, Johann Urb, Boris Kodjoe, Bingbing Li, and a brilliant surprise return from Michelle Rodriguez, who starred (and seemingly died) in 2002’s first Resident Evil.

Paul W.S. Anderson is behind the camera once more, directing from his own script, and all we’ve seen from the film so far suggests he’s done another awesome job, and that we’ve got a lot to look forward to next month.

Resident Evil: Retribution will be released in 3D and IMAX 3D on 14th September in the US, followed two weeks later in the UK on 28th September. With only a month or so to go until it hits the big screen, start preparing yourself for what I’m hoping will be one of the best blockbusters of the year. And as usual with this new poster below, you can click to enlarge.
