"Resident Evil: Afterlife" - Under My Umbrella

Sneak Peek new photos from Sony's, Toronto-lensed "Resident Evil: Afterlife", starring Milla Jovovich, written/directed by her husband, Paul W.S. Anderson.

Opening September 10, "Resident Evil: Afterlife", is produced by Anderson, Jeremy Bolt, Toronto's Don Carmody, Bernd Eichinger, Samuel Hadida and Robert Kulzer.

Milla Jovovich returns to the role of 'Alice', a former 'Umbrella Corporation' security officer whose exposure to the 'T-Virus' granted her superhuman abilities. Since her escape from 'Raccoon City', she has been hunted by Umbrella, who intends to use her DNA in order to control the virus' mutation. As the film's main protagonist, Alice seeks to settle her score with Umbrella and its elusive chairman, 'Albert Wesker'.

The $60 million budgeted Screen Gems feature, opening in 3D, 2D and IMAX 3D, is the fourth installment of the video game movie adaptation, also starring Ali Larter, Kim Coates, Shawn Roberts, Sergio Peris-Mencheta, Spencer Locke, Boris Kodjoe, Wentworth Miller and Sienna Guillory.

'Chris Redfield', a primary character from the video games will be featured for the first time in the film franchise. Other characters from the games and films who return include 'Claire Redfield', 'Jill Valentine' and Albert Wesker.

"Afeterlife" is also noted for incorporating director James Cameron's '3D Fusion Camera System', recently used for "Avatar".

"...since the events of 'Resident Evil: Extinction', 'Alice' has been roaming the world searching for any remaining survivors. She also comes face to face with her arch-nemesis, 'Albert Wesker'. As she enters the ruined Los Angeles, she stumbles onto a base of 'Umbrella', surrounded by 'zombies'. She then teams up with a group of survivors who had been hiding in Los Angeles since the 'T-virus' outbreak, and helps them to free another group held-up in a prison, among them the brother of 'Claire', 'Chris Redfield'..."
