Yesterday, we gave you a first peak at some screens from Resident Evil: Afterlife, the fourth film in the series which comes to theaters in 3D on September 10th. Today, we’ve gotten our hands on the first trailer for the movie and it has us a little worried. It has been an ongoing debate about the benefits of 3D in movies coming back as the big film trend. Some movies have used it in ways that it has provided added value to an already good flick while others have only had 3D effects to try and help cover a weak central story.
From the look of the trailer below, it looks like the main push of Resident Evil: Afterlife will be its 3D effects. Instead of focusing on the story or successes of the past three films, the trailer makes sure to name drop the use of James Cameron and Vincent Pace’s Fusion Camera System which was used in shooting Avatar. From the looks of the trailer, much of the movie is going to emphasize these stereotypical 3D effects of objects flying towards the screen at the audience.
While it obviously remains to be seen whether Resident Evil: Afterlife will be able to stand on its own or if it is dependent on its visual effects to get by. Take a peek after the jump and let us know what you think about it and make sure to stick right here for more on Resident Evil: Afterlife as it becomes available.
