The first trailer for the new Resident Evil movie — Resident Evil: Afterlife, which stars Milla Jovovich (pictured), Ali Larter, and Wentworth Miller — has turned up online. The clip’s arrival follows its premiere at Wondercon yesterday where director Paul W.S. Anderson recalled how he decided to make the fourth film in 3D after James Cameron showed him footage from Avatar a year ago. Indeed, the Afterlife clip itself boasts that the film was, “Filmed with the James Cameron/Vincent Pace Fusion Camera System.” Snappy!

Anderson also revealed at Wondercon that Afterlife is the priciest entry in the viral-zombie series to date, and certainly the trailer contains some epic-looking elements. Then again, I’ve always had a soft spot for the franchise, whose latest entry is set to hit screens Sept. 10.

What about you? Are you a fan of the Resident Evil movies? The new trailer? Or do you think the franchise is just, well, evil?
