The first teaser trailer for the latest installment in the Resident Evil franchise has gone online. Resident Evil: Retribution marks the fifth entry in the popular post-apocalyptic series. This time, Alice (Milla Jovovich) continues her search across the globe for those responsible for the deadly outbreak. Things take a twist, however, when she runs into a few familiar faces.  RE5 was written and directed by Paul W.S. Anderson and it stars Michelle Rodriguez, Sienna Guillory, Kevin Durand, Shawn Roberts, Colin Salmon, Johann Urb, Boris Kodjoe, and Li Bingbing.

Hit the jump to watch the first teaser trailer. Resident Evil: Retribution opens in 3D on September 14th.

Last month I got to visit the set of RE5 and the embargo lifts at noon PST today, so make sure to check back for new interviews with the cast and my set report.  Until then, here’s the first footage from the movie which includes a first look at Li BingBing as Ada Wong in action .  Also, if you’re a fan of Tron: Legacy, pay attention to the music.  The teaser is using a track called “Recognizer.”  It’s track #4 on the soundtrack.
