We already knew the fourth entry into the creature-laden Resident Evil franchise, Resident Evil: Afterlife, would be hitting theatres on September 10th in glorious 3D, but now comes word from Sony Pictures that they’ll be booking the film into Imax theatres simultaneous with its conventional theatre release.
Per The Hollywood Reporter the picture was shot in and around Toronto in 2009 and will be digitally remastered before landing on Imax screens. Rory Bruer, president of worldwide distribution at Sony Pictures Releasing, said, “In 3D, fans of ‘Resident Evil’ will have a whole new way to enjoy this next exciting chapter, and we’re delighted that audiences will also have the opportunity to experience the film in Imax 3D at digital Imax locations, where they will feel like they are virtually in the movie.”
In a world ravaged by a virus infection, turning its victims into the Undead, Alice (Milla Jovovich) continues on her journey to find survivors and lead them to safety. Her deadly battle with the Umbrella Corporation reaches new heights, but Alice gets some unexpected help from an old friend. A new lead that promises a safe haven from the Undead takes them to Los Angeles, but when they arrive, the city is overrun by thousands of Undead and Alice and her comrades are about to step into a deadly trap.
