A Whopping 42 Action-Packed ‘Resident Evil: Retribution’ Poster Comps!!

BD reader “Lucksaw” pointed us to the IMDB where a user dropped 42 poster comps for Screen Gems’ forthcoming Resident Evil: Retribution. It should be noted that none of these are “official”, and most will never be used, but it appears that what you’re about to look at are the designers’ various takes on the forthcoming sequel directed by Paul W.S. Anderson.

In theaters September 14, “The Umbrella Corporation’s deadly T-virus continues to ravage the Earth, transforming the global population into legions of the flesh eating Undead. The human race’s last and only hope, Alice (Milla Jovovich), awakens in the heart of Umbrella’s most clandestine operations facility and unveils more of her mysterious past as she delves further into the complex. Without a safe haven, Alice continues to hunt those responsible for the outbreak; a chase that takes her from Tokyo to New York, Washington, D.C. and Moscow, culminating in a mind-blowing revelation that will force her to rethink everything that she once thought to be true. Aided by newfound allies and familiar friends, Alice must fight to survive long enough to escape a hostile world on the brink of oblivion. The countdown has begun.

Milla Jovovich, Sienna Guillory, Colin Salmon, Shawn Roberts, Boris Kodjoe, Michelle Rodriguez, Johann Urb, Oded Fehr, Kevin Durand and Li Bingbing all star.

*Editor’s note: To be clear, none of these are confirmed official by the studio. They are most likely comps from an outside company hired to design the art.

    Some of them are really basic, but some are fantastic! The tagline ‘Alice in Wasteland’ is absolutely gorgeous :D

    These are awesome! I love fan posters.

    Yeah, these are all official, not fanmade! Designers from http://www.artmachine.com/ made them & these originally came from a PDF from the company that were posted on a forum.

    these are probably the best posters they have had for any of the RE movies (and i say that as a huge fan of these movies!). i love all these posters and they are definitely offical and not fan made! i’ve been reading online people (who’ve been reading Milla’s tweets) saying that the full RE:RETRIBUTION trailer is due at any time now (Milla said something about it definitely being out before Adam Sandler’s THAT’S MY BOY).

    Let’s all just take a moment and point out that there is a zombie riding a motorcycle holding a chainsaw in these things.

    xXTheDaymanXx, if that “zombie riding a motorcycle” deal is absurd or stupid in your eyes (i DO agree that it’s silly) then Cap-com is who is to blame for adding those types of infected (las Plagas) to the RE5 game.

      Personally the motocycle guys are a huge win for me, I love that kind of thing. It’s doesn’t hurt that I am also a big fan of the Majini and the RE4/5 storylines. In any case I am pumped for this movie. :)
