Resident Evil Retribution trailer arrives like the loud funmeister it is

The eagle has landed. And by eagle, I mean the new Resident Evil: Retribution trailer. And it has arrived a day later than promised. Check it out:

I quite like the trailer, what with its 'misleading' start, and the film seems to be promising ridiculous popcorn action, which is exactly what you'd expect from Resident Evil at this point. 

Once upon a time, I had high hopes for this series to be good and potentially worth note in the annuls of history, but I have long since given those hopes up. The series not only jumped the shark pretty much from the get-go (though far more noticeably with every following sequel), it shot, knifed and bazooka-ed it, then brought it back to life and tried to killing it again, but (what a twist) it still sharked on. So, let's take this as it is; stupid action. 

There looks like there will be more variety in the monsters featured, if the winged beasts are anything to go by, and plenty of past characters make their return (not in an entirely forced way, of course). Will it be good? Na, probably not. Will it be fun? Damn straight it will be.
