Press Release from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment
Culver City, Calif. (Nov. 1, 2010) – On December 28th Sony Pictures Home Entertainment will unleash the deadly T-virus into homes everywhere when Resident Evil: Afterlife explodes onto Blu-ray 3D, Blu-ray and DVD. The Blu-ray 3D will flood veins with adrenaline and kick viewers into survival mode in 1080p high definition 3D, optimized for the latest 3D playback devices and eyewear, but also including a backwards-compatible 2D version of the film that plays on all existing Blu-ray players. For those who prefer their zombies safely in two dimensions, Resident Evil: Afterlife will also be offered on 2D Blu-ray and DVD the same day.
Based on one of the most successful video game franchises of all time, Resident Evil: Afterlife opens with Alice (Milla Jovovich, Resident Evil, The Fifth Element) on a lonely and dangerous hunt for survivors in a decimated world crawling with the Undead. On her quest for the alleged safe-haven “Arcadia,” she finds survivors Claire and Chris Redfield (Ali Larter, “Heroes”, Resident Evil: Extinction and Wentworth Miller, “Prison Break”, Underworld), and the smoldering trio heats up the screen as they ravenously set their sights on taking down the evil Chairman of the Umbrella Corporation, Albert Wesker (Shawn Roberts, Edge of Darkness) and hordes of the Undead along the way.
When the bloodshed is over and the credits roll, be warned that the Blu-ray and Blu-ray 3D live on with horror-filled special features, including eight deleted scenes, seven featurettes, an “Undead Vision” Picture-in-Picture Video, filmmaker and cast commentary, a blooper reel and movieIQ+sync, which allows users to access real time information on the cast, music, trivia and more while watching the movie via BD-Live™. The DVD release offers filmmaker and cast commentary and two featurettes.
Also included on both the DVD and the Blu-ray editions of Resident Evil: Afterlife is a teaser trailer for an all-new CG-animated installment in the Resident Evil franchise, Resident Evil: Damnation. Resident Evil: Afterlife will be available for the SRP of $34.95 (Blu-ray), $39.95 (Blu-ray 3D) and $28.95 (DVD).
Resident Evil: Afterlife SynopsisIn a world ravaged by a virus infection, turning its victims into the Undead, Alice continues on her journey to find survivors and lead them to safety.
