The upcoming Resident Evil-related announcement we posted about earlier may have already been busted wide open by the injudicious tweets of one Milla Jovovich, the star of the RE films. She tweeted (in rather long form, sort of missing the point of Twitter altogether):
"Gotta get back 2 work! So now OFFICIALLY paul got an email saying the RE:RETRIBUTION teaser will b out -and I quote- "tomorrow thurs. the 19th at 1pm EST/10am PST. US is launching w Yahoo Movies n int'l markets r each securing a local launch site (whatever that means! Lol!) the trailer will launch on the official movie site http://www.residentevil-movie.com as well". But i actually jst checked that site n the "retribution" site isnt up yet which is weird. Im contacting sony today n will keep u posted as soon as i hear back from them. So there u go! A bit confusing for me a well as for u all... Don't worry, I'll get to the bottom of this, Mai tai in hand (woot woot!). Xo m"
We know how painful that was for you to read, but we felt it important you hear it from the original source.
Even if there is a trailer for Retribution coming out tomorrow, we'll still hold out for a Resident Evil 6 announcement as well. The viral marketing thing seems like it may be pointing to more than just a film trailer, in our opinions. Are we being too optimistic? Let us know in the comments or on Twitter.
