Resident Evil: Retribution is heading to 3D, 2D and IMAX 3D theaters on September 14th and Sony Pictures has just released a new TV spot that you can check out in the player below. What’s more, the viral campaign (which we first reported on back in May) has taken a strange turn with the fictional Umbrella Corporation issuing the following press release:
The Umbrella Corporation announced today that it has filed with the Global Exchange and Securities Commission for a proposed initial public offering of its common stock – ($500,000,000) shares at $25 per share. Shares are expected to begin trading on the Nasdaq Global Select Market on September 14, 2012 under the symbol “BLIFE.”
The altruistic mandate behind the IPO launch is to increase funding to allow for expansion of The Umbrella Corporation’s global infrastructure, with the goal of offering all shareholders a unique opportunity to be part of the corporation’s life changing developments. The IPO offering follows the phase one reorganization of company’s core communications including an extensive world recruitment tour in April, 2012 of its state-of-the-art Mobile Recruitment Center, which resulted in thousands of new recruits. This was followed by a phase two initiative, a global public relations outreach through its Facebook page in June 2012 resulting in an additional 300,000 new recruits. Phase three will see the launch of its revamped Umbrella Corporate website which will focus on the company’s corporate initiatives.
The Umbrella Corporation is involved in advanced research and development that includes clinical trials, scientific testing, and drug creation aimed at improving the health and condition of mankind and complete eradication of human suffering. In a groundbreaking move, as part of the stock purchase, shareholders will be sent free samples of the company’s latest breakthrough anti-aging drug.
Additionally, in this time of economic turmoil, The Umbrella Corporation will seek to shelter stockholders from the impending fiscal storm and provide coverage and stability for their families and themselves in a world made better by The Umbrella Corporation.
