Silas Lesnick: We’re launching with Paul W.S. Anderson taking the stage!
 
4:12
Silas Lesnick: He’s talking about the global scale of the fifth film in the series
 
4:13
Silas Lesnick: While the action is as big as possible in terms of action, he wants it to be as small as possible in terms of Mila Jovovich’s Alice.
 
4:13
Silas Lesnick: He wants an ultra-focused Alice that brings out the human side of her character
 
4:13
Silas Lesnick: They’re premiering a brand-new trailer!
 
4:16
Silas Lesnick: Like a lot of the RE trailers, this one opens with a fake-out, mimicking a romantic comedy
 
4:17
Silas Lesnick: We see that Alice has been imprinted in a fake life in a suburban house with a husband and kid.
 
4:17
Silas Lesnick: Much of the opening is the same as the old trailer, but this one seems be extra-long
 
4:18
Silas Lesnick: We see the full cast and all the returning characters as well as the newcomers, including Bingbing Li’s Ada Wong.
 
4:18
Silas Lesnick: The cast has come on-stage!
 
4:19
Silas Lesnick: They’re about to show off some new footage
 
4:19
Silas Lesnick: It’s going to be a part of the climactic fight at the end of the movie. It’s Alice vs. Jill Valentine!
 
4:21
Silas Lesnick: We see cracks forming across an arctic terrain
 
4:21
ComingSoon.net: Great, thanks for the spoiler Silas! Oh wait, we already knew that 🙂

4:21
Silas Lesnick: It’s a confrontation in the snow

Comment From Julianna

4:22
Silas Lesnick: She blasts Rain with bullets and knocks her back, but she seems to regenerate
 
4:22
ComingSoon.net: Why are you on this live blog then? 🙂
 
4:23
Comment From REFan 
I want to hear as much detail as possible, ignore the haters!
 
4:23
Silas Lesnick: Jill and Alice begin a pretty epic fight, but it cuts off midway through just as the action hits a fever pitch
 
4:24
Silas Lesnick: (It’s Alice who shoots Rain. Rain stands as the bullets fall from her body and hit the bloody snow and her wounds close themselves.)
 
4:26
Silas Lesnick: Milla, Boris Kodjoe, Michelle Rodriguez, Mika Nakashima and Oded Fehr are the ones on stage.
 
4:27

4:31
Silas Lesnick: Milla jokes that all Paul (her husband) does when he directs is “press record”
 
4:32
Silas Lesnick: Milla says that being “suburban Alice” was much harder than doing action
 
4:32
Silas Lesnick: It was trickier being frightened and screaming than just blasting things with a machine gun
 
4:33
Silas Lesnick: Someone mentioned to Michelle that her characters tend to come back from the dead and whether or not her AVATAR character might come back.
 
4:33
Silas Lesnick: “That’s a James Cameron question,” she said.
 
4:33
Silas Lesnick: “This is definitely the beginning of the end,” says Paul about the franchise.
 
4:33
Silas Lesnick: “A lot of big characters die.”
 
4:34
Silas Lesnick: “Resident Evil has a life after Alice and before Alice,” says Milla
 
4:36
Silas Lesnick: She says they never talk about a sequel while they’re working on one, but that Paul did mention a sixth one that will probably end the Alice arc.
 
4:38
Silas Lesnick: “I gyrate a lot,” says Michelle about her exercise routine.
 
4:39
Silas Lesnick: Someone is asking about how Michelle and Oded feel about returning from the dead
 
4:40
Silas Lesnick: It looks like that’s about it for this one. We should be moving into the rest of the Sony panel in just a moment.
