Sony started off its marketing for the fifth installment in the Resident Evil live-action franchise, sub-titled Retribution (a.k.a. Re5ident Evil: Retribution), with a teaser trailer that pulled double-duty as a light-hearted satire of the company’s advertising for its electronic devices – while still serving as a (shameless?) product plug.

Last November Hawke said "All three of us have been having similar feelings that we're ready to revisit those characters." Looks like they're following through on the promise.
The big question of course is what will the title be? "Before Moonrise," "Before Midnight"?
