Original article (November 4, 2012): Sony Pictures Home Entertainment has selected a December 21, 2012 release date for Resident Evil: Retribution on Blu-ray 3D, Blu-ray and DVD, just in time to make it available as a stocking stuff or gift this holiday season.
Paul W.S. Anderson’s Resident Evil: Retribution is the fifth film in the video game-inspired franchise that stars Milla Jovovich, Sienna Guillory and Michelle Rodriguez. It has earned only $42.1 million at the domestic box office, but strong demand overseas has pushed its worldwide total to $217.7 million thus far.
Additional Resident Evil: Retribution home video details will be available in the coming weeks when Sony makes their official announcement. In the meantime, Amazon pre-order links for the Blu-ray 3D and Blu-ray combo packs are below, followed by the probable Blu-ray 3D cover art.
