3 Sep – In conjunction with the highly anticipated release of the fifth instalment of Sony Pictures' "Resident Evil", titled "Resident Evil: Retribution", a special race will be held on 8 September in the heart of Orchard Road.

The event will see two cosplayers dressed as Alice, the lead character of the film franchise, who is played by Milla Jovovich in the film and Ada Wong, her new companion in "Retribution", who is played by Li Bingbing in the film, leading some 200 participants in a race for survival. Participants will have to manoeuvre the 1.7km race route and avoid about 50 zombies ready to pounce on and rob them of their "life tag" before clearing the finishing line.

The race will begin at the open space opposite Concorde Hotel Singapore and end at Shaw House. The three fastest survivors will win attractive prizes worth a total of SG$7,000 including cash, Sony electronic products and spa vouchers, while the first 50 survivors will receive special passes to watch "Resident Evil: Retribution in IMAX 3D on the movie's opening day.

Members of the public who are keen on catching the race can watch it along the Ngee Ann City, Wisma and Ion Orchard stretch along Orchard Road. The race will start at 7:00 PM on Saturday, 8 September 2012. There will also be a photo-taking session with the cosplayers after the race at Shaw House.

More details can be obtained at www.shaw.sg/imax/residentevilrace.

Written and directed by Paul W. S. Anderson, the fifth instalment of the video game adaptation continues the story of a society ravaged by Umbrella Corporation's deadly T-virus, which transforms the global population into legions of increasingly lethal Undead. The human race's last and only hope, Alice (Milla Jovovich), awakens in the heart of Umbrella's most impenetrable operations facility. In an attempt to escape from the vast, high-tech complex, Alice will have to battle her way through the cityscapes of Tokyo, New York City, Moscow and Washington, D.C. with the help of a crew of elite commandos. As if that is not hard enough, along the way, she will encounter a series of mind-blowing revelations that will force her to rethink everything she once believed.

"Resident Evil: Retribution "will open in Shaw Theatres IMAX on 13 September 2012. To date, the film franchise adaptation has grossed nearly $700 million worldwide.
