Just up the road at the Toho Cinemas Roppongi Hills plex on Thursday, the cast of this latest installment in the Screen Gems franchise fortunately found a much more cordial setting for its world preem.

Milla Jovovich, outfitted in shimmering gold, prepped the audience beforehand for the acrobatics and spraying bullets that would follow. “I hope you all have your seat belts on,” said the actress, who has starred as heroine Alice in all four “Resident Evil” pics. “You better buckle them up. You are in for the ride of your life.”

At the after-party, held at the MLB Cafe Tokyo, Jovovich extolled the expanded virtues of this particular installment, which is known as “Biohazard IV: Afterlife” in Japan. “The fact that we went to Tokyo, Alaska and Los Angeles gives the movie a real epic scope,” she said.
