We've just been treated to our first proper look at Resident Evil: Welcome To Raccoon City in action, and it looks... okay?
The upcoming live-action adventure is a complete reboot that ignores the original Milla Jovovich films, which admittedly stopped having anything to do the iconic Capcom survival horror as we knew it before the end credits of the first movie.
This new incarnation will more closely follow the events of the first two Resident Evil games and server as a more faithful adaptation. You probably already know the story: As a team of special ops investigate a mysterious mansion in the Arklay mountains, a rookie cop and a civilian desperately fight to stay alive in a city that has been overrun by a zombie virus. Take a look at the teaser trailer below.
"In Resident Evil: Welcome To Raccoon City, once the booming home of pharmaceutical giant Umbrella Corporation, Raccoon City is now a dying Midwestern town," reads the film's synopsis. "The company's exodus left the city a wasteland...with great evil brewing below the surface. When that evil is unleashed, a group of survivors must work together to uncover the truth behind Umbrella and make it through the night."
Capcom has promised a full trailer will be dropping later today ahead of the film's November 24 release date, but hopefully this will whet your appetite until then. The zombie dogs definitely look suitably terrifying, even if some of the other monsters glimpsed in the teaser... do not.
Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City is written and directed by Johannes Roberts (The Strangers: Prey at Night), and stars Kaya Scodelario (Claire Redfield), Robbie Amell (Chris Redfield), Avan Jogia (Leon S. Kennedy), Hannah John-Kamen (Jill Valentine), Tom Hopper (Albert Wesker), Lily Gao (Ada Wong), and Donal Logue (Chief Brian Irons).
