The trailer for Resident Evil: Welcome To Raccoon City is here. Gosh, there's a lot riding on this. Fortunately, it doesn't look too shabby for an apocalyptic adventure.
Of course, there are the series of Paul W S Anderson films that are... let's say... loosely inspired by the games. Perhaps that's too generous. This new outing totally ignores these jaunts in favour of sticking closely to the original material, which is music to the ears of fans.
"I really wanted to recreate the fear of playing that first game," said director Johannes Roberts in an interview with Den of Geek. To Roberts, that's not just making sure every story beat is covered, but experimenting with those tight camera angles of Resident Evil to produce that same suspense.
Enough with the letters and words and sentences, already! Check out the trailer for Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City here!
"In Resident Evil: Welcome To Raccoon City, once the booming home of pharmaceutical giant Umbrella Corporation, Raccoon City is now a dying Midwestern town," stated the synopsis for the movie. "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."
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).
