Last night we were treated to a first look at Resident Evil: Welcome To Raccoon City in action. It's safe to say that the response to the trailer so far has been... not great.
This new movie is a complete reboot, which means it has nothing to do with the Milla Jovovich/Paul W.S. Anderson movies from back in the day. Instead, we're told, Welcome To Raccoon City is a more faithful adaptation of the Capcom survival horror series that combines the events of the original Resident Evil and Resident Evil 2.
As Claire Redfield and Leon S. Kennedy fight to survive a zombie-infested Racoon City, Chris Redfield and Jill Valentine investigate the mysterious Spencer Mansion. Take a look at the trailer below!
Fans of the series were quick to react to the new trailer with a wide range of opinions. Most agree that the movie looks kind of awful, although some are insisting that's part of Resident Evil's schlocky B-movie charm and will ultimately work in its favour.
i think Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City absolutely looks ass in the best possible way. at this point, i don't even want a good RE movie. just give me campy, zombie schlock, it's exactly what that franchise has always been. i love it. pic.twitter.com/fYS1e93j77- Zachary Ryan (@ZachariusD) October 7, 2021
It surely looks like shit but actually looks like its gonna be the best Resident Evil movie made to this date. Cause they *at least* got some people who ACTUALLY PLAYED THE GAME to do it...- :jack_o_lantern::ghost:Conde Iguana:jack_o_lantern: (@laiguanatuiter) October 7, 2021
Being a Resident Evil fan is just being fucked by both Hollywood and Capcom all the time.

Meanwhile, other fans are being... slightly less kind.
