A new Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City trailer has been released.
Hitting cinemas on November 24, Welcome to Raccoon City is a reboot of the Resident Evil film franchise.
It features an origin story faithful to the first two entries in Capcom’s survival horror series.
Taking place on a fateful night in Raccoon City in 1998, the film is written and directed by Johannes Roberts (47 Meters Down).
It stars Kaya Scodelario (Maze Runner) as Claire Redfield, Hannah John-Kamen (Ant-Man and the Wasp) as Jill Valentine, Robbie Amell (Upload) as Chris Redfield, Tom Hopper (The Umbrella Academy) as Albert Wesker, Avan Jogia (Zombieland: Double Tap) as Leon S. Kennedy, and Neal McDonough (Yellowstone) as William Birkin.
“With this film, I really wanted to go back to the original, first two games and the associated terrifying experience that I had when I first played them,” Roberts said when the film was announced.
“And at the same time, I am telling the story of a small, dying American town that will appear both familiar and relevant to today’s audiences.”
The previous six Resident Evil movies, which were all written and/or directed by Paul W. S. Anderson and starred Milla Jovovich, grossed $1.2 billion at the global box office following the first one’s release in 2002.
Constantin Film producer Robert Kulzer, who also worked on those films, said previously: “After a dozen games, six live action films and hundreds of pages of fanfiction, we felt compelled to go back to 1998 to explore the secrets that lay within the walls of the Spencer Mansion and hidden from Raccoon City.”
