The first trailer for Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City just dropped.
The long time of waiting for our first look at proper footage from the rebooted live-action adaptation is now over, at long last. Just as we were complaining about the utter lack of any content at all, given how close to release this thing is.
Check out the trailer right here:
Welcome to Raccoon City is produced by Constantin Film, Sony Pictures Entertainment, and Tea Shop Productions and was written and directed by Johannes Roberts, who is mostly known for his 2017 film 47 Meters Down.
The movie’s cast includes Kaya Scodelario as Claire Redfield, Robbie Amell as Chris Redfield, Avan Jogia as Leon S. Kennedy, Hannah John-Kamen as Jill Valentine, Tom Hopper as Albert Wesker, as well as Lily Gao as Ada Wong and Donal Logue as Police Chief Brian Irons.
In case you missed it, here’s the film’s official synopsis:
“In RESIDENT EVIL: WELCOME TO RACCOON CITY, once the booming home of pharmaceutical giant Umbrella Corporation, Raccoon City is now a dying Midwestern town. 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.”
What do you think? Will this finally do the Resident Evil series as we love it justice, or are we in for yet another disappointment? Let us know! Check back later for an in-depth, down-to-the-frame analysis of all the little details in the trailer as well as our first impressions!
