Resident Evil Welcome to Raccoon City trailer shows how true it is to source material

Yes, please.

A proper Resident Evil Welcome to Raccoon City trailer has dropped and shows us exactly how close the film will mirror the video games it’s based upon.

“Returning to the origins of the massively popular Resident Evil franchise, fan and filmmaker Johannes Roberts brings the games to life for a whole new generation of fans,” Sony Pictures said alongside the new trailer.

Set in 1998, the film is an amalgamation of Resident Evil and Resident Evil 2. It stars Kaya Scodelario (Maze Runner) as Claire Redfield, Hannah John-Kamen (Ant-Man) as Jill Valentine, Robbie Amell (Upload) as Chris Redfield, Tom Hopper (The Umbrella Academy) as Wesker , Avan Jogia (Zombieland Double Tap) as Leon Kennedy and Neal McDonough (Yellowstone) as William Birkin.

Resident Evil Welcome to Raccoon City will debut in theatres from 24 November… though Australian specifics aren’t exactly clear at this point. We’ll keep you informed as we learn more.
