Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City is the brand new upcoming movie that will see the Resident Evil movie franchise rebooted, following on from the billion-dollar Paul W.S. Anderson series that was released between 2002 and 2017.
The new movie will see the franchise rebooted and will loosely follow the events of the first two Resident Evil games, which were released in 1996 and 1998 which detail the Spencer Mansion incident and the Raccoon City T-Virus outbreak and helped usher in the Survival Horror genre of video games.
Welcome to Raccoon City will release in theaters on November 24, 2021, and ahead of its release, the first trailer has finally been released, giving us an insight as to what to expect from the new movie.
Resident Evil Welcome to Raccoon City first trailer has been released
The first trailer for the brand new Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City has been released, which gives us our first look at the revamped story, which appears to loosely follow the original games, but with some changes.
From what we can see, the Spencer Mansion incident from Resident Evil 1, and the Raccoon City outbreak happen at the same time, with Leon and Claire exploring the city, while Chris, Jill, Wesker, and Richard explore the mansion.
The new trailer also gives us a look at some of the enemies that will be making an appearance, including zombies, Lickers, the dogs, Lisa Trevor, and even a Tyrant.
It is clear that the directors wanted to keep the movies as true to the games as they could, while also making some story adjustments to make it work as a film.
Many of the iconic locations such as the RPD, the diner where Leon and Claire first meet in the game, and even the orphanage from Resident Evil 2 Remake all make an appearance.
With only a few weeks to go until the film is released, many fans have been anxious that no trailer had been released, which can usually be a sign of a movie not being good.
But, after seeing the trailer for Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City, I think we can say that the movie has all of the potential to meet our expectations and we’re excited for the movie to be released.
