The 25th anniversary of the Resident Evil saga continues to be celebrated and, with Village now available (and about to expand) and the Infinite Darkness mini-series released on Netflix, we have to talk about Resident Evil: Welcome To Raccoon City, the new feature film that will serve as a total reboot of the prolific cinematographic saga.
What makes this new movie different? Input, Resident Evil: Welcome To Raccoon City seeks to be a direct and faithful adaptation of video games focusing, as its name suggests, on the events of Resident Evil and Resident Evil 2. And the new batch of images are much more than a statement of intent.
Thus, in Welcome To Raccoon City we will witness the incursion of Albert Wesker (played by Tom Hopper), Brad Vickers (as Nathan Dales), Jill Valentine (Hannah John-Kamen) y Chris Redfield (Robbie Amell) at the Spencer Mansion with an aesthetic and wardrobe very aligned with the 1996 classic.
Yes, the director Johannes Roberts seems to be clear about what to bring to this adaptation and what to leave in the previous films:
The great difference of this film compared to the previous ones is that, together, each of the main characters has a great importance in the narrative itself. In addition, they are not limited to being characters disguised with the costumes and hairdressing of the characters in the video game.
In fact, Roberts himself (director of At 47 meters) claims to completely cut ties with the previous film saga, which implies that the personalities of Jill and Chris for this film are totally based on the original material from Capcom. And the same can be expected with the other couple of protagonists of the film.
For its part, the plot of Welcome To Raccoon City covers at least two video games, with which we will also witness on the big screen the debacle of Raccoon City through the intrepid Claire Redfield (Kaya Scodelario) and the rookie Leon S. Kennedy (Avan Jogia).
Will we see Nemesis? Well, what is clear is that there will be creatures that will seek to generate an impact on the viewer. After all, Resident Evil It has always been a tribute to Hollywood zombie movies and major catastrophes.
Roberts intends to continue Capcom’s premise of take the franchise back to its roots with the horror genre. And that Capcom has been closely involved in production and practical effects are being given special weight over digitals makes us optimistic about the outcome.
The release date of Resident Evil: Welcome To Raccoon City is scheduled for November 24, 2021 in the United States and other countries, while we will have to wait until December 30 so that it reaches the Spanish billboards. What better way to celebrate Christmas than reuniting with old friends?
Until then, and to ease the wait, we leave you with the trailer of Infinite Darkness.
