The Resident Evil franchise has had its fair share of time on the big-screen, with six films starring Milla Jovovich being released over the past two decades. However, as with all things as of late, the beloved horror franchise is set for a cinematic reboot, and the first trailer for director Johannes Roberts’ new direction for the Resident Evil universe has been released.
Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City will be somewhat of a retelling of the original game’s premise, set during the initial outbreak of the zombie-creating virus in Raccoon City and the events that unfold at the Spencer Mansion and Raccoon City Police Department. The cast includes Kaya Scodelario (Crawl) as Claire Redfield, Hannah John-Kamen as Jill Valentine, Robbie Amell as Chris Redfield, Tom Hopper as Albert Wesker, Avan Jogia as Leon S. Kennedy, and Neal McDonough as William Birkin.
Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City is set to hit cinemas on 24 November 2021.
