Sony Pictures just launched a new promo clip for the movie Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City. This video focuses on the figure of Claire Redfield, played by Kaya Scodelario. This character is described as a rebellious figure who returns to his hometown to bring down the Umbrella Corporation. The character was first portrayed by Ali Larter in the previous film franchise led by Milla Jovovich.
Returning to the gruesome roots of the survival horror game franchise, director Johannes Roberts will present even more faithful adaptations of the most successful video game franchises in history. The film will feature an origin story for Capcom’s survival horror video game franchise that will have nothing to do with Paul WS Anderson’s film series.
While the synopsis of this film provides a more in-depth description and teases the horrors that will await the film’s protagonists when they are in Raccoon City.
“Raccoon City once known for being the home of the pharmaceutical giant, Umbrella Corporation, is now turning into a dying Midwestern city. The company’s exodus turned the city into a wasteland… with all kinds of dangers and a great evil smell beneath its surface. When the evil is unleashed, the townspeople are changed forever and a small group of survivors must work together to uncover the truth behind Umbrella and try to survive.”
This movie will show Rich Scodelario (The Maze Runner) who plays as Claire Redfield, Hannah John-Kamen (Ant-Man and the Wasp) as Jill Valentine, Robbie Amell (Upload) as Chris Redfield, Tom Hopper (Black Sails) as Albert Wesker, Avan Jogia (Zombieland: Double Tap) as Leon S. Kennedy, and Neal McDonough (DC’s Legends of Tomorrow) as William Birkin. Meanwhile, Chad Rook (The Flash) will play Richard Aiken and Lily Gao (The Handmaid’s Tale) will play Ada Wong.
Synopsis Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City The ones described above sound quite familiar to fans of the video game series and once again emphasize the difference from the previous films. The film will feature an origin story that is based on the roots of the video game series and the world of horror.
