Thanks to IGN, the first look at the rebooted horror movie franchise escapes online!
Grab those trusty med packs. Stock up on ammunition. Sharpen those knives. Grab all the weapons you can. Because we are about to re-enter Raccoon City. Courtesy of those helpful folks over at IGN, we have been afforded our first look at the new film ‘Resident Evil: Welcome To Raccoon City.’ The film, after suffering several release delays, is due to open on November 24th. The first photos show us Claire Redfield, Chris Redfield, Jill Valentine, Albert Wesker, Leon S. Kennedy, Brad Vickers, and Lisa Trevor. Take a deep breath, don’t make any noise, and let’s take a look.
RESIDENT EVIL: WELCOME TO RACCOON CITY FIRST LOOK!
Our first image shows Kaya Scodelario as Claire Redfield and Avan Jogia as Leon Kennedy. As you can see from the photo, Claire gets to sport her familiar red jacket from the video games. While Leon is wearing his Raccoon City police uniform. The pair are patrolling one of the underground areas that will give the fans hope that the film will be sticking with the events of the first two games in the franchise as promised.
Next up we have Hannah John-Kamen as Jill Valentine, Tom Hopper as Albert Wesker. Robbie Amell as Chris Redfield and Nathan Dales as Brad Vickers. We see here that the foursome is exploring the Spencer Mansion. Finally, the cries of the fans, asking for the mansion to be included in the franchise on the big screen have been answered.
Finally, we have the first terrifying look at Marina Mazepa as Lisa Trevor. Lisa is the daughter of the Spencer Mansion’s architect. And has been frighteningly transformed into the creature we see below. Lisa has mutated like this after the Umbrella Corporation exposed her to various viruses. They also conducted experiments on her at the Arklay Laboratory.
Once the booming home of pharmaceutical giant Umbrella Corporation, Raccoon City is now a dying Midwestern town. The company’s exodus left the city a wasteland. And with great evil brewing below the surface. When that evil is unleashed, the townspeople are forever changed. A small group of survivors must work together to uncover the truth behind Umbrella and make it through the night.
Written and directed by Johannes Roberts, ‘Resident Evil: Welcome To Raccoon City.’ shuffles its undead self into theatres on November 24th!
