Check out the new featurette for Resident Evil: Welcome To Raccoon City. It is focusing on bringing the classic horror game to life on the big screen and how they used the source material and the original creature designs.
Writer and director Johannes Roberts says in the featurette, “We see a lot of the fan-favorite creatures in this movie. It was very important to me to bring something new with the zombies whilst also making sure we were faithful to the game.” He went on to say that they “didn’t cast extras. We cast actors” in the roles of the creatures to help ensure the the monsters will be just as interesting and compelling as the human characters.
Also, check out the creepy clip from the movie which features Leon S. Kennedy meeting Lisa Trevor. Lisa Trevor’s story in the game is one of the most interesting in the franchise, and it was totally ignored in the first run of movies. Now it is part of the movie and it is awesome.
Lisa was a human test subject who was forced to undergo a plethora of biological experiments led by the nefarious Umbrella Corporation. The side-effects of the practices mutated Lisa into a frightful abomination.
Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City takes place on a fateful night in Raccoon City in 1998, “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…with great evil brewing below the surface. When that evil is unleashed, a group of survivors must work together to uncover the truth behind Umbrella and make it through the night.”
The cast of the movie includes Kaya Scodelario, Hannah John-Kamen, Robbie Amell, Tom Hopper, and Avan Jogia, with Donal Logue, and Neal McDonough.
Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City will hit theaters on November 24, 2021.
