Sony Pictures unveiled the first trailer for the next Resident Evil movie, Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City. Though the Resident Evil trailer is only available in English and Hindi, the movie will be released in India in four languages: English, Hindi, Tamil, and Telugu. The movie is a reboot of the Milla Jovovich-led six-film series, and draws from the first two Capcom games released in 1996 and 1998.
The movie is made up of action bits and snippets, as the team fights against monstrosities that now plague the town.
In addition to Scodelario, Amell, Jojia, and Hopper, the movie also stars Hannah John-Kamen (Ant-Man and the Wasp) as Chris’ partner Jill Valentine, Donal Logue as RPD’s chief of police Brian Irons, Neal McDonough as Umbrella’s experiments leader William Birkin, and Lily Gao as mysterious spy Ada Wong. Johannes Roberts (47 Meters Down) is the writer and director.
The movie is produced by Screen Gems, The Fyzz Facility, Constantin Film, The Tea Shop and Film Company, and Davis Films. Sony Pictures handles distribution globally, except in Germany (Constantin Film), Canada (Elevation Pictures), and France (Metropolitan Filmexport). The new Resident Evil movie is made on an estimated budget of $40 million (about Rs. 300 crores). The movie will be released on November 26 in cinemas worldwide.
