The film Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City premieres in the USA on November 24 and will enter Czech cinemas under the title Resident Evil: Raccoon City on December 2. After a number of news and the first photos, we have now finally seen our debut trailer for the reboot film series. If you’ve been following the information about the upcoming adaptation, you probably won’t be surprised how the trailer works.
We can obviously look forward to authentic stylization, scenery, favorite heroes and monsters. The trailer already demonstrates some iconic situations and scenes as we know them from the first and second part, which inspires them. In fact, I’m willing to believe the repeated promises that it will be a more faithful adaptation, which wants to flatter the fans of the model, but the demonstration did not particularly entice me, and as a supporter of Resident Evil, I remain rather indifferent to Welcome to Raccoon City. But maybe it will be fun in such an unwanted way.
The film stars Hannah John-Kamen, Tom Hopper, Kaya Scodelario and Robbie Amell. Probably the biggest “star” is Neal McDonough.
The design also looks a bit strange. I don’t know why I had the impression that it was supposed to be a big blockbuster, so far the trailer looks more like a cheaper TV project. But maybe I’m just unnecessarily critical, or the result will make a different impression than the trailer, which is accompanied by the “not entirely horror” song What’s Up from the American rock band 4 Non Blondes.
Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City was written and filmed by screenwriter and director Johannes Roberts. He has on his account the horror movies Storage 24, The Dark Side of the Door, 47 meters or Oni 2: Night Booty. There are a few decent pieces among them, but on the other hand, he didn’t create a real hit or a really good picture. The film stars Hannah John-Kamen, Tom Hopper, Kaya Scodelario and Robbie Amell. Probably the biggest “star” is Neal McDonough. The film has been prepared since 2017 and was shot last October in Canada.
