New images for live-action 'Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City' released

Yet another Resident Evil live-action movie is in the works and slated for a release later this year. But this one is separate from the ones featuring Milla Jovovich. The upcoming Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City is written and directed by Johannes Roberts who confirmed in a recent interview with IGN that "this movie really had nothing to do with the previous franchise". "This was all about returning to the games and creating a movie that was much more a horror movie than the sort of sci-fi action of the previous films," Roberts added.

Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City plot will revolve around the first two Resident Evil games and will as such feature iconic characters like Claire Redfield (Kaya Scodelario), Leon S. Kennedy (Avan Jogia), Albert Wesker (Tom Hopper), Richard Aiken (Chad Rook), Jill Valentine (Hannah John-Kamen), and Chris Redfield (Robbie Amell). IGN's interview also included exclusive images giving us a first look at the actors portraying those characters. You can see those 3 images below, where one is also of Lisa Trevor (Marina Mazepa):

“We worked very closely with Capcom. Every character and creature is from the game and as such, I wanted to be as faithful as possible. I wanted to create a truly immersive feeling for the fans,” Roberts said in the interview. “But that also became the trickiest part of adapting a piece of IP like this because I didn’t just want to put the game on screen - it had to be its own thing with living breathing characters and creatures (and, of course, zombies!) that felt true to the world.”

What do you think of those first images of Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City? Will you watch it when it premieres in theaters later this year (November 24 in the US, November 25 in Australia and December 3 in the UK)?

So I'm a racist because I don't like things like lets say... a character that was created as a black character and has existed as a black character for decades... being changed to a white character. Then yup, I'm racist. Shrug. Only people I see crying are the ones who don't like the opinions of others.



His father is British Indian. Thanks. And "crybaby"? Says the crybaby crying about my opinion. Hypocrite much? Also, I'm not a strong supporter of your lame ass assumption, but I am a strong supporter of one of the best qualified applicants would at least slightly resemble every version of the character that has ever existed. Sorry my opinion bothers you so much. Now sit down, crybaby.

Please do keep hurling your toys out the pram, it's really funny.

they are cramping re1 and 2 in the same movie, and its probably gonna be like a 90 min movie covering 2 games, so expect huge made up plot cutting most of everything lol.
Thing is , what really is the plot of both RE 1 and 2 games ?? If you skip the boring fights and lazy item searching and backtracking , slow paced movement, the entire story can be told in about 15 minutes.

Except that cutscenes don't cover the whole story. Even games with hours of cutscenes still have them at key points.

You're right. People are going to miss the door opening scenes.

The main character is called Kumar lol

Damn some GBAtempers are starting to show their true colors, or lack of that is.

I agree. You really can't make a movie about the first game exclusively and not have it boring for the most part. This is why 2 is included and why I think it's going to take up most of the run time.

Seems like there's a ton of morons in this thread that just want "Resident Evil Cosplay: The Movie" and are pre-judging the ability of the cast based on how much they don't resemble a handful of polygons.
Yeah, it could end up being shit... but from those photos alone it already looks like a more authentic RE than the PWS Anderson bollocks.

unless they dont fight the boss battles, they dont go outside or for the ahrk lab that is, resident evil 1 has many stuff to fill you could easily make a 90 min movie without any problems imo.
