The upcoming new Resident Evil movie goes to great lengths to get things right, as it goes full reboot for an origin story based heavily on the Capcom games.

Writer/director Johannes Roberts tells us as much in a new featurette, although it doesn’t go to particularly great lengths as it only clocks in at a meagre 45 seconds. Sigh, the attention spans of toda- oooooooooooooooooh, shiny!

Still, it is reassuring to know that a lot of love is being put into the rebooted horror tale – sometimes it’s the little details that can be the difference between yeah and meh.

Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City is set for a December 9 Australian cinema release.
