Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City is set to reboot the Capcom game’s movie universe, with siblings Claire and Chris Redfield two stars of the show.
Kaya Scodelario portrays Claire Redfield, while Robbie Amell steps into the shoes of older brother Chris. We’re introduced to them by two brief featurettes that you can watch down this very page a bit.
Here’s the official blurb for the movie: “Returning to the origins of the massively popular Resident Evil franchise, fan and filmmaker Johannes Roberts brings the games to life for a whole new generation of fans. 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.”
Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City is set for a December 9 Australian cinema release.
…and here’s Chris!
