Director Johannes Roberts is intent upon satisfying franchise fans with his back to ground zero reboot Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City.

The movie, based on the wildly popular Capcom game series, is set to feature many a fan favourite creature, including Lisa Trevor. The featurette below gives us a quick bit of further insight – and a few sneak peeks.

Here’s the official story: “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.”

This one stars Kaya Scodelario, Hannah John-Kamen, Robbie Amell, Tom Hopper, Avan Jogia, Donal Logue and Neal McDonough.

Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City is set to hit Aussie cinemas from December 9.
