Return to the undead haunted streets with the first official trailer for Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City, the reboot of the film saga based on Capcom’s survival horror video game series.
Below we can admire the trailer, in Italian and in the original language, that Sony Pictures has published online and that shows us how this film has every intention of being more faithful than ever to the iconic videogame saga.
Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City is like the game we love so much in the first official trailer
The road sign welcoming Raccon City, the post-apocalyptic nocturnal atmospheres, the entrance to the police station, the famous Spencer villa and even the famous scene of the kneeling and three-quarter turning zombie, a sequence that has almost become representative of the saga itself.
Director Johannes Roberts (The forest of the damned, 47 meters) who wrote and directed the film, explained that the events of the film are based on the first two games of the saga, with Resident Evil 2 Remake still remaining the main source of inspiration.
