You must have already seen the first trailer for Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City. While it was undoubtedly a welcome treat for longtime fans of Capcom’s iconic video game series, the quietly released International Trailer is an unexpected additional surprise: it’s more mysterious, creepy and hints at an all-round more efficient horror film. .
From the opening beats, the alternate Resident Evil movie trailer is clearly a completely different beast that grabbed the spotlight upon release.
While the original focused more on fan service — and brought together racy touchstones including Redfields, Leon Kennedy, and more by recreating titles and iconic scenes through familiar locations — it all came together with a tinge of spine-tingling scares. To serve the piece is in service.
It begins with a zombified girl hitting a trucker and unfolds with new scenes involving the undead, jump scares, and William Birkin’s umbrella plot, as well as the lurid Chief Irons. Better still, there’s also a nod to one of the most memorable moments of the original 1996 game: a helicopter crash and the unfortunate fate of its pilot. It’s a tone that will definitely get those who aren’t well acquainted with the franchise and are really ready for a one-way trip to Raccoon City this November.
Chris Redfield (Kaya Scodelario), Jill Valentine (Hannah John-Kamen), Chris Redfield (Robby Amell), Albert Wesker (Tom Hopper), Leon S Kennedy (Evan Jogia), Chief Irons (Donal Logue), William Birkin (Neil) McDonough), Ada Wong (Lily Gao), and Lisa Trevor (Marina Mazeppa) are all set to arrive from the Games.
Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City is set to hit theaters on November 24. In the meantime, check out some of the best horror movies of all time.
