First publicity images for RESIDENT EVIL: WELCOME TO RACCOON CITY drop

Sony Pictures have released the first three publicity images from their upcoming Resident Evil reboot movie, Welcome to Raccoon City. The movie adapts the storylines from Resident Evil (1996) and Resident Evil 2 (1998) into a single story.

The first image recreates the iconic opening of the original Resident Evil video game from 1996. It depicts STARS Agents Albert Wesker (Tom Hopper), Jill Valentine (Hannah John-Kamen) and Chris Redfield (Robbie Amell) arriving at the Spencer Mansion outside Raccoon City to investigate reports of strange goings-on.

The second image depicts Raccoon Police Department recruit Leon S. Kennedy (Avan Jogia) and college student Claire Redfield (Kaya Scodelario) investigating the Umbrella Corporation's machinations in Raccoon City itself.

The final and creepiest image depicts Marina Mazepa as Lisa Trevor, a young woman who's undergone strange experiments at the hands of the sinister Umbrella Corporation.

The film is written and directed by Johannes Roberts, with creative input from Capcom. Additional castmembers include Lily Gao, Neal McDonough and Donal Logue. The film is set for release on 24 November. It is not related to either the previous Resident Evil movie franchise or Netflix's upcoming TV version of the story.
