Let’s All Take a Trip to Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City
I loved the Resident Evil games when I was a kid, and it looks like those early games are going to be the focus of the new movie reboot. As we all know, the Resident Evil movie series was only loosely connected to the games and served more as a way to keep giving Mila Jovovich some work. Well the new film, Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City is going back to the games with a simultaneous adaptation of the first and second Residents Evil.
I am very cautiously optimistic about this movie. On the one hand, I loved those first two Resident Evil games and would love a more direct adaptation. On the other hand, this looks to be a very cheaply made movie trying to cash in on the name brand, which isn’t so hot these days.
But maybe we’ll get lucky and Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City will be good. It comes to theaters on Nov. 24.
