The first 9 minutes of Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City have been released

In honor of the horror reboot’s digital release, Sony Pictures has released the first nine minutes of Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City.

The new Resident Evil film adaption is a reboot of the Capcom survival horror franchise, adapting the events of the first two Resident Evil games.

Chris Redfield and the rest of his Special Tactics And Rescue Service (STARS) Team investigate the Spencer Mansion, while his sister Chris and rookie Raccoon Police Officer Leon S. Kennedy fight to survive a zombie outbreak in the titular town, all of which appears to be connected to the ominous Umbrella pharmaceutical company.

Claire was played by Kaya Scodelairo, with Jill Valentine played by Hannah John-Kamen, Chris played by Robbie Amell, Albert Wesker played by Tom Hopper, and Leon S. Kennedy performed by Avan Jogia. The reboot’s development began immediately after the release of Resident Evil: The Final Chapter, with Greg Russo attached to write the script, though he finally left to concentrate on Warner Bros.’ Mortal Kombat, while 47 Meters Down director Johannes Roberts was brought on to write and direct. In November, Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City opened to mixed reviews from critics and audiences, as well as a low box office take.

Sony Pictures has published the first nine minutes of Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City to celebrate the film’s digital rental debut (via IGN). The video opens with Claire and Chris Redfield as children in the titular city’s orphanage, providing the first look at Lisa Trevor and Claire’s adult return to town.

Take a look at the first few minutes below:

The first few minutes of Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City serve as a wonderful tease of the film’s efforts to set up the storyline in a similar manner to the video games while returning to a horror-centric tone in contrast to Milla Jovovich’s action-heavy fare.

Lisa Trevor’s debut establishes her as a horrifying experiment in the film, even if she would later have a more redemptive path than her role as a boss in Resident Evil. The introduction of the Trucker from Resident Evil 2 is also one of the many enjoyable Easter eggs for Resident Evil 2 fans to enjoy.
