The first official images from the highly anticipated reboot of the Resident Evil movie franchise have arrived. These images from Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City feature two of the main protagonists, Kaya Scodelario’s Claire Redfield and Avan Jogia’s Leon S. Kennedy, advancing, guns in hand, in some sort of basement. Their look resembles what we saw in Resident Evil 2. Leon is wearing his police uniform while Claire dons her notorious red leather jacket. There is also a picture with Albert Wesker, Richard Aiken, Jill Valentine, and Chris Redfield, the STARS members likely on a rescue mission. But most interestingly, fans got a photo of Lisa Trevor, a pivotal character the protagonists will meet in the story.
You can see all of the freshly released photos in the gallery below.
Johannes Roberts directed the movie in addition to writing the script. The official synopsis reads:
“Returning to the origins of the massively popular Resident Evil franchise, fan and filmmaker Johannes Roberts brings the games to life for a whole new generation of fans. In Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City, once the booming home of pharmaceutical giant Umbrella Corporation, Raccoon City is now a dying Midwestern town. The company’s exodus left the city a wasteland…with great evil brewing below the surface. When that evil is unleashed, a group of survivors must work together to uncover the truth behind Umbrella and make it through the night.”
According to the producers’ plans, Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City will hit theaters on Nov. 24.
