The latest vignette for Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City reveals some of the finer details that director Johannes Roberts has added to the film.
Most notable: Capcom provided the production with blueprints for the original Resident Evil games’ mansion and police station. “I want fans to just look at these locations and be like wow, I’m in the game,” he says. Kaya Scodelario, who plays Claire Redfield, also mentions “lots of little Easter eggs” throughout the movie, including the orphanage doors, old typewriters, and keys from the games.
They even highlight a health herb hanging out in the background. But that’ll only count if someone eats it.
“Resident Evil: Welcome To Raccoon City is filled with tons of Easter eggs from the games. How many can you count in this video?”
Along with Scodelario, the film also stars Hannah John-Kamen as Jill Valentine, Robbie Amell as Chris Redfield, Avan Jogia as Leon Kennedy, and Tom Hopper as Albert Wesker. Neal McDonough will also appear as William Birkin.
Sidenote: Every one of these Welcome to Raccoon City vignettes is getting thumbed down hard on YouTube. Come to find out, many are upset that Sony keeps uploading these yet hasn’t released a trailer for Spider-Man: No Way Home. I guess people are really big fans of Tobey Maguire or something.
Online squabbling aside, Welcome to Raccoon City is fast approaching, and will release in theaters November 24, 2021.
