Live-Action Resident Evil Reboot (Origins Story) Movie’s Theatrical Release Confirmed on Sept 3rd, 2021!

Long awaited live action Resident Evil Reboot movie has now wrapped up its filming, and has received the official theatrical release date of September 3rd, 2021 as the real life outbreak effects reduce with virus containment, patient recovery and vaccination measures continue worldwide.

The upcoming Resident Evil origin story movie that is being directed by 47 Meters Down and The Strangers: Prey at Night’s Johannes Roberts has officially finished filming ahead of its 2021 premiere.

Being different than the previous Alice centered movies, and animated/CGI movies, the plot focuses on the fan favorite characters from Resident Evil series.

Set in 1998 “on a fateful night in Raccoon City,” the Resident Evil movie will star Kaya Scodelario (Maze Runner) as Claire Redfield, Hannah John-Kamen (Ant-Man and the Wasp) as Jill Valentine, Robbie Amell (Upload) as Chris Redfield, Tom Hopper (The Umbrella Academy) as Albert Wesker, Avan Jogia (Zombieland: Double Tap) as Leon S. Kennedy, and Neal McDonough (Yellowstone) as William Birkin.

Roberts had previously said in a statement that “I really wanted to go back to the original first two games and recreate the terrifying visceral experience I had when I first played them whilst at the same time telling a grounded human story about a small dying American town that feels both relatable and relevant to today’s audiences.”

It would be interesting to see how the movie turns out in comparison to Resident Evil 2 Remake, as the remake has helped to regain the horror image of the series instead of being action focused. The Alice centered movies were fun to watch but the original characters didn’t get enough attention. Roberts’ vision seems to be favorable towards the game characters so there’s a hope of an actually good RE movie.

Here’s why CGI films performed better than the Alice centered Resident Evil Movies (Opinion / Analysis)-
