Gross Nightmare Trailer for ‘Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City’
“We have to stop Umbrella!” Sony Pictures has revealed an extra 60-second trailer for the new Resident Evil franchise reboot called Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City. We posted the first official trailer just last month, but this “Nightmare” trailer gives us a better look at all the gore and creatures and craziness going on in this town. Set in 1998, this thrilling new Resident Evil origin story explains the secrets of the Spencer Mansion and Raccoon City. It follows a group of survivors in the city who band together and try to take down Umbrella and stop this evil before it gets out. This new movie stars Kaya Scodelario, Hannah John-Kamen, Robbie Amell, Tom Hopper, Avan Jogia, with Donal Logue and Neal McDonough. There’s some seriously disgusting shots in here, which is the whole point – it’s going to be one bloody, nasty Resident Evil movie with all the R-rated gore they can pack in. Might want to wear a raincoat to the cinema.
