Resident Evil Netflix series gets first two trailers ahead of July 14 release
Another year, another Resident Evil adaptation. This one doesn’t contain even a hint of a weird mansion or its underground biolab, or a police station where things have Gone A Bit Wrong. But, zombies, right?
The Netflix series will be debuting on July 14, telling the tale of Albert Wesker’s daughter as she fights through the zombie apocalypse her father, presumably, helped create. Lance Riddick is doing a good turn as Wesker in this first trailer.
There’s also this second one, which explains a little more of the backstory. They made the T-virus into an antidepressant, which is both believable as something Umbrella would do and a little on the nose in the modern world. Visuals look rather nice though, and nothing’s better than a terror-bear.
That one is only normally accessible through the official site’s in-universe information, which I thought I’d save you the bother of doing.
This marks yet another reboot for live-action Resident Evil, and yet another version of the universe to keep track of. As you can see with a quick scroll down to the comments, fans aren’t exactly slurping it up. Of course, you could just play the games if you want more of the games.
We’ll see how it all comes together on July 14.
