As the year pushes on, more delays are on the horizon. The latest is Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City. Instead of opening on September 3, the film has moved to November 24.
An official synopsis for the film has also been released, which seems to place the movie after Umbrella Corporation has fled. The pharmaceutical company deals in the bioweapons industry and is a key figure in the games.
“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, the townspeople are forever…changed…and a small group of survivors must work together to uncover the truth behind Umbrella and make it through the night.”
Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City stars Tom Hopper, Robbie Amell, Avan Jogia, Neal McDonough, Kaya Scodelario, and Hannah John-Kamen.
