When the primary trailer for the brand new Resident Evil film dropped earlier this month, it seemed like a tacky, costly horror flick with an…attention-grabbing soundtrack alternative. Lest you assume that was a mistake on the advertising and marketing workforce’s entrance for what’s meant to be the beginning of a six-movie sequence, it’s apparently not, as a result of the movie’s model of a “Jill Sandwich” joke—calling again to the unique Resident Evil recreation after she’s nearly crushed by a ceiling lure—is corny as hell.
Yesterday, Sony put out a personality trailer spotlighting Welcome to Raccoon Metropolis’s new cinematic model of the STARS agent, performed by Hannah John-Kamen. At one level, Jill snatches a sandwich from future sequence baddie Albert Wesker (Tom Hopper) and declares, “It’s Jill’s sandwich now.” It’s a groan worthy line to make sure, and but it weirdly suits? In any case, Resident Evil is a franchise that’s no stranger to cheese, particularly in terms of Jill as of late.
Outdoors of that, the vignette has a reasonably comparable tone to those targeted on Claire Redfield (Kaya Scodelario) and her brother Chris (Robbie Amell): weirdly edited and greater than just a little goofy. At one level, Hopper factors out that Jill’s just a little off, which the vignette merely will get throughout by displaying her pulling a gun on somebody simply face down on a desk after which asking what the worst solution to die could be. (The reply to that query could be your complete film?)
Ought to the movie comply with the arc of the video games and achieve success sufficient to warrant sequels, Jill will ultimately develop to be probably the most necessary gamers within the Resident Evil universe. What’s attention-grabbing about Raccoon Metropolis is the way it’s a mashup of the primary two video games, and Jill wasn’t featured in any respect in Resident Evil 2 as a result of Capcom’s Shinji Mikami believed on the time that she and fellow RE1-protagonist Chris could be too skilled to be afraid of zombies not lengthy after escaping the Spencer mansion. Mixing the 2 video games collectively has the potential to vary their characters in some fascinating methods going ahead.
Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon Metropolis releases in theaters on November 24.
