"Witness the Beginning of Evil. "
— The film's tagline

Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City is a 2021 horror film directed by Johannes Roberts. The seventh film in Constantin Film's live-action franchise, this film is a reboot set in a new continuity separate from the prior universe overseen by writer-director Paul W.S. Anderson which ended with 2017's Resident Evil: The Final Chapter.[6]

The film is an adaptation of both Resident Evil and its sequel and borrows elements from the original games as well as the modern remakes.[7] The film stars Robbie Amell, Hannah John-Kamen, Avan Jogia, Kaya Scodelario, Tom Hopper and Neal McDonough.[8]


"Returning to the origins of the massively popular RESIDENT EVIL franchise, fan and filmmaker Johannes Roberts brings the games to life for a whole new generation of fans.

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.
