A new poster for Sony’s upcoming Resident Evil movie has been shared online by star Chad Rook, and it’ll rekindle fond memories for franchise fans. The promotional image shows a red woodland with the film’s logo layered on top, but it’s clearly been created as an homage to the PlayStation 2 version of Resident Evil 4. See for yourself.
Interestingly, the poster includes the names of the characters set to feature in the film. Among them are Jill Valentine, Claire Redfield, Leon S. Kennedy, Chris Redfield, and Ada Wong – so pretty much all the favourites. Chad Rook will play Richard Aiken, a member of the S.T.A.R.S. Bravo team.
The movie’s due out on 3rd September, and will stick more rigidly to the story of Capcom’s games. “With this movie I really wanted to go back to the original first two games and recreate the terrifying visceral experience I had when I first played them while at the same time telling a grounded human story about a small dying American town that feels both relatable and relevant to today's audiences,” director Johnannes Roberts said.
