Yesterday, we shared a look at a teaser trailer that was released to promote Netflix’s upcoming live-action series based on the Resident Evil video game franchise, and also interviewed Resident Evil showrunner Andrew Dabb. Some eagle-eyed fans noticed a QR code in the teaser that, when scanned, led them to a second teaser trailer. We have now put both Resident Evil teasers together in the same video, and you can check them out in the embed above. If you already watched the first teaser and want to jump right to the second one, skip to the 60 second point of the video.
The first season of Resident Evil will be released through the Netflix streaming service on July 14th.
Here’s the simple description for the series:
RESIDENT EVIL: A live action, scripted series building on Capcom’s legendary video game franchise starring Lance Reddick as Albert Wesker. Nearly three decades after the discovery of the T-virus, an outbreak reveals the Umbrella Corporation’s dark secrets.
And here’s some more information:
Building on one of the most popular, best selling survival horror video games of all time, “Resident Evil” will tell a brand new story across two timelines, both following the daughters of series antagonist Albert Wesker in the present and future. Nearly three decades after the discovery of the T-virus, an outbreak reveals the Umbrella Corporation’s dark secrets.
In the first timeline, fourteen-year-old sisters Jade and Billie Wesker are moved to New Raccoon City. A manufactured, corporate town, forced on them right as adolescence is in full swing. But the more time they spend there, the more they come to realize that the town is more than it seems and their father may be concealing dark secrets. Secrets that could destroy the world.
Cut to the second timeline, well over a decade into the future: there are less than fifteen million people left on Earth. And more than six billion monsters — people and animals infected with the T-virus. Jade, now thirty, struggles to survive in this New World, while the secrets from her past – about her sister, her father and herself – continue to haunt her.”
For every type of Resident Evil fan, including those joining us for the first time, the series will be complete with a lot of old friends, and some things (bloodthirsty, insane things) people have never seen before!
In addition to Lance Reddick (The Guest) as Albert Wesker, the series also stars Ella Balinska (Charlie’s Angels), Tamara Smart (Artemis Fowl), Siena Agudong (Upside-Down Magic), Adeline Rudolph (Chilling Adventures of Sabrina), and Paola Nuñez (Bad Boys for Life).
