Resident Evil Movie Reveals First Poster, and social media is giving so much attention to it.
Resident Evil actor Chad Rook has revealed what seems to be the first poster from the upcoming live-action film reboot. The image is similar to the Resident Evil 4 PAL box art, featuring a forest over a red background. In addition, with several characters appearing in the film. It’s worth noting that this image has not been shared by the official Resident Evil Twitter account or Screen Gems. So fans should take this image with a grain of salt until it is confirmed as official. It certainly seems legitimate, however, and it definitely works well as a teaser for the film.

The poster can be found in the Tweet embedded below.
As a matter of fact, the poster does a great job setting the tone for the film. Firstly The coloring gives it a strong horror movie feel. Secondly, the presence of the character names should give audiences an idea that this reboot will be much different from previous Resident Evil movies. It’s a subtle poster, but one that should help build anticipation for the movie prior to its release later this year.

The Bottom Line
While previous Resident Evil films have played fast and loose adapting elements from Capcom’s video game franchise, the upcoming reboot seems to be much more faithful. Above all, the film will apparently cover the events from the first two games in the series, with a cast that reflects that fact.
Previous Resident Evil movies centered around the original character Alice, but the new film seems to be putting the S.T.A.R.S. team in focus, instead. In conclusion, long-time fans of the series should be very happy about that decision, and it will be interesting to see just how faithful the finished product will be.
Interestingly, Resident Evil will release in theaters on September 3rd, 2021.
