The iconic computer game Resident Evil initially hit the shelves back in 1996, and later it went on to spawn a huge and popular franchise of its movies, sequels, novels, comics, and much more. However, with the Japanese horror franchise slowly approaching its 25th anniversary, all the fans out there will be getting a new, hefty television series. Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness will now be hitting Express.co.uk and Netflix has some lowdown on the new show.
Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness Netflix Release Date
Certainly, the streaming platform Netflix has yet to share the release date for Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness, and therefore, the service has now confirmed the whole series will be coming out in the year 2021. Moreover, this show will be dropping in one go at some point in the next year, with all of its episodes arriving for all the viewers to binge throughout.
Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness will probably be a CGI anime rather than a live-action, paying tribute to its videogame origins at the same time. Netflix has announced Capcom’s Hiroyuki Kobayashi – who thereby helped to bring the other Resident Evil projects to life will be now producing and supervising the Infinite Darkness.
What will be the cast of Resident Evil Infinite Darkness?
The cast details of Infinite Darkness have still yet to be confirmed for the series, but Netflix has said lately that the iconic characters such as Leon S. Kennedy and Claire Redfield are now going to be appearing. However, as it provided the huge fanbase and all the facts, the show is now going to be on Netflix, with some hefty names that could soon be attached to the project.
So, there have been 6 parts of Resident Evil movies to date that all have all been written and produced by Paul W. S. Anderson and, for now, most notably fronted by Milla Jovovich as Alice. However, its oldest actors have been appeared in the big-screen outings and have included Oded Fehr, Sienna Guillory, and Ali Larter.
What will happen in it?
There has been no word till now on the plot of its new series just yet, but Express.co.uk will certainly update this whole article when any more information comes out lately. Nonetheless, Netflix recently has said that Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness will now be more of a “horror series with a sci-fi twist.” While the whole streamer teases: “By adding a little suspense into some dynamic action scenes, this series will somehow reveal a Resident Evil world unlike anything has seen earlier.” Therefore, this new anime is likely to pay heartfelt tribute to its origins, and all the fans could also be able to see the references to its previous titles in the franchise.
Will there be a trailer for Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness?
Most importantly, Netflix has recently dropped a trailer in September 2020 announcing that the show was all in the works. However, its CGI teaser sees a glimpse of its character shining a torch in the darkness on a spooky house all that appears to be abandoned. As the whole trailer goes on, its character seems to be Claire as she enters the house only to be greatly greeted by the strange sounds as a bat flies past her face and tries to startles her. But she also happens upon a series of strange metal cylinders on the floor before all the stumbling across a dead body. So, shortly before its trailer ends, Leon appears and then shoots dead a zombie as he seemingly saves another character in the series.
So, certainly, it looks like all the classic elements from Resident Evil are already there, with its fans likely to be champing at the bit for some more to come. However, there is no dialogue, but only some creepy music that suggests its voice actors may not have been cast yet. Therefore, a fuller trailer is now likely to be dropped closer to its release time with some more scenes.
