We have previously seen the official trailer of Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness that gave us an idea of what we can look forward to upon release. Now, Netflix has given us a better insight into the new series set in Capcom’s horror universe by providing its opening clip.
The three-minute footage shows the Mad Dogs military team witnessing the crash of their comrade’s helicopter. Instead of following orders for standby, the team goes against protocol to hunt something on the ground, only to wind up at the end of a bazooka fired by a civilian. No zombies can be seen in the reel, and it’s likely that the streamer is saving the best part of the action for the actual run.
Originally planned to be a movie, Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness is now an animated series directed by Eiichiro Hasumi. It will feature two different outbreaks and star the iconic Leon and Claire duo following the zombie takeover in Racoon City as per the Resident Evil 2 Remake, with Nick Apostolides and Stephanie Panisello returning from the game series to voice their respective characters.
The series will start streaming worldwide on Netflix on 8 July 2021, but it’s not the only Resident Evil adaptation in store for fans. Apart from an movie reboot titled Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City, another live-action Netflix series starring two Wesker kids is also in the works.
