New Resident Evil Movie Reboot Poster Calls Back To RE4

Resident Evil Movie RE 4 poster

A new Resident Evil movie is finally set to release later this year and the awaited film has set itself apart from adaptations of old with filmmakers’ assured adhesion to the video game source material. While only a small peek has been revealed about the production thus far, unofficial set photos and an adequately star-studded cast have conjured plenty of excitement around the upcoming release. Fanning the flames of hype is an all-new poster for the film that features a fitting callback to the series’ fourth main entry.

Seen above, actor Chad Rook, who plays Richard Aiken in the Resident Evil movie, shared the new poster which prominently features an ominous red forest setting. This image may be familiar with fans of the RE series as it re more-or-less recreates a cover variant for Resident Evil 4, which also prominently displays a red-hued woodland. If it doesn’t ring a bell, this cover was originally only released in the PAL region, with a special white version saved for its inaugural Nintendo Wii port.

While this is a fun nod to one of the most beloved RE games in history, the Resident Evil movie itself is taking inspiration from the first two games in the series. Director Johannes Roberts has suggested as much on several occasions, teasing the adaptation is full of unsettling scares meant to recall the visceral survival horror experience of the original games rather than the Milla Jovovich-starring action films we’ve come to know so far. With less than six months left before the new reboot releases, it’s likely we’ll get a proper first look sooner rather than later.

The Resident Evil movie is set to release on September 3rd, 2021.
