Netflix Portugal has posted the trailer for the upcoming Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness CG movie. It will feature Leon and Claire in lead roles.
Capcom hasn’t announced any new Resident Evil CG movie but they have worked on three of them in the past. The most recent one was Resident Evil: Vendetta that launched back in 2017. The other two are Resident Evil: Degeneration and Resident Evil: Damnation.
If you are a fan of the Resident Evil games, these movies are pure fan-service that are full of action, virus outbreaks, and crazy bio-weapons. Almost every movie has starred Leon while the first one also had Claire. The most recent one had Leon, Chris, and Rebecca and it ended on a cliffhanger.
Judging from the way Capcom is interested in making these CG movies that appear to coincide with a new mainline game’s launch, a new Resident Evil movie is reportedly releasing in 2021. This will be called Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness and will be out in 2021, or the year when Resident Evil 8 is releasing for PS5, Xbox Series X, and PC.
The trailer for Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness was leaked early by Netflix Portugal. It might make its debut on Netflix which has previously released older CG films like Resident Evil Vendetta.
It is important to mention here that this movie is separate from the Resident Evil TV show that is in development at Netflix. The story details for this TV show were recently shared by Netflix confirming that it will be set in a new Raccoon City and feature Wesker’s children in the lead role. This is a live-action TV show while Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness is a CG movie.
