These were apparently taken from the trailer that will be included with the Resident Evil Extinction dvd. Judging from the fact that Leon and Claire are in it (and it takes place 7 years after the Raccoon City incident), it would appear this movie will actually tie into the games, not the live action movies. If it was tying in to the live action movies, well, 7 years after the Raccoon Incident, the world would essentially be dead.

Looks like I've got another version of Leon to cosplay, too.

yep...this is indeed's capcoms version of AC...but again I still believe that is a good thing. looks promising...but I'll feel better once a trailer is out.

Unless the guy who leaked these pictures leaks the trailer online too, the Resident Evil Extinction dvd will be released on January 2nd. And I'm sure not long after then, someone will post the trailer online.

Here's the full trailer.

It's, well, a whole lot of nothing, really.

If anything, for cosplayers it shows a new costume/outfit for Claire (casual-wear) and a new jacket for Leon. :)

Considering the flack Capcom's been getting regarding RE5 (though it has died down since the initial unveiling), I wonder if anything similar will happen with regards to the plane crash scene in Degeneration.

Definitely need some better shots of Leon's new jacket and outfit as a whole.

I just watched the trailer...and it looks quite cool. This is the RE movie I'm going to see in theaters.

no your not. its straight to dvd.

also, totally lame to bring back zombies a year after RE 4. That was the whole point of 4 was to move beyond the dead beaten horse of "ZOMG" zombies!! Luis even said that there were samples of the T virus in labs in madrid. meaning that not only was the cause of zombieitus well known, it was supposed to be gone as well. assuming this is the T virus.

Oh well I guess there really isn't a shred of originality or backbone left at capcom.

But RE4 didn't move past zombies. For all intents and purposes, the villagers WERE Zombies, in everything but name. They all run up to a point, then stop, and shamble towards you in an all-to-familiar fashion. They weren't especially intelligent, occasionally tossing things at you. In reality, I'd say crimson skulls from the REmake were worse than any of the faux zombies of RE4.

In my opinion, if they were going to make a big hub-bub about making RE4 without zombies, then making the main enemies of the game act almost exactly like zombies, they probably should've just made the game with zombies in the first place.

except they talk, use weapons, surrounding techniques, react with pain to areas of their body that are shot.

honestly did you play the game? they were not as scary as zombies, but they were a welcome change of pace.

Actually i know alot of people hated RE4 because of them. Honestly, it basically described the downfall of umbrella in a short paragraph. After playing the game, i no longer call RE4 and RE5 Resident evil, i call it trouble in spain/africa.

Yeah, the talk... barely.

Use weapons, ineffectively.

Surrounding techniques... like zombies.

React with pain... until they lose their heads.

*yawn* Bring back the zombies.

Could we maybe, I don't know, discuss the movie?

I thought it was a nice touch that, not only is Leon using his handgun from RE4, they used the same sound effect of the gun firing from the game.

Simmaria

yes lets bring back creatures that are impaired at first sign of water, or a ladder.

by actually using sentient enemies you could potentially have something that was more of a threat then a lumbering pile of decaying flesh. but no, lets keep the re series and hell all of the game world stuck in 1998. thats a much better idea!

You haven't played the REmake, apparently. Get back to me when you have.

Anyway, I'm excited for the movie, especially since its more "back to its roots". It has a distinct Resident Evil feel to it. Awesome!

I wonder if this movie takes place in France since for some reason the outfit Claire is wearing makes me think of something someone would wear if they went there.

Maybe its the fan boy in me but anyone thinking a Cloud/Tifa thing is gonna happen between Leon/Claire? (awkard situations or maybe getting a lil to close for comfort)

Simmaria & Pliskin: stop the bickering, 'k? jeeez.. :untrust: Keep the thread on-topic and discuss the movie.

If it does come out on DVD first, would it be Japanese-import first and then the US version eventually?

probably be done in english with japanese subtitles since lately i've noticed some games they've made that come out in japan are in english with subtles (yes i know its not a game) I really doubt this is coming out to the movies (if it does then it'll probably be in 3D) but hey we just gotta wait.

actually every RE game has been done in english. so its very likely that this will be only english as well even if it is released in japan first.

and pliskin, i played remake, your crimson heads are deafted by placing an end table in front of them. You lose again.

and its people like you who will drive the series into the stale boring ground by wanting the same thing over and over. zombies on a plane, oh joy! maybe samuel jackson can voice a new character!

At this point, it's anyone's guess. However, the fact that this trailer was on the Resident Evil Extinction dvd would certainly seem to suggest that it will be coming out in the US eventually. Also, the trailer referred to it as "Resident Evil: Degeneration." It's only called "Resident Evil" in Europe and the US. So I'd say it's pretty definite that it'll be coming out over here. Whether it releases sometime after the Japanese release or at the same time, there's no telling.

actually every RE game has been done in english. so its very likely that this will be only english as well even if it is released in japan first.

Except the Devil May Cry series was English only as well, and the anime used Japanese voice actors. So it's entirely possible that this movie will use Japanese voice actors as well, and then be dubbed to English for a release overseas.

i'm overly excited for the movie. I've been waiting for it for over 10 years. This to me, is how the movies should of been done.

Simmaria, chill out. It's people like you that make movies like Paul Anderson's possible. thanks for that.

I am talking about the trailer, namely, how good it is to have Resident Evil actually be Resident Evil again. To be honest though, I think most of this thread is going to veer off-topic, since we don't exactly know much about the movie.

yeah id like for you to explain that one to me. considering how the third movie was written well after RE 4 was released, and then he really had no connection to the game world but still kept it umbrella and t-virus focused. something I have pointed out to disliking, if you've been reading anything I say at all.

and archleon, thats a good point on the movie, it might be JP voiced. but I do have the RE 4 movie, "Incubate" that came out in Japan and that still used English voice overs with JP subtitles.

Simmaria:
I'm not saying your opinion, but your "give me something totally new, rather than a different approach to the meat of the franchise" perspective. But as you pointed out, your elitist attitude contradicts that. But as a side note... it seems like you can't really "discuss" anything intelligently without coming across as a complete sarcastic and instigating dick. So I think I'll just go back, as you said, to not reading anything you say at all.

I hate the Paul Anderson movies with a passion, btw.

Arch:
I believe Resident Evil 4D was in Japanese, so it's not definite that the new CG will be in English, but I would think it would be since the games were and subtitled for jp audiences. But who knows. Either way, it'll be dubbed for the US release if it comes to DVD or BlueRay, I'm sure. Much like Advent Children, as it's been compared to.

Who would you cast for voices?

Archelon
12-18-2007, 08:43 PM
Indeed, 4D Executer was in Japanese, though the fact that that was a theme park ride may have had something to do with it. Considering the movie was in 3D and the chairs the people sat in moved, it's possible they figured it would be too difficult to read the subtitles. *shrugs*

As for voice actors, ideally, Capcom would get the voice actors from the games. Allyson Court shouldn't be a problem, as she does a lot of stuff with Capcom aside from voice acting, such as motion capture. I would think it wouldn't be too difficult to get Paul Mercier to return as well. Though I'm a fan of Paul Haddad, since Mercier voiced Leon in RE4, I think it would be more consistent to have him voice Leon in this movie.

Having said that, Capcom isn't too consistent with its voice actors, and even actors who have done several roles (or the same role in several different games) have been replaced by others. Look at Richard Waugh. He voiced Wesker in RE0, CODE: Veronica, and RE4, yet they got someone else to voice Wesker in Umbrella Chronicles. Same thing with Sally Cahill, Ada's voice actress. She voiced Ada in both RE2 and RE4, but someone else took over for UC. So it's anyone's guess, really.

you clearly didnt read anything in the first place and just like to make more blanket statements. first I love paul andersons RE, then im just contradicting. please if your going to make a statement have the decency to back it up.

and capcom seriously needs to get on the ball with consistent voice actors. It would be just weird at this point to hear a new leon and claire.

I didn't say that you loved Paul Anderson's RE (who's not reading now), I was saying that a change for the sake of change (or change for the sake of art) attitude is what a lot of the movie supporters seem to have. get over yourself. really.

Arch:
Aside from game voice actors, if it was dubbed in the US for the DVD.. who would YOU chose? :)

Haven't posted in a million years, I'll be seeing/riding the Biohazard 4d executor during my trip in two weeks. I will report with photos...maybe, if I log on again after being absent for a few years.

Degeneration looks great, appears to be taking place in an Airport, I assume some sort of outbreak on a plane brought it to the area of the airport, like that movie outbreak or 3 monkies. This is how I liked the RE movies to be rather then that so called "Resident Evil" stuff hollywood has made.

Is that even still around? I know there's the building that's been designed to look like the mansion from RE1 now, but that's something entirely different from 4D Executer.

Hey yeah Arch, how are you?

Yes according to the Japanese website they still have the ride going in at this theme park/mall area called Mosaic in Kobe, Japan. I double checked with the Japanese site of the theme park and it is still there. It costs 500 JPY or about $4.50 USD to ride. I'll let you know more when I return on how it was.

Edit again:
Apparently the mansion was shutdown. ah
not the mansion but there's another theme thing I know you'll love:

I'm doing all right, thanks. Anyhoo, that's pretty awesome that they're still offering the ride. And, sorry, but I don't know where the mansion is.

Swinging back on topic, one thing I'm curious to know is if this will be a BluRay exclusive or not. Capcom is making the movie in collaboration with Sony Pictures, after all. Advent Children Complete will be a BluRay exclusive, but I'm not sure if that's Sony or Squenix's doing.

Most likely blu ray since alot of the film industry is trying to get people to spend money on blu ray since it holds more data and all that wonderful stuff

I read somewhere that it will def. be on BlueRay (maybe exclusive?)... but I can't find the article... but that's exciting either way.

Thinking about VAs from the US... Gillian Anderson's voice, in my mind, might make a good Jill Valentine.

the RE 4D ride... i think they had moved it from another park recently to the Mosaic.
