It is noted that the scriptwriters of the new Resident Evil movie, Welcome to Raccoon City, are big fans of the video game on which it is based, or at least, they have done a lot of research on it, They have included a detail that the most geeky fans will love.
As you can see in the new video released by Sony about the film, which introduces the character of Jill Valentine played by Hannah John-Kamen, the writers have included in Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City one of the most infamous phrases, and most remembered, of the video game saga.
In one of the scenes, the characters are seen in a restaurant, when Tom Hopper’s character tries to put a sandwich in his mouth, and Jill takes it off and clarifies “it’s Jill’s sandwich”, remembering that mythical phrase from the original game of resident Evil pronounced by Barry Burton about Valentine almost becoming “Jill’s sandwich”, narrowly escaping danger.
In this new featturette about the character, the actress who plays her, Hannah John-Kamen, describes Jill as a “tough chick”, while her co-star, Hopper, considers her to be “a little crazy”, two descriptions that fit perfectly with the original character of the video games.
Like the video game with the same name, Welcome to Raccon City works as a spin-off of the Resident Evil saga in theaters, and as a way to give a new beginning to this franchise starring Milla Jovovich that already seemed a bit burned in its passage on the big screen.
Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City premieres on December 30, but it is not the only project on the vampire saga that has been released in 2021, as Netflix launched an animated series in June, Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness.
