Netflix's Resident
Evil Trailer
Has Weary Fans
All Saying The
Same Thing
By JASON CONNOLLY
To say that the live-action "Resident Evil" has been disappointing to fans would be a gross understatement. Yet, despite all of the criticism that fans have levied at the franchise over the past 10 years, there is yet another live-action "Resident Evil" project on the way, this time in the form of a TV series from Netflix.
The new "Resident Evil" trailer shows us that the Netflix series will be a radical departure from the films that came before, following two separate timelines set before and after the outbreak of a zombie apocalypse. Though the trailer clocks in at just over two minutes long, it perfectly captures the mixture of horror and action that has defined the "Resident Evil" games for so long.
Fans seem pleasantly surprised by the trailer, but given past burns, most remain cautious. One fan said via YouTube, "Is it just me or does this actually look...good?” While other fans remained wary, questioning, “Why am I not convinced about this show?"
