Writer/Director Johannes Roberts' Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City Heads Home On Feb. 08


So how did the Umbrella Corporation’s massive underground research facility in Raccoon City come to be?   That question is answered on Feb. 8 with the three-SKU home entertainment packaged media rollout of writer/director Johannes Roberts’ prequel and reboot of the Resident Evil film franchise, Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City.

The ARR comes in at 74 days and domestic box office receipts currently stand at a disappointing $16.9 million, which makes plans for additional theatrical releases in the series dicey.  

The film opened theatrically on Nov. 26 (after several delays) and it was quickly followed by a Dec. 21 online option, which pretty much limited any theatrical chances going forward … the trick will be, did streaming, plus box office revenues make any future releases in the series viable?

As for SKU configuration, Sony Pictures Home Entertainment will be sending home stand-alone DVD and Blu-ray editions, plus a 4K Ultra HD/Blu-ray Combo Pack buying option.  

Bonus features, which are limited to the Blu-ray and 4K Ultra HD/Blu-ray Combo Pack selections, include a trio of production featurettes — “Replicating the DNA,” “Cops, Corpses and Chaos” and “Zombies, Lickers and the Horrors of Resident Evil.”
