Resident Evil

Resident Evil (Known as Biohazard in Japan) became a household name. It started with a PlayStation game in 1996 and birthed 23 games, with two more on the way. The game started development when Tokura Fujiwara first conceived it as a remake of his 1989 Capcom game, Sweet Home. When Resident Evil became a roaring success Resident Evil 2 and 3 followed soon after. It is no surprise that the game franchise kept growing game after game. Resident Evil is celebrating its 20th Anniversary.

Inspired by the game, Paul W. S. Anderson wrote and produce five Resident Evil movies which star Mila Jovovich as the beautiful femme fatale, Alice. The movies are loosely based on the games but do not follow the main storylines and Alice was an original character created just for this series of movies. The movies are Resident Evil (2002), Resident Evil: Apocalypse (2004), Resident Evil: Extinction (2007), Resident Evil: Afterlife (2010) and Resident Evil: Retribution (2012) and this year a sixth movie Resident Evil: The Final Chapter (2016) will be released in December.

Capcom also released three animated movies, which are tied in with the Resident Evil games, two of which star Leon Kennedy, Claire Redfield, and Ada Wong. The movies are Biohazard 4D-Executer, Resident Evil: Degeneration and Resident Evil: Damnation. A fourth movie will be released in 2017.

In August Capcom released a 20th-anniversary video that explored Chris Redfield’s evolution, from his first appearance to current date. This week a second video about the rookie cop turned presidential agent, Leon Kennedy, was released. We share the videos with you but be warned, it contains spoilers as the videos explore their stories from beginning up to this year.
