The beautiful city of Cape Town has been turned into a Zombie apocalypse for the new Resident Evil… luckily only through the magic of special effects!
Resident Evil: The Final Chapter has a new trailer and it’s all about Cape Town!
The movie was filmed in and around South Africa over a couple of months with the two biggest locations being Cape Town and Hartbeespoort Dam.
Empire Magazine wrote a short description of the trailer. “Milla Jovovich’s Alice, having somehow survived the onslaught of the infected in Washington, is inexorably drawn back to where it all began: Raccoon City, where the villainous A.I. known as the Red Queen (played here by Jovovich and director Paul W.S. Anderson’s daughter, Ever) offers her a chance to end it all with a cure for the T-Virus that has been causing all the problems so far.
Is it a trap? A treaty? Almost certainly the former, but Alice sees her chance to finally end the post-apocalyptic chaos once and for all. Featuring the likes of Ali Larter, Ruby Rose, Iain Glen and Shawn Roberts, and a visual style that appears seriously inspired by Mad Max: Fury Road
But the real reason we are loving the new movie and trailer is how Cape Town and Table Mountain feature as the backdrop for the entire movie… except they’ve been transformed into “Racoon City”.
Check out the trailer below and see if you can spot the beautiful (now Zombie infested) Cape Town.
Resident Evil: The Final Chapter is out on 24 February, 2017.
