Despite the extended Thanksgiving weekend, the reboot of “Resident Evil: Welcome to Racoon City” failed at the North American box office.
Terror for the Elderly debuted at a paltry $ 8.8 million in the first five days – below expectations.
In the international market, adaptation raised US $ 5.1 million, totaling a worldwide start of US $ 13.9 million.
It’s a lukewarm start for a production of $ 40 million.
The feature will hit national theaters on December 2.
Production will adapt the storyline of the first two games and, like the original, will take place in 1998 and feature the events of Raccoon City surrounded by zombies. Spencer Mansion and the Raccoon City Police Department will appear in the film.
The feature film received a high Rated-R rating (ages 17 and up) for “bloody violence and adult language”.
The cast also includes Kaya Scodelario as Claire Redfield, Tom Hopper as Albert Wesker, Avan Jogia as Leon and Lily Gao as Ada Wong, Neal McDonough as William Birkin, Chad Rock as that of Richard Aiken and Donal Logue in that of Brad Vickers.
In addition to directing, Johannes Roberts writes the screenplay alongside Greg Russo (“Mortal Kombat 2021”).
