If you’re one of those die-hard fans who regularly binge-watches the Resident Evil film series, your day just got better. This year, brace yourself for an epic journey with Milla Jovovich from Raccoon City to a nightmarish, zombie-infested world, now available in glorious 4K Ultra HD format and enclosed in captivating steelbook packaging that’s practically a collector’s dream.

Despite the significant deviations from the video game plots, Resident Evil managed to build a dedicated fanbase that consistently flocked to theaters for each new installment. This feat was particularly remarkable during a time when most video game adaptations fell flat at the box office. Resident Evil was a rare exception, a bridge between the gaming world and mainstream cinema that resonated deeply with audiences.
The franchise’s impact extends beyond the screen, as it has left an indelible mark on popular culture. The Umbrella Corporation, a bioweapon manufacturer responsible for a virus-induced apocalypse, has become synonymous with the quintessential evil corporation, embodying the shady dealings and malevolent methods often associated with corporate giants.
One initial hurdle for die-hard Resident Evil fans was the absence of protagonist Alice (played by Jovovich) in the video games. She was, in fact, a creation of screenwriter Paul W. S. Anderson specifically for the first movie. However, fans were appeased when beloved characters from the games like Jill Valentine, Claire Redfield, Chris Redfield, Leon S. Kennedy, and K-Mart were introduced into the franchise. The movies also featured notable talents like Michelle Rodriguez, Eric Mabius, James Purefoy, and Oded Fehr.
While the Resident Evil film series enjoyed substantial success, it’s been a different story for live-action adaptations in recent years. In 2021, the reboot “Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City” received a lukewarm reception in theaters. The following year, the Netflix TV series “Resident Evil” was canceled after just one season. However, the animated films continue to be appreciated by fans, keeping the franchise’s legacy alive.
The limited-edition Resident Evil Steelbook 4K UHD collection is set to hit shelves on November 21, offering fans an opportunity to relive the heart-pounding action and terrifying thrills of this iconic series in the highest quality available.
