Now Playing: Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City - Exclusive Chris Redfield Vignette Trailer

"Chris Redfield is a small town hero," says director Johannes Roberts. "And now, he's part of the Raccoon City police force… Chris has to become more than just the small town hero. He has to become this action hero.

"Umbrella Corporation has a virus and the virus infects the city," says Amell. "What's really cool about our movie is that it is very much an adaptation of the games. It's like I'm living in the video game, and it's really, really exciting."

The film stars Kaya Scodelario (Crawl, The Maze Runner) as Claire Redield, Hannah John-Kamen (Ant-Man and the Wasp) as Jill Valentine, Neal McDonough (The Flash) as William Birkin, Avan Jogia (Zombieland) as Leon Kennedy, and Tom Hopper (Black Sails) as Albert Wesker. Roberts wrote and directed the film.

All week, GameSpot will have a closer look at others from the upcoming Resident Evil movie. So far, we've already met Scodelario as Claire. Keep coming back every day this week to see a new video of another character from the film.
