Based on the prequel to the original Resident Evil which came out for the GameCube in 2002, now planned for an HD upscale this January.
The Story: The film takes place the night before the infamous Arclay Mansion Incident. The S.T.A.R.S. Bravo Team is investigating a series of murders in the Arclay Mountains, nestled in Raccoon City. The investigation begins on one of Raccoon City's most iconic trains, the Elliptic Express, where rookie officer Rebecca Chambers does her part. However, the train is riddled with the walking dead and other creatures. Not only that, but prowling around the train is a wanted war criminal, former U.S. Marine Corps Second Lieutenant Billy Coen, who was found guilty for the murder of 23 innocents in an isolated African village. The two eventually find themselves working together as they delve deep into investigating the train.
Meanwhile, Umbrella Incorporation's scientists Albert Wesker and William Birkin are scrambling to cover their tracks after the train accident leaked the T-virus all over Raccoon Forest (setting the scene for the Arclay Mansion incident), forcing them to send the train at hyper velocity to remove any trace of leakage or witnesses.
Rebecca and Billy survive the train crash and find themselves at a training facility owned by Umbrella, which happens to be another resting ground for other bio-organic killing machines. Deep into investigation, everyone finds out that the cause of their woes lies in the reanimated corpse of former leading Umbrella scientist James Marcus, who was once thought dead after Wesker and Birkin assassinated him under orders by the company's president Oswell E. Spencer. Reborn via the T-Virus, Marcus plans for ultimate vengeance: the end of Umbrella and the death of millions.
