Originally scheduled for September 3, the movie has now been moved back to November 24. While Sony hasn’t given any official reasons as to why it was delayed, Variety notes that Marvel is currently also expecting to release Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings on September 3, suggesting that the former may be trying to avoid a clash.
Set as a prequel beginning before the catastrophic breakout, Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City brings back to the silver screen some of the franchise’s most beloved characters, including Claire and Chris Redfield, who’ll be played by Kaya Scodelario and Robbie Amell. Joining the duo will be Hannah John-Kamen as Jill Valentine, Avan Jogia as Leon Kennedy, Tom Hoppe as Albert Wesker, and Neal McDonough as William Birkin.
Elsewhere in entertainment, Netflix has acquired two Knives Out sequels for $400 million USD.
