We have only seen glimpses of Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness but now we're getting some awesome updates on the upcoming animated film. The official trailer and key art from the Netflix movie have just been dropped along with the anime's release date and some additional cast members.
The new trailer for Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness opens with soldiers on helicopters when something goes terribly wrong. The helicopters crash and although there are survivors, things are not quite what they seem.
One survivor is questioned by Leon S. Kennedy and he admits that he has nightmares of that day. Leon can relate as he points out that people actually get bitten and turn into monsters.
Interestingly, that horror has made it to the White House where Leon reunites with Claire Redfield. Can they keep the undead at bay and save the President?
In addition to the trailer, Netflix has shared the key visual for Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness. Check it out below.

New voice talents for Infinite Darkness now include Ray Chase as Jason, Jona Xiao as Shen May, Billy Kametz as Patrick, Joe J. Thomas as Graham, Doug Stone as Wilson, and Brad Venable as Ryan.
The official synopsis for Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness reads as follows:
"In 2006, there were traces of improper access to secret Presidential files found in the White House’s network. American federal agent Leon S. Kennedy is among the group invited to the White House to investigate this incident, but when the lights suddenly go out, Leon and the SWAT team are forced to take down a horde of mysterious zombies. Meanwhile, TerraSave staff member Claire Redfield encounters a mysterious image drawn by a youth in a country she visited, while providing support to refugees.
"Haunted by this drawing, which appears to be of a victim of viral infection, Claire starts her own investigation. The next morning, Claire visits the White House to request the construction of a welfare facility. There, she has a chance reunion with Leon and uses the opportunity to show him the boy’s drawing. Leon seems to realize some sort of connection between the zombie outbreak at the White House and the strange drawing, but he tells Claire that there is no relation and leaves. In time, these two zombie outbreaks in distant countries lead to events that shake the nation to its very core."
Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness will premiere on Netflix on July 8, 2021.
