The casting and costumes for this movie seems so all over the place. It just bothers me that it seems like they almost went out of their way to choose actors/costumes that don’t match with iconic characters.

It’s like making a Zelda movie and casting Link as a brunette wearing a suit of armor.

The real crime is Wesker without sun glasses.

Everyone says that it would look cheesy even tho Dr Albert Wesker is cheesy to an extent

Probably should have gotten someone younger and gave her the beret. The beret is ICONIC for RE1 Jill

ID: hc7l80k

I agree I love her RE1 look(I play with that costume in the 3 remake) but people say it looks unrealistic yet this movie look is even more unrealistic.

ID: hc7mwsw

Law enforcement, specifically swat and feds, wear berets all the time. Besides in a movie with zombies and bows, I would hope the beret isn’t the unrealistic thing that breaks immersion

Yeah Jill is supposed to be 22-23 in the first RE. The actress is 32 but looks even older than that in these screenshots. The hair, makeup and costume does not fit the character well at all

ID: hc7vnr1

Yup Claire is suppose to be 19 and Leon 21. The makeup and outfit is the biggest crime here

I feel like marvel and DC movies have proved that people won’t be turned off by more accurate outfits from video games to movies. There’s so many zombie shows and movies that range from grounded to outlandish. Resident evil stands out a bit because of its sci-fi elements, mutant enemies, and cartoonish villains, I don’t see why Jill with a beret and shoulder pads and Wesker in sunglasses at night would turn people off at all.

Wait is that supposed to be Jill? Why get Chris so right and Jill completely wrong?

ID: hc7plus

I always wonder why some movies these days will cast one role perfectly then do a 180 with others

ID: hc7vah6

That’s the thing that gets me the most. If you wanna have you’re own take it would be one thing but clearly the costume designer wanted to do that but only for Chris and just forget the other characters.

Is this what book readers feel when their favourite novels get adapted for the screen? Because I’m feeling hella salty all around.

Ps. Let’s remember to never to harass the cast and crew, it’s one thing to voice our opinions and/or complain, it’s another to be a complete and utter garbage human being and bully those involved.

This is why their argument of "the important thing is that she nails the character" is bullshit because they can at least give her a wardrobe and a style that somewhat resembles any of Jills in the games. Who the fuck was in charge of hai

and costume design?

They did my girl wrong…

This is why we can't have nice things.

I have zero hope for this movie.

She's the only character who looks that they not even tried to reproduce. And the others looks like a cosplay. Anyway, i don't care, smells like flop. i don't trust in the studio and the director.

People complained about Leon and Claire, but Jill is WAAAAAAAAAAAY worse than them.

ID: hc80d1x

Easily the worst of the four so fair.

Chris - Absolutely good, looks just like RE1 Chris, no real complaints.

Claire - I believe the only fix needed is just her hair. Give her a ponytail and done.

Leon - The hairstyle doesn't bother me but, the hair color absolutely does. Instead of having him have brown hair like in RE2 or give him a more blonde appearance later down the line, it's just black. It looks wrong. It looks like Carlos or Luis, not Leon.

Jill - I still don't see Jill at all. So much wrong with it. So much wrong really, it reminds me more of Rain Ocampo from the first RE movie.

14 : Anonymous2021/09/09 21:54 ID: hc8gkj1

She looks more like Sheva

They could have at least tried even slightly.

17 : Anonymous2021/09/09 23:19 ID: hc8ryds

They coulda gone for anything that looked far more closer to jill

18 : Anonymous2021/09/09 20:38 ID: hc85iih

My idea is that some people (directors, writers, whoever) want to put a spin on things to call them they're own.

Its beyond idiotic to take one idea that works, change a few things and ruin it because you want to be able to say "yes i did make that".

Thats my two cents since this isnt hard to do, just got too many people wanting to be steven spielberg

19 : Anonymous2021/09/09 18:26 ID: hc7m8r4

Was that fucking hard to at least give the actress the look she had in Ant-Man and the wasp?

Even the fucking beret... Anderson did a better work at least in characterization in his movies

They went full "Netflix time" with this

20 : Anonymous2021/09/09 21:26 ID: hc8cm58

Honestly, I'm genuinely surprised that Claire wasnt the one to be played by a black actress considering, in the last few years anyway, traditionally red haired characters are portrayed as POC.

The more I see, the more I think it’s gonna suck.

They said they didn't want "cosplayer" actors but in my opinion she wasn't the right actress to play Jill

ID: hc7pxm6

You use an existing franchise with an established fanbase and reward them with nothing of what they want and everyone looking different from the characters they know and love.

Might as well write their own RE side story, but everyone wants to have their cake and eat it.

ID: hc7nnoi

That argument fails. You can find an actor that can act and look the part thats an audition is for. Besides there castings filmakers go out of their way to nail but wanting an actor to look the part is the equlivsnt to a cosplayer?

23 : Anonymous2021/09/09 18:00 ID: hc7idhg

Jill doesn't even look prepped for a mission. Also I think they should have gone for somebody younger.

24 : Anonymous2021/09/09 18:56 ID: hc7qo80

She doesn't even look like a cop. The director said he didn't want to do cosplay yet this is the costume they went with.

25 : Anonymous2021/09/09 20:05 ID: hc80s5n

You’re totally right, they are SO lazy! Seriously, not even a cap like RE5?

26 : Anonymous2021/09/09 19:15 ID: hc7teq1

Looks nothing like Jill lol. Wtf were they thinking?

27 : Anonymous2021/09/09 19:11 ID: hc7ssys

I can’t believe people are defending this movie. The RE1 shots with the exception of Chris nobody even resembles their characters they just look like commandos and the Leon and Claire stills look like cheap cosplay in a student film. At least the Paul Anderson movie series knew it was garbage and leaned into it.

Wait not for real is that jill?

29 : Anonymous2021/09/09 19:57 ID: hc7zi0z

If I looked at the left and someone said guess what movie, never would I guess it’s Resident Evil.

I mean let’s not forget all the same studio and production companies that made the first series of films are making this new one so I’m not surprised it already looks like a bag of shit.

30 : Anonymous2021/09/09 18:18 ID: hc7l0tf

Horrible casting all around.

31 : Anonymous2021/09/09 19:16 ID: hc7thl2

I still think the re3 remake is the best version of her. She looks the best and her personality is perfect. Confident yet not coming off as arrogant. And she shouts and swears just like you’d expect someone to if they were stuck in that situation.

Also her cheesy jokes go well with her personality and are a great reference to the original cheesy script.

My personal fav being ‘Stars? I show you stars’ lol

ID: hc815qj

They could have cast the actual actors from the games that played Jill. Nicole Tompkins or Sasha Zotova are real people that exist.

ID: hc8axp9

True. Not like anyone usually knows these actors anyway. Maybe they were worried about the performances and want people with experience.

32 : Anonymous2021/09/09 21:52 ID: hc8gbm1

I’m not holding my breath for this. Until they actually do a videogame translation to live action right I have low expectations. I mean MK should have a been awesome after the opening scene… but nope.

33 : Anonymous2021/09/09 23:26 ID: hc8swzy

Looks like the director's cut outfit from RE1 but with less style & just a generic mainstream look instead.

34 : Anonymous2021/09/09 21:57 ID: hc8h0mp

Jill deserves better. Did they think no one would care since she hadn't been in a main line game in ages?

35 : Anonymous2021/09/09 18:55 ID: hc7qgwg

I don’t get it she is the furthest thing from Jill I mean it’s not like it isn’t obvious either.
