Netflix Reveals Additional Teaser Art, Stills and Voice Cast of Leon S. Kennedy and Claire Redfield for RESIDENT EVIL: Infinite Darkness: "Known as the gold standard of survival horror games with over 100 million units shipped worldwide, Resident Evil is coming to Netflix for the year of its 25th anniversary. The original CG anime series, RESIDENT EVIL: Infinite Darkness, will launch exclusively on Netflix later this year.

The new anime series will be produced and supervised by Capcom's Hiroyuki Kobayashi, who has been responsible for bringing numerous titles in the Resident Evil series to life. TMS Entertainment, which has birthed various anime series like "Lupin the 3rd" and “Detective Conan,” is leading production, with Quebico, led by Kei Miyamoto (Resident Evil: Vendetta), in charge of 3DCG animation.

In the new teaser art, Leon S. Kennedy is pictured in a suit, a first for the “Resident Evil” series, holding a gun with a serious expression. Meanwhile, Claire Redfield is searching for something with a flashlight in one hand. This teaser art gives a glimpse of Leon and Claire in action, while a horde of zombies are headed towards one of the major sites of the series: the White House. The new stills of Leon and Claire show their coincidental reunion at the White House."

Storyline: "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."

Voice Cast: "Leon S. Kennedy will be voiced by Nick Apostolides, and Claire Redfield will be voiced by Stephanie Panisello, well known to fans as the voice actors from the reimagined Resident Evil 2 from 2019."

HANNIBAL FOR DINNER: Celebrate Five Years Since NBC’s Hannibal Concluded With New Book Examining the Show 

“A deep rumination on a show I’m really proud of. For fans or new fans, these essays will make  you think about what the show’s storytelling and representation really mean. Fannibals or even those new to Hannibal will find analysis and commentary that makes them think differently and more deeply about the show. A lot to savor here.” 

- Martha De Laurentiis, Chairman of De Laurentiis Company and Executive Producer of  Hannibal 

Summary: Bryan Fuller’s and NBC’s Hannibal only lasted for three seasons, yet it became a  critical darling and grew a ravenous fanbase that remains active five years after the show ended.  Hannibal is the very definition of a cult show, one that only grew in stature after its unfortunate  cancellation. Even when placed in context with Thomas Harris’s popular novel and Academy  Award-winning film series, Hannibal stood out as a singularly artistic experience. When it  arrived back on Netflix in the United States in 2020, it shot into the Top Ten and immediately  sparked discussion of a possible cast reunion and new seasons. Fortunately, academics had  already spent years writing scholarship linking Hannibal to changes in television production,  mythological interpretation, food culture, and pop psychology, and now there is an edited  collection that combines academic and insider production perspectives.  

In the wake of the show’s return to popularity through Netflix streaming, Hannibal for Dinner is  being published by McFarland & Company, Inc. To celebrate the show’s legacy and produce  groundbreaking scholarship, Doctors Kyle Moody and Nicholas Yanes have collected one-of-a kind academic articles and interviews in their manuscript, Hannibal for Dinner: Essays on  America’s Favorite Cannibal on Television. The book is a delectable taster for general audiences  and academics alike, great for dinnertime conversations of all type.  

Individuals interviewed for this manuscript are writers with Tom de Ville (writer for LexxUrban Gothic, and Lucky Man), Nick Antoscao (writer and creator of The Act, Channel Zero,  and Brand New Cherry Flavor), as well as Martha De Laurentiis (executive producer/producer of  Artic, Hannibal Rising, Red Dragon, Firestarter, and Silver Bullet). 

These interviews and academic essays explore the Hannibal franchise, its evolution, creatively  bold risks, mythology, a culture of killers, and how to be an entertaining host when having  friends over for dinner. (Well, the last one is a joke for the Fannibals.)
