Leon Kennedy goes full John Wick in clip from Resident Evil: Vendetta

Leon Kennedy: "Can I copy your homework?"

John Wick: "Sure, just change a few things so it's not obvious."

Alright, I'm sorry I hopped aboard the meme train there, but come on. Leon has clearly been studying up on Keanu Reeves' gun-fu (opens in new tab), what with his sideways gripped pistol held close and tight to his chest (which, yes, I know is a real style of holding a gun) plus all those sweet spins, kicks, and punches.

In case you were confused, this is a clip from Resident Evil: Vendetta (opens in new tab). Unlike the live-action films starring Milla Jovovich, this movie does take place in the same universe as the games, and is a canonical pre-cursor to Resident Evil 7 (opens in new tab). It will premiere in Japan on May 27, but select US theaters will also have a showing in June. To see if and when a cinema near you will be showing the film, check the official Fathom Events (opens in new tab) page.
