The opening scene was on Twitter by horror enthusiast and insider Dusk Golem, although he did mention that he’s not the actual source of the video.
RE3's opening cutscene, obviously do not watch if you do not wish to be spoiled. Source of it is not me, but I'll stop tweeting RE3 until it's review time, and probably I'll play the Resistance beta with people: https://t.co/0UR9IzvDCO

The opening scene shows Umbrella Corporation and the game’s main protagonist trying to end her life due to being affected by the T-Virus.
Capcom officially announced the remake of Resident Evil 3: Nemesis back in December of last year during PlayStation’s State of Play broadcast.
Resident Evil 3 is set amidst the nightmarish outbreak of the T-virus, a biological weapon developed by the pharmaceutical company Umbrella Corporation. The game marks the debut of Nemesis – a towering humanoid bioweapon designed for both brutality and high-functioning intelligence – whose dogged hunt of S.T.A.R.S. member Jill Valentine made him an icon of the Resident Evil™ series. Armed with an arsenal of high-powered weaponry and wrapped in a black suit to hide his mutilated features, Nemesis will maim, pulverize or destroy any obstacle on the path to his target.
Jill’s harrowing escape takes place in the panic-stricken hours leading up to and following the events of the acclaimed best-selling Resident Evil 2. Intense combat and puzzle solving combine to deliver the heart-pounding final chapter of Raccoon City’s collapse. The horrific settings from the original game and new content come to life as never before with RE Engine, previously utilized to create the acclaimed Resident Evil™ 7 biohazard, Resident Evil 2 and Devil May Cry™ 5 with high-definition graphics and modernized gameplay mechanics.
Resident Evil 3 Remake launches globally for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on April 3. The Raccoon City demo is available now across all platforms, and a open beta for the game's multiplayer mode, Resident Evil Resistance, goes live next week. Those interested can already pre-load the Resistance beta.
