Capcom’s global head of research has decided to branch out. With a shoestring budget, and a guerilla filming mentality, Capcom’s Keiji Inafune has written and directed a film based on the Dead Rising series. It was filmed in Japanese, and it will be dubbed in English, French, Spanish and Italian for a worldwide release.
The story revolves around zombrex, a drug that can suppress the zombie outbreak in infected people. Then something happens, then something else happens- it is a movie about zombies and the numerous ways to kill them. Check out the trailer, there is a wheelchair that turns into a wheelchair of death. Plot was obviously not a primary motivator.
The movie will be released in eight separate parts online for free. No word yet on what medium it might choose- Xbox Live, PlayStation Network, or maybe just via a website- but we should know soon. Capcom has yet to issue a release date, but that might be a good thing following the announcement that the Dead Rising 2 game has been delayed from August 31 to September 28.
Check out the trailer below, but be warned, it is gory. That should probably be a given for a movie based on a game that was based around how many zombies you could slaughter in interesting and creative ways.
Warning: This trailer may not be suitable for all ages.
