to all those dissing the quality of the video, the makers were going for a dated gory factor found on the 78 dawn of the dead, and did that purposely, i would love to see this, but my 360 is still red ringed, and i really don't care, though subtitles would be nice...
Capcom Japan readies Inafune-directed Zombrex: Dead Rising Sun for distribution over Xbox Live; no word yet on North American release.
Capcom's original Dead Rising was so steeped in cinematic zombie history that the publisher was actually sued for copyright infringement by the producer behind the 1979 classic George A. Romero's Dawn of the Dead. Now the series is coming full circle, as Capcom Japan is making a live-action film based on its undead action game.
The publisher has set up an official Web site for the project, called Zombrex: Dead Rising Sun in English. The site includes a trailer showing off production values and gore solidly in line with the zombie subgenre's historical B-movie nature.
The film will feature creative continuity from the game, as Dead Rising director Keiji Inafune is helming the live-action adaptation as well. Additionally, Inafune reteamed with Dead Rising scenario editor Makoto Ikehara to create the film's story. According to Capcom's US blog, "the movie follows brothers Shin and Jouji who must escape an area of Japan that has been quarantined following the spread of the disease that turns everyone into zombies."
Don't expect this undead uprising to hit theaters anytime soon. The film will be distributed over Xbox Live in Japan later this year, and Capcom told GameSpot there's no word on a North American release of any kind yet, be it digitally distributed or theatrically.
It promises to be a busy year for the franchise, as Capcom today also confirmed that Dead Rising 2 would arrive on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC in 2010.
Can anyone suggest to the people making this to put in English subtitles? I'm deaf, and I would highly appreciate it if they did put in subtitles.
At 1:04 I thought that was the Seon's Grocery store psycho from the game! There I go again getting my hopes up for any way to relate this "movie" to the game...
i watched the trailer for this on the website and lmao. now wheres the real trailer because that was awful.
Oh. Great. Another zombie movie. What makes an entertaining game does not always make an entertaining movie...
anyone else see the problem with a guy in a wheelchair trying to fight zombies let alone "run" away from them? i mean he cant get up a flight of steps without a ramp or elevator. he's stuck on ground level with them at all times lol. maybe thats the appeal lol. i still cant stop laughing!!!!
Mmm, deliciously cheesy. It looks horrible, but i'll give it a spin...tis a shame there'll be no frank west.
A disease? I thought the cause of zombies in the Dead Rising series was a parasite? No matter. Let's hope this one is good, because most films based off games are somewhat lacking.
That has gotta be the lamest zombie movie trailer I have ever seen.... What's next? Japanese Madden?
@ GtownStripes That would be a fair comment if it weren't for the fact that it was about a trailer for a movie based on a game, such a project is doomed from the beginning and should never be confused with genuinely good movies.
looks like they really didnt care about the movie, and its pure fun. which makes good movies! i hope they wind up finding a way to translate it or get subtitles! id buy it!!!!!
that was a pathetic trailer... where did the nice movies go, like battle royale and ichi the killer?
If you read the full article it states that the director involved is wanting to keep true to most american style zombie movies, B-type movies. Before you bash me my case in point to this would be Evil Dead [even though its not exactly a complete zombie movie, but a kick ass horror movie series]. This is why the movie seems to look so low-budget. I love the idea of keeping true to the B-type movie look for zombie movies XD
Put enough monkeys in a room with a camera and they'll film Kurosawa, amirite? *sigh* I love bad Japanese films.... but.... that is worse than bad. Keep in mind this is coming from a guy who owns Death Trance and Machine Girl. At least it'll be better than live-action Death Note.
