On June 19th, Fathom Events will be bringing Resident Evil: Vendetta, the third in the CGI franchise, to theaters for a one-night event. To celebrate this upcoming release, the first clip from the film has made its way online and it shows the destructive zombie-killing teamwork of Chris Redfield and Leon Kennedy. While not as stylized as the Paul W.S. Anderson Resident Evil films, this scene definitely illustrates the precision and deadliness of the franchise’s two iconic protagonists.
The film is produced by Marza Animation Planet (Space Pirate Captain Harlock), executive produced by Takashi Shimizu (The Grudge), written by Makoto Fukami (Psycho Pass) and directed by Takanori Tsujimoto (Bushido Man).
Fathom Events CEO John Rubey explains:
“We are thrilled to bring ‘RESIDENT EVIL: VENDETTA’ to the big screen for its U.S. debut. This sequel is even scarier and more thrill-inducing than the previous titles, with mind blowing CG animation that should be seen on 40-foot screens with the highest quality sound and visuals to further enhance the fan experience of this beloved franchise.”
Tickets are on sale now for the one-night event via Fathom Events.
