Capcom has released an action packed trailer for their upcoming movie Resident Evil: Vendetta, based on their critically acclaimed Resident Evil game series. This CGI movie takes place in the same universe as the games, and has nothing to do with the live action movies.
Resident Evil: Vendetta is the third CG movie in the franchise, preceded by Damnation in 2012 and Degeneration in 2008. It takes place after Resident Evil 6, and will feature a new threat in the form of Glenn Arias, also described as the “merchant of death”. His devastating plan includes unleashing a terrorist attack on New York City using a trigger virus. The trailer shows Leon S. Kennedy and Chris Redfield in high-octane action, with zombies, explosions and mutated monsters.
Resident Evil: Vendetta is set to release on 28th May, 2017 in Japan, and will make its way to the rest of the world later.
