Dead Rising, The Movie

We've come full circle. Capcom's zombie horror series Dead Rising is based on George Romero's zombie films. Now, the series is making the leap to live action.

The movie is set in an alternative reality in which areas affected by outbreaks are strictly quarantined, and those living in the area are coordinated off from the rest of the country. Two brothers George and Shin, hatch a plan to escape.


Starring actors Hiroki Yoshida and Hiroshi Yazaki, Shibyou Osen DEAD RISING is a live-action movie co-written and directed by Dead Rising designer and Mega-Man creator Keiji Inafune. The gory, blood-driven trailer features first-person-shooter style action, exploding heads and inventive wheelchair modification.

The movie will be released this year on Xbox LIVE and via the official site. Yeah.


    Looks retarded beyond belief, like it was shot by highschool students with a 5 dollar budget... why oh why are you wasting your time with this shit Kotaku, when a Uwe Boll movie looks better than this, that's how bad it looks.

    So its an adaptation of an adaptation. Something has to lost along the way.

    Considering its been filmed with a handheld camcorder, looks decent to me.

    But i agree with weresmurf, this make Uwe Boll look Oscar worthy. Just don't let him see this.

    " which areas effected by outbreaks..."


    I dont know what the hell this is, but its in no way Dead Rising.

    Its definately something...

    Sorry to dissappoint, but it wasn't an adaption. Capcom was sued for the reason that it was a ripoff of Dawn of the Dead, but the court ruled in favour of Capcom, stating that surviving a zombie outbreak in a mall is an idea that cannot be owned.

    That said, it certainly was influenced by Romero.

    Looks really bad :/
