Legendary Picture has released a new trailer for Dead Rising: Watchtower, which is a film adaptation of the hit zombie video game. The movie is set to be released online on Crackle, and just because it’s not being released on the big screen doesn’t mean it’s not going to be an entertaining movie. I think it looks like a bloody fun zombie flick.
The cast includes Jesse Metcalfe (Dallas), Meghan Ory (Intelligence, Once Upon a Time), Virginia Madsen (Sideways), Dennis Haysbert (24, Men, Women & Children), and Rob Riggle (Let’s Be Cops, 21 Jump Street).
Dead Rising: Watchtower takes place during a large-scale zombie outbreak. When a mandatory government vaccine fails to stop the infection from spreading, the four leads must evade infection while also pursuing the root of the epidemic, with all signs pointing to a government conspiracy. Politics, public paranoia, and media coverage play an important role in the story’s narrative.
The Dead Rising game franchise has been a big hit and has sold over 7.6 million copies worldwide. The movie will start streaming on Crackle on March 27th.
