I didn’t even know a new animated Resident Evil film was coming so I was thrilled to see the Resident Evil: Vendetta trailer. Quietly, the previous two Resident Evil films are much more in line with what fans of the video game series than the movies.
Vendetta looks to continue that trend as well. Right away the film has my interest by featuring both Chris Redfield and Leon Kennedy. And everyone’s favorite medic S.T.A.R.S. agent Rebecca Chambers.
RESIDENT EVIL: VENDETTA is the third installment in the massively popular CG animated film franchise, following Resident Evil: Degeneration (2008) and Resident Evil: Damnation (2012). This not-to-be-missed event includes an exclusive introduction from the cast and behind-the-scenes footage.
Derived from Capcom’s Resident Evil, one of the bestselling video game franchises of all time (72 million + copies sold), RESIDENT EVIL: VENDETTA features the fan-favorite characters Leon S. Kennedy (Matt Mercer), Chris Redfield (Kevin Dorman) and Rebecca Chambers (Erin Cahill).
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).
