Dead Rising: The Movie

This news kind of came out of nowhere. While we've all been awaiting Capcom's Dead Rising 2  videogame, Capcom has gone ahead and created a Dead Rising movie.

See the trailer HERE

Unfortunately, the movie does not appear to have any of the elements that made the game interesting. None of the characters from the first game look like they'll appear, and from what I can tell by the trailer the story doesn't even take place in a mall.

According to Kotaku.com, "The movie is set in an alternative reality in which areas effected 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. . . . The movie will be released this year on Xbox LIVE and via the official site."

The film is directed by Dead Rising game designer and Mega-Man creator Keiji Inafune.
