Zombies take NYC & Los Angeles
Seven years after the destruction of Raccoon City, Leon and Claire are back as the war against the zombies rages on in Resident Evil: Degeneration, a co-production of Capcom Co., Ltd. and Sony Pictures Entertainment Japan Co., Ltd. based on the popular video game franchise.
Making its worldwide theatrical debut in Japan on October 18, 2008, Resident Evil: Degeneration will be screened in the U.S. at the New York City Horror Film Festival on November 13th and at a screening in Los Angeles on November 18th hosted by Fangoria (full details forthcoming).
Produced by renown gaming producer Hiroyuki Kobayashi and directed by Makoto Kamiya (exclusive interview), Resident Evil: Degeneration is a CG-animated feature film that takes the terrifying zombie action of the blockbuster Resident Evil franchise to a whole new level with jaw-dropping visual effects and heart-pounding suspense.
The “Umbrella Incident” that took place in Raccoon City ended with a missile attack ordered by the government intended to wipe out the deadly zombie virus. Following this catastrophe, the Umbrella Corporationâs stock plummeted, bankrupting the business giant. Seven years later, at an airport in the Heartland of America, a commercial airliner unwittingly delivers some deadly cargo. Now, in an airport beginning to fill with the undead, the horrific disaster is about to repeat itself.
