While this year seems to be all about the book-to-movie adaptations, more and more video games are being mined for their cinematic potential. Three months after learning that Legendary's Digital Media and Sony's online video platform/studio Crackle would be making a 'Dead Rising' movie, we now have the full cast and the first plot details.
Zombies are still cool, and video game-adapted movies are still all the rage. So, it was only a matter of time before the immensely popular zombie video game series Dead Rising was mined for cinematic gold, and it'll be the first film to emerge from Legendary's digital media branch.
A CG trailer for Dead Rising 3 reminds us just what this series is all about: carnage, goofiness and the most awesome makeshift weapons ever cobbled together out of necessity.
