This one is out of left-field for me. I hope THQ and the Saint's Row people are taking notes on how to do a proper media blitz. To get the hype train moving chugging along, Capcom will be releasing a Dead Rising
shortfilm titled Zombrex Dead Rising Sun
. For his directorial debut, Keiji Inafune is employing the first first-person action film.
Watching the trailer it even has the cheesy English dubbing and over the top violence you can expect from Japanese movies. This movie looks so bad it will be aweso
DeadRisingSun.com has all the information you could want on this feature film.
