Sony Pictures, CAPCOM introduce Resident Evil: Degeneration

Mumbai: Seven years after the destruction of Raccoon City, the war against the zombies rages on in Resident Evil: Degeneration, a co-production of CAPCOM and Sony Pictures Entertainment Japan (SPEJ) based on the popular video game and film franchise.

Making its theatrical debut this fall in Japan and coming to DVD, Blu-ray High-Def and PSP in North America later in 2008, this all-CGI animated feature takes the zombie action to a new level with its visual effects and new storyline.

SPEJ and CAPCOM hosted a sneak preview of Resident Evil: Degeneration during a panel and press conference, open to the public, at San Diego’s Comic-Con International in San Diego on 25 July in the San Diego Convention Center. During this event, producer Hiroyuki Kobayashi and director Makoto Kamiya presented the worldwide debut of the film’s revealing two-minute theatrical trailer and answered questions about Resident Evil: Degeneration.

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 Corporation’s stock plummeted. This serious blow to the business giant resulted in its complete dissolution. 7 years later, at an airport somewhere in the United States, on an ordinary autumn afternoon, a zombie is unleashed. Now, in an airport beginning to fill with the non-dead, the horrific disaster is about to repeat itself.
