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, 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, the CGI-animated feature takes the zombie action to a whole new level with its ground-breaking visual effects and thrilling new storyline.
Capcom hosted a sneak preview of the game during a panel and press conference, open to the public, at San Diego Comic-Con International. During this event, producer Hiroyuki Kobayashi (associate producer of Resident Evil: Apocalypse and video game producer of Resident Evil 4 and Devil May Cry 4) and director Makoto Kamiya (special effects director of L: Change The World, Godzilla, Mothra and King Ghidorah: Giant Monsters All Out Attack) presented the worldwide debut of the film’s revealing two-minute theatrical trailer and answered questions.
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. Seven 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 undead, the horrific disaster is about to repeat itself.
