Sony Pictures has announced the Resident Evil: Damnation release date is October 27th, 2012 in cinemas in Japan (in both 2D & 3D). With a Western release date following before June 2013 on DVD and Blu-ray.
Resident Evil: Damnation is the second fully CGI Resident Evil movie, and is the sequel to Resident Evil: Degeneration, which ended up selling over 1.6 million DVD & Blu-ray discs worldwide. Once again, the movie will star Leon S. Kennedy as the protagonist.
This time around the movie takes place in an Eastern European warzone where bio-organic weapons are used. Leon must infiltrate the region alone, in the middle of a civil war. Even after the U.S. decided to withdraw from the small country’s battlefield, an order that applies to Leon as well, Leon stays behind in order to stave off a chain of tragedy. He must fight a harsh battle without allies in order to uncover the truth.
“The screenplay has been given far more work than its predecessor.” -Makoto Kamiya
The Sony Pictures‘ movie director Makoto Kamiya (who also directed Resident Evil: Degeneration) says we should look forward to it because “The screenplay has been given far more work than its predecessor.” Producer Hiroyuki Kobayashi adds “Please expect it’ll be fun.”
Here’s the Resident Evil: Damnation trailer.
It’s unknown if Claire Redfield will return to help out Leon. At the end of Degeneration both agreed next time they’d rather meet up “someplace a little more normal”, although in the Resident Evil universe what’s normal anyway! Right?
Are you looking forward to watching Resident Evil: Damnation?
