Watch the Dead Rising film's debut trailer

"How bad will it get?"

Dead Rising: Watchtower, the film based on Capcom's open-mall zombie series, has received its first trailer.

Starring comedian Rob Riggle (The Daily Show, 21 Jump Street) and Academy Award nominee Virginia Madsen (Sideways), Dead Rising: Watchtower will debut on 27th March on Sony Pictures Television's streaming service Crackle. Other stations will air it episodically.

Director Zach Lipovsky (Leprechaun: Origins) said he wanted to make the movie like "Indiana Jones with zombies" in terms of tone.

It looks... not very much like Indiana Jones at all, what with its depressingly bland cinematography. The opening ad for zombie medicine satirising pharmaceutical companies isn't bad though. Sleeping Dogs scribe Tim Carter penned the script, so hopefully there will be some clever ideas behind the otherwise tired looking carnage.
