Fathom Events Announces One-Night Event For RESIDENT EVIL: VENDETTA This June Following May Wide Release

I couldn't tell you much about any of the Resident Evil films, or the games for that matter. I've only seen maybe four out of the what? Six...live-action movies from Sony?

Ugh...anyway, maybe one day I'll catch up. As for now, there's also been a trilogy of CG-animated feature films based on the game property as well dating back to 2008, and now the third, Resident Evil: Vendetta, is heading to select theaters in North America through Fathom Events for one night only on July 19 following its wide release on May 27. Fathom's June event is serviced in part with Park Circus and Sony Pictures Worldwide Acquisitions.

“We are thrilled to bring ‘RESIDENT EVIL: VENDETTA’ to the big screen for its U.S. debut,” Fathom Events CEO John Rubey said. “This sequel is even scarier and more thrill-inducing than the previous titles, with mind-blowing CG animation that should be seen on 40-foot screens with the highest quality sound and visuals to further enhance the fan experience of this beloved franchise.”

Nick Varley, co-CEO of Park Circus, said, “We couldn’t be more delighted to be working with our colleagues and longstanding partners at Sony Pictures to be bringing ‘RESIDENT EVIL: VENDETTA’ to cinema screens around the world. We know that the thrills, adrenalin, action and incredible CG animation that characterize this long-awaited sequel will be welcomed with open arms by audiences across the globe.”

The new film from Marza Animation Planet will feature fan-favorites such as Leon S. Kennedy (Matt Mercer), Chris Redfield (Kevin Dorman) and Rebecca Chambers (Erin Cahill). Shimizu Takashi (The Grudge) serves as executive producer with a script by Psycho Pass scribe Fukami Makoto Fukami, and with Bushido Man helmer Tsujimoto Takanori directing.

Tickets for Canadian screenings go on sale this Friday via Cineplex while Fathom Events will post ticket availabilty on March 31 for U.S. residents.
