Back in February we learned of a summer 2023 premiere plan for Resident Evil: Death Island, the next entry in the CG-animated Resident Evil movie series. Now a new trailer has arrived along with news of a July 7 Japanese theatrical opening.
The Resident Evil: Death Island film is directed by Eiichiro Hasumi (Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness), based on a screenplay by Makoto Fukami (PSYCHO-PASS).
Here’s how Sony describes it:
D.S.O. agent Leon S. Kennedy is on a mission to rescue Dr. Antonio Taylor from kidnappers, when a mysterious woman thwarts his pursuit. Meanwhile, B.S.A.A. agent Chris Redfield is investigating a zombie outbreak in San Francisco, where the cause of the infection cannot be identified. The only thing the victims have in common is that they all visited Alcatraz Island recently. Following that clue, Chris and his team head to the island, where a new horror awaits them.
