Resident Evil: Vendetta To Get U.S. Showing This June

by Robert Workman


We’ve been seeing quite a bit of Resident Evil: Vendetta, the new CG-animted film from Capcom, as of late, but one thing we haven’t seen yet is whether or not the movie will get U.S. distribution. Thanks to Fathom Events, however, we’ve got a better idea of when we’ll be able to see it.

In a special event coordinated by Fathom, Park Circus and Sony Pictures Worldwide Acquisitions, Resident Evil: Vendetta will get a special one-night-only showing on June 19th at theaters across the United States. Tickets for U.S. screenings are set to go on sale at the end of this month, March 31st, exclusively on the Fathom website.

Vendetta is the third installment in the CG animated film franchise, following the release of Resident Evil: Degeneration in 2008 and Resident Evil: Damnationin 2012. It features a voice cast that includes Matt Mercer as Leon S. Kennedy, Erin Cahill as Rebecca Chambers and Kevin Dorman as Chris Redfield.

“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.”

It doesn’t appear that the movie will get a wide release in the U.S. or Canada outside of that, although it’s likely to get a home release video soon thereafter, just as previous Resident Evil movies have gotten. For now, all focus is on the forthcoming showing, which should no doubt bring fans in droves to theaters.
