We’ll admit to still being a little skeptical about Dead Rising: Watchtower, the upcoming direct-to-streaming film based on the Dead Rising franchise. That said, this new trailer suggests the team at Sony‘s Crackle service is probably onto a good thing – and that the casting of Rob Riggle as Frank West is perfect.
We’re also given a good look at some fan-favourite weapons (is that you, Sledge Saw?), and of course, there’s plenty of splattered zombies all over the place.
…that said, the trailer’s not exactly being showered in compliments. Frank West looks like he might be making more of a cameo appearance rather than being the big star, with this early look focussing on Jesse Metcalfe’s as-yet unnamed character.
Dead Rising: Watchtower hits Crackle from March 27th, and makes its way to “other digital services” after that. Remember, some outlets are choosing to show the film as a short, episodic series rather than a movie-length premiere, so keep an eye on your local guides.
