Current standards for zombie movies based on zombie games are pretty low, but at least Dead Rising isn't taking itself seriously. The first trailer for Dead Rising: Watchtower is out, and we're in for 90 minutes of slightly-above-low-budget zombie action. That's just the way I like it.

Heck, the movie's probably gonna be worth it for Rob Riggle's one-liners as Frank West.

The trailer also teases tons of fan service for series fans, especially when it comes to fighting back against the undead. Dead Rising's speciality has always been about ridiculous weapons that shouldn't be effective, and it appears Dead Rising: Watchtower will have that in spades.


Yep, I'm in. I've already got my beers ready.
