Sony Pictures Entertainment began streaming a trailer on Friday for the Resident Evil: Vendetta (Biohazard: Vendetta) CG anime film, which reveals that the film will open in the United States this summer.

The trailer is the same English-dubbed trailer that Kadokawa streamed in December, but the new video has English text.

The film is the latest full-length CG anime film based on CAPCOM's Resident Evil (Biohazard) horror game franchise, and it will open in Japanese theaters on May 27.

The film will have a completely original story, and will feature characters from multiple games in the series, including Chris Redfield, Rebecca Chambers, and Leon Kennedy. CAPCOM producer Hiroyuki Kobayashi (Resident Evil 4, Sengoku Basara) is supervising the project.

Takanori Tsujimoto (The Next Generation -Patlabor-, Ultraman X) is directing the film at Marza Animation Planet, with a script by Makoto Fukami (Psycho-Pass, School-Live!). Kenji Kawai (Patlabor, Ghost in the Shell) is composing the music. Takashi Shimizu (Ju-on, live-action Kiki's Delivery Service) is credited as executive producer. Kenji Shibasaki is handling the sound design, Hiroyasu Shinohara is producing, Kosei Sugimoto is the associate producer, and Kei Miyamoto is the co-producer.

In a collaboration between the film and Italian motorcycle company Ducati, Resident Evil: Vendetta will feature a scene in which Leon fends off an enemy riding Ducati's newest model, the XDiavel.
