Fans of Resident Evil (the video game series, not the live-action series that are very loosely based on said games) might be aware Resident Evil: Death Island will release pretty soon in theaters. In fact, Japanese audiences will see this CGI horror anime film on July 7, 2023. So what about those of us outside of Japan, or who don’t care for movie theaters? Well, you don’t have to worry about that. Sony Pictures Home Entertainment has us covered there. Don’t believe me? Then why not watch the official trailer for the anime film for yourself below, and revel in the Resident Evil goodness?

Resident Evil: Death Island will get that home video release on July 25, 2023. That’s 2 and a half weeks after its theatrical debut, which is pretty quick, mind you.
