is one of those rare video-game franchises that actually have a series of well-received blockbuster movie adaptations. In fact, it has two wholly separate series. Here’s a chance to see the lesser-known, but no less excellent, CGI-animated series in theaters. Fathom Events is presenting Resident Evil: Vendetta
, the third installment in the Capcom-produced animated tie-ins. Veteran zombie hunters Chris Redfield, Leon S. Kennedy and professor Rebecca Chambers take on a sinister figure intent on using bioweapons on New York City in a film set sometime between the events of Resident Evil 6
and Resident Evil 7: Biohazard
. If you’re a fan of the game series but haven’t sampled the animated movie franchise, this is a great jumping-off point, and well worth the price of admission for those who oppose the evil Umbrella Corporation. June 19. Various movie theaters. Visit fathomevents.com/events/resident-evil-vendetta for local listings and more information.
7 and 10 p.m. June 19. Edwards Houston Marq*E Stadium 23 & IMAX3, 7600 Katy Freeway. Price varies by location; visit fathomevents.com
