Here's your first look at the Dead Rising movie (and Rob Riggle as Frank West)

Dead Rising Watchtower, the made-for-digital movie based on Capcom's zombie franchise, is coming to Sony's Crackle video service on March 27, and today we get our first look at the Dead Rising movie in action. There's even a taste of the movie's Frank West, played by comedian Rob Riggle.

The Dead Rising movie looks like it stays true, for the most part, to the video game's setting. The game's zombie prevention drug Zombrex looks to play a big role in the film, as do Dead Rising's quirky psychopaths. And it looks like Dead Rising Watchtower's protagonists are capable of whipping up some DIY weapons, like the Sledge Saw from Dead Rising 3 that actor Jesse Metcalfe is hoisting aloft.

Also, Servbots.

Dead Rising Watchtower stars Meghan Ory, Virginia Madsen, Dennis Haysbert, Harley Morenstein, Keegan Connor Tracy, Aleks Paunovic, Rob Riggle and Jesse Metcalfe. The digital movie will debut on Crackle, which is available for PlayStation and Xbox platforms, as well as PC and mobile devices.
