Dead Rising: Watchtower, the upcoming movie based on the Capcom zombie action game series, will be making its debut on Microsoft's Xbox One and Xbox 360 consoles. The film will go live on March 20 via the Crackle app for both consoles.

Xbox owners will be able to watch the movie one week before it debuts March 27 on the other platforms that are supported by Crackle, which is Sony's free streaming video service. Dead Rising: Watchtower is actually a prequel to the events in the game series, as a zombie outbreak seems to be put under control through the use of a vaccine. As is the case in most zombie flicks, the vaccine doesn't halt the undead for very long.

It looks like Dead Rising: Watchtower will use many aspects of the game series, particular the ability for the character to fashion some unique weapon mashups. The cast of the film includes Jesse Metcalfe, Dennis Haysbert, Virginia Madsen, and Rob Riggle.
