Footage from Silent Hill Revelation 3D premiered recently at Comic Con, but the film was in a difficult position, as the footage debuted in between presentations of other, much bigger films.
Now the trailer for this Silent Hill sequel has gone online, and it suggests that this sequel is a lot more effects-heavy than the Christoph Waltz-directed original from 2006.

Or perhaps Konami is just jealous that Capcom will soon collect yet another Resident Evil licensing package when they’ve only nabbed one. (Hadida has the right idea; he produces both franchises.)
