No, it went straight to DVD and Blu Ray. It was released in April 8th of 2008. There was a plan for the film to have a limited theatrical release in April 2007, but it never happened.

No, this is only a remake of Day of the Dead, which is the 1985 sequel to the original Dawn of the Dead (1978).

Ving Rhames appears in Day of the Dead (2008) (V) and Dawn of the Dead (2004), but as two different characters. It's likely the studio cast him in Day to confuse audiences into believing their straight-to-video flick is a sequel to the popular Dawn.

Day of the Dead is a very, very loose remake of George A. Romero's 1985 film. It has a number of differences. The newer zombies are able to run and climb walls, unlike the lumbering zombies from Romero's film. The bunker from the original appears in only the last part of the 2008 movie. And so on. The newer film could be called a "reimagining," rather than a remake.
