Must Watch: Japanese Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li Trailer!
Within only two months of each other, Fox will release live-action adaptations of two of the most beloved Japanese franchises - Dragonball and Street Fighter. We've already seen how awful Dragonball looks, but until today, we haven't seen much from Street Fighter. The official site has debuted a Japanese trailer for Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li which you can view below. This trailer doesn't actually look that bad, which is quite a relief considering everyone was worried we were going to get another repeat of the Van Damme movie from 1994. But alas, they may actually have created a fairly entertaining movie!
