Check This Out: Another, Better Street Fighter Movie Poster

January 21, 2009

Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li Poster

We were just sent a brand new poster for Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li - and considering the last two posters they've revealed have been pretty bad, I think most people will be quite happy to see this one. Maybe? Besides the face of Kristin Kreuk, this also features some sort of Phantom of the Opera looking guy combined with Wolverine. I know it's the character of Vega, but still, it seems like they're trying to steal some of the X-Men Origins: Wolverine hype. I doubt this poster will have any impact on the buzz, but it's still cool to see something a bit better. Speaking of which, is anyone even going to see this?

Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li Poster

Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li is directed by ex-cinematographer Andrzej Bartkowiak, who directed Romeo Must Die, Exit Wounds, Cradle 2 the Grave, and Doom previously. The script was penned by up-and-coming screenwriter Justin Marks, who also penned screenplays for Masters of the Universe and Voltron. Hong Kong fight choreographer Dion Lam, who previously worked on The Matrix Trilogy, Spider-Man 2, and all of Bartkowiak's previous films, is handling the fight sequences. Fox is debuting Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li in theaters everywhere on February 27th. See you in theaters!

    Isn't this a fan made poster? I'm pretty sure its been floating around the net for a while
  • MagnoliaFan
    I'd rather see this than Dragonball: Evolution. Am I Right?
  • joshmc
    Is this film set in ancient China?
  • A great poster does not make a movie great. I think this'll sink quicker than the Titanic. I am just worried that if this move makes a bit of money then all the dodgy fighting game movies will have a try. Final Fight? Mortal Kombat? Double Dragon? Celebrity Deathmatch? Any more?

    It seems like there's a mixed bag in this (rather people will see it or not) the reviews will probably be the same (mixed) As for Vegs looking like Wolverine, I don't think so. He looks like a pretty cool version Vega. Atleast the picture does.
  • jimmy
    this movie is already a failure avoid it
  • Otacon
    LOADS better than the previous poster. this is one beautiful piece of work
  • Spider
    I'm still checkin' this flick out. I'm never one to pass judgment by a single poster( or 3 ).
  • Blackstar
    How about passing judgement on the fact the whole premise is stupid? Street Fighter: The Legend of Beating People Up For No Readily Apparent Reason But you're right. It could turn out to be the next movie legend on the same par as Citizen Kane or Gone with the Wind. But I doubt it.
  • Badkarma
    i'll rent it first
  • Dorochey
    Why's everybody hating on this?! Friday flick written all over it!!!
  • Marianne
    This is a fan made poster. Granted its waaay better than what the studio actually put out, so props to the creator. Here's his site
  • edwina scaglione
    omg i can't wait to see this movie and i don't care what anyone elsa thinks about it .... the movie looks really good to me
  • Dyi
    The only problem that I have with this movie is that Vega is left handed. His claw is supposed to be on his left hand. @21~ Actually this has a story. If it is actually going by her background, this should (seems like it is) be before she joined the governement as an agent. It should take place a little after Bison murders her father. Which is why she trains to take him down. This is Chun-li's story; hence the tilte: Legend of Chun-li.
  • Noname
    its a fake.
  • miracle disease
    "bwahahahahaha" that's what the creator of that poster's been doing for the last 20 minutes of so... and i guess he thanked you alex for his art exposure... kudos!
  • marlin0814
    nope it's fox. after watchmen controversy and the recent string of crap they have put out i'm not seeing any fox films.
  • Shige
    Seriously, they could invent a time machine, bring back Da Vinci and make him paint a poster. The movie would still be a pile a of turd.
  • Lucas Moreira
    yeah, this poster is fake
  • Marqwest
    You can't polish a turd!
  • Fuelbot
    sorry guys. it's a fake.
  • Bruce Darren Acosta
    I have a feeling of this film not going to be a successful because of Fox is fucking bullshitting on not making money I have no idea if they can do a Street Fighter remake again or I don't know. So if The Legend Of Chun li works out well then they could have a sequel or a remake. Thank You. BRUCE ACOSTA AUSTRALIA.

    Fact: Video game movies tend to suck (thanx Uwe Boll!) Fact: The last Street Fighter movie was terrible. (Raul Julia deserved better!) My expectations for this movie isn't too great. That said... I will probably go watch this. Partly because Kristen Kreuk is great eye-candy. And partly because Chun-Li is one of my favorite characters from Street Fighter. Since most movies nowadays are just "reboots" of older stuff, like comic books, older movies, novels, and video games (originality is dead in Hollywood); this movie is basically just the continuation of a trend. Moreover, I get the feeling that whoever is producing this, is testing the "waters" to see if there's a market for a Street Fighter movie series. If this movie is successful, don't be surprised if a Ken/Ryu movie is in the works. And, against all better judgement, I'm intrigued by this being just a first in a series. Besides, Taboo from Black Eyed Peas is Vega... how awesome is that!?
  • zetsu
    vega is the coolest thing about this fucking going to be shit film,why the fuck did they pick chun-li for a streetfighter movie,ken & ryu would of been better choice of charactors surprised they didn't pick dhalsim,i want blanka the movie.
  • Merc
    At least Neal McDonough looks cool. Andrzej Bartkowiak is an ok director, Cradle 2 The Grave was good.
  • Susana
    haha that's so funny that everyone thought this was real. the only reason I know it's not real is because I followed the links in the comments people are leaving. Well, the poster does look pretty legit (and cool, too). and lol @ #6, 7, 8, and 10. sucky movies are sad. I hope this will be alright!
  • j money
    So the guy who directed the famed "DMX" film archive along with "Doom" is heading this one up huh? Hmmmm... Wonder what kind of movie this will be?
