Official US Poster for Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li
Not long after the Japanese trailer for Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li first hit a week ago, the official US poster for the film has been unveiled today as well. Fans of the Street Fighter games will definitely want to take a closer look at this poster, if only to admire it's fairly unique design. Unlike SlashFilm, I actually think this is a very cool poster that's not as bad as he's saying. I agree that the floating faces really make it look bad, but that fighting silhouette is pretty badass. It's at least eye-catching and I'm sure most people who walk by this at a theater will stop to take another look. What do you think?
Thanks to the fan site Kristin Kreuk Web for first digging up this poster. Once we have a high quality version, we'll update the image below. For now, take a look below and let us know what you think!
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!

the figures are pretty badass but the faces are just a bad idea. they should have just stuck with the shadows of the characters and called it quits. would have been more appealing.

I think its a great idea, looks good even tho the movie looks everything but good.

Poster looks garbage just like the movie.

The best posters are simple and satisfying. This one has an awkward 3-color scheme and a horribly cheesy photoshop feel. At least I wasn't looking forward to the movie.

They should also have put "Some fight for Wee Baby Jesus" on the poster too

Seriously, this is the shittiest poster I have ever seen in modern cinema. If at all possible it's actually worse than the first power they put out. And shouldn't the other shadow be Chun-Li since she's the one fighting Vega?

I think it's pretty cool.

They should have just left it with the silhouettes that would have looked bad ass, but the floating heads just ruin everything.

The poster fails as much as the movie

The heads just make it look too busy. It's a mess.

This will be another Punisher: War Zone that gets pulled after 2 weeks. It will be on DVD by Easter.

Out of all those movies, Romeo Must Die has been his best work to date... and that's only his earliest movie! 0_0!!!

i admit that the poster looks iight, but nobody will be able to take a woman in the lead role of a street fighter seriously. the odds of this beating the jonas brothers 3d concert come february are very, very...very slim

Poster is rockin'. I like it. "Punisher: War Zone" was highly underrated. I enjoyed that one too and will buy the Blu-Ray.

would have been better if they had only siliouettes.

I honestly don't think Fox can do ANYTHING right any more. Honestly. Sincerely. Everything they do is garbage, they are cursed. Everything they touch instantly becomes trash. Street Fighter Dragon Ball X-Files The Simpsons Family Guy Myspace Fox News Channel Futurama Reality Television The whole Watchmen court case Max Payne Live Free or Die Hard The Day After Tommorow the list goes on I mean c'mon, this is the studio that brought us CinemaScope, possibly the greatest tool known to film, why now does everything they do suck? They used to be good. But now, they suck harder than anyone ever.
