That Live-Action Tekken Movie Finally Gets an Official Poster
Tekken, as in the video game? Yep, I'm talking about the platform fighting game Tekken. You may or may not know, but Namco has been working on a Tekken movie for a while (we ran some photos in February). In fact, the whole thing is shot and in the can, just waiting to be released. Luke Goss stars as Steve Fox, Jon Foo stars as Jin Kazama, and it's directed by Dwight H. Little (Anacondas: The Hunt for the Blood Orchid). It's either a cult classic in the making or a huge piece of crap just like the Dragonball and Street Fighter movies from this year. Twitch just found the first official Japanese poster on the official website. Check it!
Before someone says something about Warner Bros releasing this in Japan, they're only distributing there. In fact, I don't think this even has a US distributor yet, but I'm not sure. "Set in 2039, the film promises non-stop high flying action as the greatest fighters from around the world come to compete in the last and greatest sporting event of all time, the Iron Fist Tournament." The fights were choreographed by Cyril Raffaelli (of District 13, The Incredible Hulk) and the script was written by Alan B. McElroy (of Spawn, Wrong Turn, The Marine). I don't have high hopes, but I'd like to be surprised. We'll keep you updated!
