Big Batch of New Photos from Dwight Little's Tekken Movie!
Although we showed you an early trailer for this Tekken movie back in January, these new photos are still pretty damn cool to look at. They've been floating around the internet all day today at a lot of places, but I originally saw them at Twitch, although I should point out that io9 has a gallery with additional side-by-side comparisons between the movie and the video game. Here's the thing with this Tekken movie - these photos make it look awesome, or a least like an authentic video game movie. But why do I still feel like it's going to be terrible? I don't know. We're still not sure when the heck this is hitting theaters but take a look anyway!
Tekken is directed by Dwight H. Little of Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers, Marked for Death, and Anacondas: The Hunt for the Blood Orchid. It's based on Namco's popular series of fighting games, which first debuted in 1994. The story will follow Jin, who enters the "King of Iron First" tournament in order to avenge the death of his mother that he blames upon Tekken's powerful and controlling chairman, Heihachi Mishima. The screenplay was written by Alan B. McElroy of Spawn, The Marine, and the Wrong Turn trilogy previously. We don't have any US release info for this yet, but we'll still keep you updated!
