Four New Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li Photos!
Our friends at ComingSoon got their hands on a small batch of rather kick ass photos from the upcoming Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li. We haven't seen much from this film besides a few photos previously and we're patiently awaiting the first trailer. Everyone is still wondering if this will actually turn out any good? Who knows, but since these don't do much to change our mind yet, we're still going to say no. The one and only thing that is certain about this Street Fighter movie is that Kristin Kreuk looks deliciously bad ass as Chun-Li. I just hope she lives up to her good looks with some great action, too.
Thanks again to ComingSoon (hence the watermark) for the photos. You can click any of them below to see a few more. We might see an official trailer for Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li by the end of the year.
Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li is being directed by ex-cinematographer Andrzej Bartkowiak, of Romeo Must Die, Exit Wounds, Cradle 2 the Grave, and Doom. The script for this 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 currently has Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li set to arrive in theaters on February 27th, 2009.

Why is it that all of these fighting movies (Mortal Kombat, Street Fighter, DragonballZ, etc...) look the same. Poorly shot, cheesy poses, ugh! This looks soo shitty.

I'll withhold my opinion in the hopes that these are just bad set photos that don't reflect the film in motion. Hangin' on by a thread at this point.

The fact that I am a Street Fighter fan would definitely propel me to see whatever else is out that week

This looks like it'll be a piece of crap.
BahHumbug on Dec 2, 2008
This looks NO BETTER than the first street fighter movie. It's just lacking the star power... Okay, that was harsh... I don't know guys. This looks like purist-type movie. I don't think it'll draw any new fans (DOA anybody?).

i dont think they're THAT bad. in fact, im kinda excited

i thought chun li is asian? even make lucy liu, kelly hu, and any other hot ass asian actress play her part is even better.
UrMomIsHot on Dec 2, 2008
lol...i am so not paying money for this. i may not even waste bandwidth to download it either.
Matt Suhu on Dec 2, 2008
These have to be set photos, not screenshots. If they turn out to be actual segments of film, this is gonna be a letdown.
McChunlisonberg on Dec 2, 2008
hahaha... hell yeah I am paying for this... paying someone to NOT RELEASE IT... please save the screens and equipment the wear and tear of playing this crap

This looks craptastic, I mean like Megaforce craptastic...

"Everyone is still wondering if this will actually turn out any good?" Alex, that wasn't a question proper.

its going to suck but still better than dragonball
lo on Dec 3, 2008
What the hell! Still no pictures of vega, charlie, or bison?!?!
Mightymax on Dec 3, 2008
I don't think the pictures don't look that cheesy,it looks cool to me but we have to find out if this Street Fighter movie works out the money in the box office. We need to see some pictures of M Bison,Vega and Charlie come on. There is also some news about the King Of Fighters movie starring Will Yun Lee,Maggie Q,Sean Faris and Ray Park, BRUCE ACOSTA

Wow, people are judging a lot from a few photos...lets wait for a trailer and then we can call it crap, ok?

Dion Lam is one of the best stuntmen out there, he's good on wire work and skilled enough to be an assistant to the famous martial arts choreographer Yuen Wo Ping, so i hope the fighting will be a good enough reason for me to watch this film.
andrew on Dec 3, 2008
I would bet my money that it won't be great, but not bad either
vu on Dec 3, 2008
Please, this movie looks like it's going to suck more ass than Herbert the Pervert. This movie will rock as much as having Jean Claude van Damm playing Guile, oh wait...
Brak on Dec 3, 2008
@#12, What do you mean? Kristin Kruek is asian. At least part asian. She may be Canadian, but part of her ancestry is Chinese.
JL on Dec 3, 2008
I know I try to be open minded about movie ideas but this movie is going to suck much @$$.
Malcolm Edgecombe on Dec 3, 2008
Looks as good as 1994's Double Dragon movie.
avoidz on Dec 4, 2008
I've had the pleasure of actually seeing the promo reel (no, sorry Alex, I can't send a link!) for this and, believe me, it actually does look SO much better than the first movie, and than these pictures make out. The action choreography is fantastic. I hear they've yet to sign a deal with a distributor though, so who knows what will actually happen with it.
jillinthebox on Dec 8, 2008
UGGGGG!!!! OMG these pictures look awful, I already want to start crying. Kristen has a pretty face, but damn, whats up with them chicken legs. NO BODY!! They shoulda made her eat a sandwich or something. I hope for dear baby Jesus the movie is better than I already think its NOT going to be. If they turn my kidz away from SF, I will never forgive them for this!!!!
