That new Street Fighter movie has a Japanese trailer for you to uppercut! Hyuken! Hyuken!

Ahoy, squirts! Quint here. We got this message in about the new Street Fighter trailer... I made sure to rush over to the link and check it out... And it looks surprisingly not super shitty, but I couldn't spot CGI Raul Julia. Maybe they're saving him for the full trailer... The production value is much better than I expected and who knows? Could be fun, right? Below is the email we got with the link. Check it out!

Harry, I realize I'm one of maybe five people actually looking forward to this flick, but after FINALLY seeing some moving footage from this thing, I can at least comfortably say it doesn't look nearly as stupefyingly bad as Dragonball. See it in Japanese and in tiny Flash format at: http://streetfighter-movie.gyao.jp/ Call me... Shok Xone Studios

    by Shakes The Clown

    They should have made it look like the video game, have all the characters the fans love and have the Wachowski brothers direct it super-stylized.

    Don't forget the amazing subtitle

    by Larry Sellers

    The Legend of Chun Li. Looks like another attempt to make a "realistic" film from fanciful material. It's a goddamn video game--a FIGHTER at that. Treat it like a fucking video game and just fill in the gaps and tweak it so that the story isn't so stupid. M. Bison in a suit? Because real dictators don't dress in ridiculous military garb, right? Or does part of the story involve Bison being supplanted by his board of directors? I WILL ADMIT, though, that it's pretty bold to not include the more recognizable characters. Also the fight scenes don't look CGed or anything, so that's cool. But it's just so unnecessary and it looks colorless and boring. Dragon Ball looks way better than this.

    Yet another lame live-action attempt

    by Kurutteru Yatsu

    The thing about Mortal Kombat was that since the game used live actors, it didn't look that ridiculous when made into a film. SF on the other hand has a way more stylized exaggerated look that's simply never going to transfer well to the screen. Same with Dragonball. It's just not meant to be, folks.

    How did she get roped into doing this? At least this movie will have more flashy special moves than the "other" SF movie. She has her fireball, but looks like she is making ZERO effort to launch it. Just stands there looking serious and ZOMG FYRE comes out. I know this is Chun-li's story but come on, some other good guys in the movie would be nice. Even Dhalsim or something... anything.

    by RockLobster800

    was'nt expecting much to be fair, after the woeful van damme flick. at least that had Raul Julia to keep it afloat(he is missed)-but resting a film on the shoulders of the worst actress in a rubbish tv show, playing a character that nobody really cared about (where is the Ryu film? Why hasnt hollywood figured out he was the hero of the game?)and then coughing up a trailer with boring standard "dramatic montage trailer music" with the abrupt end so a soundbite can be delivered...I dont think I shall be watching this at any point myself guys.

    by Earthquake WestCoast

    Since I never played the video game, this has no emotional attachment to me. I just want to see the HOT Kristen Kruik beat up guys! :) But, why call it Street Fighter if they won't even give her the costume? The "Josie and the Pussycats" live action movie failed because they didn't wear the costumes from the comics or cartoon. Therefore, if Kristen doesn't wear the Chun Li costume, this movie will really fail.

    MIGHT BE A FUN FILM!

    by Earthquake WestCoast

    It looks like it can be fun! But, they shouldn't of called it "Street Fighter" if they weren't going to put her in the hot costume she wears in the game. They could of just made her a new character in an original movie that had nothing to do with "Street Fighter". But, like alot of films, it seems like they just wanted the name. Same with the new "G.I. Joe" film. Those aren't the Joes I remember.

    A little Japanese lesson

    by Dreamwriter

    A few people here are making fun of the announcer. A thing to realize, most Japanese syllables are a combination of a consonant and a vowel. Thus, to say the English word "Street" you have to say it like "Sutureeto" (though those u's can be prounounced silently). And there is only one sound in Japanese for "r" and "l" - it's actually halfway between the two letters.

I remember a mere seven years ago when people on these boards were saying Kristen Kreuk wasn't white enough to play Lana Lang. Now she's not Asian enough to play Chung Li. Leave my poor sexy little Space Monkey alone! At least she's trying to make a career for herself past teeny bopper Superman.

    by the milf lover

    which was just awful, even the Alyssa Milano hotness wasnt enough to make it remotely watchable.<p> I dont mind Kreuk, but she's just so wrong for Chun Li. They should have got somebody who can both act and fight, like Zhang Ziyi, then we'd have a decent action movie. And as somebody else pointed out, Black Eyed Pea guy as Vega is horrible casting. You want a good Street Fighter movie, just watch the end of City Hunter with Jackie Chan. <p> Also, are the characters gonna have their original names in Asia and the switched names in America like with the games?

    This movie will make Kristen Kreuk a star in...

    by Leafar the Lost

    ...direct to DVD soft-core porn movies. I am hoping to get her to do an "erotic thriller" where she does two lesbian, simulated, sex scenes. Of course, she will be naked, so she had better get some implants by then...skinny bitch...

    That's what I also remember hearing besides the "Hyruken" or "Haidoken" or "WHATEVER". Am I wrong, nerds?

    by soup74

    it's easy for us to watch this and think it looks like dog shit (which it does.) <br><br>but i dont think this movie is really expected to do well in the U.S.A... the asian market will eat this up though. especially with the american cast. It looks like this on purpose.

    Jackie Chan was a better Chun Li in City Hunter

    by Johnno

    Why not get an asian woman? What? Is it so hard to find a Chinese woman that can do kung fu now? Will seeing asian people do kung fu be too foreign for American box office??? What's the excuse this time??? <br><br>Anyway... no Ken... no Ryu... no sale... Just make me some more anime.

    It's obvious from her features. Some of you aren't very observant.

    Raul Julia made the first one bearable

    by RockLobster800

    he's like Langella in Masters Of The Universe...a good actor giving a great performance is an abysmal movie. and his "for me....it was tuesday" line is classic

    His evil monologue is even better. <p> 'I hoped to face Guile face-to-face on the battlefield, where we could engage each other in respectful combat. Then I would snap his spine. But why? Why do they still call me a warlord? And mad? All I want to do is to create the perfect genetic soldier. Not for power, not for evil, but for good. Carlos Blanka will be the first of thousands. They will march out of my laboratory and crush every adversary, every creed, every nation! Until the world is in the loving grip of the Pax Bisonica. And peace will reign and all humanity will bow to me in humble gratitude.'

    She needs to get nekkid before she gets old, or if she wants to work on A-grade movies.

    Kristen Kreuk won't do nude scenes, because she has...

    by Leafar the Lost

    ...no breasts. She has zero body fat, it seems, so her breasts are practically non existant. It would be like looking at the chest of a young boy (yuck). Get implants...

    Lana Lang starring in a Kung-Fu film =

    by TheGhostWhoLurks

    Flames on Optimus' Bat-Nipples.<p> What? They couldn't trick/blackmail/payoff Zhang Ziyi (or any OTHER Asian girl who actually knows martial arts) into being in this film? They had to hire a girl with about 2 ounces of Asian blood in her veins, whose main claim to fame is being Clark Kent's flakey ex-girlfriend???<p>I'm certainly not going to waste money on this. I wanna see someone who can really fight, if I'm expected to slap down $9.50.
