You can count on one hand the number of videogame-to-movie adaptations that haven’t been total disappointments, and I count Dwight Little’s “Tekken” as one of the more successful ones. Granted, the bar is pretty low, but that takes nothing away from “Tekken’s” kick-ass martial arts action. Thanks to the folks at Anchor Bay Entertainment, who are releasing “Tekken” on DVD and Blu-ray July 19th, we have two copies of the “Tekken” Blu-ray to give away to two lucky winners. Head on below for details.
The videogame of the future comes to full live-action life when Anchor Bay Films and Manga Entertainment release Tekken on July 19th. Directed by Dwight H. Little, Tekken stars Jon Foo, Kelly Overton, Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa, Ian Anthony Dale, Darrin DeWitt Henson, former world champion kick boxer Gary Daniels, MMA fighters Cung Le, and Roger Huerta, Luke Goss, and Tamlyn Tomita.
The year is 2039. World wars have destroyed everything and territories are run by corporations, the mightiest — and cruelest — of which is Tekken. Jin Kazama (Jon Foo) witnesses the death of his mother Jun (Tomita) by Tekken in the slums known as Anvil. Vowing vengeance, and armed only with his street smarts and raw fighting skills, he enters a dangerous and potentially deadly combat tournament, where he must defeat the world’s mostelite fighters to become the “King of the Iron Fist.”
As always, entering the giveaway is a cinch. Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject header: “Tekken Blu-ray Giveaway”. In the body of the email, provide your snail mail address, and on July 20th, we will draw two lucky winners at random and ship their prizes to them. Open to all entrants. Good luck!
