Excellent New U.S. Trailer for the Live-Action Tekken Movie

8 Comments

Dwight H. Little’s live-action “Tekken” movie was a surprisingly good film. It was much better than I had expected, though that could simply be because my expectations were very low. This is a movie based on a fighting game, after all, and we all know how those have turned out over the years. You can count on one hand the number of adaptations that could reasonably be considered “not utter shit”. Check out the new and surprisingly excellent U.S. trailer for “Tekken”, due out Stateside on DVD and Blu-ray from Anchor Bay Entertainment on July 19th. We’ll have free copies of the film on DVD and Blu-ray to giveaway next month, so stay tuned.

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 (John 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 most elite fighters to become the “King of the Iron Fist.”

The combatants include Luke Goss, Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa, Chiaki Kuriyama, Darrin Dewitt Henson, Jon Foo, Gary Daniels, Kelly Overton, Cung Le, Ian Anthony Dale, Lateef Crowder, Mircea Monroe, Tamlyn Tomita, and Candice Hillebrand.

    I too was pleasantly surprised by this. I wasn’t expecting much, but what we got was at least on par with the first “MK” movie or close enough. Sure they had to make some changes but it was stiill decent and the fights were actually good. Oh and Jon Foo for Kaneda!!!!!!

      Foo was very good. I’ll be very disappointed if he doesn’t rise to Scott Adkins-level fame in a few years.

        Agreed! He was also the wushu fighter with the sword in “The Protector” with Tony Jaa.

        Sent on the go.

    I’m cool with gary daniels as a fighter, but i felt like he was out of place in this movie as bryan fury. Could be just me.

    Urrrmmmm, where is my favorite character King……? I’m sorry, but this movie cannot work without a badass luchadore with a jaguar mask.

      King was missed but your description alone says it all. On screen it would look ridiculous and had they changed him to a luchadore with an actual luchadore mask with jagaur theme people woulda trashed it.

      Sent on the go.
