It’s not the best of qualities, but it is indeed the first trailer for the live-action “Tekken” movie from director Dwight H. Little, which has popped up online. From the trailer, the film’s lead looks like Jin Kazama, played by newcomer Jon Foo, who apparently had a role in “Universal Soldier: Regeneration”, though I don’t recall seeing him in the movie. The female lead looks like Kelly Overton, here playing Christie Monteiro. The cast also includes MMA fighter Cung Le, Luke Goss, Gary Daniels, Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa, Ian Anthony Dale, Chiaki Kuriyama, and Tamlyn Tomita. If you’re a fan of the game, this might interest you. If not, it probably won’t.
There’s no release date yet, and I doubt if Stateside fans will get the film in theaters. It’ll probably open on the big screen in Asia and other parts of the planet, but land on DVD in the States. That’s usually how these long-gestating films turn up.
