Two clips from the live-action “Tekken” movie, due out on Blu-ray/DVD/Digital Copy Combo and DVD Editions July 19th from Anchor Bay Films and Manga Entertainment. The first is a scene from the movie with star Jon Foo fighting MMA champ Cung Le in the Iron Fist open call, while the second is a behind-the-scenes featurette with the film’s action choreographer Cyril Raffaelli doing his thing.
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.”
Directed by Dwight H. Little (“Bones,” Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers), “Tekken” stars Jon Foo, Kelly Overton (“The Ring Two”), Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa (“Planet of the Apes”, “Pearl Harbor”, “Balls of Fury”), Ian Anthony Dale (“The Hangover”, “The Bucket List”), Darrin DeWitt Henson (“Stomp The Yard”, “Soul Food”), former world champion kick boxer Gary Daniels (“The Expendables”), MMA fighters Cung Le (“Pandorum”, “Dragon Eyes”), and Roger Huerta, Luke Goss (“Hellboy II: The Golden Army”, “Blade II”), and Tamlyn Tomita (“The Day After Tomorrow”, “The Joy Luck Club”.)
