However, an early trailer for the movie has finally appeared on Teaser-Trailer.com (via SlashFilm) and it looks pretty awful. They took the idea of adapting a fighting game literally and set it in the “King of Iron Fist” tournament arena, just like in the game, and even added character choosing like this was happening right in the arcade. But besides all that, there is actually some awesome fighting in this, so maybe it could be good? Although I’m not sure when or if it’ll hit theaters.
Tekken is directed by Dwight H. Little of Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers, Marked for Death, and Anacondas: The Hunt for the Blood Orchid. It’s based on Namco’s popular series of fighting games, which first debuted in 1994. The story will follow Jin, who enters the “King of Iron First” tournament in order to avenge the death of his mother that he blames upon Tekken’s powerful and controlling chairman, Heihachi Mishima. The screenplay was written by Alan B. McElroy of Spawn, The Marine, and the Wrong Turn trilogy previously. We don’t have any US release info for this yet, but we’ll still keep you updated!
