The trailer for the big screen adaptation of Tekken has now gone online. After watching the trailer, it would appear that it is some kind of gladiatorial-esque tournament, with Jin as the protagonist. I didn’t recognize any specific actors, and the entire thing looked and felt kinda cheesy. Cheesy is fine by me because some of my favorite films are B movies, and this looks the part. At the helm is director Dwight Little, whose film, Anacondas: The Hunt for the Blood Orchid was surprisingly shunted for an Oscar. I bet he’ll be looking to really impress those critics with this new masterpiece of his. Although I am picking on Mr. Little, I can say that I am extremely happy that Uwe Boll is not directing this.
As an aside to my fellow MMA fans, note the 2 professional fighters appearing in the trailer. One is Cung Le, right at the 50 second mark and UFC veteran, Roger Huerta, at the 1.13 mark.
