Tekken Movie in 2010
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.
