I love the anime, and I'm hoping this will be more like Mortal Combat then Street Fighter.
Nooo. I'm hoping it's not like either, both were terrible, being a CGI would be perfect.

ooops threw up thinking about how bad this movie will end up turning out. Raven is in the first tekken movie??? The Story WILL be Lacking Edit: The casting looks perfect though http://www.youtube.com/watc...
Looked quite good to me..
Will fighting games actually work in movies ? I havent seen a good movie based on fighting games... Hell i havent seen good movie based on fighting, PERIOD. LOL Mortal Kombat, Street Fighter, DOA ... all were terrible. Although i dig DOA for the girls, thats it. :D
A Live Action Tekken Movie.................. Haven't we learned already about film adaptions of Fighting Games? Street Fighter, Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun Li, Mortal Kombat, Mortal Kombat: Annihilation, Dragon Ball, Dead Or Alive. Then there's next year with a live action King Of Fighters and Mortal Kombat 3. What the hell!
Tell me about it...I really don't understand why they think it's profitable these days. DOA bombed as did Legend of Chun Li and Dragonball (I believe).
How can u say that u terrible animal,away with u.I love Mortal Kombat.Oh and the movie,loved it :) Scorpion: get over here.... as long as he is leading me towards a bed. *wink*
Mortal Kombat isn't bad, I quite like it. But these days, beat-em-up movies bomb... I guess you'll be happy to hear that Scorpion will be returning to your fantasi...erm, I mean screens with a new MK movie. Why not Sub Zero? Not as hot? *drumroll please*
the first mk movie wasnt that bad. Scorpion was a monster. He literally stomped out Johnny Cage. GET DOWN HERE! Alhough Shang Tsung wouldve killed Liu Kang at the end, not to mention REPTILE destroying liu kang until movie magic hero must win fakeness kicked in.
I'm def. a fan, I saw the first Tekken movie and was amazed by it, if this is a CGI movie ,which it looks to be it'll be kick a##.
Good god, people in Holiwood need to sort their sheds out if the best they can come up with is a freaking Tekken film. Fact - Game to film = SH1T
Why would anyone make a movie after this crappy franchise like seriously. This is the worst fighting franchise, even clay fighters, and primal rage gain more respect. This is a button smasher.
Ah, that must be why it's so popular then.
The movie will turn out just like the avatar picture for it crappy.
I dare you to try to win a match against anyone good Tekken player by button mashing; see if that takes you anywhere.
MORE GAME MOVIES, WHYYY!!!!!!????
Because Hollywood is a lazy place.
wonder if its the xbox version or ps3 /sarcasm but seriously i hope they dont mess this movie up like the have every other Game to Movie adaption since the beggining of time.
I quite enjoyed Silent Hill...
movies based in games: fail.
I dunno...they're not all failures. ...well, yes I guess they are.
Well considering that they went for an "enter the dragon" style story, I think this will surprise alot of people who think it will suck. At least costumewise, they got it mostly right and they hired actual fighters who have acting experience so I'm going to hold out some hope on this one.
But that kind of thing hasn't stopped similar movies sucking in the past. We'll see though...
Looks like an epic fail already. These producers don't have better things to waste their money on?
