Well this is… interesting. The trailer for the upcoming Tekken film adaptation has just been released, and I am not impressed. Not only did they make dramatic changes from the vague, loose plot of the games (to be fair, I’m not actually sure how bad this really is), but where’s King? Where’s King mothalovas?! Besides, the trailer just oozes B-movie, and not in a good way. Check it out below, and turn off the annotations, that’s just obnoxious.
The year is 2039. World Wars have destroyed much of civilization as we know it. The remaining territories are no longer run by governments, but by corporations, the mightiest of which is Tekken. In order to keep the masses down, Tekken sponsors the Iron Fist Tournament in which fighters compete to the death for ultimate glory and receive a lifetime of stardom and wealth.
By the way, the above pic is from a Tekken-themed Maxim photoshoot, not the actual movie. I found it more interesting than the entire trailer. Cheers.
