By Brent Sprecher - 6/9/2010
From Crystal Sky Pictures:

Based on the long running and highly successful Namco video game franchise of the same name, Tekken is a high-octane, action packed thriller written for the screen by Alan McElroy (Spawn, The Marine), directed by Dwight Little (Anacondas, Murder at 1600) with fight choreography by Dion Lam (Spider-Man 2, Doom, Red Cliff)












Set in 2039, the film promises non-stop high flying action as the greatest fighters from around the world come to compete in the last and greatest sporting event of all time, the Fist Tournament. After World Wars destroy 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.

We are introduced to this violent world through the eyes of Jin Kazama, a street fighter that enters the tournament in order to avenge the death of his mother that he blames upon Tekken's powerful and controlling Chairman, Heihachi Mishima. He knows that the only way to get close enough to Mishima to kill him is to win the tournament. With the help of Lucas, an ageing Iron Fist Champion and fight trainer, Jin makes his way through the tournament, but in doing so, he begins to uncover his own past and inner demons as well as exposing a dark underbelly to Tekken that threatens the very existence of humanity.

With futuristic and imaginative sets, a compelling story, and fight sequences combining fighting styles from all over the world.
Tekken is in line to become one of the greatest action films of all time.

Wicked poster!!!

@LEEE: Man, I finally got around to watching that Dragonball movie all of the way through after starting and stopping it FIVE TIMES and I must say that it was truly a pile of what you said. Can't believe I bothered to finish it.

@tea: I wouldn't be surprised. I still can't find a release date for it. IMDB has it listed as "2010" only. I gotta say, it would suck hard to spend so much time making something and then having it go straight to DVD or not come out at all.

I can relate: I spent five months writing a four-issue comic book series for Bluewater and the artist has so far taken two years to draw two-and-a-half issues of the four issues that I wrote. If he ever gets around to completing it, I'm worried the publisher may just scrap it because it's taken so long. It's chapping.

This movie looks like a peice of shit
deadpool87 - 6/9/2010, 7:42 AM
your info is off, Dion Lam is NOT the fight choreographer, it's Cyril Raffeli. There's even video of him doing the choreography on youtube or something.
ThaMessenger07 - 6/9/2010, 8:06 AM
@ deadpool87: Cyril Raffeli is part of Dion Lam's Stunt team and he plays Eddie.

sorry, but this movie will suck so bad.
jaycranney - 6/9/2010, 9:07 AM
I've seen it, all be it in subtitles. I have to say that I liked it. Close to the original story, but had a few tweaks in there and some key characters were missing... all in all, I thought it was pretty good.
Ranger14 - 6/9/2010, 9:13 AM
A movie like this I watch strictly for the martial arts and choreography. Can't say it will suck because I haven't seen anything but a poster yet.
McLovin - 6/9/2010, 9:19 AM
@Skyh00k - hahahahaha!!!!!!! Tekken a dump is the best way to describe this turd. AUTOMATIC FAIL!!!!!!!!
WakeUp - 6/9/2010, 9:51 AM

@anil, thats exactly what i was thinking.

This poster looks cheesy, since i heard of it i think this movie will fail badly. I would much rather prefer a mortal kombat movie (im not taking that trailer for mk, its practically a different movie altogether) beside mortal kombat would be better, just like the games were :P

make mine mortal kombat
ThaMessenger07 - 6/9/2010, 10:23 AM
This movie has a spectacular cast of Martial artist so the fights are gonna make Street Fighter: TLCL look like crap. But the acting from that movie should dwarf this one lol.

@ Brent Sprecher: Yeah what I said! lol
Vafrous - 6/9/2010, 10:47 AM
Why did they turn my fav character into a 40Yr old...
odie00 - 6/9/2010, 10:49 AM
uhh yeah im not sure on this movie i mean jon foo can fight and all. he was in that street fighter legacy fan made film that was on here. as far as the story goes he makes out with cristine the brazilian girl who looks white the film haha. man idk its probably not going to be good and i love the tekken games.
ThaMessenger07 - 6/9/2010, 11:10 AM
@ GambitAceOfSpades: Who's your fave?
InTylerWeTrust - 6/9/2010, 11:30 AM
Shit poster. Shittier trailer. Probably shittiest movie.
Osiris - 6/9/2010, 12:50 PM
Jins arm looks misplaced, it looks like it was tacked on.
Minotauro - 6/9/2010, 1:34 PM
@Tyler - That title goes for your boy's movie "Captain America"..
thedon786 - 6/9/2010, 1:34 PM
hope its better he street fighter legend of chun li lol
travisto83 - 6/9/2010, 2:07 PM
i have seen trailers for this and it looks [frick]ing cheesy. just as bad as the dead or alive movie with jamie presley and kevin nash.
travisto83 - 6/9/2010, 2:11 PM
look it up on youtube if you dare. you might lose faith
in everything you love, seriously. its worse than that street fighter movie that came out in the early 90s.
ngu13 - 6/9/2010, 4:41 PM
this film will be good jon foo is a great fighter ,,,and is sound in life trust me
OverCross - 6/9/2010, 5:32 PM
As much as I'd love to see this I have to ask if that's a Step-Up 3D for Japan poster



Darn it why did I say that....
Fumbles - 6/9/2010, 6:17 PM
God I hope this movie doesn't suck. the game has such a great storyline and cast of characters, and it's great how everyone is tied together somehow. Jin Kazama is a badass and should be on the level of Mario in my opinion.
Fumbles - 6/9/2010, 6:17 PM
still... Solid Snake would kick his ass!
Vafrous - 6/9/2010, 8:32 PM
@TheMessenger...Steve Fox,who is being played by Luke Goss
PWhite - 6/10/2010, 11:33 AM
The poster looks ok. The movie is gonna fail. Im shocked no 1 here has talked about that new Mortal Kombat short that just came out. It looks promising. The director made the short to pitch it to warner bros. A couple of changes to the characters but it looks good.
PWhite - 6/10/2010, 12:05 PM
NVM my last post. just saw the headline for it.
thatiscrazy - 6/10/2010, 12:48 PM
This movie is going to SUCK
Magicfingers - 6/10/2010, 3:12 PM
Oh man! I was actually looking forward to seeing this, but now I hear it's going straight to DVD...
Dragonballs gets to see the inside of a theatre and THIS goes to DVD!
Shenanigans! SHENANIGANS!!!
