A new batch of preview clips of the new Street Fighter movie, aka Street Fighter The Legend of Chun-Li, has shown up online. Those new clips do no look as good as we may have expected from the earlier clip we’ve seen… I especially appreciate Moon Bloodgood’s performance (can’t say more, my wife checks this blog from time to time…)!
Don’t bug Kristin Kreuk! you may not like Smallville, but she will kick you ass if you start bugging her! She learned real martial arts for Street Fighter The Legend of Chun-Li, an upcoming action movie based on the videogame of the same name. Here below a first clip showing Kristin Kreuk as Chun-Li in a fight scene:
IGN is sharing an interview of Scriptwriter Justin Marks who penned the screenplay of Street Fighter The Legend of Chun-Li, the upcoming movie based on the famous Capcom franchise and starring Kristin Kreuk in the lead role:
If you were wondering why this new Street Fighter movie isn’t about Ryu or Ken well Justin Marks explains that it’s to bring something new, something different from what may have been done in the past. “Chun-Li is a fresh bottle of water” in the Street Fighter universe! :)
Her strength, her fury, her vengeance will become legend!
They could still make a better poster, but this one is already a good draft. One thing to correct asap though: Kristin Kreuk is pretty, Chun-Li herself is said pretty, so how the hell did they mange to make Kristin Kreuk look like a zombie on this poster of Street Fighter The Legend of Chun Li? Come on, show how pretty she is! Pretty does not mean weak when we’re talking about Chun-Li, just think about her Hundred Rending Kicks or about her Qiqong!
Some are still sulking because Ryu and Ken aren’t appearing in the movie, they even pretend that’s this is a major flaw. But, it doesn’t matter whether Ryu and Ken are in the movie or not. The movie is about Chun-Li after all: it is an origin story. So let’s enjoy this Chun-Li movie! Anf for the fanboys, don’t be too sad, I bet that Ryu and Ken will get a movie soon! :)

Some fight for power. Some fight for us.
This Chun-Li movie poster does not look that bad, but it’s not outstanding either… I have the impression they’re marketing this movie like a basic action-fight movie, let’s say like if it they were promoting a basic MMA movie like Never back Down. But that’s a Street Fighter movie for God’s sake! The source material is well known, there is a large fan base, so they could make an effort to produce a better poster… For a start I’d suggest to switch back to a yellow-orange logo instead of this blue title… ;-P
The movie trailer of Street Fighter The Legend of Chun Li, aka Street Fighter 2, has been released in Japan. No English subtitles, but if you’re as curious as I am then you will not mind. Enjoy this Street Fighter movie trailer:
This movie trailer of Street Fighter looks quite appealing: Kristin Kreuk does look to fit the job as Chun Li. I’m quite impressed by her skills in martial arts: she must have learned alot for this new Street Fighter movie.
An English trailer of Street Fighter should show up quite soon. :)
Don’t worry: Kristin Kreuk is as tanned as usual in the movie. It’s just that Japanese prefer fair complexions, so they photoshoped the lovely Kristin Kreuk… Anyway she is still pretty even on this Japanese poster of Street Fighter The Legend Of Chun Li. :)
Comments Off on Cast of The New Street Fighter Movie
You may know that a new Street Fighter movie has been under works. This new film is appropriately titled Street Fighter The legend of Chun Li as it is indeed a kind of origin story focusing on Chun Li. Here below the cast of Street Fighter The legend of Chun Li:
In the role of Chun Li: Kristin Kreuk who was in the permanent cast of Smallville till recently! At first I was a bit worried to hear this: are they going to make a “smallvillesque” version of Street Fighter? But Director Steven E. de Souza who was in charge of the original 1994 Street Fighter movie said that Street Fighter The Legend of Chun Li should be better. So we may hope a great flick! :)
Street Fighter The Legend of Chun Li Action/Adventure/Sci-Fi/Thriller Directed by Andrzej Bartkowiak Starring Kristin Kreuk, Neal McDonough, Chris Klein, Michael Clarke Duncan, Robin Shou, Moon Bloodgood Release Date: February 27, 2009
