Tekken – New photos are out. The female fighter’s costumes are a little impractical

Posted by LiveFor on February 18, 2010

Tekken is a great video game from Namco. The film may not be that great, but could be a bit of fun as these films so often are. It looks as if it will be a sci-fi kind of film about a rebel who rises up against the Tekken Corp. to seize freedom for his people.

Directed by Dwight Little, the movie stars Luke Goss, Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa, Tamlyn Tomita, Gary Daniels, Chiaki Kuriyama, Cung Le, Jon Foo, Kelly Overton, Ian Anthony Dale, Lateef Crowder, Darrin Dewitt Henson, John Pyper-Ferguson, Mircea Monroe, Gary Ray Stearns, Candice Hillebrand and David Pitt.

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.

io9 have lots more photos. Check out the trailer.

    Seeing this makes me sad, i love tekken, awesome game series, but it would not make a good movie, the storyline is too big to capture on film. and of course noone gets to see their favorites (not all of them anyway) Where’s Paul, Lei, Forest and King just to name a few. i understand they can’t put all of them in the movie, but there’s even a character from Tekken 6 in there, wich came out a couple of months ago, and i think his storyline isn’t all that great (talking about Miguel).
    Anyway, i don’t think i’ll be seeing this in cinemas, i hope they prove me wrong and make it awesome.
