the TEKKEN movie
There's a LOT of TEKKEN fans out there. I mean A LOT. Here in Iloilo, there's like a 50% percentage of people I know who have, at least for a few times in their lives, have been TEKKN game fanatics. Of course, news of a TEKKEN movie would be big news for them. Unfortunately, the upcoming (suddenly came out of nowhere) TEKKEN movie may not be what some of you fans may expect. Not unless maybe you love B-movie type action movies. Well, just check the trailer for yourself and make your own judgement.
Directed by Dwight H. Little, the guy responsible for films such as Anacondas: The Hunt for the Blood Orchid and Marked for Death, which starred Steven Seagal, and from a screenplay written by Alan McElroy, the guy behind The Marine, Wrong Turn, and Halloween 4. The film version is a science fiction gladiator story set in the near future, about a rebel who rises up against the Tekken Corp. to seize freedom for his people. Here's the synopsis:
"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."
