Oh Chun Li Where Art Thou?
Oh Chun Li Where Art Thou?
Topless Robot has spotted this poster for the new Street Fighter: Chun Li poster, and spots something rather odd...Chun Li is barely in it. Her face is, but it's only slightly larger than that of the other characters displayed, which they are done within the silhouette of two men fighting. Yes, men-- no Chun Li there.


My fears for this film continue to get worse and worse...

Yeah that is pretty sad

And the  line "Some fight for Power, Some fight for us" is pretty lame IMO

I thought about making a new thread for this but just posted it in the Chun Li trailer thread 45 minutes ago.

Oh dear!  Its Vega.  I don't see how he's in the plot?  I remember playing Street Fighter eons ago, and he was the most narcissistic player!

GMan: We clearly need to coordinate these things better. =P

It was a matter of not seeing it so I took a moment away from CV to post it.

... from a graphical design aspect the poster is so bland and not eye catching for a passerby.

As a fan of Street Fighter, this sucks monkey butt.

Ha! The "all-male" silhouette is rather sad for a film that's about the series' most popular female character. My guess is that the distributor watched a cut of the film and is probably doing everything in their power to minimize Kristin Kruek's presence.

It's "Cardcaptors"-syndrome at work, folks.

I have little-to-no hope for this movie.  The trailer and poster don't look like anything you'd call "Street Fighter".
I mean, they have to balance making sticking to the game with making a realistic movie.  Lean too far toward the game, and it will look and feel goofy and stupid.  (I can't imagine Chun Li's Spinning Bird Kick making much sense in a movie that wasn't full of insane wire-fu.)  Lean too far toward reality, and you lose all connection to the source material.  

It looks like this movie is doing the former.  The martial arts I've seen in the trailers don't even look that exciting.

Yeah, I have to agree. Sad day. Hollywood just can't have too many strong female fighter characters nor be bothered to make a decent movie about them.
