    Is Hollywood so OUT of ideas, that they have too do a movie of every popular game franchise? Why don't they do a STALKER movie? That game has so much X-Files atmosphere it bleeds out of the screen, and with enough questions left unanswered it also leaves a certain degree of artistic license for screenwriters to adapt the story to their needs.

    Hollywood is so out of ideas, they're reviving game movie franchises that they killed years ago. Mortal Kombat 3? Can't wait.

    This is one case where I woulden't advocate sticking to the source material, 90 minuites of people either being bounced in the air or kicked whilst down woulden't be particularly interesting.

    Don't forget that there will be a King of Fighter movie, too. Ray Park is the bad guy, and some white guy is the very Caucasian-sounding main character, Kyo Kusangi.

    I'm so glad the Soul Calibur movie just up and vanished from existence.

    The guy playing Jin is an awesome Martial Artist. I remember watching his online video back in the day.

    I am jazzed for this one myself, the costumes I've seen all look fine + they went for action over trying to make Tekken's batshit storyline into a cinematic focal point. I know it's cool for school to drop a few professional "meh"s on any kind of videogame movie, but R-rated tournament fighter with cosplayers is really all I want and expect out of a Tekken flick. ;)

    It's about time for Martial Arts to make a comeback, done right.... this could work.

    The storyline would have to be awesome tho, and I can't see how that can be done with so many characters to flesh out.

    Are the non-human characters gonna appear?

    Panda, Jack-2, Roger, The Devil, Ogre for e.g.

    Fuck Ling Xiayou! Just get Yoshimitsu right and kicking ass and I'm fine.

    By the by, is it gonna be following (somewhat) Tekken 3's story?
