The King of Fighters

The King of Fighters film is coming out based on the video game The King of Fighters. Funny how that works. Because the world needs yet another fighting game video game. This time destiny takes us to the world of King of Fighters, where “The King of Fighters movie will introduce a new science fiction spin into the setting established in the games’ universe by following the surviving members of three legendary fighting clans who are continually whisked away to other dimensions by an evil power. As the fighters enter each new world they battle that universe’s native defenders, while the force that brought them seeks to find a way to invade and infect our world.” Movieset

Wow. That sounds horrible! I love it!

The director Gordon Chan has done several Hong Kong films I have seen, including the Royal Tramp films, Gamboy Kids, Fight Back to School 2, and Beast Cop.

Sean Faris is the whitest guy named Kyo Kusanagi you will ever meet. Why even keep the Japanese name if you’re going to go that way? Whatever, Hollywood. Darth Maul and Françoise Yip are also in it. Françoise Yip was in Rumble in the Bronx and Alone in the Dark. So at least she has avoided starring in more Uwe Boll crap. The real reason anyone will watch this is Maggie Q, so hooray for her (seen here in Naked Weapon) Kane Kosugi is no stranger to video game films having been in DOA Dead or Alive. There are also complaints because Ryo’s sister isn’t in the film and instead they made his sister King. I have no idea what that complaint is about because I haven’t played the games so I don’t care. But if you do, please explain it to me in the comments! I value your input. Sort of.
I am waiting for a trailer because I enjoy laughing. See you in 2010!
