*thank you all Tekken fans*
EDIT#8: So the Japanese site of Tekken has launched. O_O yeah...
its pretty much wtf from here on out.
American debut is still in the works now.
Japanese debut is in March so stay tuned!!
EDIT #7: Want to see behind the scenes footage of Tekken and its stuntmen? Check out "CastielBell" 's profile for the making of Tekken or search "Tekken Movie Stunt Stars". Enjoy!
EDIT#6: It seems the Tekken Premiere in the US got moved back to March. So in short, the US and Japan premiere may be around the same time. Stay posted!
EDIT#5: It seems the release date for the U.S is closer than we all think. It may premiere as early as February of 2010 if the Independent movie makers of Tekken can find a distributor. (This is unofficial news, as the source is quite shady. Nevertheless, I believe its something worth noting since he was correct on the Japanese premiere and Warner Bros being the distributor. He was also correct on the November private screening of Tekken in Santa Monica.)
Jon Foo as Jin Kazama
Ian Anthony Dale as Kazuya Mishima
Hiroyuki Tagawa as Heihachi Mishima
Kelly Overton as Christie Monteiro
Luke Goss as Steve Fox
Cung Le as Marshall Law
Gary Daniels as Bryan Fury
Candice Hillebrand as Nina Williams
Marian Zapico as Anna Williams
Darrin Dewitt Henson as Raven
Naomi Tomita as Jun Kazama
Gary Ray Stearns as Yoshimitsu
Anton Kasabov as Sergei Dragunov
Roger Huerta as Miguel Caballero Rojo
Mircea Monroe as Kara
All other characters won't be making an appearance sadly.
(Yes, that means no Xiaoyu, Hwoarang, King, Kuma, Panda, Lei Wulong, Paul, etc.)
Xiaoyu and Hwoarang should have been in the movie since the story does have Jin as the main character, but I guess you can't have all characters. It's still a missed opportunity though. Hopefully, if this movie garners enough support (or hate), a sequel may be made with more characters making an appearance.
EDIT #3: The song that begins to play at 1:35 is "You're Going Down" by Sick Puppies.
And Jon Foo (Jin Kazama) is actually half Chinese and half Caucasian. So Tekken isn't going to be like Dragonball Evolution at all with the casting. Just look at the costumes and character resemblance. There's absolutely no comparison.
Tekken never had a solid story. And the story in the games are bad, REALLY bad. So the screenplay isn't going to be exactly like the games' story and not all characters will be present.
And yes, Tekken already had an anime adaptation. The story revolved around the Mishimas and Jun. Look it up on google or Youtube.
EDIT #2: This video is going to be shown in Japan first on March 6, 2010. Depending on how that goes, Tekken may or may not come to the US in theaters.
EDIT: It seems the release date is April 5, 2010. (unofficial)
And yes this is an Indie film, NOT made by Hollywood. This is why we see a lot of characters resembling their video game counterparts. If Hollywood made this movie, we would probably get something closer to Legend of Chunli.
real tekken movie trailer
I did not make this movie.
Tekken belongs to Namco.
