I just saw the trailer... I have bad feelings about that... I'm wondering... Why to complicate a SF movie if the plot could be very simple and yet interesting?

A SF movie just need to be about a tournament... A championship hosted by Bison (as an excuse for something, of course... maybe seeking the greater fighter of the world to dominate him/her as his puppet, or something). The tournament is just for the finest of the world, warriors that is beyond any other "normal" fighter (a.k.a. energy manipulators... an excuse for Hadoukens and any other Super Move :P).

Then, put some background history, about the relationship of Bison and some characters (Chun-Li, Guile) giving them a motivation to enter in the tournament, as the only way to face Bison. Add some characters that enter in the tournament just to prove their supremacy and the supremacy of their fighting style (E. Honda, Fei Long, etc), others characters that have some noble motivation (Dhalsin, etc) and put some heroes that enters in the tournament to improve their skills, looking for the great challenge of their lives (Ryu, Ken) then, after some conflicts, they join the first group of characters against Bison and his "evil plans".

Add to that the 3 "bosses" (Balrog, Vega and Sagat), some characters that can be being manipulated by Bison at the beggining (Blanka and Cammy, for example), make some conections with other characters (Sagat x Ryu, etc) and that's it!

I bet that is something that any SF fan would love to see in the big screen!

People not knowing what to expect are being mislead with that poster.
How many people will think that is Ryu and not Charlie? Or that is Ken's silhouette?

I am so unhappy with how Fox is promoting (or amazingly lack of) the movie that I decided to e-mail them.

Here's what I wrote:


To whom it may concern,

My name's Nando and I wanted to let you guys know that I am really disappointed with how incredibly lacking the promotion has been for the "Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li" movie. This movie has an amazingly huge audience that spans many generations and types of people and you guys aren't taking advantage of that.

What is with the horrible lack of hype for this amazing movie? Unless this movie gets pushed back half a year, I don't see any type of hype forming for this movie. It's already January and this movie comes out next month!!!! What took so long?

Also, that white movie poster that's been showing up in some theaters looks so amateurish. It's so uninspiring and boring. It looks like a graphic design student's project who got a C+ on it. Why is there the silhouette of two men fighting when Chun-Li is clearly the star of this movie and should have been at least one of the people in the silhouette? The "Street Fighter" logo has such dull typography...very weak and forgettable..."forgettable!" That's it! The poster is horribly forgettable and not legendary or extraordinary at all. Come on, Fox! Reach out the the online communities that could really help you guys out (,,,,, etc.).

I have been a Street Fighter fan since "II" and Chun-Li's been my favorite character. I can't believe with all of this other amazing Street Fighter products (games, anime, comics, etc.) coming out in February, you guys haven't milked the hype with this movie. February could have been the most amazing month for Street Fighter but I'm now thinking that it's going to be half-assed.

I don't know if you guys have some sort of amazing plan that will completely turn this around but for now, as a Street Fighter fan, a movie-goer, a graphic designer and an actor, I feel really disgusted with this. Please have an amazing plan for this! Please!




I hope Fox listens... :sigh:
