looks like it ! and it looks cool for once.


Check out clips and stills from Street Fighter Legacy, an officially sanctioned Street Fighter short film featuring Hollywood talent that could be the most accurate screen adaptation of the World Warriors ever created.

Street Fighter Legacy is the creation of actor, filmmaker, and action choreographer Joey Ansah, known for his role as Desh in The Bourne Ultimatum. Like many Street Fighter fans, Ansah was sick and tired of Hollywood treating our beloved characters like complete shit. Unlike many Street Fighter fans, Ansah has the means and contacts to do something about it.

also, I stand by my comparision to batman: dead end.
but are made but small, indie film makers without much backing of professional mainstream studios, and both capture the essence of the source material faithfully in their short, but awesome movies, made with love. they both work as teasers and they both end with an open end and a highlight.

No. This is "OFFICIALLY SANCTIONED".

Batman: Dead End was a fan film. Big difference.

Hard to judge with 60 seconds worth of footage. But the shots of Ryu and Ken in the rain does look quite cool.

yeah, CAPCOM themselves have posted the article...and are fully behind this film being made.

guess even they know how much the studio movies of their properties have sucked ballz

Capcom gave it their blessing, but they aren't paying for it or helping at all from what I've heard.

I really dont understand why people with this much talent squander it on fan films. Why not make something original?

It was cute when they touched feet at the end though.

same as why some people work more for dc or marvel instead of creator owned. they love those properties.
and, this can be a good way to get attention and build a career.

Gorgeous and very well put together but kind of dull.

It isn't the same. They aren't working for Capcom or a movie studio. It's more like creating a fully penciled, inked, and colored fanfic and then paying to have it printed. As for getting attention and building a career, has creating a fanfilm ever helped anyone in their career? Even Sandy Corrola has had difficulty parlaying the most famous fanfilm of all time into anything. Seems like the smarter move would be to pull a Neill Blomkamp and create your own shorts whole cloth.

Seriously, I don't get it.

just cause it didn't work in the past, doesn't mean it won't work in the future. sure, they probably didn't get paid for what they did, but it still is a labour of love for them and they can awe some people with their work and show what they are capable of. so, it works for me.
