20th Century Fox has released the official American trailer for Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun Li on IGN.com. While I was actually surprised at the Japanese trailer that leaked last week, the new American trailer brings me firmly back to reality – this movie looks bad and not even the action will be able to save it. Oh, and the American voice over is just horrendous. It is remarkable how very little they show of lead actress Kristin Kreuk (or at least her face) in the entire advertisement. Watch the trailer after the jump and leave your thoughts in the comments below.
Official Plot Synopsis: Based on the legendary video game by Capcom, STREET FIGHTER: THE LEGEND OF CHUN-LI brings a new dimension to a world and characters beloved by millions. Devastated by the kidnapping of her father, Chun-Li takes to the streets of Hong Kong, embarking on an epic quest for justice – and hurtling toward a confrontation with a seemingly unstoppable foe.
Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun Li hits theaters on February 27th 2009.
