US Poster for Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li

From KristenKreukWeb we have the new, and I'm assuming only, U.S. poster for "Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li". If you thought floating heads were bad, then you have not experienced them jammed into fighting bodies. I also like how Kreuk, the star and title character of the film, has been relegated to the lower right-corner of the poster because she needed the biggest head but only that dude's torso had enough room. There Kreuk will dwell until she emerges a la Kuato.

I also like how this is the "Legend of Chun-Li" but while the Japanese Poster had the balls to show Kreuk dressed in Chun-Li but here, a hot lady in a kimono wearing oversized spiked bracelets won't sell a movie. What does sell: two dudes filled with faces, punching each other in the face. They've got my ticket.

Finally, because there just isn't enough to rip on with this atrocious poster, look at the tagline: "Some fight for power. Some fight for us." You know, because the two are mutually exclusive.

Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li is directed by ex-cinematographer Andrzej Bartkowiak, who directed Romeo Must Die, Exit Wounds, Cradle 2 the Grave, and Doom previously. The script was penned by up-and-coming screenwriter Justin Marks, who also penned screenplays for Masters of the Universe and Voltron. Hong Kong fight choreographer Dion Lam, who previously worked on The Matrix Trilogy, Spider-Man 2, and all of Bartkowiak's previous films, is handling the fight sequences. Fox is debuting Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li in theaters everywhere on February 27th. See you in theaters!
