The King of Fighters, SNK’s flagship series, is getting a movie. Of course, it looks just awful.
Why? Because it threw away everything that was certifiably KoF and slapped on a cheap science fiction aesthetic. Bleh.
See the new trailer above. At least Uwe Boll isn’t directing it.
Check the film’s description from Movieset:
The King of Fighters movie will introduce a new science fiction spin into the setting established in the games’ universe by following the surviving members of three legendary fighting clans who are continually whisked away to other dimensions by an evil power. As the fighters enter each new world they battle that universe’s native defenders, while the force that brought them seeks to find a way to invade and infect our world.
The film is being directed by Gordon Chan (Jet Li’s director for Fist of Legend), and stars Sean Faris (Never Back Down), Maggie Q (Live Free or Die Hard), Will Yun Lee (Elektra), and Darth Maul. I mean… Ray Park.
It’s coming out next year, to what’s sure to be a record stint at the box office. Lines forming now at your local movie theater.
