Capcom: The Milking Has Begun!

It's disgusting how Capcom is allowing this to happen... So, Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun Li is coming out next month and judging from the trailer, it's going to be trash. It looks like this one is going to be more of a stinker than the one released in 1994 with Jean-Claude Van Damme: at least that one had Raul Julia and the actors were dressed like the game characters. With the great Street Fighter IV planned for release ten days prior to the movie, it doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out what's going on here. They may enjoy the glorious ticket sale caused by the renewed Street Fighter fever but I just cannot believe they are willing to carry the filthy shame that goes along with it for the rest of their existence! And then there is also the terrible movie poster:

The people responsible for this catastrophe probably never even
heard of Street Fighter before. So Chun Li is that masked person on the top left?
That big face on the bottom right looks so masculine...
Kristin Kreuk looks hardly Chinese: Why can't they hire Zhang Ziyi?

In Japan, they knew they wouldn't be able to get away with that first poster...
Though it provides a false expectation, at least it this one is more dignified.
