Street Fighter Legend of Chun Li

The typical rule for a studio is that when a film bombs, it doesn’t get a sequel. Fortunately for everyone on the planet with eyeballs, Capcom is not a film studio, and they don’t have to play by the rules. After the gut-wrenchingly bad showing that was The Legend of Chun Li, the fine folks over at Capcom have proclaimed that instead of lying back in the sweet arms of defeat, they’ll jump back up and start swinging again for everyone’s amusement. Fingers crossed that they team up with Asylum.



Welcome back to Junkfood Cinema: the worst part of your weekend. Every Friday I assault your sense of cinematic decency by serving up some truly awful films. These are the movies you would happily leave at the bottom of the dollar bin at that truck stop in northern Iowa, but for which I harbor great fondness. I will breakdown exactly what makes these films so bad but also what makes them hurt so good. As if that weren’t enough, I will also select a custom snack food to complement the film and add to your waistline what I subtract from your IQ.

Brian Gibson loves to buy DVDs. Come with him on his weekly journey into the depths of credit card debt as he tells you what to buy, rent and avoid.



Kreuk is looking to break into major motion pictures. With a starring role like this, she might have a chance. Let’s just cross our fingers and hope that she trades in her frumpy rags in the picture for some tight-fitting spandex.


Robin Shou as Gen: Street Fighter

Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun Li is entering it’s second week of production, and you can read all about it on their insidery blog that sounds a little bit too much like Ain’t It Cool News. Find out all about the production, see an exclusive photo, and oh lord I can’t keep typing this.


Jean Claude Van Damme has neither confirmed nor denied if he’s returning as Guile.
