When the Tekken film was released, it was so bad that Tekken's video game producer Katsuhiro Harada publically distanced himself from the project. He might have to do that again.


For reasons unbeknownst to man, Hollywood is keen to make another Tekken flick. Crystal Sky, one of the production companies on the first film, is planning a prequel that's "part of a franchise of movies".

No details are yet known other than the prequel's title, Tekken: Rise of the Tournament, which makes it sound like the film will follow the creation of the Iron Fist Tournament.


The first Tekken film got its premier in Singapore. The movie was so bad that its release was straight-to-DVD in the U.S. Tekken game producer Harada called the movie "terrible". Yep! That sounds about right.
