Street Fighter The Legend Of Chun-Li Poster Is "Nice"

Sheesh, the new Street Fighter: The Legend Of Chun-Li doesn't want to use the movie's greatest asset, Kristen Kreuk. The new heads-in-bodies poster leaves much to be desired. Come on, where's the leg?

Ms. Kreuk, who is by all accounts a gorgeous young thing, has been repeatedly washed out and photo shopped to her detriment throughout most of the Street Fighter marketing. How do you make such a gorgeous girl look so plain?

Forget that she doesn't have the yup-yup power thighs we all have come to treasure, she's a looker. Yet this movie insists on making her look like hell. Calling this poster "nice" is the best I can do.

And now this poster, it's sad to say but I do not have high expectations for Balrog, Bison and Vega. The Jean-Claude Van Damme film from the 90s is much more exciting, despite the fact that people LOVE Chun-Li.

Also where is Blanka? I know this is Chun-Li's origins story, but let's appeal to the marketplace here: I want to see monsters and thighs.

Street Fighter: The Legend Of Chun-Li will be out February 27, 2009.

Kristin Kreuk is one seriously lovely woman...and yes, the merketing of this film has played that down to a strange degree...but maybe they're trying to avoid making it look like it's just a movie about a girl...?

ugh...I don't know...
