Two brand new TV spots for Watchmen and Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li have popped up online; one amazing, one not so much – you can probably guess which one’s which.
Warner Brothers is sure pumping up the marketing as we get closer the release date of Watchmen (less than three weeks away!). This new short trailer is awesome and the background music is epic as always – They sure know how to make a good trailer! Remember how good The Dark Knight trailers were?
The other trailer is for Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li and nothing in it excites me. For a movie strictly based only on fighting, the fighting is poor compared to other movies like Ninja Assassin or even the few fight scenes we’ve seen from Watchmen.
Watch and enjoy!
Street Fighter Trailer
Watchmen is directed By Zack Snyder and stars Billy Crudup, Carla Gugino, Patrick Wilson, Jackie Earle Haley, Matthew Goode, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Malin Akerman and Matt Frewer.
Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li is directed by Andrzej Bartkowiak and stars Kristin Kreuk, Chris Klein, Neal McDonough, Michael Clarke Duncan, Moon Bloodgood, Taboo and Robin Shou. I’m a pretty big fan of Neal McDonough from his roles in Band of Brothers, Minority Report and Star Trek: First Contact as well as Robin Shou from the Mortal Kombat movies but not even they can sell me on this film.
The Street Fighter movie’s release date is tied to the release of the next big video game in the series. Street Fighter IV hits shelves February 17 (two days from now) and The Legend of Chun-Li, comes outs ten days later on February 27, 2009.
Watchmen debuts shortly thereafter on March 6, 2009.
