King Of Fighters Movie Trailer: Surprise Or Destined Failure?

As a general rule of thumb, I try to watch just about anything featuring Maggie Q. You know, just because. But this one...I dunno.

So there's another movie based on a video game coming out, and perhaps unfortunately, this film is using the revered King of Fighters franchise as its main influence. You can view the full theatrical trailer below but before you do, we're warning you: this does look fairly decent on the surface, but just think about how many times you've been fooled before by slick-looking previews. Hasn't this happened to us in the past with the likes of oh, say..."Street Fighter?" Granted, we still have plenty of hope for future projects like "Prince of Persia" and that "Metal Gear Solid" movie, but when it comes to movies based on fighters, we're required to have our suspicions.

Well, what did you think? See, Maggie Q is in it. See? The hot one. That's always a bonus but Hollywood should've learned by now that gamers won't be swayed by chicks; they're going to need a decent film in order to drop the money on a ticket. Besides, fighting fans would usually rather play the games they enjoy so maybe this movie will just have to appeal to all the teenage boys out there. Well, we'll see how it does.
