Cool Videos: Officially sanctioned Street Fighter short film

I'd call this a "fan film" but when it's being directed, produced and filmed by real Hollywood actors and insiders, I don’t think that’s the appropriate term. But Joey Ansah (Desh, from THE BOURNE ULTIMATUM) is a Street Fighter fan, and he had the means to put together a short film that he believes to be incredibly faithful to the game, unlike other big screen adaptations.

"As an actor, film maker and a fan, I have been repeatedly disappointed by the many diluted, un faithful and outright butchered movie adaptations of fighting video games. It was clear to me, that given the way the movie industry worked, we would never see a super faithful, darker toned and more adult themed (or just plain good!) incarnation of Street fighter unless a die-hard fan director or film-making team with the game canon knowledge, film making know how and connections stepped up to the plate to helm such a project.

So almost a year ago, I began writing treatments and a production design brief and partnered with Streetlight films before proposing my concept and vision to Capcom. I'm pleased to say they gave their blessing and permission for the project to move forward."

So all we have thus far is a pair of teaser trailers for the film, which debuts on Thursday, and if it’s embeddable, I’ll share the full thing with you then. But until then, check the project out below; I think the second trailer is pretty damn cool looking. Click through either video to watch them in 1080p.

Bonus: A new challenger emerges!
