Jin Kazama is seen fighting his foes at a tournament in some of the new images, which also give a look at other characters such as Nina Williams and Anna Williams.
Warner Bros. has unleashed a bunch of new images from action sci-fi "Tekken". Making its way out via the film's official site, most of the stills highlight the battle between the major character and his enemies as he joins a fighting tournament. Additionally, other characters such as Candice Hillebrand's Nina Williams and Marian Zapico's Anna Williams are highlighted in several pictures.
Based on a popular fighting game series of the same name, "Tekken" is set in 2039. After World Wars destroy much of civilization, territories are no longer run by governments, but by corporations the mightiest of which is Tekken. In order to keep the masses down, Tekken sponsors the Iron Fist Tournament in which fighters compete to the death for ultimate glory and receive a lifetime of stardom and wealth.
The film will follow street fighter Jin Kazama, who joins the tournament to seek revenge of his mother's death that he blames upon Tekken's powerful and controlling Chairman, Heihachi Mishima. As he tries to get close enough to Mishima by winning the tournament, Kazama begins to uncover his own past and inner demons as well as exposing a dark underbelly to Tekken that threatens the very existence of humanity.
Jon Foo stars as Jin Kazama while Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa plays Heihachi Mishima. Moreover, the martial arts film has Luke Goss, Gary Daniels and many others among the cast. Directed by Dwight H. Little, the flick is scheduled to hit theaters across the U.S. starting April 5.
