The Avenue Fighter franchise is getting a brand new film. Capcom introduced on Wednesday that it’s engaged on the movie in partnership with Legendary Leisure, with “extra information to return sooner or later” about the project.
The brand new movie isn’t a complete shock. On April third, The Hollywood Reporter reported that Legendary acquired the film and TV rights to the series. However now we formally know there’s a brand new film to look ahead to sooner or later down the road. And when you wait, you would possibly wish to make amends for the opposite Avenue Fighter motion pictures which have come out: the well-known “but for me, it was Tuesday” meme was spoken by Raúl Juliá’s M. Bison in the 1994 Street Fighter film, for instance, and there was a Chun-Li-focused film released in 2009.
The announcement of this new Avenue Fighter film is effectively timed, hitting simply a few months earlier than the June 2nd launch of the next major title in the series, Street Fighter 6. Hopefully, the film incorporates a few of the slick model we’ve seen from the sport up to now. With the movie, Capcom can be the newest firm to leap into non-game variations of its titles, following the instance of Nintendo’s Mario movie in addition to PlayStation’s The Last of Us HBO TV show and upcoming Gran Turismo film.
