We first heard about Legendary and Capcom's plans for a live-action Street Fighter reboot last April, and updates have been few and far between since. Now, the first promo poster for the movie has been unveiled at the Las Vegas Licensing Expo (via Collider).

As is generally the case with these Expo reveals, the poster doesn't feature any characters from the movie, but does give us a look at the video game-inspired title treatment. The design could suggest that the feature will stick as close as possible to the aesthetic of the games, but, again, it's best not to rely too much on this initial licencing artwork as an indicator of what's to come.

The new Street Fighter film is being helmed by Talk To Me directors Danny and Michael Philippou, who spoke to Collider about the project last year.

"I think it's awesome that we have such a connection with the game and to the characters, and there's not like a pre-established big film franchise where we have to fall in line [with] an overall plot," said Danny. "I think that we'd have the freedom to create what that overall arc could be if it was gonna be a bunch of films."

"And also, we'd love the chance to do an action film. We'd love the chance to do big set pieces of a big budget because even on our YouTube stuff, we're designing stunt rigs that had never been done before, and to do that on a grand scale, man, I feel like we could create something no one's ever seen before."

Michael added, "And I think it's like, diving into the lore of Street Fighter, all the characters, where they come from has been so exciting. You just get endless ideas, so putting them to the screen, yeah, I think we can make something special."

Check out the artwork at the link below.

The Street Fighter video game series remains one of the most popular fighting games franchises of all time, but hasn't fared very well with live-action adaptation up until now. The 1994 movie starring Jean-Claude Van Damme and Kylie Minogue has amassed a cult following over the years, but is still widely regarded as a misfire, and the less said about 2009's Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li the better!

We know next to nothing about this latest take on the property, so it's impossible to say whether it will break the trend. But the movie certainly has a pair of very talented filmmakers behind it, and they sound confident in their ability to deliver.

Talk To Me and the YouTube work of this duo has me a little hopeful.

We need Street Fighter to return to the animated space too.

@GhostDog -

Talk To Me was such a pleasant surprise. Really hoping to see these guys work on a CBM, preferably something horror related like Penance for Marvel or Etrigan for DC.
TheVisionary25 - 5/22/2024, 8:33 AM
@GhostDog - I remember watching that as a kid and enjoying it!!.

I even remember enjoying the 90’s animated series as a kid.

GhostDog - 5/22/2024, 8:56 AM
@DrReedRichards - I can see them tapping into so many different spaces well: horror, fantasy, sci fi, etc.
grouch - 5/22/2024, 7:50 AM
they won't even fight in the streets

@grouch - HAHAHAHA!

It would be really nice if it was built around a fighting tournament. Mortal Kombat missed the mark by not featuring the tournament in the first movie.

Everyone always wants to make the first movie so big that they fail to establish the core of what these franchises are.
dragon316 - 5/22/2024, 8:15 AM
@mountainman - first mortal komabt felt like prequel before they make sequel to be big tournament for new fans oh mortal komabt 4 where will this take place tournament of course how original maybe they did it change things up for repetitive thing in game and sequel will be direct tournament as they say who cares really games never did that until PlayStation one or two that gave games cut scenes gave original fans what they want kinda more violent tattoo don’t like to much I can accept mortal komabt movies look at same category as Godzilla, transformers all people want to see giant monsters and transformers fight not much story to transformers good vs bad good wins all that changes is characters in it.,
Add transformers to max fury road you get transformers apocalyptic movie
TheBlueMorpho - 5/22/2024, 9:42 AM
@mountainman -

I would say make two separate type of Street Fighter movies.

1st being the traditional tournament movie with Ken & Ryu bring the main protagonists. Sagat being the main villain. Keep the Street Fighter cast small. Maybe Akuma hinted at.

2nd being an action adventure/spy oriented movie with Guile and Chun Li as the main protagonists with M. Bison and Shadaloo Organization as your antagonists.
mountainman - 5/22/2024, 9:44 AM
@TheBlueMorpho - I like that. I just feel like we are going to get something like the old movie where it’s this big global big budget movie, and the fighter characters like Ryu and Ken are going to get lumped in for no reason.

Keep the first one smaller. Tournament based. Then you can go bigger after that.

It's actually kinda incredible that they never capitalized on making good SF movies and shows in either animated or live-action. The original Street Fighter 2 animated is still by far the best thing they ever did and yet it's like the people in charge are totally against ever making something cool like that again. Only other thing SF related that's worth watching is that fan-made film Street Fighter: Assassin's Fist, I think it was called, which was quite amazing.
four20smoke - 5/22/2024, 9:00 AM
@WarMonkey - oh man, if u haven't seen street fighter the animated movie you should check it out. IMO 9ne of the greatest video games cartoon movies ever. And then there was that street fight.

And then they had an animated series that started off from when Ryu and Ken get training and Japan and it goes through Akuma and bison. Oh man, that was sooooo good
WarMonkey - 5/22/2024, 9:14 AM
@four20smoke - I was referring to that animated Street Fighter movie when I mentioned "2". I should have clarified that better. And ya, that was one of the best!!!

I never knew that animated series existed, I just looked into it. I only knew of the other one that was pretty awful that ran around the same time and was kinda a spin-off from the Jean-Claude movie. This series actually looks pretty decent! Looks almost like an anime version of that Assassin's Fist movie minus Bison stuff. Thanks!
TheVisionary25 - 5/22/2024, 8:36 AM
I haven’t seen Talk to Me or their YouTube work as of yet but they seem to be genuinely excited about it so that’s good , I wish em the best of luck!!.

Interested to see the take they’ll do given that the series has so much lore and a lot of characters…

I’m sure my boys Ryu & Ken will be in it though!!.

3rd or 4th time taking a crack at this
HashTagSwagg - 5/22/2024, 9:05 AM
Don't know how the hell they could top The Legend of Chun-li but they're welcome to try.

Jaspion - 5/22/2024, 9:15 AM
Didn't even know that was happening.

The best things ever made from SF:

The YouTube series

User Comment Image

The SFII Victory anime (I despise that ugly ass american cartoon)

User Comment Image

And of course the 1994 SFII movie

Hopefully it will be something on that level.
TheVisionary25 - 5/22/2024, 9:34 AM
@Jaspion - damn , I enjoyed the carton growing up but maybe might feel differently

I do remember watching some of this and liking it them more , might check them out

I distinctly remember a Vega and Chun Li fight.
lazlodaytona - 5/22/2024, 9:20 AM
Dude, if Jean Claude Van Damne doesn't at least make a cameo in this then forget this movie.
supermanrex - 5/22/2024, 9:33 AM
i remember being so furious that guile didn't have his [frick]ing hair!!! that movie was horrible but it was adorable bad cause it was part of my youth and the 90s nerdscape!
ObserverIO - 5/22/2024, 9:50 AM
Could we get into some of the more modern stuff, SF4, 5 and 6? Hope so. All the previous material has been mined to death over the last few decades. Spice it up.

I can't believe they're going with this generic logo.

That is so lazy. That logo was originally used for the actions figures from 2000-2001. Then Udon comics started using it for their issues.

They couldn't be bothered to make a unique logo like Mortal Kombat?
Killuminatic - 5/22/2024, 10:16 PM
@DarthAlgar - These things are usually temporary placeholders.
JobinJ - 5/22/2024, 10:32 AM
I don’t care what anyone says. I thought the 1994 movie was great fun

That shit doesn’t look legit. Just looks like the Udon Comics version of the logo that BossLogic photoshopped.

Until I see actual and official released images, I doubt this is real.

The only thing that anyone got right with the Street Fighter property was, Street Fighter: Assassin’s Fist on YouTube.

And Raul Julia’s M. Bison, other than that, everything else has been trash.

That said….
Who is playing Akuma in 6 right now??

EgoEgor - 5/22/2024, 11:50 AM
Do an Arcane style version, closer to the style of the newer video games.
FlixMentallo21 - 5/22/2024, 12:48 PM
You wanna use a good basis? Draw from the Udon comics. THERE’S your story and character basis, and it’s good.

I just realized no one made a joke about "Tuesday". This disappoints me immensely! This community can and should be better than this!!
