STREET FIGHTER: THE LEGEND OF CHUN-LI on DVD and Blu-ray

Based on one of the most successful and popular video game franchises of all time, STREET FIGHTER: THE LEGEND OF CHUN-LI takes its acclaimed heroine on an action-packed quest for justice when it debuts on three-disc Blu-ray and two-disc DVD June 30 from Twentieth Century Fox Home Ent. Featuring for a limited time the full-length animated comic movie, STREET FIGHTER ROUND ONE: FIGHT!, the film delves deeper into the origins of the STREET FIGHTER universe.

Starring Kristen Kreuk in the iconic title role, STREET FIGHTER: THE LEGEND OF CHUN-LI is a pulse-pounding, non-stop thrill ride. In this classic story of good vs. evil, Chun-Li (Kreuk) must stand strong against the Shadaloo syndicate who is determined to take over Bangkok slums already teeming with a dangerous criminal element. Directed by Andrzej Bartkowiak, who also directed the hit video game feature DOOM, STREET FIGHTER: THE LEGEND OF CHUN-LI also features high-impact performances from stars including Neil McDonough, Chris Klein, Michael Clarke Duncan, Moon Bloodgood and Taboo. Featured in the Guinness Book of World Records as the #1 all-time coin operated video game, and a brand new STREET FIGHTER next-gen counsel video game released in February 2009, the STREET FIGHTER name has stood the test of time with its lasting appeal. The STREET FIGHTER: THE LEGEND OF CHUN-LI Unleashed & Unrated Blu-ray Disc with Digital Copy and two-disc DVD editions include a bonus disc with the full-length animated comic movie, STREET FIGHTER ROUND ONE: FIGHT!, commentary by producers Patrick Aiello and Ashok Amritraj and cast members Neal McDonough and Chris Klein, behind-the scenes featurettes, deleted scenes, and more, and will be available for $39.99 U.S. / $49.99 Canada (BD w/ DC) and $29.98 U.S. / $43.48 Canada (DVD).

Previously adapted into a big-budget blockbuster in 1994, STREET FIGHTER, alongside many other videogame cinematic adaptations, has proved that moving pixels around can be a tricky process and one that tends to require an appropriate measure of vfx work. It's the job of Visual Effects Supervisor Marc Kolbe to blend the bigger-than-life action and fantasy of the videogame with the film's verisimilitude, a task that has to be necessarily balanced against the film's modest budget.

Kolbe has maintained an ever-growing list of credits in the vfx field since his earliest interest in the digital world in 1989, though it wasn't until INDEPENDENCE DAY in 1996 that he scored his first major credit doing previs compositing. Since then, Kolbe has served as supervisor on roughly two dozen projects, supervising teams of artists as small as ten and as big as 300, usually incorporating the work of at least four different facilities into the final product, bridging the gap between the film's director and the digital world.

For STREET FIGHTER, Kolbe's involvement wound up taking him as far as Southeast Asia for the film's principal photography. "[I joined] last minute," says Kolbe of his experience. "I was referred to the producers. They needed a supervisor and the film was starting to shoot in two weeks... Next thing I knew, I was on a plane to Thailand."

VFX work ran the international gamut, with work done by EFX, Sony Pictures Imageworks in India and Avatar VFX in Los Angeles.
