Tons of Behind the Scenes Footage from TEKKEN Featuring the Fights and Stunt Choreography

Discovery aired a behind-the-scenes special on the upcoming Tekken movie and thanks to the magic of YouTube, most of it is online.  While all the images and footage from the Tekken movie makes me think it’s going to be another terrible movie based on a video game,  I’ll admit to being impressed with the behind-the-scenes footage.  That’s because rather than focus on the plot and story, the special focuses on French actor Cyril Raffaelli and his amazing abilities as a free runner and what he brought to the film.  If you’re not familiar with Raffaelli, he did stunt work on Hitman, Transporter 2, Brotherhood of the Wolf, Angel-A and a number of other action movies.  You also might know him from his work in front of the camera as the lead in District 13 and District 13: Ultimatum.

During the behind-the-scenes footage he revealed Tekken has 9 major fight scenes and some of them have over 50 moves.  Even if the film is terrible, some of the fights are going to probably be very cool.  If you’ve been looking forward to Tekken, or just want to see how the stunt work was done, hit the jump.

As far as I know, Tekken doesn’t have a USA distributor, but it gets released in Japan on March 6 and ther film goes straight to DVD and Blu-ray in the UK on April 5.  Meaning, it won’t be long before you’ll be able to see it…

Tekken stars Jon Foo, Kelly Overton, Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa, Ian Anthony Dale, Cung Le, Darrin Dewitt Henson and Luke Goss

Here’s the synopsis thanks to wikipedia:

In the year of 2039, after World Wars destroy much of civilization as we know it, territories are no longer run by governments, but by corporations; the mightiest of which is the Mishima Zaibatsu. In order to placate the seething masses of this dystopia, Mishima sponsors the King of Iron Fist Tournament, or Tekken, in which fighters battle until one is left standing, who in turn will receive a lifetime of stardom and wealth. We are introduced to this violent world through the eyes of Jin Kazama, a rebellious teenage street fighter who enters the tournament in order to avenge the death of his mother that he blames upon the Mishima Zaibatsu’s most powerful and controlling chairman – Heihachi Mishima. He knows that the only way to get close enough to Mishima to kill him is to win the tournament, but in doing so, he 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.
