Posted Wed May 11, 2011 at 08:00 AM PDT by

The 2010 live-action videogame adaptation planned for Blu-ray in July has been fully detailed.

As previously reported, Starz/Anchor Bay will release 'Tekken' on Blu-ray on July 19.

Ever since its premiere in 1994, the Tekken videogame has thrilled gamers and lovers of futuristic adventure across the entire world. With millions of games sold on such gaming platforms as PS3, Xbox360 and PSP, it seemed that Tekken would forever be confined to the limited graphics of gaming consoles. Until now...

Directed by Dwight H. Little (“Bones,” 'Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers'), 'Tekken' stars Jon Foo, Kelly Overton ('The Ring Two'), Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa ('Planet of the Apes,' 'Pearl Harbor,' 'Balls of Fury'), Ian Anthony Dale ('The Hangover'), Darrin DeWitt Henson ('Stomp The Yard,' 'Soul Food'), former world champion kick boxer Gary Daniels ('The Expendables'), MMA fighters Cung Le ('Pandorum,' 'Dragon Eyes'), and Roger Huerta, Luke Goss ('Hellboy II: The Golden Army,' 'Blade II'), and Tamlyn Tomita ('The Day After Tomorrow,' 'The Joy Luck Club.')

'Tekken' also features such fight superstars as Lateef Crowder, world-renowned expert in the Brazilian martial art Capoeira, and Anton Kasabov, multiple-time U.S., European and World Champion in Tae Kwon Do. Anticipation for 'Tekken’s release has been high ever since the film’s trailer was posted on YouTube in January 2010, with over 3.8M views to date!

The release will be a Blu-ray/DVD/Digital Copy combo pack with 1080p video, a Dolby TrueHD 5.1 soundtrack, and supplements include Stunt Stars: Tekken and a trailer.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $39.99.
