The latest Street Fighter movie sucks. No doubt about it. But do you think Capcom give a damn about the quality of the movie? They might, but they care more about the money.
Speaking with GameDaily, Capcom PR man Chris Kramer says in response to haters of the current Chun-Li flick:
Critics were unkind to the first Street Fighter movie as well, but that film has been ridiculously profitable for Capcom over the last decade. The original SF movie still generates millions of dollars in royalties for Capcom every year, thanks to cable, foreign distribution, home video, DVD and Blu-ray sales.
Yes, but... imagine how ridiculously profitable the last movie - and the current one - would be if they were any good!
