Posted by Webmistress on 2008-12-30
Looks like the movie posters for Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun Li have already made there way into the movie theaters. Thus far they've been spotted at the Pacific Theaters in Glendale, California. Check out the poster below:
Big thanks to chunli2 for the info and photos of the poster!
quote:"Hello wonderful ladies! We here at GBD have been planning a really special event with Tamara Lelie at Time Out Retreat for teen girls in California. This newsletter is simply to provide you with some details so you can get your projects in, and we can hopefully see you in March!! Let all your gal friends from 13-17 know about this and get them involved as well!"
quote:"I kind of couldn't believe it when Kristin Kreuk cut off all her hair earlier this year. It reminded me of my friend Sandy Bucher from junior high, who had the most gorgeous blonde hair all the way down her back -- and in high school she chopped it off. What a waste, I thought. But Kristin managed to make her choppy bob look unbelievably chic at the Spike TV Video Game Awards on December 14, especially since she paired it with shimmery tawny shadow traced along the upper and lower lashlines, impossibly long lashes and a glossy nude lip. All of a sudden, I'm not so unhappy about the shorter 'do."
I would first like you give Kathy a shout-out…. She has been amazing with this blog, and has truly livened it up with her humor, intelligence and her outlook on life. Kendra and I love love love her writing! Kendra is doing well with baby Marcus, and is officially able to get out of her place from time to time… which is REALLY good because she was going a little stir-crazy. I am done on the Ville. I had a wonderful few months and will miss many of my Smallville peeps dearly.
So…. during this holiday lull, we are throwing out a really exciting contest for all teen girls from 13-17 in the L.A. area. If you are NOT in L.A. but are willing to get yourself there, that is fine too. A newsletter saying the exact same thing will be going out tonight or tomorrow… If you have questions just comment them, or e-mail them. If there are FAQs, I will post the answers before I leave on the 25th."

The CW's Official Description for Smallville episode "Bulletproof":
quote:"JOHN JONES IS SHOT — Clark (Tom Welling) discovers John Jones (guest star Phil Morris) was shot while working as a police officer, so Clark dons the uniform and goes undercover to find the culprit. Meanwhile, Lana (Kristin Kreuk ) confronts Tess (Cassidy Freeman) and tells her Lex isn’t the man she thinks he is. Lana’s shocking news forces Tess to reevaluate her position as the head of Luthorcorp. Morgan Beggs directed the episode written by Bryan Miller"
quote:"We've got Kristin Kreuk as Chun-Li, Michael Clarke Duncan as Balrog, Neal McDonough as Bison, and Taboo from the Black Eyed Peas as Vega (my personal favorite character from the game and from the film. Alas, Vega doesn't get much screen time as I'd have liked. Perhaps in the sequel?)
The marketing gurus at Fox are putting the finishing touches on the trailer and poster even as we speak - I daresay they will be online within a week and in theaters shortly thereafter! Woo hoo!"

Thanks to FeiLongEX and SultanOfSix for the heads up!
Kristin's Smallville co-star Erica Durance (Lois Lane) had nice things to say about Kristin during an interview with eTalk:
quote:"It was really nice to have Kristin back on set. It doesn't always happen when you're working in this business that you get along with your cast members, but I do get along with her quite well and it was nice cause I got to actually see her and see how she's been doing."
quote:"Kristin Kreuk and Chris Klein, stars of Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li, told SCI FI Wire that the film remains true to the video game on which it's based.
Kreuk plays the title character and said Chun-Li's origin story is drawn from the game.
"It's about the character Chun-Li," she said in an interview on the red carpet for the Video Game Awards in Los Angeles over the weekend. "It's her origin story from when she was a little girl. She loses both of her parents. Her father is taken away. She doesn't know that, and she goes on a revenge journey and then eventually finds a teacher, a master to help her overcome her emotional attachments to getting her revenge so that she can actually see a greater good, and then go forth and fight from there."
quote:"First, on the red (white) carpet we had a chance to talk to Kristin Kreuk, who is best known for her work as Lana Lang on the series Smallville. Kreuk is also stepping into the shoes of one of our favorite fighting females in the 2009 movie Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li. We asked her about the most exciting experience she had while working on the film.
“There was this night that I was working on this huge crane over a river in Bangkok,” began Kreuk. “I was told by the stunt coordinator that I was going to jump over the railing and do a blast backflip, and then jump off the thing. And I asked him if he was joking with me. But he told me I could do it, that he knew I could do it and that I would be fine. So I said okay. And standing up there and looking down, I just remember thinking to myself…why did I agree to this? What am I doing here? And then I recognized how amazing the experience was and how lucky I was to be given the opportunity.”
We also asked if the fans she gained through her work in Smallville would pale in comparison by the fans gained through the Street Fighter movie adaptation.
“I don’t know if it will be bigger actually, we will have to see once the movie comes out. I think that it will be a similar base though, they are all very intense and they have the specific way that they want things to be because they have invested so much time into the characters. So I think they will be the same following”"
Lana is coming back after being away for a long time. The audience gets to find out what happened to her, what occurred during that time period. She’s very different when she comes back. Then she gets a beautiful send-off. She’s been a victim for so long, so she gets a beautiful send-off as a hero that her fans will really, really like.
Is this the last season of Smallville?
I don’t know. It depends on whatever goes on between Tom Welling and the powers that be. If there is another season, I won’t be there – that is all I know!
Tell us about Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li.
It’s the origin story of Chun-Li, what happens in her childhood and through her young adult years that causes her to become the fighter that she is. It’s kind of a spiritual journey in a lot of ways. A traditional kung-fu story where I’m very angry and going to go get revenge, but I find a master who teaches me to overcome my emotions so I can see the greater good, then become a stronger fighter because internally you have a greater strength."
Here's the official press release for the award show:

quote:"Long time, no chat! Our GBD team just got a whole lot bigger, smarter, poopier and significantly more tired. A lot has changed since we sent out a newsletter: Barack Obama is the new President of the USA (yay!), the global economic condition is kinda craptastic, Kendra has a beautiful and demanding baby boy, Kristin is back in the land of Small for two more weeks, our dear friend Brooke Estin has joined the blogging ranks, Skahahoo has truly stepped up in blog-land, a young lady named Sparklesoup will be contributing in the near future, and our GBD Board of Directors will be set up and in action soon. AND... we are about 3 steps away from building our Beta! "
Kristin's Smallville character Lana Lang has been listed as MSN'sHottest Sci-Fi Girls:
quote:"Lana Lang – Possibly the epitome of the girl next door, Lana, the exotic, yet traditionally beautiful brunette captured the heart of Superman himself. The once innocent, popular-yet-lonely girl has certainly grown into an assertive young woman over the past eight seasons. Lana has even been perceived as a good-girl-gone-bad, thanks to the influence of Lex Luthor."
quote:"Not to be confused with the Sonny Chiba martial arts classic or the critically-panned 1994 action mess starring Jean-Claude Van Damme, the all-new Street Fighter movie centers around femme fatale Chun Li. The story is still under wraps, though we suspect it has something to do with a secret tournament, a gaggle of worldly brawlers and a nefarious scheme or two. Starring Kristin Kreuk (Smallville) in the title role and directed by Andrzej Bartkowiak (Doom, Cradle 2 the Grave), it's scheduled for release in late February of 2009.
Pitch it: Bloodsport meets Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, with fireballs! Ditch it: Did you see the first Street Fighter movie? Ugh."
quote:"I couldn't believe it. I was already sitting down for a while eating with my two girlfriends as she and Mark walked right past us to their table. When I first saw her it didn't register that it was her until I saw Mark. That's when I secretly (in my head) lost it. My poor friend was in mid-conversation when I started quietly to say Oh my god, Oh my god! She looked at me funny and I tried to whisper who just walked in. I have talked about my KK obsession with most of my friends so she knew exactly who I was talking about. For the rest of the evening I couldn't even pay attention to my friends. I was sitting in a perfect spot because Kristin was 3 tables away, but exactly behind my friend so it looked like I was looking at my friend but the whole time I was looking at KK."
quote:"while next year’s premiere of the live-action “Street Fighter Legends: Chun-Li” hopes to reinvent the brand on the big screen, there’s a lot for comics fans to take note of regarding the film, too. For one thing, the film stars “Smallville” actress Kristin Kreuk as the title character (and yet another object of fanboy affection). More importantly, though, the film has prompted UDON Entertainment to kick off yet another “Street Fighter” series of comics — and provide the preview we’ve posted after the jump.
For those not in the know, UDON’s been publishing some beautiful, yet somewhat under-the-radar, comics based on the “Street Fighter” line for quite a while now — and the new, four-issue “Chun-Li” miniseries looks to be more of the former and, with all of the hype surrounding the film, much less of the latter.
The series will launch in 2009 and feature the creative team behind “Street Fighter Legends: Sakura,” one of the most popular of previous “Street Fighter” projects, Ken Siu-Chong and Omar Dogan. "
