Tekken: Blood Vengeance now has an official US release date: July 26.

Okay, let's break this down. On the one hand, it's a movie based on a game. That never turns out well.

Then again, it's directed by the same guy who created the undeniably rad opening cinematics for the last two Tekken games.

Then again, it's a videogame movie.

Then again, it's being scripted by the guy who wrote the screenplay for Cowboy Bebop.

Then again, videogame movie.

Then again, the surprisingly solid CG work is being animated by the same company responsible for the gorgeous and technically stunning Appleseed series.

Then again, repetition.

Then again, velociraptor with boxing gloves.

I'm glad we worked this out.
