Isn't the existing Street Fighter DVD non-anamorphic? "Extreme" or not, it'll be nice to have anamorphic widescreen and HD versions of this film available.

I was a huge video game nut when this film was first released and I have a bit of a soft spot for it. It's not great, but I don't think it's as bad as it's usually made out to be. The upcoming "Chun Li" movie looks much worse.

Wasn't this Raul Julia's last appearance on film? What way to end a career!
