Hollywood has had its fair share of historically troubled productions. Whether it was casting changes, actor deaths, fired directors, in-production rewrites, constant delays, budget cuts, or studio edits, these films had every intention to be a blockbuster but were beset with unforeseen disasters. Sometimes huge hits, sometimes box office bombs. Rarer still are the movies that, while they're shooting, seem like disasters in the making but wind up being classics.
In the mid-nineties, Capcom's “Street Fighter 2” was the hottest video game in the world. Introducing the one on one fight game, it was only a matter of time until Hollywood came knocking, and when they did, the game was transformed into an unrecognizable big-screen adventure that, years later, is much maligned among fans of the series. Join us as we dig into what went wrong with this big-budget flick, from star Jean-Claude Van Damme's personal demons, to a meddling video game company, to a terminally ill co-star (Raul Julia). All is revealed in “WTF Happened to Street Fighter”!
