Schadenfreude Sloth is a big fan of the Street Fighter movie

The big surprise of the weekend was that The Jonas Brothers concert movie failed to take number one, landing in number two behind Madea Goes to Jail, which took number one for the second week.  Elsewhere, Fox’s Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li, opened all the way down at number eight, with just $4.65 million.  At this rate, it may have trouble earning back its $60 million budget (how did cost this much? it looks like a student film).  Luckily, its 0% rating on RottenTomatoes is still safe.

The question remains: who the hell actually wanted a Street Fighter movie?  Even the people getting paid to be in it must’ve been thinking, “well, if you say so, I guess…”  The only thing good to come out of this is that Chris Klein’s performance is one for the time crapsule.  Check out the clips after the jump – he’s Nic Cage in Wicker Man bad.  In fact, this may just be worth seeing.
