Chun-Li’s (Kristin Kreuk) street fighting skills overpower some hoodlums in “Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li.”
PINELLAS COUNTY – A number of new movie releases will hit theaters Feb. 27, including the following:
“Jonas Brothers: The 3D Concert Experience” – The Jonas Brothers will hit the big screen in this high-energy Walt Disney Pictures rockumentary feature film event filmed in Disney Digital 3-D.
The film blends excerpts from the brothers’ Burning Up concert tour, including guest performances by Demi Lovato and Taylor Swift, with exclusive behind-the-scenes footage, off-the-wall segments, the never-before-heard song “Love Is on Its Way,” swarming fans and a lot of JB-style humor.
Filmed during their 2008 Burnin’ Up concert tour, which drew more than 1 million fans, “Jonas Brothers: The 3D Concert Experience” promises to deliver crisp imagery via Disney Digital 3-D, which proved to be a great medium for transporting audiences directly into the center of Jonas Brothers’ dynamic and fun performances and highlights why the three brothers – Kevin, 21; Joe, 19; and Nick, 16 – are America’s newest superstars. As the motion picture reveals, the Jonas Brothers have the talent, the character and the drive to stay on top, entertaining audiences and enthralling their fans for a long, long time. Rated G.
“Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li” – Powerful forces are converging on the streets of Bangkok.
They are warriors, some of whom possess extraordinary abilities, all of whom are determined to see their side prevail. Some fight for us; the others for unlimited power. Now, they are preparing for the ultimate battle – of terror vs. beauty, light vs. darkness and good vs. evil.
The forces of darkness are led by Bison (Neal McDonough), a crime boss of seemingly limitless power, and whose past holds a shocking secret. Bison’s syndicate, Shadaloo, is taking over the slums of the Thai capital, a task overseen by Balrog (Michael Clarke Duncan), a massively built enforcer and killer. Also in Bison’s employ is the assassin Vega (Taboo, of the group The Black Eyed Peas), a masked talon-wielding warrior, whose weapon is tailor-made for slashing and stabbing attacks. Bison’s attache is the beautiful but deadly Cantana (Josie Ho).
These vivid characters and their world are long known to fans of the iconic videogame “Street Fighter,” which Capcom released in 1987. Rated PG-13.
“Crossing Over” – Opening in limited release from the Weinstein Company is “Crossing Over,” a drama about U.S. citizenship and immigration.
While many can earn citizenship legally through a lengthy bureaucratic process, others find themselves out of luck in a country where virtually anything can be bought. Sex, violence and betrayal become their currency. Some wait in line for permission to enter the country while others take matters into their own hands.
Working for Immigration and Customs Enforcement in Los Angeles, Max Brogan (Harrison Ford) is an agent sworn to enforce the nation’s immigration laws. He deals with the thousands that try to cross over into America in search of a better life. As seen through the lives of Brogan, his partner Hamid Baraheri (Cliff Curtis), Denise Frankel (Ashley Judd), an immigration defense attorney; and her husband, applications adjudicator Cole Frankel (Ray Liotta), the impact of immigration goes beyond the job and defines their lives. Rated R.
