If I must explain the subject abbreviation, it's "King Of What The Fuck". And yes, it's SNK's much-beloved King Of Fighters' turn to be in the torturous Game-To-Movie Adaptation Hell, ruled by the Dark Lord Uwe Boll.

More on the plot details (if any) after the break.

If you are still here after the horrendous bastard of a trailer and a making-of and a interview session (a most economical option), read on.

According to movieblog, the King of Fighters movie will introduce a new science fiction spin into the setting established in the games’ universe by following the surviving members of three legendary fighting clans who are continually whisked away to other dimensions by an evil power. As the fighters enter each new world they battle that universe’s native defenders, while the force that brought them seeks to find a way to invade and infect our world.

And the unceremonious version of preview from The Daily Zombies for the predestined Dragonball: Evolution of 2010, based on the abomination we just survived. Like most other cream-of-the-crop fighting game-to-movie adaptations (if there is no sarcasm detected, stop reading this right away), we have the usual suspects here:
Inherent plot that have next-to-zero connection with the source game (it's ok to go Sci-fi, but other dimensional warlord invading earth?).
Total character face-lift (Iori Yagami? The horror?).
Caucasian actors portraying the main characters that are supposed to be Japanese (Hell, he's called Kyo Kusanagi for crying out loud).
Erratic focus on characters that are not the main protagonists, but taken the lead in the film due to the celebrity playing the role (the choice for Maggie Q as Mai Shiranui must have broke a many Otaku's heart)

And like all adaptations, you might like to argue that transition brings about inevitable changes, then in that very same vein, I will not refute that rhetoric and suggest the film makers to simply save up the money spent for securing the filming rights and just proceed ahead and let loose their "creativity" in an original B' grade action flick. It is obvious that they are cashing on the game'strong fanbase and massive library of unique characters. Why can't they just cut the pretentious Matrix look and just put on the game's flashy colors? Enough rantings, let's just hope the visions of this film can be erased from our mind sooner than Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li.

The parting shot has Ray Park (in a professional freefall from hell from his role of Snake-eyes in the abysmal blockbuster G.I.Joe: Rise Of The Cobra) playing the role of archvillain, Rugal Bernstein, checking out Maggie Q's cameltoe or something.
