Street Fighter: signed Kylie poster
Kylie Minogue appears as Cammy in the action movie Street Fighter (Steven E de Souza, USA and Japan) in 1994.
Based on the video game of the same name, the action role was a departure for Kylie and included fight scenes.
Kylie looks very much the part here in a fighting pose with her finger on the trigger of a gun. Although it was a relatively small role, Kylie’s star power justifies her appearing on her own in this promotional poster.
Kylie’s action pose and steely gaze is reminiscent of other female action heroes of the time, including Linda Hamilton’s Sarah Connor in Terminator 2: Judgement Day (James Cameron, USA, 1991).
Although Cammy is a tough fighter her long hair is positioned in a way that accentuates her femininity, not unlike Lara Croft (who first appeared in the game Tomb Raider in 1996).
The poster is signed by Kylie.
