He recently spoke to Yahoo Entertainment about the film's gory practical effects, the rigorous training and filming process and how the latest adaptation of the popular video game franchise is a step forward in terms of diversity onscreen.

“It does make a difference in regards to the way that you're seeing on screen,” Tan says. “Because the more that we open up doors and people are familiar with seeing Asian faces in a cool way and in a culturally positive way, I think that it will eventually help.”
