When I went on the computer this morning I saw this video on comingsoon.net. I really liked it. I've seen the other mortal combat movies when I was a kid and I liked them but adding this real world modern day touch makes it pretty sweet.
And it's been confirmed that this video was directed as pitch to the WB for a revamp of the Mortal Kombat series and so far reaction has been great so a movie might be in the works.
That trailer ROCKED! Love the MK series. 'Nostalgia'
looks really good the frame of sub zero looks awesome feel like a 10 year old kid again lol
Besides peoples names that had nothing to do with Mortal Kombat. Jonny Cage was the only one that even had the right back story.
Where the hell is Gorah, the dude from the cover of MK3 (or was it MK4?), with four arms and all that?! He was my favorite character outside of Sub-Zero!
got all warm and fuzzy inside
You mean Goro? If I remember correctly there were 2 four armed guys. Think it was Goro and Kintaro or somethin.
I've always liked Scorpion...GET OVER HERE! lol
That's right. Goro. He was cool, I remember he was impossible to beat as the last boss, my cousin and I spent hours trying to figure him out. Awesome to play as, though. You can't go wrong with 4 arms.
But hey, sounds interesting. It was time for a change. The real story makes AWFUL movies
goro was easy to beat, most boss's have cheat tactics u could use, MK rocks
hey, so what about the original protagonists like Liu Kang and Raiden? Is this some alternate universe thing?
oh, and by the way, jeri ryan as sonya blade makes me happy. i want to go there.
Rats! Apparently, this is not a real movie.
"Jeri Ryan's twitter confirms that it's NOT A REAL MOVIE. It's a proof of concept video, made to sell Warner Brothers on the idea. According to Jeri Ryan, "I did it for a friend." Warner Brothers may or may not actually do this. Let's keep our fingers crossed that they do!"
How did it have nothing to do with Mortal Kombat?
I thought the first one was an ok movie. Not great but what you expect from a video game movie. Second one was so bad but I still watch it whenever its on. Its one of those so bad its funny movies.
None of the back story was right. Jax and Sonya are US Special Forces not cops. Reptile is a raptor from another realm. Baraka is a nomad from Outworld not what they said he was. Mortal Kombat was about saving Earth from an Outworld invasion not to see who was a good fighter.
So with no mention of the different realms or the invasion from Shao Khan it doesnt work. It has nothing to do with the game.They only used the names and the video games name thats it. Fans of the games are not gonna be happy with it.
i like how they're going in a different direction. looks like a 'darker' movie like Dark Knight. they already covered the video game story line in the first movie. looks like they're keeping the tournament part of the story at least.
Yes, I agree. Transformers, GI Joe, Karate Kid, Mortal Kombat, Dark Knight...... Hollywood pretty much ruin my childhood to teenage...nice.
Then why call it Mortal Kombat? Im not gonna make a movie called My Little Ponies and then have Ninja Turtles everywhere.
They have run out of original ideas or are to scared to try. But I guess its the populations fault. If they feed us garbage and people keep paying for it you can expect more garbage.
dur...why wouldn't they call it mortal kombat? it's no coincidence that their names are scorpion, sub-zero, sonya etc.
obviously you like the franchise, but you don't have to ask stupid questions
I guess I should call this a BMW.
I just saw this. I have to say...that was AWESOME! I really hope this gets made. Looks sweet.
@the people saying it doesnt keep with the original - lets be real here not too many people who played the game even know the backstory that in depth. I know fanboys pretty much exist just to complain ab stuff like that - but get over it. It looks sick and the new direction is a lot better and simpler than some of the sci fi elements of the original.
Screw a movie, they are coming out with a new game and it looks incredible.
the alternate universe concept is used quite a bit in the comic book/anime world, isn't it? what's with all the hatin'?
It just makes no sense. Why use the names when it has nothing to do with the game? I am not really complaining and nothing will come from this because hollywood sucks and they would rather make Transformers 3: The quest to rip people off.
Not really purist more confused. If I see Mortal Kombat there are certain things that need to be in place. Taking a name like that and then having nothing to do with is just wrong.
Yeah, the game looks cool too.
agreed yes it looks cool but mortal combat has always been a battle of 2 worlds it looks really cool and if a movie was made i'd go see it but the back story of sub zero and scorpions ninja clans is too epic to be left out lol
Thanks, that looks sick, I might have to get the game......
