Trailer

^Watch and discuss.

It is not understood whether this is a trailer for a movie, or a promo for the new Mortal Kombat game that is coming out. But the video is a good watch and seems really interesting. Plus, I'd be totally stoked about Michael Jai White playing Jax. :D

it's not a trailer for either; it's a promo video made to help sell the idea of a new mortal kombat film.

I wouldn't mind, I always watch those crappy movies based off of video games. Squee for Michael Jai White, btw.

I am conflicted.

The trailer looks like it has a lot of promise for a more realistic gritty version of Mortal Kombat in which their all psycho killers instead of demons and monsters from another world.

Then again, The original two movies were so bad it was awesome and I want to see if this one can hold a torch against the fans of the original Mortal Kombat movies.

Despite the more realistic grittyness of it the movie does still seem pretty corny.

All the lines were pretty funny, and the "get over here!" at the end was icing on the cake of corniness. ^_^

I'm also conflicted by the corn.

I'm also conflicted whether this belongs in chit chat or video games.

No, the "Get over here!" caused thousands of fanboys who played the game as kids to squeal and piss their pants in memory of when Scorpion used to do that to you... ( Unless you were the one playing Scorpion ).

My only gripe is they killed of Johnny Cage so early...I mean, yeah, he dies all the time, but he's still Johnny Cage and needs more air time than just a fight scene.

And I didn't see Liu Kang anywhere, where's the golden boy of the gods!? ( Oh right, no gods in this one, no Christopher Lambert playing Rayden either. )

Johnny had a funny death in Annihilation. Even though Lui Kang is the main character people don't seem to like him that much but LOVE Scorpion and Sub-Zero.

@redx1: Well its more for a movie than a game, even if it is based off a game.

Believe the pitch was to Warner Bros, if wiki is to believe.

Like I said to Tai last night, I'm conflicted. While it does look intriguing, I have a soft spot in my heart for the series, so to see them toss out nearly 20 years of MK canon (kanon?) for the sake of a reboot leaves me on the fence. Though I was pretty interested that they managed to get Jeri Ryan to play Sonya Blade in her brief appearance.

I think the trailer looked awesome! It got me pumped! Hope they use these actors in the real movie.

The movie is wrong, and you are wrong if you think it looks good.

Story telling is funny like that. People say its subjective, and it is... Too a point. When it becomes this muddled and confused, it isn't good, it's muddled and confused.



The Gritty and Realistic take is somehow less believable to me, because they are stretching for explanations that could create fantasy creatures realistically. It doesn't work like that. In trying to make things more realistic, they've made it more cartoony than ever, but see, now it's cartoony with the audacity of claiming its based in fact.


The only good thing about this: If they do make a new Mortal Kombat, Michael Jai White is perfect for the part.
