Update: So the trailer was actually made as a “proof of concept” video to WB; to demonstrate the director’s new vision for the franchise.
This is undoubtedly Mortal Kombat and it’s pushing all the right buttons for me.
They’re name dropping Mortal Kombat characters and catch phrases. It’s a much darker tone and they have Michael Jai White and Jeri Ryan on board. This could be for a movie, but it also could be for the Mortal Kombat game reboot. Considering E3 2010 is next week, I think it’s for that. Will it be a movie tie in as well? Warner Bros. does own the franchise now, so it is possible.
All I know is that this is the first time in a long time that I was excited for anything Mortal Kombat related.
