The Strange Mortal Kombat Promo.

So im sure by now we have all seen this crazy new promo trailer for a new Mortal Kombat movie online... If not here it is!!!

I was wondering what does everyone think about this idea. IMO i feel that if this director is allowed to make this movie that it will be one heck of a movie and it would seem that he is very passionate about treating the franchise with a great deal of respect.

Some folks seem to think this is the wrong direction to take the story but then again we saw what happened with the original 2 films that damn near followed the game. I mean honestly its what needed to be done just no one had the balls to do this.

So without further adue lets BS. What does everyone think. Does everyone like it or do they hate it.

I think this looks for lack better words. FUCKING AWESOME, I'm definitely going to see this opening day and if it's as good as I think it'll be I'm going to buy it.

I quite enjoyed the mortal kombat films to be fair.

This short still just looks a bit too silly to be a 'serious reboot', but i like the sentiment. If they can get rid of the jarring cliches and make the charcters properly believable then i could definitely get behind this.

Yeah. It just kind of looks like a shock film with Mortal Kombat in the title.

i think its a marketing ploy. its odd that this leaks out at the same time the new mk game trailer ces out but really though if tis gets made it will destroy the box office not only this think of the cash cow warner is sitting on and dont realize it

So far Reptile was made completely believable i did some research and the skin condition mentiond he suffers from is real the pics of the babys in the trailer are actual pics.

Baraka well althogh a lil fantasic makes perfect sense for an explanation what i wonder is if the director will include the outworld aspect as well and yet make me believe that this is somewhat feasable. although if yo think of it the idea of a parallel universe has been deemed possible scientifically

I think it looks cool in all honesty and I would check it out.

one thing I want is the ability to split my fire everywhere, it makes no sense that a squad of 10 guard or marines or whatever all have to fire at 1 target with everything, is the guy with the lascannon not smart enough to realize maybe he would be better off firing at the massive tank looming overhead instead of the little man no bigger than a squat running at him, or is that far too complex for the 10yr olds?

It isn't really mortal kombat, the backround story for mortal kombat isn't in the movie. It's just a gory action flick. BFD...
