According to the Internet Movie Database, the recent Mortal Kombat trailer is for a film. After the trailer was released yesterday, there was a lot of speculation over whether it was for a new Mortal Kombat movie or a new game.
The new Mortal Kombat game is still coming...
With motion capture fatalities :D
i wasnt gonna play it or watch it anyway
Does that mean you'll disappear for your last trick?
cause we all know how 'great' the MK movies were and MK hasnt had a decent game since MK 2 all MK did was put blood in games something thats VERY common in games nowadays and now that every game has it MK doesnt stand out that much
Woah Binky Ultimate MK 3 was awesome too
If there is a movie there will be a game tie in, for better or for worse.
Actress Jeri Ryan, the actress portraying Sonya Blade in the video, has confirmed via Twitter that this is a short film created by a director to sell Warner Bros. on his Mortal Kombat pitch. "It's not a game trailer. Actually was made for the director to sell WB on his vision for a reimagined MK film,"
But you cannot deny, that 7 minute "trailer" is on-the-money brilliance. And it's nice to see that some choreographers still know how to shoot a fight scene. None of that frantic swing-the-camera-around-while- cutting-every-half-a-second nonsense that's prevalent in Hollywood these days.
Yeah it was a good watch and feedback from the public was really promising. Maybe it was a ploy to see if people liked what they saw and possibly use that as the basis for demand for the film?
Completely agreed. The trailer was awesome and what you said about action sequences nowadays exactly reflects what I feel. Bubble.
The re-invention of reptile was crazy
As long as it returns to the roots (the new game I mean) and the movie doesn't suck, I'm in.
They said theyre listening to the fans and aiming for an adult rating like the good old days. Goodbye teen rated mortal kombat suckiness.
I loved it, great variation on the mythology. I like it when people try new things, If this does turn into a movie it will most likely be a DTV. Oh and it was a shame not seeing Michael jai White fight, that guy has mad skills. BTW, for any website to use IMDB as a 'source' is just plain silly, IMDB is mostly user generated information.
is made up of user generated information
Awesome, so true :D
touché lol. Lets just say that IMDB is not at all monitored, the information lacks any sort of credibility. It has had some incredibly incorrect information. Its like wikipedia, alot of the info is good, but shouldn't be considered gospel.
Yes dont take this as a movie pitch to WB, just because some random guy said so, it's likely though for sure... But could be a movie, could be a short film for the release of a mortal kombat game (ala, alan wake did it, halo did it) giving that hollywood style. Personally, i hope this is the film, Jeri Ryan, phhwaor, i hope the attire is a black thong and green tights, yo!
I'm sorry but Mortal Kombat doesn't translate well into a realistic medium. Its like trying to do a realistic re-imaging of Star Wars, it looks silly on contrived.
Did you watch the trailer? I thought it was a great translation.
Of course I did. It looks wrong. The reason the original Mortal Kombat movie did so well is because it stayed faithful to the game. So is subzero going to throw ice cubes of death in this movie? Come'on.
They went pretty creative for reptile and baraka so a little imagination for Sub Zero would translate him equally well. Maybe his ice throwing will be more mechanical? A device prehaps? Maybe they will get creative on a cellular level like they did with reptile? Either way, it can be done but of course, just because it CAN be done doesn't mean it will be done well.
What a thoroughly well researched article there. I gather that, while he was on the IMDB anyway, he would also have noticed that there is indeed a Mortal Kombat game ( http://www.imdb.com/title/t... due out THIS YEAR (3 years before this film), so this could quite possibly have been a trailer or teaser for the game instead? Why release a trailer for a film that is both on hold and not due for release for another 3 years, yet release nothing for a game that's supposedly due out in a few months?
2013...we'll be long dead before then....
That trailer was awesome
im interested =)
Baraka should have bigger sharper teeth to be more like the Baraka we all know aside from that the realistic aproach seems fine but it should have more asian mythology into the characters than rather make Reptile and Baraka compete brainless morons.
