Now, the Mortal Kombat series have been hitting a slump lately. Armageddon was the last game to come out of the main series and it was met with mixed results. Mortal Kombat vs DC was the last game to come out of the franchise and it took an interesting take of the series. Critics gave it pretty good reviews, but a lot of fans were disappointed in it, mainly because of the T rating and the lack of real fatalities. Plus, sales were pretty average. Personally, I liked the game mostly because of the fighting mechanic (and I wanted to kick Superman's ass).
In film news, Mortal Kombat movie series has been through hell. After the disaster of Annihilation (which is probably the worst fighting video game movie adaptation of all time), no one knew if a third movie would see the sight of day. Recently Warner Bros. announced that the next movie would be a reboot of the series.
This trailer shows a very different take of the series, possibly going back to their roots a little. It looks more mature, more violent, more modernized. more....realistic approach. It even got Hollywood stars in it such as Michael Jai White and Jeri Ryan in it. That's got to be a sign for something, or it could be a very expensive fan made project.
E3 is around the corner so it could be a teaser of the video game. It could be a teaser for the movie in a way. It could be both, or an expensive fan made project. Thoughts?
Edit: I found some new info about this from twitchfilm.com and latinoreview.com saying that THIS has nothing to do with the new video game thats coming out.
Edit: Some of the cast in the teaser:
- Jacks : Michael Jai White
- Scorpion: Ian Anthony Dale
- Johnny Cage: Matt Mullins
