Darker and Grittier take.

http://chud.com/articles/articles/23984/1/IS-THIS-VIDEO-FOR-THE-NEW-MORTAL-KOMBAT-MOVIE/Page1.html

UPDATE 2: Cat's out of the bag. This is for the movie, and it comes from the mind of genius fight choreographer Larnell Stovall. He's the guy who did the fights for the excellent Undisputed 3: Redemption, on DVD and Blu-Ray right now. I hope that this movie gets made with Larnell plotting the punches, because this guy isn't just a geek like us, he's also got an incredible skill and ambition to create the next generation of fight choreography.

UPDATE: For those saying this is a video tied in to E3 and a launch for a new Mortal Kombat game - I am 99% sure that is not the case. This is for a new Mortal Kombat movie.

This video just showed up in my inbox, and while I would normally dismiss it as the work of a fan with waaaaay too much disposable income, something caught my eye. A couple of weeks ago I had a chance to chat with someone involved in the latest iteration of the video game adaptation, and they told me that the hook of this movie was going to be 'realism.' He also told me a couple of other things that are reflected in this video, including the origins of Reptile and Baraka, which makes me believe that this is a proof of concept or demo reel, possibly for investors.

What do you think? Do you like a grimmer and grittier take on the game?

Hmm, I'd check it out since Michael Jai White is in it.

That actually looks pretty cool...but I'm a Mortal Kombat mark.

Sub Zero wins. Flawless victory. Fatality.

That movie looks badass! I was always a Mortal Kombat fan, but looking back at how stupid those Babalities and Friendship finishers are, wow are they stupid. Even the fatalities look lame... but that was due to not having the graphics we do now days.

Wow, I heard rumors about it.. Looks like it will be a great guy flick..

Usually they made sub-zero the quasi good guy.. Nice to see it changed up and unique..

true, those stupid things ruined the later games.

Hell no, whats not cool about a guy getting his skeleton pulled out of his head. The gore and over the top violence made the game super fun. The bad graphics just add that cool nostalgic feel.

Baraka looks like kind of lame. It looks alright.


I may just go see it to see who else they incorporate and how they incorporate them into the movie.

Seriously... I watched the first one and it was a total POS. Not sure what the hell this video even is, but it looks too "quality" to be anything but a viral trailer for the upcoming movie. And damn, it looks cool so far. Who doesn't love fucking Scorpion?

They could not put everyone in it and leave it open for a sequel with other characters.

Another question would be is if Goro will be depicted in this movie, since he's Shang Tsung's top fighter

Yeah, I noticed that in the preview or whatever that was. I wonder if it he's going to be 100% to the MK Universe. If not, I think he can pull off some kind of Goro like creature.

Nice Flop by Kobe

edit: Wrong thread.

By the way, they could make Goro like some kind of Abomination made by a mad scientist or something.

from the article

Says he wants to make a movie that balances the real world with the mysticism and the special powers. Compares it to the way Harry Potter exists in two worlds. As in there are two universes that coexist with each other.

It'll be interesting to see if Raiden OR Rayden is in this movie. I always liked Raiden. Lambert didn't do the character justice.

That's what I'd imagine. Some sort of mutant creature or something. I like the take he took with Reptile, that was pretty cool.

But how would you explain Sub Zero?

Would Raiden be an actual God? How would he pull that one off?

Great question. I have no idea. But I'd be interested to see how they handled the character. I'm guessing he wouldn't be a god. Maybe an illusionist/sorcorer/warlock? His control of electricity being similiar to that of Tesla.

I really don't know. But it be cool if they could figure out a way to get him in there.

they can always fine some way to make it work

he's a god but who is bound by the god laws so when he is done on the human plane he is vulnerable and has his god powers severally nerfed

blah,blah,blah

Crazy psychotic fucker who thinks he is a god and just happens to be able to shoot lighting out of him from all of the shock treatments he got..

No, the director decided to leave Lui Kang out because he said his story has already been told. Kind of like rebooting X-Men and not centering it around Wolverine.
