Mortal Kombat Movie Short Get A More Grown Up Look
I never had much for the Mortal Kombat video games, or movies for that matter. The characters seemed a bit silly and dumb, and the games nor movies ever really explained how or why they developed into "silly and dumb".
But this short pitch trailer had more plot and intrigue then all of the video games and movies ever made with the Mortal Kombat name combined. The short film was created to pitch to Warner Bros who are looking to reboot the franchise. Actors Jeri Ryan as Sonya Blade and Michael Jai White as Jax gives the film a little more weight, and the R-rated feel of it certainly makes it more grown up.
If this is the direction that WB is looking to take the Mortal Kombat franchise, I'm all for it because this short film is just what is needed to breath life into it.
Thanks to Fred for this.....
