Two days ago, a top secret project of a Mortal Kombat reboot movie was revealed with an 8 minute teaser video. The teaser hints alteration to the lore of the video games by taking a slightly more realistic approach to the series. You can view the trailer here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9_MqZn7E-mk What are your thoughts on the teaser and the new film? I'm incredibly excited about it. I love the games and I think that 8 minutes alone is better than the first two films.

haha that was terrible. Almost as bad as the second MK movie.

You really thought it was terrible? What didn't you like about it? I thought it was awesome and the overall general response I've read from fans on other sites are in love with it as well. I'm just curious what about this clip turns you off on it? =O Interested in your opinion and all. haha

It's incredibly cheesy and tries too hard to be realistic. So we have blind super assassin, a cannibal killer with harlequin ichthyosis (lol'd hard), crazy surgeon with attached blades to his arms and undercover movie star. It's so ridicoulous that suddenly demigods and immortal ninjas make more sense. So why not just stick with the original concept? Why replace magic with science? Can't wait to see Raiden tho. Scientist struck by lightning during an experiment. Oh wait, that's Flash. The Johnny Cage vs Baraka fight was incredibly boring and Lateef Crowder didn't show any of his usually impressive moves. Also I hate that blue/green filter. And do we really need another MK movie? It's not like the franchise has much movie potential to begin with...There's big chance that this movie won't be made anyway but I still kinda hope it will. Looks like fun, even the trailer makes me laugh.

I really don't like the earlier Mortal Kombat movies. But I think I'm going to love this one. I like the concept. But it's kinda weird that the protagonist is scorpion. I think he's usually one of the villains. Hoping this will come out soon.

Well from what it seems, this was the demo pitch (which I'm surprised to hear since it seems it had a hefty budget). But based on the quality of the pitch and the fan response, I'm pretty sure this is going to be a go.

I think it will be a great movie. I like how they remade all the characters and that they all have a little history. Hope to see more and hear more about this movie.

I doubt they can do worst than the first two films. lol. I admit that I watched the first one many times, but that was because I was obsessed with the game. I didn't know they were doing another one. Looks like it could be good. Can't wait to see more. Thanx for the clip.
