Mortal Kombat Reboot?


Yes, you read the title correctly. Evidently there’s a reboot of the Mortal Kombat movies based on the video game from the ’80s and ’90s. The new movie may be called Mortal Kombat Rebirth. This doesn’t look like the fun, arcade game-inspired movies that I actually enjoyed way back when… This looks like the movie studio (Warner Brothers)  means business.

What do you think? There’s a bit more information in the G4 post where I saw this news and the teaser/trailer.

With big names like Michael Jai White and Jeri Ryan… maybe this might be good?

I actually think that, though this is uber-violent, it might actually provide an interesting setting. A more realistic world where freaks, monsters, and killers compete. Yeah, I get that it’s kind of childish to want to see these folks fight. But it might be fun… Who knows?

  1. Quick update on this… It appears from Geekosystem that Jeri Ryan has provided some clarification…“It’s not a game trailer. Actually was made for the director to sell WB on his vision for a reimagined MK film.”
