    Mortal Kombat reboot

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9_MqZ...layer_embedded

    Via Kotaku...
    Michael Jai White as Jax? Jeri Ryan as Sonya Blade? Baraka and Reptile as homicidal maniacs? This footage from what looks to be the next Mortal Kombat game or movie trailer is brutal, disgusting, and perfect.

    Reader Kev directed us to this video, featuring a realistic new take on the Mortal Kombat franchise that has more in common with movies like suspense and horror films like Seven and Saw than anything resembling the campy video game to film adaptations we've seen in the past.

    Last we heard, Warner Bros. was looking to reboot the film franchise. If this is the fruit of that effort, we approve wholeheartedly.

    More likely this could be a live-action trailer for the next game. Either way, we approve.

    Mortal Kombat creator Ed Boon has indicated that the next game in the series would be shooting for an M rating. "People want an M-rated MK....dammit we will give them an M-rated MK." This would surely do the trick.

    This is way too much star power for a fan project. We're digging around for more information. Considering the timing of this trailer, however, we expect we might hear more as E3 quickly approaches.
    MJW is goddamn perfect casting for Jax.

    I just wanted to see Cage nut punch Baraka before losing his head. But, even sans-nut punch, I approve.

    Looks like they're finally making a good movie, but wtf at them always killing off Jonny Cage. Funny how he made sure to hit the blunt lol.

    The first MK wasn't a terrible movie but as a MK movie it failed horribly since there was little gore, which is what people were expecting from Mortal Kombat. They better not cast Jet Li as Liu Kang though.

    And wtf at them always killing Cage, he's like the Kenny of Mortal Kombat

    I really liked the first MK, the second one was pretty bad, but I watched it just because it was an MK movie.

    Scorpion is my favorite character, but it's not too surprising theyre looking at Scorpion to be the 'main' charatcer here as he's Boon's favorite. Just surprising it has taken this long to make him a real focal point.

    Shit is cash! Only grip is the death of Johnny

    Kick ass but weird at the same time to see Scorpion seemingly as the protagonist.

    Okay, I'm not even going to front. I saw this thread and immediately thought lolMKmovie. Saw the video, fucking want this now!

    EDIT: Scorpion was always a borderline protagonist/antagonist. He made it a point from MKII on to protect Sub-Zero due to his guilt over falsely killing his brother when the younger one was his original target. In my opinion, it makes sense to make a movie through his perspective as he's one of the deepest characters in the series.

    Scorpion was always neutral in the comics, did what he could for whoever to get his hands on Sub-Zero. Ancient clan rivalries yo.

    Did they really need to devote any time to talking about/defining harlequin babies? They're just being gross to be gross. As far as trying to go for a gritty & "realistic" feel, it failed. Do not want.
