Apparently, for a while, Warner wanted to do a reboot of the Mortal Kombat film franchise. No one knows what this video is for, whether it’s for a new movie or for an upcoming Mortal Kombat video game, or even just a one-of viral short film (think of that Street Fighter: Legacy film we posted a few weeks back, but given the stars in this video, it being just a viral movie is not looking like that’s the case). One thing is for sure, though, this video takes a lot of creative freedom to the franchise’s story and characters, and represents more of a horror film than an action movie.
If this is the real deal, though, could it be that Mortal Kombat movie we’ve been waiting for?
Keep in mind, this video is pretty graphic.
Alright, so now we know what it’s for. According to the actress who plays Sonya, it’s not for a game or movie, but who knows what would come of it:
It’s not a game trailer. Actually was made for the director to sell WB on his vision for a reimagined MK film.
So now it’s up to WB to decide if they want to pursue that route or not. Sounds like Legion was partly right. Given the overall approval of the movie, though, WB may just wind up going this route.
