    I really hope this is film rather than game trailer. Looks so good!

    That actually looks pretty decent, guess they've removed outworld entirely from the plot to ground it somewhat.

    Wow. OK. That looks AMAZING.

    Jeri Ryan as Sonya Blade? YES PLEASE.

    Also, this is what flashes on screen towards the end:


    Sub Zero looks a bit messed up huh.

    Hope this is a movie.

    Hope they have a decent director and a good budget. Otherwise we will get the crap we had with mk 1 and 2 films.

    Also i hope goro is in it and the old guy in mk1.

    Edit = Hmm just watched it, does look ok tho the fighting looked a bit pap and too fake lookin also i hate it when they change things i mean baraka or whatever hes called looked alot diff in mk 2. Oh and reptile looks crap i prefered the crap movies version which looked good for subzero and scorpian and reptile.

    Hmm wonder if they will do the games special fatalities hehe that would be cool.

    In the comments someone posts this link:

    So it looks like it is testing the water to see how people react and to see if it would be worth making a film like that.

    How old is the video? It's hugely popular already and going down a treat. A really good sign that this film will be made :D

    And I really hope Jeri Ryan is in it. She's perfect for Sonya.

    Dayum. Naughty concept trailer, I love it. Though I worry that such scenes wouldn't make it past the film censorship, I mean classification, board. Violent film with a video game tie-in... fingers crossed, anyway.

    The first Mortal Kombat was a decent watch.

    I can tell you that this is infact in production because I know one company have already been working on the vfx for it for a while now.

    Its a shame what they've done to baraka - doesn't look like baraka at all anymore....just some guy. Why do films based on games and comics try so hard sometimes to re-invent the characters which made the franchise popular in the first place? Never understood that one.

    Maybe in this case they are just trying to paddle desperately away from the rubbish attempts that have come before (MK 1 and MK:Annihilation) :p

    EDIT: Yea MK 1 wasn't SO bad but Annihilation was a bit of a disaster

    True, but still wasn't that brilliant. Did enjoy it though, so maybe was a little to harsh in my last post.

    They're not continuing the same time line...Need I say how Johnny Cage gets killed in Annihilation? Or the fact that half of the characters in that video should already be dead? :p

    Agree. :(
