Mortal Kombat Rebirth? *Update!* Jeri Ryan Explains
Ok….this just popped up online. Warner Bros. bought the rights to another Mortal Kombat movie, and they’ve expressed interest in rebooting the franchise. The first Kombat flick is one of the better videogame movies out there, it’s cheesy, but it still is. The next MK game is supposed to be taking it back to their violent roots. The point of all this? Well, this 8 ish minute video shows up with no explanation. Some of the big boy blogs thinks it’s a cutscene to the next game. I say production value is too high and slick to be that…..and if this is the upcoming movie, then I’m ready to buy a ticket. This thing looks sick!
Coming from Kotaku, Jeri Ryan expained what this was from some tweets. I wish this gets MADE. Here’s the ol copy/paste.
“Okay, so… Mortal Kombat,” she tweets. “It’s not a game trailer. Actually was made for the director to sell WB on his vision for a reimagined MK film.”
Ryan said she did her role as a favor to a friend. “No idea yet what WB’s reaction to it was,” she adds. I can tell you what my reaction was: stoked.”
