    New Mortal Kombat Movie! (Fake?)

    I didn't even know they were making one:



    Edit:

    Seems like it isn't real, as Ed Boon denies it.

    Dunno how I feel about it.
    I mean, we got a cool 2-season web-series too, but then it faded into obscurity.
    Given how vidya game movies tend to be...not so great... I don't know if to be excited or worried.
    The last 2 game movies that I liked were the first MK movie and the first Silent Hill.

    You know, I really want the movie to be good, and awesome, if there is one. Like everybody else.

    I'd want to know more details though, before passing judgment.

    Re: New Mortal Kombat Movie!

    considering how garbage a lot of modern movies are, just disappointment after disappointment, i'm not going get hyped up for this
    in all this time there was only one good mortal kombat movie, it wasn't a webseries nor a cartoon, and didn't have "annihilation" in it

    Because of the time travel may have MKX characters in it such as Cassie Cage, D'Vorah, and King Jin, and etc.

    I definitely want Eliza Dushku or Nicole Scherzinger as Jade.

    Bai Ling or Kelly Hu as D'Vorah.

    Michelle Rodriguez as Tanya.

    Video game movies are usually shit compared to the actual games...like the Resident Evil movies, don't even get me started on those. =/...

    Silent Hill was Ok, but of course the game was 100x better.

    Which is why I don't know how I truly feel about another MK movie.
    Part of me is like "Cool," and part of me is like "It will probably be a terrible, direct-to-DVD / BluRay movie."

    Anyone have hopes for the new Assassin's Creed movie coming out? Because I sure don't.

    Re: New Mortal Kombat Movie!

    there are so many videogames i would like to see made into movies but they would end up sucking. one example is Doom. when i was a kid i always thought it would be so cool if they made a Doom movie. and what did we get when it did happen? a shitty half assed movie. probably half of the people involved in making the movie didnt even know anything about Doom.

    GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Re: New Mortal Kombat Movie!

    I'm one of those people who recognize the cheesiness and how bad these movies are, and I still enjoy watching them time and time again. DOA: Dead or Alive movie is one of my favourites, and yes, it is utterly bad! But I unironically enjoy watching it! XD

    As long the fight scenes are cool, the costumes well-made and the story is somewhat good, then I'm in.

    I liked the first season of the MK web-series, because it had all these small short stories about a few characters and their pasts. It was a really cool idea. But the second season was just bad and didn't match up with the first season very well... not to mention that Ermac...

    So no, I don't expect this new movie to be a huge success or to be a masterpiece. But as long they can make it enjoyable, then I'm all for it.

    Re: New Mortal Kombat Movie!

    Lowkey, I think the best director to make this movie would definitely be Zach Snyder. Seriously, a Mortal Kombat Movie would need everything he provides in most of his recent movies.
    -Extremely Dark Story (though Johnny would still need some humor)
    -Non-Linear Story (It's a Tournament so the story won't have to be linear)
    -Major Character Deaths with Zero craps given
    -Iconic Visuals (Imagine Zach Snyder's Shot of Scorpion killing Subzero or Lui Kang's Shot of defeating Goro and Shang Tsung)
    -Amazing Fight Scenes (Did you Not see that fight scenes in MoS and BvS? Especially Batman's Warehouse fight)
    -Unique Twist to some Characters (and it's impossible to ruin any of the characters unless he pulls an Ermac or MK Annihilation)
    -Extremely Long. This Movie NEEDS 2.5 hours.


    Now I'm still ok with James Wan though, since he's hard at work on the next Aquaman movie.

    I really doubt time travel will be a part of it and believe that it'll be a straight up reboot of the franchise, if not some kind of continuation of the MK Legacy series (which already feels choppy to me with the constant recasting and very short storylines).

    I hope it starts from scratch and that it's a good one!

    I actually saw THIS over at MKO's homepage too from James Wan in a very recent interview.

    "The key here is to try and do it right. I don't want to rush into it. So right now, we're just trying to take our time to make sure it's heading in the right direction. I think that's more important than trying to rush through it and pump up something that no one likes."

    "I love the characters. I think they're such colorful characters. It's such an amazing take on, basically, Enter the Dragon. It's that fantasy version, the video game version, of Enter the Dragon. And in doing so, they ended up creating such interesting characters and I think that is such a cool world to explore. This really mythical, bigger world that lives on another dimension on top of ours. I think that's really fun to play with and so we'll see."
