Wow, the CG'd Goro looks shiiiiiiiiit. That can't be the final version they're going with can it? It's Scorpion King level.

Why not just watch a good film with tons of gore though?  Such as Peter Jackson's Braindead.  That way you get amazing practical gore effects by the bucket load and a tight, entertaining script with engaging characters and dialogue.  Really can't see what's to be gained by watching a shitty adaptation of a fighting game with crap CG blood that's been added in post-production.

I've already seen Brain Dead!

I don't think anyone thinks this is gonna be as good as that but for me as a fan of daft shite and particularly of Mortal Kombat this is a bit of a must-see

No joke, the crap 1995 effort looks better.

When's Hollywood going to make a Ninja Hamster film, eh!?



Also, no Christopher Lambert being Christopher Lambert, and no Musetta Vander chewing the scenery. This film can get to fuck.

Love the first film, wouldn't change a thing about it. This looks a lot more serious and bound to suffer comparison on that basis, much as I try to resist it.

Probably not. These trailers often use pre-finalised renders, before fancy lighting and effects have been added. See also: the first Jurassic World trailer (or possibly teaser, I forget) which had terrible, fake-looking CGI gates.

Anyway, the film looks annoyingly po-faced, but I liked it when Sub-Zero turned that blood spurt into an ice-pick dagger. If the violence is creative and fun, it might be semi-watchable, although as mentioned above, it'll probably be best to just wait till all the fights are on YouTube and watch them individually without any of that plot nonsense getting in the way.

Looks like a film that's too po-faced to be entertaining, but you'll love watching the fights on youtube.

Yeah I'll just watch the fights in 4 years time, with Evanescence - Bring Me To Life slapped over the top.

Agreed. The sequel is kinda fun too.

Anyone remember the TV series? Where they knew they were getting cancelled, so the bad guys won and enslaved humanity? That was a heck of an ending.

I also watched most of the web series, "Legacy". It looked good, and the fights were decent, but it had a bad case of blue balls in that it kept not being about the actual tournament but was all buildup (it may have got to the point a bit after I stopped watching, but I'd stopped caring by then).

Wasn't Legacy designed as a primer for a film that was never made? Or is THIS that film?

Wasn't there another short before the web series that was made as a showreel for what the guy could do for a film which led to the web series?

The cartoon version, for children, was pointless and pleased exactly zero people.

The animated WB film from last year, Scorpion's Revenge, was pretty decent and authentically gory too.

Not being funny but without the "TEST YOUR MIGHT" song then there's no point in this existing.

Just fucking listen to that. How can you not want to rip off someone's head with your bare hands after listening to that?

Ahhh someone has already fixed the trailer:

Now that's a film I'd see. Will miss it in the cinema and wait until someone has edited the film to play the GOAT song during every fight scene.

That applies just as much to the music of Ed Sheeran, Coldplay, etc.

edit oh whoops. looks way better with the full TEST YOUR MIGHT

they also are clearly appealing to nostalgia with the voiceover of the character names from that

Yes, I'm sure the final version will look amazing.

A couple of nice additions to your tea coaster collection.

Without the theme, it's just a bloke kicking a snowman.

With the theme, an epic battle for the ages.
