Video games and movies don’t always mix well. Too often things come across as cheap or corny, or the budget costumes and special effects haunt us for years. But the new Mortal Kombat movie just dropped a trailer and it looks like a good number of the people involved are fans of the game and wanted to do a proper job of it.
Get ready to meet the gang and get introduced to the deadliest tournament out there. We have things being frozen, enemies being tossed and pulled around, pummelled and eventually killed in grisly fashion. Kano has a heart in his hands by the end, still beating and well gosh, I am keen to see this movie now.
There is a new contender on the scene, an MMA fighter named Cole Young. Having someone new is a great way to make the story their own for the movie, but at this point I just want to see more of the Sub-Zero and Scorpion fight, because dang, it looks great. The movie is set to release on April 16.
