Fight! The word that echoed through many a arcade throughout the life span of Mortal Kombat games. This game has a rabid fanbase and deservedly so. Now, we finally have a look at the James Wan produced Mortal Kombat film and holy shit are we impressed.
This film seems to be doing everything that we were hoping it would do and more. It’s giving us white knuckle martial arts, plenty of gore and most importantly it is giving us a story that is following the games and not straying.
Director, Simon McQuoid did hint that this is just the beginning and that this film could be the beginning of a bigger picture and an actual Mortal Kombat expanded universe.
Most importantly, the trailer is revealing that there will be a lot of fatalities and fatalities that are done right and mirrored from the games.
This film will focus on a new character, that will act as an audience gateway into the Mortal Kombat universe. It will also clearly focus on the rivalry between Scropion and Sub-Zero and the backstory between those two.
McQuoid seems to be in good standing here. He is sticking close with the source material and that looks to be the route to travel to Outworld.
What do you guys think about the trailer? Let us know in the comments section.
