Today was an interesting day to say the least as the interwebs were ablaze with what looked like an extended trailer for a new Mortal Kombat movie. Before you roll your eyes and think about how awful MK: Annihilation was let me tell you that this is unlike anything you have ever seen – This video is so awesome it will make your balls clap!
Wild rumors and speculation are getting thrown around like a cheap hooker regarding the origins of this video. Is the studio trying to woo investors to pony up some cash for a reboot of the film franchise? There are too many known actors for it to be a fan film. Is the video part of a viral marketing for the up coming game? With E3 less than a week away that’s a likely option. Regardless of the reason for it’s existence the finished product is amazing and did it’s job – Getting everyone excited about Mortal Kombat again.
UPDATE – Jeri Ryan twittered about the Mortal Kombat footage and said
It’s not a game trailer. Actually was made for the director to sell WB on his vision for a reimagined MK film.
