This looks stupid as hell. I'd totally watch it.
are you guys completely retarded? this looks like the dumbest, most half-assed lazy piece of shit movie since STREET FIGHTER: THE LEGEND OF CHUN LEE
It does have a stunning cliche-per-minute count, though. Watch out, George Lucas, your record is under threat.
I agree with revdrew. I never even liked Mortal Kombat and I still thought this was entretaining as hell. My kind of stupid.
Also: DY-NO-MITE! DY-NO-MITE!
Oh, don't get me wrong, this is a piece of shit. But it's arguably the most unintentionally entertaining piece of shit the Mortal Kombat franchise has produced in over a decade.
I could probably write a novel's worth of snarky comments just based on this trailer.
I have got to see the whole thing. It'll be like a cheat code for infinite ammo.
This looks like shit.
I think you meant to say "Awesome! This looks like shit!"
|Caminante Nocturno |
Ha, ha, ha.
No, seriously, where's the real trailer?
If you have any hope that this movie/game is going to be good, I suggest you stop at that flash frame at 7:12 and weep at your utter delusion.
The Internet is loving this, of course.
Dude I'm sorry this looks hilarious.
you have GOT TO BE FUCKING KIDDING ME.
Have kids these days even heard of Mortal Kombat?
Where is Liu Kang? No seriously, where the fuck is Liu Kang!?!
Also: The TV show was more enjoyable than this.
Because Johnny Cage is TOO VANILLA for Frank Miller presents Rob Liefeld's Grim n' Gritty Mortal Kombat! Only deformed weirdos and exposition-vomiting cops may apply!
Also: Somewhere in the American south there's a person who's never heard of Baraka and thinks they used that name to imply that the president is a serial killer. They will go see this based solely on that assumption.
Johnny Cage always gets killed, he got killed in MK2 and kept being dead the rest of the series.
Captain Exposition needs to buy a lamp.
Apparently serial killers have 'code names'
I could not stop laughing the entire time.
The "gritty" remake of characters reminds me of the velociraptor Yoshi and jumping obese black-lady Goombas. Could this be the "Super Mario Brothers Movie" of our generation?
Me too. Fluffy, I think we are older than God to a lot of others here; god being in his/her 30s.
I saw the Mario Bros movie in theaters when it originally came out, I remember being confused as fuck as to the lack power-ups and why now in retrospect Toad was Mojo Nixon.
What, no Baraka Obama jokes sixteen comments in?
I can't forgive Johnny Cage dying. Lameness. NewHeavenSalesman is right.
So Raiden is going to be a homeless schizophrenic with a defibrillator, right?
(this reminds me of Twisted Metal Black, in all the wrong ways.)
The sad thing is you probably just predicted more or less what they will do with those characters.
If I may add, princess Kitana is gonna be an underground pornstar who does snuff films...except she's doing the killing! and its REAL!!!
Actually my beef isn't that is such a brilliant concept,its more the fact that what is in the game is infinitely more interesting then the trying too hard to be grim and gritty shit we just watched.
you mean to tell me ninja hell demon scorpion from the game who rips his fucking face off and breaths fire isn't as interesting as the HUMAN asshole they just passed off as scorpion?
At the end of the day I'm not a huge fan of the series, but I can appreciate some of the more fantastic and at times badass characters the game had (well up till MK2, everything else after that is far to retarded for even me to enjoy).
To see them defeat the point of a ludicrous over the top violent fighting game by making it more "realistic" is just all kinds of dumb. Its like trying to make a realistic MegaMan movie.
More like the kind of gonzo retardation that started with Van Damme from Bloodsport fighting Lightning from Big Trouble In Little China AND WENT ON FROM THERE was the only redeeming feature the MK franchise (in any form) ever had.
is that...... 7 of 9???
Totally got hit with nerd disappointment when I learned that it wasn't Kano in the interrogation room this whole time.
What's wrong, script-writers? Does having Jacks and Sonya trying to cut a deal with Kano make to much sense?
Oh, and 5 stars for that cheese-dick Johnny Cage dying. Too bad a mullet headed Liu Kang didn't go to hell with him.
|Urkel Forever |
Word is that this isn't actually a trailer, but more like a sample for luring investors to fund making it into a full films.
This looks hilarious. My head is spinning with the possibility of a gritty, serious Dark Knight-esque take on ninjas and mutants fighting each other with fireballs in an interdimensional fighting tournament.
"Hello, murderer. We want to put you onto the streets. If this tournament exists, Shang Tsung will find you.
... if it doesn't exist then uhh... well we just released a psychotic killer. Oops."
If you had been PAYING ATTENTION he could have left at any time. He gave himself up willingly for some reason and decided to hang around in jail also for some unknown reason.
Maybe he enjoys the company.
THIS MOVIE WOULD SUCK BECAUSE IT DONT HAVE DEMONS AND LIGHTNING GODS IN IT AND THEY DID JAX'S MOUSTACHE WRONG
*draws a unicorn on his trapper keeper*

Who can hate on this? Every live action MK made has been corn ball entertainment. People are getting worked up about this like there's a standard it's falling below.
Being better than terrible doesn't make you good.
A remake of a film about a video game from the pretense of realism.
It's like video a two headed snake eating itself from both ends at the same time simultaneously, in a universe where snakes don't even exist.
I can't even...gah FUHHEHLFDSGWREO@#$GEHRDF
Fucking hell this looks shit.
This looks TERRIBLE.
Opening day ticket it is.
Some franchises can benefit from having a darker approach.
Mortal Kombat is NOT one of them.
|The Mothership |
I want to see at least one Bonestorm reference.
Hey bros, check it out!
YouTubers aren't the only ones fawning over this!
I would watch every second of this.
What? No DUNT DUNT DUNT DUNDUNDUN DUNT DUNT MORTAL KOMBAT!
So sad. Still, five stars for squeezing the Mortal Kombat mythology into a crap sausage.
Maybe Johnny's cover wouldn't have been blown if he hadn't been hanging around posters with his name and face on them.
I'm not gonna read this many comments, so sorry if it's a repeat, but this is not likely a movie but a new game. If it was a movie, there would be some sort of hint about it's production before this.
Is that Michael Jai White? I just expected him to start calling people sucka and accusing them of kung fu treachery. If that's Michael Jai White, the chances that I'll watch this just jumped to 110%. Yes, Spawn was horribly bad, but Black Dynamite has made me forgive all that dude's sins, past and future and in alternate time lines where he raped my mom.
|Rape Van Winkle |
My response as I watched:
Oh, for fuck sake.
Oh, for fuck sake.
Oh, for fuck sake.
Oh, for fuck sake.
Wait, Scorpion is the hero, instead of Liu Kang?
This looks rad.
|Rape Van Winkle |
Also Jeri Ryan.
I fucking hate video game movies and haven't played a fighter since the 90's but I'll be watching the shit out of this once it hits Netflix.
|Aubrey McFate |
there have been so many FATALITIES from him
his VICTORIES are FLAWLESS
he is TESTING OUR MIGHT
we cannot have a FRIENDSHIP
something something ANIMALITY
|Spit Spingola |
Johnny Cage should have done a split and punched him in the balls.
|Goethe and ernie |
Awesome, my dad is stoked for this.
|Koda Maja |
Mortal Kombat the movie: this time with 'blood cheat' on.
you people are all nerds
Everyone on the site is some form of nerd.
I counted six errors in established canon in the first minute alone (NOT including the spelling of his name on the door, which, while looking like an error to the casual fan, is actually correct). That's not "nerdy", that's just attention to detail.
hopefully the victor of the final fight in this movie just footsweeps his opponent until he says FUCK THIS and ragequits.
I hope this turns out to be a teaser for MORTAL KOMBAT vs. BLACK DYNAMITE, because goddamn that'd be awesome.
|Macho Nacho |
I'll probably watch this when it pops up on YouTube.
I don't personally see the need for a reboot; I thought the original was fine (though I wish it could have been a lot bloodier ...)
Wait... is this REAL?
A student film probably wouldn't have Jeri Ryan, Michael Jai White , and such high production values, but... no. No, this is an elaborate joke, right?
For when undead ninjas, snake people ninjas, and weird mutant dudes from the outer planes aren't EXTREME enough for you, there's always Hollywood.
YOU'RE the only one with the blubber
that's a lot of fucking opinions
|Plan B |
Baraka? Isn't that kind of like making a teaser for a Street Fighter movie and spending 5 minutes on the backstory and motivation for Dee Jay?
