And your hero for the new Mortal Kombat movie is...

Okay, I lied.  A little bit anyway.

The lead karacter in the next MORTAL KOMBAT movie is yet unnamed at this time.  But what has been revealed is that the reboot "will follow a lowly unlucky supermarket employee who discovers that he has out of this world powers and must decide between good and evil, even though the evil side has helped him discover his true potential and who he really is."

That's at once so vague and yet so specific I'm honestly not sure what sort of komment to make, so I think I kan just leave it be for now.  Though no start date has yet been set, the movie is still scheduled to be directed by Kevin Tancharoen (the short movie MORTAL KOMBAT: REBIRTH) from a script by Oren Uziel (also MORTAL KOMBAT: REBIRTH).

For those who are unfamiliar, the MORTAL KOMBAT video game franchise tells the story of a fighting tournament filled with the best fighters from several different realms, the outcome of which then decides the fate of those realms.

Here are some pictures from MORTAL KOMBAT: REBIRTH featuring Jax, Reptile, and Baraka:

Extra Tidbit: MORTAL KOMBAT 3 on Sega Genesis. *Sigh* Such good memories...

This smells like Dragonball all over again. Shame. I liked Rebirth.

Can't take this synopsis seriously. Just give us season 2 of Legacy already.

Would you like paper or plastic?

What the hell is this? It has to be a Michael Bay production. Next in line for Bay is Jurassic Park starring a shit load of polar bears in a frozen tundra.

Liu Kang, clean-up on aisle 3. Oh by the way, brother dead return home.

yea this plot sounds weak! Why mess with the plot of the first one, which in my opinion was the best movie. The best fighters from all around the world are summoned to a mysterious island for the ultimate fighting competition! Problem solved!

Soooooo....

They're making a movie based on Kurt Warner, but they're giving him powers and a decision between good and evil. I guess going to 3 and winning 1 Super Bowl was just too much of a feel good story.

Oh so it is happening...

Fuck thought I was dreaming that comment last night *sigh* what a fuckin shitty plot. Why can't you just follow off where the web show left off ? at least that was pretty cool. But I still love the old one, no matter what people say about it, it's pure fun. :)

I don't like the sound of this. The rebirth trailer directed by this guy was actually awesome, but the web series wasn't very good. He had more money than he had for the trailer, yet the production values for the trailer seemed 10X better.

bleh

That synopsis is horrid and all 3 of those pics are terrible. The third one looks like Leatherface just finished playing MKII and decided that Barraka was his new hero.

Can't wait for the scene where he accidentally unleashes his wacky new powers on an unsuspecting produce section. It'll be like Wolverine, but with fruit.

I'd rather just play the games. Particularly MK9-the gore in that one is just ridiculously awesome.

Fuck yeah, Fortress. I still have my VHS. I saw the DVD in the store for $2.99 the other day and some dude picked up the last copy right in front of me. I was not happy.

I mean, honestly, what are the odds that two people in all of New York would want Fortress AT THE EXACT SAME TIME?!

"A supermarket employee discovers he has powers...". Wait, what?
Is Michael Bay involved in this? It sure as hell sounds like it!
