"Tell that to Zod's snapped neck!"



As of right now this movie still has a release date scheduled for January 2021, aka literally 2 months from now, and not only have we not seen a single still I donít think thereís even an official logo yet. WB has been really keeping their cards close to their chest re: their theatrical schedule considering WW1984 is still scheduled for a full theatrical at Christmas and lord knows that isnít happening. I bet we see something by the end of this month, most likely a date for HBO Max in the spring, but who knows. Godzilla/Kong is getting the same silent treatment, but that has at least had some leaks, theyíve kept this whole ship under wraps. Then again maybe 12 hours from now when MK11 Ultimate launches theyíll have a little bonus reveal for us.

Also I canít believe itís been a decade since MK:Rebirth! I was so hyped up when that dropped and no one knew what the gently caress it was, I downloaded it in 1080p so I could watch it on my TV over and over. MK was basically dead given that Midway was gone, MKDC was weird and disappointing, and no one really knew what was coming next given how stagnant the franchise had become. I think fans knew something was up and this came out at the exact right time to capitalize on that, even with the dramatic change in tone. WB had to come out and say this wasnít one of theirs and it had nothing to do with what they were working on, but within a month they had announced MK9 and flash forward 10 years and here we are; MK is arguably just as big now as it was at its 90s peak. MK11 has sold over 8 million copies and is about to launch on next-gen consoles (and is not making people pay for the upgrade, presumably because people who have dropped over $100 buying the game and DLC at launch wouldnít be happy if they had to), an animated movie came out earlier this year and another live-action movie is on the way. Feels like 1995 all over again.

The interesting thing about this short is how different it is from pretty much all of MK. The series has never shied away from the mystical and I think the realism felt fresh, but could a full fighting game really have sustained this tone? Or even just a movie? Looking back I think the return to the roots that was MK9 was the right direction did the series to go, it was certainly the wheelhouse for the team working on it and it didnít mean they couldnít do new and interesting things. And honestly based on the little weíve heard about this new movie, I think itís going to end up splitting the difference. I donít think weíre gonna see Plastic Surgeon Baraja or Gross Harlequin Reptile but itís also not going to be as close an adaptation as the original MK movie was, which was incredibly faithful except for the lack of blood Ďn guts.

Exploration is ill-advised




That really looks like from the era, maybe pre-MCU, when adaptations of video games in particular were still super embarrassed of the source material and tried to just turn them into bog standard action movies with vague, bedgrudging resemblance to the games.

Looks way better than Annihilation, and that most recent terrible Street Fighter movie. But it seems to be missing a bit of the campy fun of the first movie. Probably just a lack of Linden Ashby making dumb one liners.

I thought Tan was gonna be playing Cage too when they didnít announce his role but Iíve read a pretty compelling theory that Cole Young is actually Kuai Liang, the second, good guy Sub-Zero and brother of Bi Han, who is the Sub Zero in this movie who is bad and eventually becomes Noob Saibot.

It does look like Sub Zero's going to be a primary antagonist, so I wouldn't be surprised if there was some kind of second act reveal.

I keep thinking characters in MK Annihilation had dragon tattoos that let them travel between realms, and when they died, the tattoos came alive and crawled out of them. Or am I mixing this up with an entirely different movie?

No, the dragon tattoo thing is from the second movie. I don't remember it being why they could travel between realms, but I definitely remember a scene where a dragon tattoo kind of flies off of someone who was defeated, rolls into a little ball and disappears.

EDIT: It also leads to of my favorite stupid line deliveries from the movie that nobody seems to remember. but when we watched it made me laugh for like a full minute "Wait a minute! I've seen that tattoo before! On a robot AND a woman. They both tried to kill me".

Well when you add in Chun-Li you gotta add in Chris Klein too, and he doesnít come cheap.

Edit: honestly just more room in the second movie for all our other favorite Mortal Kombatants. Johnny Cage, Chun-Li, Terry Bogard, Morrigan, Voldo, that self-aware panda bear and Marth!
