By now, you’ve seen the Mortal Kombat Rebirth movie. If not, watch it. We’ll wait.


Jeri Ryan, the actress who played Sonya Blade in the movie and Seven of Nine in Star Trek: Voyager, explained what the movie is for. “It’s not a game trailer,” Ryan tweeted. “Actually was made for the director to sell WB on his vision for a reimagined MK film.”


“I did it as a favor to a friend,” Ryan continues,”No idea yet what WB’s reaction to it was. And I’m not sure how you can contact WB to push them to make it.”


With all of the Internet buzz, Warner Brothers is, without question, aware of it.

  • The original film was pretty cool, and while not my favorite (that’s reserved for Street Fighter: The MOVIE) it felt the most faithful to any game-to-film adaptation I’ve seen.

    Not sure what to expect from this one, but I wouldn’t be surprised to see come our way eventually.

    • Yea, the original MK was awesome. Too bad Annihilation had to turn out the way it did. But this…this looks really promising.

      • “Those were 500 dollar sunglasses, as*hole!”

          This is when you fall down.

          • I really hope I see hide nor hair of Johnny Cage…

          • Well they showed him die in the trailer soo…

          • Akimitsu

            Yep, he was killed in the trailer and then I believe his head was torn off afterwards.

            It’s just a concept trailer. If WB puts this into protection, he may very well not have been killed off at that point (and if it even shares the same story at that point), though it would be nice to see actual named characters killed off in a violent way.

    Well can’t be any worse than the other fighting games getting the movie treatment, that are pending. Wouldn’t mind seeing Jeri in that Sonya Blade costume.
