Today in Video Game Movies: Mortal Kombat… costarring Spawn? (Update: Jeri Ryan Explains)

Recommended Videos

Video game adaptations have forever been a source of nerdrage from fanboys, but heaven knows they make money no matter how ill-advised. The Mortal Kombat series is no exception. I mean James Remar? Really?

But every once and a while you get something that at least looks promising. Without giving too much away, what you’ll see below is a 8-minute tease/trailer for… something within the MK universe. And it looks pretty badass. While it’s not clear if this is a bona fide reboot of the series or a game-tie or a standalone work unto itself, it’s clear that those involved didn’t hold back.

Update: Jeri Ryan, who plays Sonya Blade in the video, explains via Twitter: “It’s not a game trailer. Actually was made for the director to sell WB on his vision for a reimagined MK film.”

Now we all know trailers can be misleading, so of course some skepticism is warranted. But the new interpretations of some of the characters are pretty cool (read: Reptile). And yes, I know Michael Jai White has been in other things than Spawn, but you see that movie once and it’s just stuck there.
