Mortal Kombat was the best movie based on game.

This turd has got to be the worst adaptation ever:

reptile is a gorss internet baby
baraka is just a human surgeon
No outer world?
No Shao Khan?
Shan Tsung doesn't turn into ppl?
Scorpion doesn't have a snake/spear that flies out of his hand and isn't undead?
No freezing powers/special moves etc.?

Instead of Kung Fu fights with super abilities there's going to be some
gay brazilian jiu jitsu Chuck Liddel UFC style hugging ....

Someone please shoot the director that made this turd,
it is a slap in the face of true MK fans and I'm apoplectic over this.

It's a grimdark re-imaging of the franchise. Yes, it looks retarded and don't even know why they bothered (may as well just make your own movie with ninjas and mutants).
MK is supposed to be campy, over the top, gory, and mystic/mysterious. It's Western culture looking at Eastern cultural stereotypes. You hear Mortal Kombat and you immediately get an idea of what it is. This movie isn't it. Could be good, but I doubt it. The first one was actually rather awesome for a video game movie. It seems that they aim to make a compromise between the actual MK universe and serious business; that just won't work at all.

The problem with the past mk (not only mk but alot of the other game-to-movie films i.e Streetfighter the Movie) are cheesy. There's something about flourescent costumes, and cheesy/cliche lines that don't go hand in hand with films for it to be successful. Realism gives it that edge, a more serious look. Its probably why all the past mk's have been so bad (once again maybe not to you, but in terms of overall opinion of most people). I mean mk movies in the past haven't necessarily been that big but lets take Streetfighter the Movie - the one with Van damme and kylie minogue. You show Streetfighter to anyone in the streets, they'd laugh in your face.

And to answer your other question, about why other movies have done Reborn, Begins, Returns movies like Superman. It's because the previous movies are outdated and most cases are a disappointment to entertainment. I mean take Batman - back in the days they used to have Villans that were dressed in Colourful costumes... I mean what the hell happened to Mr Freeze.... he just looked cheesy forget about how he sounded. The "Returns" idea for Batman worked a real treat - with Batman Begins and the Dark Knight? Talk about a come back.

Ultimately what looks more kick a$$ from the pics below



to the left is a camp extra from West Side Story and to the right you see a mass murderer
Your right but jack nicholson was still a VERY good joker. Don't judge just by that picture...

This looks O.K. to me. Not bad at all.
Trying to make it to be as realistic as possible, it seems.

MK franchise was huge in the 90's and it didn't feature any surgeon that sharpened his teeth with a saw blade, Baraka was a freaking mutant from Outer World, and people plaid MK games not some games about crazy prisoners escaping and surgeons sharpening their teeth.

You kinda nNeed to stop living in the past. I remember playing Mortal Kombat on the snes and how big it was back then, but fact is its not as big anymore. Besides the point, main thing is doing that kind of thing is very difficult to do in a proper way. Depicting an Outer World with people that have outlandish special abilities (fine line between cool and outlandish) is extremely hard to portray in a serious way in a film of today without making it look cheesy or cliche. So what? they changed a few things so its a more dark, edgy, more realistic film. You want it to be cheesy like YouTube- Tommy vs Jason
I mean unless this film is for people under the age of 16, then sure you can have people flying around into Outer World portals, with silly masks that resemble that of what my 9 year old nephew would wear on Halloween. But its not going to make it a great film.

Thing is you mentioned they have to stick exactly to how it is ingame. Once again i'll give you a great example of a film that slightly changed details so that it made the film darker... We go back to our old friend the Dark Knight (as an example). In the very first Batman made in 1989, joker fell into a pool of acid, which not only left his whole entire body untouched but it also left him a bold, symetrical grin on his face. Just the sound of that makes me think... ok i'm not a 9 year old kid watching VR troopers or something (+ rep for anyone who remembers that ).
Now in Dark Knight, the apparent story is that he got his scars from his dad who took a blade to both of his cheeks - that just gives The Joker (as a character) a more dark sinister background, and its believable to which adds that edge.

Main thing is regardless of if its not 100% how it is in the games, with genres like MK its very easy to make the film cheesy and hence make it fail.

His acting was awesome, and he's still one of the best actors of today. Point i was making was in regards to looks mostly.

I've never seen a movie trailer that gives up so much information before the movie is even announced.

UPDATE: IGN gave a holla to Jai White’s people, and they were told that “White believed the shoot was a marketing component for the game.” Hmmm.

IMO, the trailer looks like a setup to re-film the D.O.A. movie freak style. I like the dark psychopathic theme, but in no way do I think this captures the MK universe at all besides the character names.

Is this the movie which was written by Oren Uziel and was said to come out in 2013 but was stalled by a lawsuit? Seems like Warner Bros was hit by a lawsuit from Threshold Entertainment which halted production. Just trying to get my facts straight while trying to find more information on it.
