They spend more on crappy movies that are guaranteed to blow. So, there's almost no risk to begin with.

Mortal Kombat is a rated R movie, especially in this version. Movie studios like making cheesy movies like Avatar which are rated PG. That way, parents might bring their kids to the movies. Teens will come watch too.

Rated R means less money for movie studios. Our music and movie industry is targeting 8-12 year old girls after all.

The reason why the movies lost respect of the fanbase was because the 2nd movie has a different film crew, director and producer. They didn't want to follow the games as closely as the 1st movie did. They instead did things their own way and adding **** in the movie that wasn't in the game...for example...Shinnok is the father of both Raiden and Shao Khan....and how ridiculously cheesy was Sindel and Jades acting through the whole movie.

Ed Boon was furious and embarrassed by the end result, and he had to work harder to make the games that came after that movie. I hope this is very successful.

Do people really expect much of it? Even the games have gone downhill IMO and it's seemed like a dying franchise for a while. Its gimmicky used to be the edginess but in terms of fighting mechanics I stopped bothering with MK.

Edit: Oh and the movies and the series were terrible :/

Yeah, MK Konquest was horrid, I honestly thought the first MK movie was decent....7.5 out of 10.....C. Hiroyuki Tagawa's portrayal of Shang Tsung totally saved that movie from being a "total wash". He's one of my all time favorite "bad guy" movie actors of all time!

Glad they didn't make it a movie; it would have turned out the same as the other two Mortal Combat movies

Love seeing Jax give a finisher to someone then the BGM starts screeming "DYNOMITE"

Movies was funny cause of the flaws intentional or not but still...
"I threw that **** before I came into room mother******!" Best line in the movie lol
