Video of the Day #2: The MORTAL KOMBAT Trailer...
Warner Bros. Pictures
"Finish Him (or Her)!" The famous declaration made before a Fatality is conducted will be heard once again in this spring's latest cinematic incarnation of Mortal Kombat. Produced by James Wan (who directed DC's Aquaman as well as The Conjuring 1 and 2), Mortal Kombat will premiere on HBO Max and in theaters on April 16...with an 'R' rating that will insure that this film will live up to the gruesome martial arts sequences that defined the classic video games. I never saw 1995's Mortal Kombat movie (directed by Paul W.S. Anderson) nor its 1997 sequel, Mortal Kombat: Annihilation, but I look forward to watching this newest version in two months. How can I not considering the cool scene above showing Sub-Zero (Joe Taslim) freezing the arms right off of Jax (Mehcad Brooks)? I reckon that this movie will be bloody fun...quite literally. Carry on.
