I'm with you on that one!


If you get the chance, Check out my BOND 23 fancast ^^^

Luther - 2/19/2011, 5:20 PM
Of course yall do. You guys are kids. Isn't damn near ALL of this stuff, from comics to video games, meant to be fantasy?
What's wrong with trying a different approach? Especially seeing how the first two installments sucked.
I swear, you fanboys are something else..
thereaper27 - 2/19/2011, 5:20 PM
this is going to be sweet
gost - 2/19/2011, 5:24 PM
I think the way they are doing it as more of a real world Mortal Kombat is cool and I can't wait for the web series.
OnePunchBaldy - 2/19/2011, 5:27 PM
Its fantasy mixed with a realistic take
RorMachine - 2/19/2011, 5:27 PM
Because Luther, it's simply BETTER as a fantasy! By taking all the magic and fantastical creatures out of it it's stripping it of what made it appealing to people in the first place. I think this re-imagining actually looks decent, but it's not Mortal Kombat. It's a martial arts/cop thriller hybrid.
since86 - 2/19/2011, 5:28 PM
def this looks so much better then both of the films!!! If anything is done right it will be a huge hit. You guys want fantasy IT IS ALL MOVIES AND TV ARE you think someone can actually put retractable blades into their arms themself? LOL I agree with Luther and Chris Nolans Batman vs. ANY of the others... c'mon his are better and they are from what u guys say realistic. Point proven if done the right way anything can work.
Jer3miah - 2/19/2011, 5:32 PM
I agree with Luther. But either way, FANBOYS, the director already stated it's going to be a mixture, so how about y'all with the complaints...
CherryBomb - 2/19/2011, 5:37 PM
Love Jeri Ryan <3
she's awesome!

Christuffer - 2/19/2011, 5:39 PM
Wow gonna see this
Ven0m - 2/19/2011, 5:46 PM
This series is gonna be awesome. So what if its not all fantasy. Get over it people. Take what you can get and this will probably by far be better acted and filmed than both Mortal Kombats movies combined.
LucasMend - 2/19/2011, 5:49 PM
Looks pretty awesome. Great find LEEE!
Damn that should be a TV series, not on the web.
genesis609 - 2/19/2011, 6:18 PM
yeah i have to agree with alot of you guys.... i think this shit is gonna be garbage....mortal kombat is magic, sorcery, gods.... no realistic at all... wb should just make the movie and zack snyder should just direct it.... and i swear to god if they make shang tsung a fat dude with short hair in a suit like the trailer... im done watching at first glimpse lol
jazzman - 2/19/2011, 6:18 PM

aint Todd Helbing and Aaron Helbing writting the web series not Oren Uziel.


actually the first MK did not sucked it was good the 2nd movie sucked. also this different approach making all the character realisitic is just dumb MK is rooted around fantasy. what next Dr Strange with no fantasy and make the character and his universe realisitic.

anyway the WB said its going to link with the video game so they keeping the fantasy.
sweetre15 - 2/19/2011, 6:22 PM
Actually guys...This is NOT going to be Rebirth's story this is going to tie in with the new games and delve into the origins of the characters. If you read the recent press release the only thing from the short is going to be KT's directing style not to
Mention that Raiden is already cast in this series as well.
jazzman - 2/19/2011, 6:29 PM

well u are right about that but when u get some people disrespect the fans of the series we need to put them in their place.
scallywagthedog - 2/19/2011, 6:34 PM
ZIP! THUD! Hi! "Mr. Unpopular Opinion" here! Today's topic: Jeri Ryan. Far too old and bug-eyed to play Sonya Blade. "Yeah, but she's aged well!" That's because she's always looked old, son! Mr. Unpopular Opinion AWAY!!! ZOOM!
Weedbeater - 2/19/2011, 6:36 PM
god you fanboys are such idiots. The director siad it's going to be a mix of fantasy and (i say this loosely) realism. Raiden is going to be a thunder god not a man with electric guns. do some research before you [female dog] dumbasses
Nitrogenb - 2/19/2011, 6:41 PM
For once I agree with Grif. As a huge MK fan going all the way back to the MK1 arcade machines at the local Skating ring....this fails on every level. They need to redo the MK movie, but not like this.
jazzman - 2/19/2011, 6:42 PM

u mean actor Ryan Robbins as Raiden.


WB confirm it will be fantasy like the game it will have no link to Rebirth they only using the same actors who star in Rebirth.

LEEE777 - 2/19/2011, 6:48 PM
JAZZ @ Um, hey check this F'ING cool film out =



LUC @ Agreed dude, I'd rather a TV show big time!

Cherrybomb @ Sweet Pic!!!
Ven0m - 2/19/2011, 6:49 PM
Im happy that they are still going a fantasy route but the Rebirth short was still bad ass and just a different completely take on the series. I would have like it either way. Die hard fan boys need to get over the fact that not everything happens the way you want it.
jazzman - 2/19/2011, 6:52 PM

yeah i seen this trailer last year still have not seen the movie.


i guess u like what FOX Studio doing to the X-Men universe lol

sweetre15 - 2/19/2011, 6:52 PM
@ jazzman: Thank you jazzman and yep.

I find it funny how they tell us not to complain about the Rebirth vision but they complain about the changes in Resident Evil or any other CBM.

Not to mention their director of cinematography mentioned on twitter that they'll be having some scenes set in Edenia which means Kitana will still be Goddess and they won't butcher Sindel or Mileena either.
Nitrogenb - 2/19/2011, 6:53 PM
@jazzman ah, gotcha. Wasn't aware of that, I still question the casting coices, though....
Lebowski - 2/19/2011, 6:59 PM
I thought that was a pic of Jon & Kate minus the eight, at first

Weedbeater - 2/19/2011, 7:00 PM
se we still get fantasy while bringing realism to characters like Kabal and shit. Whos playing Kabal, Cyrax and Sektor
HavocT - 2/19/2011, 7:02 PM
I think I have the first issue of MK autographed.
I wonder how much it would sell for... is there a price guide somewhere?
jazzman - 2/19/2011, 7:03 PM

what u on?

MK Rebirth fan film was not MK at all it was Saw with fighters. this website is going to be closer to the game not Rebirth.


whos the cinematography for the web series.

also did u know actor Tahmoh Penikett is playing Kurtis Stryker


i know Jeri Ryan is good looking but shes just no right for Sonya Blade imo i still say Katheryn Winnick is better for Sonya check her videos out on youtube.

also Lateef Crowder as Baraka is just not right. great martial artist but a dreadlock Baraka LOL
sweetre15 - 2/19/2011, 7:08 PM
@jazzman: The Photography director's name is C. Kim Miles but his twitter username is VancouverDP.
Yes and I did....Pretty good choice for Stryker as well as Shane Warren as Cyrax.
Ven0m - 2/19/2011, 7:11 PM
@Jazzman umm not acutally I dont the first Xmen was ok the rest sucked but I formed my opinon after I watched em. All Xmen will be trash until its reverted back to Marvel.

However I did like the Rebirth verison of MK. I can like some stuff that doesnt directly adapt which in most cases and in most movies they wont. I still love the original Mortal Kombat and wish it would have another better Live Action movie. That obviously isnt happening so until then I like what I see casting wise with this and Ill reserve more judgement when I SEE the finish product.
Jp499 - 2/19/2011, 7:14 PM
Obviously, nobody who has commented hear read the press release for this web series. to everybodyu complaing about the realistic take with no magic, warner bros. said when that the web series would be, in so many words, a amalgam of the supernatural worlds and storyline in the game and the uber realistic one we saw in the faux trailer a few months back.
jazzman - 2/19/2011, 7:16 PM

hold up how many characters they are using they better dont people everyone in it lol.

but how comes no info whos going to play Liu Kang. they better cast Shin Koyamada as Liu Kang he did work with WB on The Last Samurai.

did u contact Ed Boon about if its really faithfull to the game universe.


MK Rebirth had great fighting and the gore but when i saw it and the character backstory it was not good at all. Baraka a dreadlock plastic surgeon lol. felt like what FOX did to Deadpool and made him Barakapool its just so wrong on many levels. and killing Johnny Cage again that was consider the worst thing in MK video game and they did that in Rebirth.
BFGLOOM - 2/19/2011, 7:17 PM
Dope name LEBOWSKI^! This can be decent but the rebirth trailer wasn't the biz....Johnny Cage is always gettting killed....hahahaha
Luther - 2/19/2011, 7:41 PM're exactly what I'm talking about. The first one "did sucked", BACK THEN it was pretty cool, and I enjoy it for nostalgia reasons. But lets be real, it wasn't that good of a movie.

..but anywho..I KNEW with every ounce of me, someone was going to bring up FOX and X-Men! Again...fanboys, proving me right. Hope to God First Class and Mortal Kombat:Rebirth will be AMAZING pieces of film. Bet you'll still find stuff to complain about.

Here's an about you jackasses invest in a camera, and write a script, and seeing you all know everything there is to know about making movies, MAKE A MOVIE!
Daniellantern - 2/19/2011, 8:51 PM
direct to DVD isn't it? hope it's better than Tekken movie.
