The dead silence has been utterly eerie. No news has been heard about New Line and Warner Bros. project Mortal Kombat. For almost 2 years, the field has been quiet regarding this movie, and I feel like it won't happen.
A look on the IMDB page for Mortal Kombat revealed very little except for a few tidbits:
- The Costume Designer is Alexandra Byrne-
You may be curious as to why this is at all important. However, it's very interesting. She is the same person who was the costume designer for Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy, The Avengers and Thor. What this means is that the costumes for Mortal Kombat will look pretty bad ass. I think her work on the Marvel films was very good and I believe her costumes will allow the characters of Mortal Kombat to look realistic and not cartoony. I believe the movie will try to have a more realistic, gritty look.
- Some plot keywords include: Remake, fatality.
This also doesn't seem important, but it shows that the movie may be an origin story of the tournament. I wouldn't like to see this, I want the makers to just jump right into the mythos of Mortal Kombat. Also, the word fatality being a keyword could help speculate a possibly bloody and gory movie. Yes!
This is all wishful thinking at this point and pure speculation. I just want to get excited for this movie and I want information now!
We will probably hear more about the movie after the game Mortal Kombat X is released. Soon after the game, I'm sure movie news will crop up and we will have out first looks in no time.
