Mortal Kombat is a hard-hitting franchise filled with some of the most brutal game sequences and eye-catching combo move sets. This revision of the film will display some of the most iconic characters in the game franchise. The trailer is action packed and seems to mimic the game play sequences well. Mortal Kombat’s new live-action adaptation trailer has the franchise’s fans buzzing all over the internet, with talks of fatalities and where is Johnny Cage?
Simon McQuoid’s Comments on Fatalities in Film:
“The Fatalities were always in from the get-go, there was never any question from anyone at all. There was no resistance from the studio. They wanted them, I wanted them,” McQuoid said. “There’s a fatality from Kano, he ripped someone’s heart out. But what was important to me was that even when the Fatalities arrived, we couldn’t just do a Fatality and have it mean nothing. … It actually becomes an important ingredient in the rhythm of the action scene.”- Simon McQuoid on IGN
The fans of the franchise are more than excited for the film’s new live-action adaptation. The fatalities are displayed as FLAWLESS. However, few are wondering where is Johnny Cage?
The character is not listed to appear in the film. But we did hear of a possibility of a sequel to the new live-adaptation. This might be where some additional characters will shown.
