New Mortal Kombat Movie in the Works

On August 18, 1995, “Mortal Kombat” was released in theatres throughout the United States. The movie was a film adaptation of the popular and controversial video game known for its intense game-play and gory fatalities. As a martial artist and video game fanatic, I was a huge fan of the video game series and was really looking forward to the film's release.

On opening night, I sat shoulder to shoulder with other “Mortal Kombat” fans in one of the most crowded and energized movie releases I’ve ever experienced. As the movie began and the techno-sounding theme song started playing, the crowd around me literally erupted into a roar of excitement. One hour and 40 minutes later, the movie ended and I found myself wishing for more.

After the success of the first “Mortal Kombat” movie, a sequel, live-action television series, and even an animated series were produced, but none found much favor with the fans. Now, according to many sources online, Warner Brothers Studios is working on a new Mortal Kombat movie. It is currently unclear whether it will be a complete remake of the 1995 original or another sequel, but according to sources like ComicBookMovie.com, the new movie is likely to be more serious and dark.

Unfortunately, BeyondHollywood.com recently reported that the film's release date is being threatened by a lawsuit between Warner Brothers and Threshold Entertainment over the rights to the movie franchise. I guess we will have to wait and see what the future brings. I personally hope that Christopher Lambert is invited back to reprise the role of Rayden.
