MovieNewz; Mortal Kombat Reboot (Finally)

Warner Bros have confirmed quite an unlikely reboot. Thankfully, for fans of the roughed up series, Mortal Kombat is back in the pipeline with a generous budget at hand. Mind-set on a new bloody adaption of the cult-classical video game, Warner Bros executive Lance Sloan is hopeful with their appointed director; “We're preparing right now for the film with Kevin Tancharoen, [who] directed the digital series for us"
  While the success of the video games are welcomed more than the majority of fighting games of that genre, some might say the movie adaption, Mortal Kombat (1995) was not all that great. However it is a debate I am willing to challenge because in terms of effort as well as the history concerning game to movie conversions, Mortal Kombat tops the lot of them. Nit-picking at such a fine attempt is unfortunate, however Christopher Lambert' Raiden and Robin Shou as Lui Kang was quite the entertainment, not forgetting the fight scenes; that somehow managed to flow without the use of human decapitation.

The sequel, MK Annihilation, was well and truly Annihilated! For more entertaining news see my MovieNewz.
