Mortal Kombat clip: game or movie debate rages on...

We are just a day later yet no where near being closer to a conclusion on what the mysterious Mortal Kombat Rebirth clip roaming the net represents. The strongest explanation is stemming from a Twitter post from actress Jeri Ryan which explains, to her knowledge, the purpose of the short film.

“Okay, so… Mortal Kombat. It’s not a game trailer. Actually was made for the director to sell WB on his vision for a reimagined MK film. I did it as a favor to a friend. No idea yet what WB’s reaction to it was. And I’m not sure how you can contact WB to push them to make it. But you guys are resourceful!”

That seems very plausible, although disappointing in my book. If that is simply a proof of concept for the new movie, Warner Bros. had better get moving on the project because it has set the internet on fire with anticipation. At the same time though, the short film’s other star, Michael Jai White claims that it was his understanding that story was filmed as a trailer for the new game according to IGN.

Game or movie, I want to see this project taken to completion. I love the new direction taken with the series in the clip...
