Mortal Kombat Reel Garners Buzz

A viral video has hit today that’s spreading like wildfire because it plays like a trailer for Warner Bros. upcoming reboot of the “Mortal Kombat” franchise.

This professionally made clip starring Michael Jai White and Jeri Ryan also includes multiple decapitations, cannibalism, mutated people and a much darker and grittier sense to it than the previous two fantasy/action films based on the video game.

As for its origins? The clip first emerged on YouTube under the name ‘MortalKombatRebirth’ and is apparently a proof-of-concept reel that film director Kevin Tancharoen (“Fame”) put together with the help of fight sequence co-ordinator Larnell Stovall (“Undisputed III”).
