Best. Mortal Kombat Movie. Ever

We're not absolutely abiding area this video came from. Is it Warner Bros. viral business plan for the new game? Is it a sales angle to allure investors for addition movie?

What we do know, is that this is the best live-action Mortal Kombat anything, in the history of ever.

Watch the YouTube video beneath and see for yourself a actual gritty, actual absolute apple yield on the already and approaching kombatants of Outworld. Follow Detective Jackson (or "Jacks" as the endure two belletrist are achromatic on his appointment door, a nod to "Jax") as he flips through dossiers on Fatality-happy folk like Reptile and Baraka, ambience the date for what could be the best affair to anytime appear to the MK cine franchise.

Give it a bang to watch "Baraka Begins".

But is this some array of long-formed angle for a movie? Or is it a aboriginal blast to advance the new game, just a few canicule shy of E3?

Latino Review seems to anticipate that it is a "test video attempt for Warner Brothers to get allotment for a full-blown, harder "R"-rated MK movie".
