Update: Twitch is reporting that this is a promo for a feature film. Hmmmmmm. We’re not getting a new Mortal Kombat movie anytime soon (thanks to the ongoing lawsuit), so why not dabble in this 7 minute long online short entitled Mortal Kombat: Rebirth? While nobody knows why this exists (to pitch a feature, just for fun – or most likely to promote a new game to be announced at this year’s E3), it does star Michael Jai White (The Dark Knight, Spawn, Kill Bill) as some sort of detective walking us through the origins of the fighters. The production value is pretty insane, and it’s nice and graphic. Thank the Gods my friends didn’t make this because the fight scene would feature a leg sweep over, and over, and over again (dicks). Enjoy below and then tell us what you think! I’d love to see Scorpion as the lead character.
