Studio ADI, who did all of the practical effects work on Universal’s The Thing premake before dumping CGI all over it, has dug deep into the archives for the following.
Above you’ll watch a behind-the-scenes look at one of the creature effects from Paul W.S. Anderson’s 1995 Mortal Kombat, the first live action adaptation of the popular Midway arcader.
Check out “the mighty Goro from ‘Mortal Kombat’ in all his animatronic glory! State of the art in 1995 meant heavy electric motors to drive Goro’s upper arms, controlled by a telemetry suit feeding info through an umbilical into the 120-pound hero animatronic suit and early lip synch playback to pre-recorded dialogue. Also some quick cuts of the incredibly patient Martial Arts Trainer and Stunt Coordinator, Pat Johnson, who had worked with such icons as Bruce Lee and Steve McQueen.“
