We’re still kind of miffed that Warner Bros. Pictures decided to push “Mortal Kombat” back. True, it’s only a week, so that isn’t too bad. But every time we see a new trailer, image, or featurette for the R-rated reboot, we want it NOW.
This newest special behind-the-scenes look at the film introduces us to each of the warriors we’ll meet.
Simon McQuiod directs from a screenplay by Greg Russo and Dave Callaham, based on the videogame created by Ed Boon and John Tobias.
