‘Mortal Kombat’ reboot adds ‘Black Mirror’ actor Ludi Lin as Liu Kang. Should we be stoked for this movie yet? Or nah?
I want to be excited for the Mortal Kombat movie. Like, a lot. Are they ever going to top Christopher Lambert as Raiden? Of course not. But the casting for this shit seems to be shaping up so far. First, it was The Raid star Joe Taslim as Sub-Zero. And now? Black Mirror actor Ludi Lin as Liu Kang.
The bad: James Wan is directing the new Mortal Kombat movie. Granted, I haven’t seen his horror flicks. But, man. His Fast & Furious installment and Aquaman? Woof. The good: Joe Taslim has been cast as Sub-Zero. So, I suppose we’ll see.
James Wan (Furious 7) is producing a new Mortal Kombat movie. This doesn’t really do anything for me. Other than making me want to rewatch the original flick.
The conceit is simple, yet brilliant. A drunk as hell Scorpion stumbling through classic paintings. It’s the little things folks! The little things.
Friend of the site — nay! — friend of the Brothers Omega in general Patrick Cooper is undertaking a pretty gnarly task. Said Cooper wants to analyze how “real-life tragedies brought about a paradigm shift in the way films about school violence focused their narratives”, which sounds incredibly delicious in a mind-stretching wanky sort of way.
Coop hopes to translate this son of a bitch into a book, and God love him I hope he does. Hit the jump a taste his analytical aspirations.
