Mortal Kombat (2021) Pitch Meeting

Step inside the pitch meeting that led to Mortal Kombat!
Subscribe for more Pitch Meetings:

Mortal Kombat was one of the very first video games to get adapted into a Hollywood movie back in 1995 and along with movies like Super Mario Bros, Double Dragon and Street Fighter, set the tone for video game movies being… not so great. Now, 26 years later, Hollywood is ready to breathe new life into the franchise and take a shot at the popular game franchise.

2021’s Mortal Kombat definitely raises some questions. Like why are we following this made-up Cole Young guy when there are about a hundred existing characters to choose from? How deep does this dragon-mark champion concept go exactly? Why did Cole go back to his family after he specifically left them to keep them safe? How exactly is Lord Raiden allowed to intervene? If death is just another portal and all these characters can come back, did any of this even matter?

To answer all these questions and more, step inside the Pitch Meeting that led to Mortal Kombat! It’ll be super easy, barely an inconvenience.

    So... If Behan hadn't taken Jax's arms what would Jax's arcana ability be? If Raiden could teleport people anywhere then why send Lu Kang on a wild goose chase in the first place? Why am I reminded of the black panther suit when Cole gets and uses his "plot" armor?

    The main commercial media entertainment business-sphere is dying from what I call 'Roman-Empire Syndrome'. Anyone can see that all of the remaining passion, creativity, integrity & authenticity is being drained & choked from it as it crumbles & implodes - in large part to hubris, greed, fear, arrogance, ignorance, external & internal political & agenda based pressure, manipulation, meddling, restrictions, and improper use if not usury. And so, quality suffers.

    It was in April, so a little over now, but between releases it was a little under by 6 days. Also means it was probably in production before Scorpion's Revenge, so the closes to it would be Mortal Kombat: Legacy which is 8 years old now
