The search of Earth’s greatest champions, all so they can stand against the enemies of Outworld in a high stakes battle for the universe is what’s happening in new action/adventure/fantasy, Mortal Kombat.

Based on the popular video game of the same name, Mortal Kombat is directed by Simon McQuoid; and stars Josh Lawson, Jessica McNamee, Joe Taslim, plus Hiroyuki Sanada.

I definitely like this trailer more than expected. Especially when that perfectly epic music starts at 01:22.

There’s also the matter of the visuals. Particularly the scenes when Bi-Han/Sub-Zero is on screen. I’m sure that he’s the villain but the special effects with the ice, that’s my favourite.

Fingers crossed the story and everything else comes together beautifully. I mean, historically, making a great video game movie is no easy task. Remember Michael Fassbender’s Assassin’s Creed (2016)? I don’t because I was scared off after hearing terrible things.

Tadanobu Asano, Mehcad Brooks, Ludi Lin, Lewis Tan, Chin Han, Sisi Stringer, Mel Jarnson, Max Huang and Daniel Nelson also star.

Mortal Kombat Release Dates: April 16th, 2021 (US & UK)…

Johnny Depp, Bill Nighy and Hiroyuki Sanada are the stars of new drama Minamata. The story of war photographer W. Eugene Smith (Depp) and his journey back to Japan to document the devastating effect of mercury poisoning on the citizens of Minamata, Kumamoto, Japan.

Directed by Andrew Levitas; additional key cast includes Tadanobu Asano, Katherine Jenkins and Jun Kunimura.

As a big Jonny Depp fan, I cannot wait to see this. Even more so since this is one of his more down to earth roles. I’m also in for the kindness and to, at the very least, see that the companies responsible are being less careless with human life.

Lily Robinson, Ryô Kase, Minami, Masayoshi Haneda, Akiko Iwase and Kenta Ogawa also star.

This is definitely in the top three of my favourite trailers of 2016. I officially cannot wait to see this movie.

Anyone else wondering what on mars that scientist was thinking sticking his finger in there. Has he not watched any other sci-fi movies about life in outer space?
