New Mortal Kombat Game

Source: Kotaku

With all of the recent news and rumors surrounding the amazing short film that came out a couple of days ago Mortal Kombat fans are in a frenzy.

If you were among them prepare to go insane.

A new Mortal Kombat is in the works. And it is going to be brutal. Mortal Kombat creator has this to say about the next edition to the battle royale franchise:

"This game really is a response to what players have been demanding; mature presentation, reinvented 2D fighting mechanic and the best, most gruesome fatalities ever."

Aside from the classic 1v1 grudge match against your friend the new Mortal Kombat will have extensive online play, tag-team option that will allow up to four players and what promises to be "the deepest story mode of any fighting game".

Between the short film and the announcement of this game I would say Mortal Kombat is coming back with a vengeance.

Will Smith Makes 3D Look Good

News flash!

In a recently released 3D promotional/teaser trailer for Men in Black III we find out two important things.

One we already knew, Men in Black III will be of course released in 3D. But infinitely more important is the fact Will Smith reassures us he will make 3D look good.

I am inclined to agree with Mr. Smith.

Unleashed in September


Louis Leterrier's 2005 action film Unleashed (AKA Danny the Dog) was a ferocious movie that starred Jet Li as Danny; a human dog raised and trained for the soul purpose of fighting is coming to Blu-ray. As you can imagine he is very good at what he does in ring, but he wants something more than the life of a fighting dog. Danny, the dog, yearns to be human.

This film, written by Luc Besson (La Femme Nikita), was so much more than a hardcore action flick, it was a deep look into what it means to have humanity. But don't let that fool you because there are some brutal fight scenes that only a skilled martial artist like Jet Li can pull off.

Besides the talented Jet Li the movie had a supporting cast of Morgan Freeman and Bob Hoskins (Who Framed Roger Rabbit). This new Blu-ray has special features that were not in the DVD or HD DVD release of Unleashed.

Extras Include:

  • Director Louis Leterrier: Unleashed
  • Serve No Master
  • The Collar Comes Off: Behind the Scenes of Unleashed
  • Two Music Videos: Atta Boy by Massive Attack & Unleashed Me by RZA

No official cover art yet, so stay posted!
