i am laughing a lot with this news. in fact whoever did this was either joking or really meant it.
I want to believe this is a joke.
according to Jezebel, the Feminist Website,
The cinema is back baby and in style! Forget authoring films from the award season in which two people are on the edge of a cliff somewhere in Britain, yearning for one another but never finding a way to make their relationship work, there's a new Mortal Kombat coming to HBO Max and life is very good. Scorsese is shaking in his huge glasses watching, probably for the fifteenth time, the trailer for the latest version of the film that brings to life the blood of the original video game. The trailer itself is worthy of at least two Oscars for its special effects and stunt coordination - specifically for the preview of a scene where Sub-Zero turns your enemy's blood into a knife! What!?
But, being the astute film critic that I am, I immediately realized a glaring error in the film. Where in all kingdoms is Chun-Li? If there is a battle for Earth's fate, then don't we need all the greatest warriors assembled, which would include Chun-Li and his spinning bird kick that can knock a man's head off? It seems like a big hole in the plot to me that the final street fight must be won by a disorganized team led by Sonya Blade, with no offense to Sonya Stan.
Chun-Li's absence aside, the trailer is dog bullshit (a term I learned from watching The Bridge on HBO Max too if you like competition shows) and the extremely bloody, action-packed film, which is a super study realistic in the cross section of kung fu and magic
I didn't write that, you can see the source of this shit here.
street fighter was launched more than deadly combat, it still doesn't make sense, and another thing.
it is very unlikely that capcom will crosolve with another at the moment besides tekken.
if you look frame by frame in the mortal combat trailler, the new film, we realize that the authors hardly fight each other and of course, as the blood comes out of the rib and the guy is stabbed by the suvaco, who explains it to me.
in addition to many things that were analyzed by experts on special effects that say that the lack of really good effects, it is because of the film that was very violent, and the company did not want to finance 200 million, but only 50.
hence the lack to take effect. which is justified.
