Those are exciting news, everything is set to make it a great movie. I know it will be good, I can fill it. I wonder what games in the series are they gonna base the movie on, and which characters will make the cut. I mean it's most likely gonna be based on MK1, but even the first MK film, despite being mainly based on MK1, also had bits of MK2 and MK3 by having Kitana and Shao Kahn (at the end of the movie) who invades Earthrealm.

But once again, it's gonna be awesome, that's for sure.

Can't wait either. I hope they won't screw it up like Annihilation. Hope they have learned their lesson.

I'm curious what characters will be in this movie. I hope to be Goro and Kintaro.
