Ed Boon Has Already Seen a Cut; Can't comment
02/23/2021 01:35 AM EST

Some fans have raised the fact Ed Boon has remained silent about this film often following with an implication the film may not be well-received although the positive response to the trailer's release has shut that door.

According to this site, Boon did see an early cut a while ago but couldn't comment on it.

These "fans" must be ignorant children or moronic adults who not understand how non-disclosure agreements work.

Why are you even reporting on this nonsense? Considering how secretive MK11 was, why is it so surprising that Ed Boon won't spill his beans on the MK movie? If he praises it and some fans don't like it they'll flail him alive. And on the flip side, why on God's green Earth would he negatively criticize the movie whose franchise he co-created? Especially in the "marketing phase" of the film. That's just stupid; it doesn't pass the common sense test. So why would he bother saying anything? This is common sense... or at least I had hoped. So this brings me back to my thesis: ignorant children or moronic adults.

These "fans" are also posters on this forum. So that's why I'm reporting. Alot of these fans don't know how much of any of the film business works hence all the hate before the trailer.

UPDATE:

After watching some of the cast panel hosted by the cast/crew of Mortal Kombat Legends: Scorpion's Revenge last year and noticing Ed Boon was featured, I can't help but to wonder exactly what Ed Boon thinks about the upcoming live-action movie. Obviously, non-disclosure agreements are what's probably keeping him from talking now and why he was able to talk about MKL last year... only after its digital release...

But, Ed Boon specifically states how the fans would be very welcome to MKL because it was a "true representation to Mortal Kombat in this format" and how we as fans have waited for 28 years (this was said in 2020, making 1992 the date he is using, meaning he's even ignoring the first MK movie) for this to happen.

So, while Ed Boon is officially mute on the topic of the live-action film, fans who warrant his opinion, since it does matter and has mattered in the last release, ultimately have a right to know his response to this since, as we can tell by the live-action film, it's definitely not a "true representation to Mortal Kombat" by any means. So we will have to wait and see if Ed Boon has anything to say and hope we can trust it as a genuine response and not a response WB paid him to say to help sell an already controversial-but-acceptable-and-tolerable upcoming film.

I also can't help but to still bring up the point - why is WB doing two different versions of MK across two different formats (an animated film and live action film) and if the 3rd animated movie rumor proves true, an announcement that came even before the first-live action film is even released, are they experimenting to see which format sells the best and go from there? Or are they literally trying to create two different universes set in two different formats so they could please as many fans as possible - those who want a true rep of MK in the animated format and those who want a modern twist in the live-action format. Given the fact the need for live-action films have declined, and in the words of my former film school advisor, everything has gone to television, is it also possible we start seeing MK serialized albeit a live-action streaming series or animated series or both? Will this lead to "There's an MK for everyone"?

Another update: Apparently Ed Boon had an interview with some gals where he talked about the movie:
