MK3 fan made movie or hollywood
12/19/2003 01:11 PM EST
i have been hearing alot about this movie and i have high hopes for it.. i enjoyed the first movie and was disgusted by the second one... hopefully the 3rd installment into the MK series will go back to its routes. and i am hoping that they will cast actors who fit the parts perfectly not just who ever they could get or some one cause they are famous... the first MK cast no name actors except for two... they were perfect for the parts... the second one ... the characters were just flaky.. so that being said.. who is making the frelling film
that chill down your spine when your afraid.. thats me....

His opinion isn't worthwhile? The best thing to do here is to ignore him, and then if they do make an MK3 movie, come back to these threads and rub his face in it. Spite 101.

It's not that it's his opinion or not. He's saying it like he knows for a fact, when he obviously doesn't.

I apologise if it sounded rude, sure my post was just meant to be wry and sarcastic but in a light-hearted way, not a rude "I'm a know-it-all"... I just usually can't be bothered to insert smilies, and on the net text is not always read in the tone that the author was saying it in his head.

But i truly believe, in my opinion, that the movie is never ever going to emerge. At what point will any of your faiths ever be swayed to be open to this idea? Do we have to wait another 3 years? 5? 10? Are Mortal Kombat fans just meant to fantasise and believe "it's coming out" until they actually say "it ISN'T"... because in the movie business very VERY rarely do they ever come out with a definate 'no'... just let the dust settle and leave a lot of people wondering.

We're coming up to the 8th years since Mortal Kombat Annihilation... 8 YEARS since the previous movie that was an absolute disaster. It was a commercial flop, hated by the media, hated by Mortal Kombat fans, hell it's number 48 on the Internet Movie Database's "WORST 100 MOVIES EVER"! The TV series that emerged 1 year later was canned, the next TV series (FOMA) was cancelled before it even was filmed and was later simply shown online.
MK and Threshold productions have just been failing and failing since 1997 and Annihilation - just remember, 8 years since the passing of a sequel that was absolutely dreadful by everyone's standards.

That's not a lot of hope for second sequel - especially since there's not been ANY concrete news, just rumours and heavy gossip. Don't get me wrong - I'd LIKE a third movie, hell I'm the biggest nutswinger of Mortal Kombat Conquest ever, so I got no bias disliking for live-action MK or the Threshold... I'm simply trying to be realistic from the business side of things, as I'm fairly certain that there's gonna be a lot of disappointed MK fans out there otherwise.

I'm not telling you to be as pessimistic as I am, I simply want some of you to be more open to the idea that there's a fair chance that it might never happen.

Actually, it sounds like you're the one who needs to be more open to the idea that it might actually happen.

It's been almost 4 years since i was a regular here, before that I used to believe that there might have been a third movie, to make up for part 2. Years have passed, and still nothing. I don't know if you've been sitting around since 1997 wondering "I wonder what the next movie will be like", but I can tell you I have, and in that time there's be NO new evidence that the movie was in anyway coming together - rumours and 18-month old "requests of input" from an 'official' MK site are hardly signs of proof. Actos saying they were approached means nothing either.

Hell Mortal Kombat.com states the following:
"There is a rumor going around that one of the most awesome Mortal Kombat fighters will die in the third movie. If that were the case, which even MortalKombat.com isn't sure about, who would you want it to be, if it had to be somebody?"

They're the official site, apparantly straight from the makers themselves and even they dont have a clue what's going on - how can you have faith in that? The entire Threshold network has been dead and silent on ALL of its projects in 18 months. I wouldn't be surprised if Threshold was going into liquidation.

It's MORTAL KOMBAT, nothing more - the craze of MK died back in the mid-90s, it was a fad. Sure some people have come into MK through MKDA, but the vast majority of its fans quit caring years ago, the days of the action figures, baseball caps, stickers, trading cards, frisbees and comics are long gone.
A third movie is not going to set the world of mainstream cinema on fire like Lord of the Rings or Star Wars, there is NO other reason for it to be so secretive except for one... that NOTHING is being done.

Well I just did some research and apparantly Kasanoff is putting all his efforts into an animated movie entitled Foodfight out in 2005 and his plans for Threshold are to make them the future for all CGI-animated movies.

With that on the cards - it seems even more unlikely Mortal Kombat 3 is going to emerge... IF (BIG 'if' there), it certainly wouldn't be until well after Foodfight was released in 2005.

Sorry to drag this back from the dead, but I've either severely lost this argument or completely utterly totally won it (not quite sure haha).

A photo yesterday finally has the new MK cast photo prior to shooting commencing this week on the Mortal Kombat reboot movie.

In 2003 when this post began, reboots were pretty much not even a thing. I'm so glad Mortal Kombat has had its resurgence (I'm utterly loving MK11 like I never knew I could an MK game again after all these years), so in one way I was totally 100% right, there never was an MK3 from Threshold entertainment.

On the other hand there's a new (third) MK movie being made... was I right or was I wrong? Though my argument was about there being a sequel to Annihilation, at the same time they are making a new MK movie... so did I get it wrong?

Nevertheless I'm utterly delighted regardless, even if I did lose the argument haha (but I think I won, after all this isn't Kasanoff's MK Devastation! :).

Yours confusedly,

Art.

PS. Anyone else find it terrifying that we live in a technological era where I can just continue a conversation I was part of when I was only a year past 20 and now am on the steady approach to 40??!?!
