Standing with Jessica and seen previously in her training videos is personal trainer Ella Fenwick, https://www.instagram.com/ellafenwick_/ I've noticed in one of her posts August 26 she was also training at https://www.instagram.com/ap8_stunts/ and I am sure I've seen them tagged by other Mk cast and crew. I cannot confirm or deny if she is just a personal trainer or possibly Jessica's stuntdouble as well, so I am purely speculating to why she is always with Jessica. In previous videos with Bridgette Wilson, Dana Hee was always with her in her training videos and that is how I am speculating.

Ap8 - Performance Training Centre

​UNIT 4 15-21 GIBBS STREET

ARUNDEL QLD 4214
M) 0417 948 278

These are the guys who done those awesome stuntwork in Mad Max: Fury Road so this is already looking like a HUGE blockbuster film.

The budget is unknown at this time.

FIGHT TRAINING

This has been geotagged by Lewis Tan as the Nino Pilla International Academy of Martial Arts. Thair trainer is Sifu Nino who appears to be an instructor at this facility. No information is known to what degree he holds in martial arts.

By the way...

I doubt they will be at Coober Pedyfor no more than 1-2 weeks, based on script content, and I expect most of the time they will be in the mountains area. I already see the the diner fits in and I haven't looked up the mountain area but it coincides a lot with what is in the script. Sounds like they're going TJB on this one boys...

It appears the guy playing Liu Kang may still be in Los Angeles.

As he should be. Liu Kang does NOT appear in the streets of "Chicago." In fact, don't expect him to be in Australia until they move away from Coober Pedy... if we are pretty much still on point. 11/18

For those who can't see these:

It's a photo of a film camera that read " ultra vista panavision 150" His caption states it has been used ONLY on the upcoming DUNE and Star Wars film using "super cinematic wide anamorphic lenses" with this lens specifically made for MORTAL KOMBAT!

Using the SPOILER tag for your answer... what do you think they are capturing that requires such wide shots?

Thank you. I was about to post that. These updates seem to only be heavy on Mondays and very light throughout the week.

I agree. It doesn't look "Earthyly." But that video is also made to be a political tactic by the Prime Minister to ward off his critics, including unions over there, who claim the production isn't using local labor force. And as you can see by the comments a lot of residents are uneasy with their unemployment rate over there.

The unemployment over there is actually related to the Mortal Kombat production simply because PM Steve Marshall is making it his political pitch to use the MK production as a means of employment for the AU residents and fueling its local economy. Recall whether in this thread or another one I posted an article about the labor unions claiming there aren't that many locals working on the production. If the New Line can't meet the minimum, they will be required to pay back money paid by the Australian government (I'm seeing $6-7 million and I have no clue if it's USD or AUD) to make this film. While I doubt it will cause a delay to be released I'm sure it could cause problems down the road if New Line screwed them and resulted in the AU government screwing its citizens to handle foreign affairs like this production. Trust me, tax incentives and grants are big business in films and are very important. We may not always see why at this early stage but we may see later down the road.

Also...

Look in the center of the photo. See that truck? It has a camera on it. These rigs are used to follow cars in motion.
