Two separate hints. Once I use the spoiler tag it removes any text formatting including my line breaks :(

I'm not saying you're wrong as another way of interpreting look to la luna... but that wasn't what I had in mine lol. I'll have to be more cryptic about my hints. Yes, I was paraphrasing the MK3 slogan but again, I'm thinking about something totally different. In fact, some people may see multiple things that could mean when they watch the film.

He also posted a new training video with a new trainer.

As for your spoiler reveal...

This foreshadows something that, since Taslim was there, means they filmed some of this film out of order as was needed for the locations. In other words, it's still filmed in order of the script but there is a lot more stuff to be filmed inbetween. -OR- It could also be used to design his mask, or something new they added I know nothing about!

Max Huang has posted these cryptic stories to his IG story:

The first one claims he is headed to Australia at around 7am EST. At 3PM EST he claims he's off to L.A. Yet his boarding passes show someone else's name. I can't remember if he was already in Australia or not but if he was and he is just now coming back... and this is purely speculation... could he be on a break until he is needed again (very unlikely because too much risk involved) or have these buildings served as studio facilities for the sets, meaning this film hasn't been filmed in order?

Read the time's on the storys. The first one was posted 10 hours ago and says he's in Australia. The second one posted 3 hours ago says he's off to L.A. Read the tickets in the second story - they say he's going to L.A. There is briefly his second boarding ticket seen underneath this one where he flew from SA to Brisbane.

Today's Updates:

Max Huang, who has been in Australia for a couple days and is playing the role of Kung Lao, went back to L.A. today. No known reason other than it's possible he won't be needed for a while. A risky move, nevertheless.

James Wan is NOT on the set of Mortal Kombat. Instead, it was announced yesterday he has started production on his new horror film, Malignant.

Todd Gardner, another producer, is going to focus the rest of his time for the next 3 months to Mortal Kombat. He ended his 2 year podcast today and never once mentioned the movie he was working on in Australia by name.

I completely overlooked this is the first photo release from the first day of shooting. Thanks to this Twitter user, he wrote teh following: " Extras ‘cheering at an MMA fight.’ Sounds like @TheLewisTan will be the new character, instead of a boxer, he’s an MMA fighter. That would explain the cage/fence in the first set photo???" Yes that is an chain-link fence behind the clapboard with what appears to be MMA shin guards and a blood-soaked rugged-looking canvas. I cannot believe I missed that detail.

Blahaha thanks for pointing out my mistake and the new update.

This suggests they are still on track and Kano isn't needed until Coober Pedy. Max Huang doesn't appear at that location. Heads up... Get ready to especially follow Lewis, Jessica, Josh. We won't see Mehcad or Taslim again until after Coober Pedy. We should have a new person to follow if they accidently use #mortalkombat so we can find them.

I have no clue... but last year in July someone leaked location scouting had considered AU, NZ, and I even read Chicago. Most of Kung Lao scenes happen on sets so perhaps he has stuff happening there? Follow Liu Kang, Sonya, Kano, Jax, Mileena, Shang, Raiden, Lewis Tan to see if they show up and I could be better help...

Weekly Production Update:

Again, nothing solid beside some training videos have been released. We did see evidence of a film crew cup which verified the new dragon logo is the one leaked the first day.

Two weeks in... and we have yet to see a tweet from Greg Russo. I have no clue why given he was full of them before the movie started. We also haven't seen him in any of the cast/crew photos.

For the most part, Joe Taslim and Lewis Tan are the most active. Today, Mehcad Brooks tweeted this movie will be hot after watching the dailies (the raw footage of the film).

Josh Lawson liked to brag about going to a winery. Taslim (and I think Tan) went to a nightclub. The only time we see Todd Gardner is if he's having some kind of fun - being pushed in a cart by Tan or Taslim.

However, the most talked about "wrench" we have seen has been Max Huang leaving Australia to L.A. then days later being in NZ with a MK tag. Last year during early location leaks New Zealand was a place considered but was shot down by James Wan.

Which leads me to wonder...

How badly are we being trolled here? I mean, we can't look past the fact a lot of the leaked info from last year and even longer is becoming correct in some fashion. Australia being chosen as the site was the BIGGEST proof we had that the leaks had truth to them. I can't honestly blame them for keeping their lips sealed on this project - initially there was so much harassment from fanatics posted in comments to cast/crew and anyone who leaked information... they are really best to keep things as low-key as possible or leak a scene, like IT2 that only lasts a couple seconds on screen and isn't that telling.

I mean, let's face it, no one wants to be told "It better have Rain in it or it will fail" or I'm also seeing requests for Havik and I'm over here like, "Do these people not know anything about the origins of MK? Rain didn't even come into the picture for a long time." During MK1's release there were only 3 ninjas: Scorpion, Sub-Zero, and Reptile. Ermac was just a rumor. In MKII Smoke and Noob came about. Rain didn't come until UMK3. But Havik? Not until the 3D era with MKD. Spoiler: This was penned as a two-parter. I'm spoiling it now because if your favorite character from MK1 or the first MK movie doesn't appear in this one, there is setup for them to appear in Part 2.

Keep in mind when MK9 was on the dawn of release fanatics everywhere were tooo hostile. There were reports of MK fans knifing each other in bars and going all sorts of crazy. As each game has been released there has always been a string of crazy with it among fanatics.

I'm doubting, although the 2016 script mention Mileena in a one-piece revealing outfit, that we will see the women in revealing clothes. I'm also guessing we may not see too many of the men shirtless. With that being said, there has been a blonde woman present in a lot of Jessica Namee training videos and that woman, Ella F. is no stranger to showing off her body in a bikini or working out and I wonder if she isn't a stunt double for Jessica.

With the copy of the script I have being a year old and with script changes likely happening all the time during production as they run into any issues (every film runs into issues whether time constraints, weather, etc - so don't be bothered by it if we were to hear anything like this) this is definitely looking to be even more exciting. In fact, the script practically changed daily on the first MK movie. To this day I have never seen a copy of the shooting script from the first movie and it hasn't been made available to fans, only up the the Pink Revision.
