Jeri Ryan, the actress who appeared in yesterday’s Mortal Kombat video (also above) as Sonya Blade, has clarified what the seven minute plus ordeal is all about.
Despite what the timing of its appearance might suggest, it is not for a new game. Rather, it’s what was used to pitch a MK movie reboot to WB.
“It’s not a game trailer. Actually was made for the director to sell WB on his vision for a reimagined MK film,” Ryan writes on her Twitter account. “I did it as a favor to a friend.”
Whether or not the studio’s been receptive to the idea, she does not know.
However, “I’m not sure how you can contact WB to push them to make it. But you guys are resourceful…! ;-)” she urges.
