'Mortal Kombat' Producer Cried "Tears Of Joy" Seeing Reaction To Movie Trailer


'Mortal Kombat' Producer Cried "Tears Of Joy" Seeing Reaction To Movie Trailer

Not all games are about violence. Games can be about deep philosophical questions like Disco Elysium, or about friendship like Animal Crossing: New Horizons, or maybe even about making a nice little neighbourhood like The Sims 4. But sometimes, we just want violence plain and simple which is why the new Mortal Kombat movie trailer has gone down so well with fans.


The upcoming film is a reimagining of many of the beloved Mortal Kombat games and movie (there was only one movie, it had no sequel) set to release in April, and true to the game series, it looks absolutely brutal. We've already gushed about how cool the film looks, and how we hope it's a success, but just the response to the trailer we saw last week has been emotional for the producer of the movie, Todd Garner.

Movieweb reports that Todd Garner on Twitter posted an emotional response to the waves of support the trailer has been receiving. The producer says, "MK fans. I'm watching your reactions to the trailer & I'm in tears. Sometimes fans forget that there are humans behind these movies & I personally had to be away from my family for almost 5 months to work on this. Your smiles & gasps have made it all worth it today. Thank you!" He then makes sure we know he's happy with the outcome with a little "Tears of joy to be clear" follow-up tweet. Phew, thanks for clearing that one up Garner.



So far some of the characters we've seen in the movie vary from Sub Zero to Scorpion, to Jax and beyond. Familiar faces are everywhere in the trailer, as well as gore and exploding arms, so we're more than excited to see these characters come to life on the big screen once again. At least we know that the effects are going to be just a little better than the Mortal Kombat film of 1995 which, again, had no sequel. Or at least we hope that's the case.
