‘Mortal Kombat’ The First 13 Minutes Will Establish Movie’s Tone

According to Comicbook, the first 13 minutes of the Mortal Kombat live-action reboot will establish the tone for the rest of the movie. Mortal Kombat’s producer Todd Garner described the beginning of the movie in a recent press event.

He explained that the movie will start with a feud between Scorpion and Sub-Zero. Garner explained:

“Where you begin the movie is everything. So if you’re starting with whatever character, that’s the movie you’re telling. So we’re telling that movie. You saw the beginning of our movie and that’s the movie we’re ultimately telling is what does it mean when you try to exterminate someone’s entire race, their entire clan? What is the responsibility of that? What does that mean? And what does it mean to the person who lost everything or almost everything? What does that person do with it? In this case, one of them goes to hell, and sits there and waits and plans his revenge. And the other turns into an ice Ninja that can freeze your blood and stab you with it.”

Garner continued:

“So clearly we’re setting up the heart of the movie in the first 13 minutes. So when you make that decision to start a movie that way with no English words spoken in a very carousel way with revenge and heartbreak and tragedy, that’s the movie you’re telling. And you can’t then just shift gears and have the ’90s techno soundtrack, and everybody in spandex running around, bicycle kicking each other. So once you make that choice, you have to stick with it and for better or for worse, ride that wave until it crashes. And that’s what this movie does.”
