Since I am NOT the biggest gamer out there, I am really behind when it comes to the “Mortal Kombat” franchise. I did see the first film but that feels like a forever ago and now Warner Brothers has decided to reboot said franchise and start us off with this exciting new chapter. This trailer is listed as restricted so when you click below you will be transported over to YouTube.com directly. Can’t control that my friends but do come back for some light premise, the casting and promotional poster art and my closing opinion on the matter.

The Premise:
A washed-up mixed martial arts fighter named Cole Young is unaware of his hidden lineage or why he is being hunted down by Sub-Zero of the Lin-Kuei clan of assassins. Concerned for the safety of his family, he seeks out a clique of fighters that were chosen to defend Earthrealm in a high-stakes battle against the forces of Outworld.

Opening Today: “Thor – The Dark World” (11/8/2013)

Yes my friends, the time has come for the second chapter in the second phase of the Marvel Cinematic Universe with the sequel to 2011’s “Thor” with “Thor: The Dark World”. I think that sounds a whole lot better than a simple “Thor 2” don’t you?

A primeval race led by Malekith, who is out for revenge, intends to plunge the universe into darkness. Confronted by an enemy that even Odin and Asgard cannot overcome, Thor must reunite with Jane Foster and set out on a dangerous journey that will force him to make the ultimate sacrifice.
