Since the successful launch of Mortal Kombat 11 in April of this year, the fighting game franchise continues to hit new strides as it gets closer to its 27th anniversary.

The same can also be said for New Line Cinema’s reboot of the Paul W.S. Anderson directed 1995 movie — the crew has just cast Joe Taslim for the role of Sub Zero. He is best known for his debut as an actor and martial artist in the hit 2011 film from Indonesia, The Raid.

Produced by James Wan (Aquaman and The Conjuring) it will also be the film debut of commercial director Simon McQuoid. The film is currently set to start shooting later this year in the southern area of Australia.

Or would you rather we run no news at all? All feedback welcome!

Hello my good sir! Man, after reading your reviews for years, I feel like I know you, Dan, Mike, and all the regulars here like good old friends. But I especially appreciate your work Brad, I think you give this site a very unique direction and keep folks well organized. You guys have a good, mature team of writers that produce their work as a hobby, not as a “job”. You are not getting paid by advertisers, so you have the liberty to cater to a different audiences, with different tastes. More nuanced, more sophisticated, I dare to say, audiences.… Read more »

Hey Eddie! Thanks for the kind words, they are much appreciated, and thanks for being a reader! It’s good to know we’re not flinging reviews out into a void. ^_^ I appreciate the feedback and we’ll see if other folks have comments, either yea or nay.

Nothing’s set in stone and we’ll test the waters, but rest assured the… Read more »
