Are you people serious?
A 7-minute short movie that's *rumored* to be a "teaser" for a feature film comes out. Called "Mortal Kombat Rebirth", it "deviates" significantly from the "classic" MK mythos, but features the sort of gruesome, gritty violence you'd expect from an "deathmatch" movie".
We've got names, and (presumably) similar backgrounds from some classic characters, and of course, the tournament.
And predictably, the nerds are going out of their minds over something fictional. Big surprise there.
What the hell else do you want? An exact word-for-word, scene-for-scene recreation of the original Mortal Kombat game on the big screen? You have any idea how horrifically BAD that would look? There's a reason why source material from video game/comic book movies gets altered a bit before filming - because it would SUCK if they didn't change it.
We're gonna have a bunch of wizards, robots, and brightly-clothed ninjas fighting each other on a jungle island? Ha.
Yes, most game/comic movies have been awful (thanks a lot, Uwe...), but that's beside the point.
This is what's called a "re-imaging" - where they take the original idea, change a few things around, and *hopefully* come out with something even better.
I was never a fan of the movies. They sucked. Didn't play much of the games, either, but they were pretty damn good.
And I loved "Mortal Kombat Rebirth". If they decide to make it a movie in the vein of this short film, they could come out with something new, modern, and damn good. All the power to them.
You don't "own" Mortal Kombat, and you can't get "everything you want", so shut up, stop whining, and get a life.
