Mortal Kombat was one of the very first video games to get adapted into a Hollywood movie back in 1995 and along with movies like Super Mario Bros, Double Dragon and Street Fighter, set the tone for video game movies being… not so great. Now, 26 years later, Hollywood is ready to breathe new life into the franchise and take a shot at the popular game franchise.
2021’s Mortal Kombat definitely raises some questions. Like why are we following this made-up Cole Young guy when there are about a hundred existing characters to choose from? How deep does this dragon-mark champion concept go exactly? Why did Cole go back to his family after he specifically left them to keep them safe? How exactly is Lord Raiden allowed to intervene? If death is just another portal and all these characters can come back, did any of this even matter?
To answer all these questions and more, step inside the Pitch Meeting that led to Mortal Kombat! It’ll be super easy, barely an inconvenience.

Asking if a 95 year old senile grandpa runs over a champion, makes me wonder about another question. What would happen if a marked champion were to die from an accident or natural causes?

Recently re-watched "The Hitman's Bodyguard" with Sam L. Jackson and Ryan Reynolds. I think it would be a quality pitch. 👌 Super easy to sell, barely an inconvenience

Just a thought to add another sight gag. Ryan has used the answer, “oh, really?!” after every “super easy, barely an inconvenience” lately. It would be a good sight gag to use the same “oh, really?!” scene from just one video for EVERY video- regardless of what year it is, what he’s wearing, or what film it is- in each appearance. Just another nod to the audience. I am constantly amazed at how he’s able to use the same catch phrases each time and always make it work! Great job Ryan!

Well Sub-Zero did come back as Noob Saibot, when he died... The whole movie was just fanservice from start to end... However as a Scorpion fan I got chills when he said "Get over here!"... I loved it...

The reason "Sub-Zero" left Scorpion alive is because he was framing Sub-Zero.

Could you do a pitch meeting for any of the stargate series?

You know long ago I thought Scorpion was the evil one and Sub Zero was the good guy.
Lord Trigon

Sub Zero’s brother who takes the mantle is a good guy but the original was a douche. Scorpion is usually a neutral figure with his own goals.
Kim McCulloch
Oh screen Rant is TIGHT
Anime lover HAVEN
The start with scorpion vs sub zero and everything with Kano was the best parts of the movie.All the stuff with Cole was pretty ehhhh it could’ve been a better movie without him.

Two suggestions: Tommy Weiseau's The Room Pitch Meeting, or Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors Pitch Meeting (A few well placed jokes about the original script and the final product would be tight!)

I love this series, but why aren’t all of the episodes in the channel playlist? I just found an episode that I’d never seen before and upon double checking saw it wasn’t in there. A different playlist I found had 236 episodes, without any of the compilation videos, and the official screen rant one only has 233 including those. That means a lot are missing. I know for sure Friday the 13th, pirates of the carribean sequels, and alien covenant are missing, and there’s presumably more I don’t know of. Please add all the videos to the official screen rant playlist, the channel has way to many videos to find them otherwise

I can't believe Josh Lawson is in this movie as Kano. If any of you Americans and others from outside of Australia saw him in the TV series Thank God You're Here, you'd be quite surprised where he's come from.

Couple random thoughts during the movie: “The Mary Sue with the dragon tattoo” “Arcana is like the midichlorians, and boy did fans love them!” “Hey Goro, had a problem with your ARMS DEALER?” “Raiden is a literal god who can do anything - except speak English.”

You should do a pitch meeting on the Mitchell’s vs machines.

I wouldnt say the Goro fight was necessarily super easy barely an inconvenience lol there was a little bit of an inconvenience

I would watch old man mortal kombat or just the sub zero vs scorpion film because that is genuinely more interesting is so many ways.

Am I the only one mad that Raiden has only ever had one fight scene and that that was in Annihilation??? I mean, you can beat the first game with Raiden so why is he always sidelined for being "Too Powerful" I wanna see the thunder god kick ass!!!

4:10-4:26 You're so right. It would've been so much cooler if Cole became Scorpion. What an example of wasted potential.
