Movie Marketing Monday

[Rec] 2

While I have seen Quarantine, I have yet to see the original film, [Rec], it was based on. Judging by the sweet [Rec] 2 trailer, I need to find a copy of the first film ASAP.

Mortal Kombat: Rebirth

This short was made as a test film for the studio to reconsider rebooting the Mortal Kombat franchise. I must admit, I am kind of intrigued by the slightly more realistic approach.


  1. If you've seen Quarantine than don't rush to find Rec as both are basically the same with some things being better in the original and some things being better in the remake. I'm baffled by how many people are responding positivly to this Mortal Kombat thing. I think it looks like an ugly, far too serious Seven lookalike.

  2. @Mike - After Mortal Kombat Annihilation pretty much anything else would look like gold for this series. Not that Mortal Kombat should have been a film series to begin with. I did not even click into the comparisons to Seven until you mentioned it. Upon re-watching the trailer I do see the similarities.

  3. The Mortal Kombat short looks very promising. I'm for this reboot if it's done right and with a good director.

    I haven't seen Rec nor Quarantine but that trailer looks cool.

  4. @theVoid99 - I would rather have them reboot a series like this instead of others that do not need rebooting at all (e.g. Spider-Man, etc.)
