It sucks that Will Smith won’t be in the Independence Day sequel—but wait ‘til you hear the random explanation for his character being gone. Alas, this is standard practice. When stars decide not to come back, movies come up with rationales for writing them out, that go beyond “dog ate my homework.”
You know that saying, don’t hate the player, hate the game? Fuck that. I prefer the whole “crush the skulls of your enemies using the white hot rage of justice” approach...when we’re talking about Mortal Kombat, at least.
It's been a while since the fighters of the gloriously gory Mortal Kombat have been action figures, but we won't have to wait much longer - Mezco revealed that they'd acquired the license at NYCC, and have now released the first images of Raiden, Sub-Zero and Scorpion for us to ogle at. Hooray!
