Mortal Kombat Rebirth: New Movie and Game at E3 2010?

We have some exciting news for gaming fans now, as a video has popped up on YouTube, which gives us a great look at the next Mortal Kombat movie – rumored to be called ‘Rebirth’.

We have no idea how the video surfaced, although the YouTube user responsible for the leak is titled MortalKombatRebirth. The video is around 8 minutes long and gives us a sneak peek at the new direction for the movie.

We definitely like what we see here, as I’m sure most of you are feeling the same way. Gone are the cheesy costumes seen in the old movies, in favor of a more believable and real-life storyline. We see characters such as Jax, Sonya Blade, Baraka, Reptile, Shang Tsung, Sub Zero, with the main character looking to be Scorpion. Unfortunately, it looks like Johnny Cage dies in the film, which leads us to a conclusion that this video wasn’t meant to be released since that is a pretty big spoiler isn’t it?

Joystiq is reporting that the new movie could be unveiled at the upcoming E3 2010 event, along with the next entry in the video game franchise.

This is finally looking like the Mortal Kombat movie that fans have wanted to see after the first two. Let us know your thoughts on this. Who do you think is playing Sub Zero?
