Raise your hand if you watched the Mortal Kombat movie over the weekend! I saw a headline that it did good box-office-wise (whatever that means nowadays) so I'm guessing a couple of you did, either in the theater or on HBO Max... and so did I. I have... not much to say about it. There was some fun gore, some hot guys, and it was the sort of mindless thing I was looking for at the exact moment I watched it. I was never much of a player of that game way back when I was still playing video-games (which was when I was a teenager in the 90s) so I don't have much of a connection to the franchise; I never even saw the 1995 film. (That said even sight unseen I feel the word "film" straining to its breaking point there in that usage.)
But... I did mention "hot guys," and that's why we're here this morning. I could've done a big post for several actors in the movie honestly -- holla out to Joe Taslim, who will surely warrant his own post(s) at some point -- but I only realized after the movie that the dude playing "Liu Kang" in it was someone I'd posted about before! Ludi Lin is the same dude who'd caught my eye in that real porny episode of Black Mirror, and he was also up for the Marvel superhero role of Shang-Chi also circa summer of 2019. (That role of course went to the also super hot Simu Liu; we just shared the trailer last week.) I already had a folder on my computer full of pictures of him ready to go!
Of course, I am me, so I went and found even more... and then more still. I use the word "gratuitous" for more than one reason! But we're getting ahead of ourselves. Other things you might recognize Ludi from -- he was "Captain Murk in Aquaman (I don't remember who that is and photos aren't jogging my memory) and he was the Black Ranger in the 2017 Power Rangers movie, which I didn't see but which did gift us with this shot of him alongside co-stars Dacre Montgomery and RJ Cyler...
... for which we are very grateful. Coming up he's got a movie called The Disappearance of Mrs. Wu, and one assumes there will be a Mortal Kombat sequel since the box office was pretty good, not to mention the movie is really basically just a prequel for another film. It's all set-up for a tournament that never happens, lol! Total trash, but fun trash, I thought. Anyway back to the real important topic at hand -- all of those pictures I gathered up. And I ain't joking, there's over a hundred of them, right on after the jump...
Mmmmmmm thank you Jason. Personally, looking at Lin makes me forget all about that Sebastian guy people were raving about before...
Jason, you must enjoy your job....Nice banner pic
THIS is who Marvel should’ve cast as Shang Chi instead of that broad-bodied double-chinned middle-age looking gentleman they currently have in the role.
A little too much plastic surgery but you do you girl! Werq.
Thank you, Jason. Also, respectfully, would love similar treatment for Lewis Tan.
He. Is. So. BEAUTIFUL!
