Four arms of fury: How the special effects team brought Goro to life in the first Mortal Kombat movie

Goro was known in the first Mortal Kombat movie for his unintentionally hilarious moments. Some of his facial expressions and actions really couldn't be viewed as anything but comedic.

Still, the actual process of bringing him to life in the film is pretty interesting, and we've posted a behind the scenes video which shows many of the devices, make-up applications and others that brought this four-armed dude to the big screen.

Goro was a 120lb animatronic suit, meaning the guy with him strapped on his torso had to be in pretty good shape, and be able to hold that amount of weight for a long period of time. You can find the video after the break.

Earlier today, a poster surfaced over on the Xbox One sub-Reddit that shows a heavily battered spinal cord with the re-stylized Mortal Kombat dragon logo at the bottom. Hit the jump to check it out.

Ed Boon's recent Twitter hint may be pointing in the direction of Mortal Kombat 10

NetherRealm Studios' Ed Boon continues to leave cryptic hints at a possible upcoming title over on Twitter. Just yesterday, Boon posted a picture of a car's back emblem that reads, "MKX."

The Mortal Kombat creator added a quick message that asks, "Hmmm... I wonder what the X stands for?" As many know, the last MK title, although simply deemed "Mortal Kombat," is actually the 9th game in the series. Could Ed be hinting at Mortal Kombat X (10)?

Earlier this month, Boon began a countdown on Twitter that is set to end on June 2nd of this year, given he continues dropping hints at a steady rate.

Cyborg vs. cyborg: ScrewAttack pits Killer Instinct's Fulgore against Mortal Kombat's Sektor in their latest 'Death Battle' video

If you've played the old-school Killer Instinct or Mortal Kombat games, there's a good chance that Fulgore from KI and Sektor from MK might have left a deep impression within you, even if they are characters you never played.

Like 'em or hate 'em, Fulgore and Sektor somehow managed to work their way into your latent subconscious minds and long-term memory banks, in spite of each game's colourful cast.

Simply because the two are cyborgs. They're kind of like Street Fighter's Shotos -- except way easier to clone.

And while we likely won't be seeing a Killer Instinct vs. Mortal Kombat fighting game anytime soon, thanks to ScrewAttack.com's latest Death Battle video, we'll at least be able to settle once and for all who would emerge victorious in a fight between the two games' meanest, leanest Killer/Kombatant.

As with all of ScrewAttack's Death Battle videos, before the actual fight there is an extensive tale of the tape for each character, that sizes up all of their available weaponry and fighting prowess -- along with trivia you might have missed.

Hit the jump to watch the fight, and see if you can predict who the victor is -- lock your vote by commenting before starting the vid.

Ultimate cosplay? Photos of Kitana, Sonya, Liu Kang and more surface in full costume for cancelled HD remake of Mortal Kombat

Make-up artist Tanea Brooks put up photos of the cancelled Mortal Kombat HD remake on to her website.

These actors would have been playing Kitana, Sonya, Liu Kang and more. They're shown here in full costume, but Midway's initial plan got axed, and we ended up with Mortal Kombat Kollection in its place.

Despite the fact this will likely never see the light of day, it's kind of cool to see a behind the scenes look at how Midway planned on putting the project together. Hit the jump to see all of the photos.

Ed Boon is counting down to something on Twitter - Is it a new Mortal Kombat? Injustice? Or something else?

NetherRealm Studios' Ed Boon has started a countdown over on Twitter that may be leading up to the company's next game reveal. The Mortal Kombat kreator has now sent out three cryptic hints, each of which unveiling a number descending from 29.

The first tweet asked for the square root of 841, which comes out to 29. The second asked for the number of days in (non-leap-year) February, which is 28. Today's tweet simply linked up a video clip from the television show, The Simpsons, which ends with the number 27.

If Boon continues this countdown, it should end right around June 2. A recent rumor suggests that a sequel to the DC Comics brawler, Injustice: Gods Among Us, may currently be in the works. However, back in February of this year, star of the 24 television series, Keifer Sutherland, mentioned on Twitter that he recently concluded work on a Mortal Kombat title.

Whether NetherRealm Studios is working on either game or something completely new is still yet to be revealed. We'll just have to wait until the end of Mr. Boon's countdown to see what they have in store for fans.
