From IMDb: “MMA fighter Cole Young seeks out Earth’s greatest champions in order to stand against the enemies of Outworld in a high stakes battle for the universe.”

Poster Rating: F / B- / C+ / B-

Review: (#1) Sure, fans of the game will get it and might get excited, but as a poster design, it’s utterly uninteresting. (#2) Having the fire and ice elements split the design is a satisfying choice, but the lack of other details is not terribly interesting.

(#3) A lot of details crammed into the central image and while the circular character arrangement is fitting, it’s not very pleasing. (#4) For an IMAX design, this is surprisingly interesting with the dichotomy of colors alongside the dull arrangement of figures.

Trailer Rating: C

Review: If you’ve ever been a fan of the game, there are certain elements to this trailer that will appeal to you. If you aren’t a fan of the game, I cannot see how anything in this trailer would entice you to check out the movie. It’s a mess of cheesy samplings of video game dialogue and situations that don’t translate well for the unfamiliar.
