Those curious about why Jeri Ryan appeared as Sonya Blade in a recent Mortal Kombat YouTube video got an answer from the actress who explained via Twitter what the purpose of the seven-minute clip was.
The short video was a movie pitch, said Ryan. “It’s not a game trailer. Actually was made for the director to sell WB on his vision for a reimagined MK [Mortal Kombat] film.”
Ryan added more details in another tweet. “More MK FAQs: I did it as a favor to a friend. No idea yet what WB’s reaction to it was. And I’m not sure how you can contact WB…to push them to make it. But you guys are resourceful!…”
The video has received over 800,000 hits in less than a day on YouTube.
