An earth-shattering episode that will have you screaming “Mortal Kombat!!!” at the top of your lungs. We are joined by one of the hosts of How Did This Get Played? and the Doughboys podcast, Nick Wiger. We chat all about video game adaptations and how successful this iteration of Mortal Kombat is at making a compelling movie out of a video game. Plus, we answer a question from the ‘Hotline’ about how we view actors because of past roles. And, as always, we’ve got ‘Staff Picks.’

In news, Justin Simien is making a new Haunted Mansion movie, Whoopi Goldberg is writing a new Superhero movie about “an older Black woman”, and Another Round is getting an American remake.
