The first official trailer for Mortal Kombat has been released by Warner Bros, and as expected it’s brutal and insane!
If you’re familiar with the games, then you’re familiar with the general premise of the film; Earthrealm heroes fight off the Netherrealm in an attempt to protect the universe.
Along with the new red band trailer, we get a new poster, featuring 2 of the iconic Mortal Kombat fighters, which you can check out below.
I’m a fan of the original video game adaptation, and by the looks of this trailer, I’m going to be a huge fan of this one!!
In “Mortal Kombat,” MMA fighter Cole Young, accustomed to taking a beating for money, is unaware of his heritage—or why Outworld’s Emperor Shang Tsung has sent his best warrior, Sub-Zero, an otherworldly Cryomancer, to hunt Cole down. Fearing for his family’s safety, Cole goes in search of Sonya Blade at the direction of Jax, a Special Forces Major who bears the same strange dragon marking Cole was born with. Soon, he finds himself at the temple of Lord Raiden, an Elder God and the protector of Earthrealm, who grants sanctuary to those who bear the mark. Here, Cole trains with experienced warriors Liu Kang, Kung Lao and rogue mercenary Kano, as he prepares to stand with Earth’s greatest champions against the enemies of Outworld in a high stakes battle for the universe. But will Cole be pushed hard enough to unlock his arcana—the immense power from within his soul—in time to save not only his family, but to stop Outworld once and for all?
