The first full length trailer for the upcoming “Mortal Kombat” movie has arrived and unlike previous versions, this film promises to deliver fatalities…
The updated version of “Mortal Kombat” will arrive in theaters and HBO Max on April 16 but the new trailer for the upcoming film based on the video game series dropped on Thursday.
Directed by Simon McQuoid in his feature-length debut, the new movie tells a similar tale to past films as a chosen group of warriors are selected to defend Earth in a tournament known as “Mortal Kombat.”
Unlike the predecessors to this movie, the new “Mortal Kombat” film is rated ‘R’ and McQuoid has promised to deliver plenty of fatalities — a notable favorite moment in battle scenes from video game enthusiasts that will finally be included in the film version.
Of course, all of the “Mortal Kombat” favorites appear in the trailer including Sub-Zero, Scorpion, Sonya Blade, Kano, Liu Kang, Raiden and many more. Here’s the synopsis for the upcoming movie due out in April:
“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?”
Check out the new trailer and get ready for “Mortal Kombat” when the film arrives in theaters and HBO Max on April 16.
