First Trailer For ‘Mortal Kombat’ Movie Reboot Is Here

The first trailer for the upcoming movie reboot of Mortal Kombat is here – and it definitely brings the brutal fatalities. While video game movie adaptations seem to usually always disappoint, from the looks of the trailer, it appears as though the film will try to stay as close to the games as possible – something fans of the franchise will undoubtedly love to hear. It’s also going to be very hard R-rated – something the films of the 90’s definitely didn’t go with.

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?

Mortal Kombat premieres in theaters and on HBO Max on April 16th, 2021.
