Looks like the leak was true, and in case you’ve been sleeping under a rock, or just simply located in a different time zone and haven’t seen it yet, well get over here (heh) and go check out the Mortal Kombat trailer.
Spoiler alert – It’s gory, and that’s a very good thing.
Based on the trailer, the movie is looking pretty good, with fatalities and almost all of the classic characters that we’ve come to love from the series. Johnny Cage seems to be missing, and that may be a reveal for a later time, we hope.
Look, is that… Shao Kahn?
Could this be Liu Kang’s Animality from Mortal Kombat 3?
Oh, it’s Goro!
And is that… Reptile?
The overview of the film reads as follows:
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?
