Warner Bros. have revealed the first official look for their upcoming r-rated ‘Mortal Kombat’ film.
Ew Magazine have dropped the first official image’s from ‘Mortal Kombat’ reboot which is expected to release later this year.
In the image’s above we get our first look at Liu Kang, Jax Briggs, Kano, Sonya Blade, Sub-Zero. Director Simon McQuoid dropped a few details about the film including how the first 10 minutes of the film start off as;
“The 10-minute opening sequence kicks off in feudal Japan, long before these fighters wielded supernatural abilities as Scorpion and Sub-Zero, and it ends in “a pretty nasty hand-to-hand combat” between the two.” – McQuoid
Simon also provides details on the new character,Cole Young who is played by actor and martial artist Lewis Tan (Wu Assassins, Into the Badlands), someone who prides himself on performing his own stunts despite the aches and pains that come along the way from training.
“When we first meet Cole, he’s in a really bad spot,” Tan says. “He’s down on his luck. He’s kind of a washed-up MMA fighter who used to be a champion, who used to believe in himself, who used to have a lot of hope in his career. And it’s all gone down the drain. It’s a very interesting place for a hero to start, and I think that, along the journey of Mortal Kombat and Cole discovering where he comes from, you’re introduced to all these other iconic characters and elements that everybody loves so dearly.”
Expect iconic fatalities in the film and some cool crazy one’s like in the game. They have also sneaked in some cool Easter eggs which you’ll have to figure out when you watch the film.
The first trailer for the film is expected to drop anytime now.
