Warner Bros is poised and ready to drop the official trailer for the highly anticipated Mortal Kombat reboot and ahead of the footage premiere, they have released an official synopsis. The story will indeed focus on Lewis Tan’s character of Cole Young who is an MMA fighter who gets swept up in the surreal tournament that will decide the fate of our world. Read it below!

Mortal Kombat (2021) CR: Mark Rogers/Warner Bros.

“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?”

Simon McQuoid helms the film with Aquaman’s James Wan producing along with Garner with the script being written by Greg Russo. The cast is a great mix of international talent including Ludi Lin as Liu Kang, Hiroyuki Sanada as Scorpion, Chin Han as Shang Tsun, Joe Taslim as Sub-Zero, Jessica McNamee as Sonya Blade, Josh Lawson as Kano, Mehcad Brooks as Jax, Tadanobu Asano as Raiden, Cadwell as Nitara, and Sisi Stringer as Mileena.

McQuoid has promised us a very R rated movie complete with blood, gore snd most important of all…FATALITIES! Keep it locked and loaded right here for more including the must see trailer when it debuts.

An HBOMAX trailer was released a few days ago which shows a brief glimpse of this movie along with others including Godzilla Vs Kong. While we wait for full trailer, check out the tease below!
