If you’re like me, April 16th cannot come fast enough as that is the day the anticipated reboot of Mortal Kombat is finally unleashed in theaters and HBOMAX. It’s been a long time coming but with the release of the red band trailer a few weeks ago, genre fans got even more excited as we were treated to some insane hard R fight action coupled with a sneak peek look at some of the promised Fatalities in the movie.
Now we have more of an exclusive look as a series of promos have been unveiled which features new footage and action as well as a deeper look at all the iconic characters that will be featured in the film from first time film director Simon McQuoid. The new footage also cements the eternity led feud between Scorpion (Hiroyuki Sanada) and Sub-Zero (Joe Taslim) and we also get to see more of the cast which includes Sonya Blade (Jessica McNamee), Mileena (Sisi Stringer), Kano (Josh Lawson), Liu Kang (Ludi Lin), Kung Lao (Max Huang), Shang Tsung (Chin Han) and Raiden (Tadanobu Asano). There are even more surprises for fans if you look hard enough.

A new banner poster was also released this week which certainly peeks interest for gamers and genre fans awaiting the brutal video game adaptation and you can see it below!
Watch the new promos below along with the red band trailer and get ready to “Get Over Here!” on April 16th!
