Everyone who calls himself a gamer has played the Mortal Kombat game once in a lifetime. Currently, a film is being released whose whole concept is inspired by this popular game. Recently, the creators have shared a trailer about this upcoming film and it sure looks full of violence and action scenes like the game. The film will be distributed to cinemas so that it can reach audiences by the Warner Brothers Company. In this upcoming film, we will watch actor Lewis Tan portray the character Cole Young. Cole is an MMA Fighter who is very, very curious about the scar on his chest that is shaped like a dragon.
The character takes a strange mark on his body as a birthmark, as many people have suggested the idea to him, and as such, he is completely oblivious to everything. Later in the scene, we witness that Cole is accepted to fight in a very popular tournament called Mortal Kombat. Now, as a disclaimer, I’m telling you that there will be lots of action scenes in the film because Cole has the fate of all mankind in his hands when he enters the Mortal Kombat tournament.
As for the trailer, the clip has provided a lot of important insight into what this upcoming film actually looks like. We’ve seen human versions of other characters from games like Sonya as well as Kano and Raiden. The list of characters also includes Jax and Liu Kang along with Shang Tsung. Since the entire Mortal Kombat genre is action, we also have Sub Zero and Scorpion who are warriors in supernatural duels, or we can say unofficial mascots that the game has never publicly announced.
This new Mortal Kombat film will cater to die-hard fans of the game as well as previous films titled Mortal Kombat and Mortal Kombat: Annihilation from the 90s in hard reboot form. This is set to show all the violent action scenes that are in the game as well.
As for the Mortal Kombat release date, the film started production very early, even before the pandemic occurred. This gives all makers the opportunity to carry out post-production processing during lock-up in the comfort of their homes. In fact a trailer has been released for the film and it looks amazing. We’ve linked them in the article so you can all go even deeper into the story this new Mortal Kombat movie offers us. Now, we will get to the part where we will discuss the release date of this film. Warner Brothers has finalized that the new Mortal Kombat film will be released on April 16, 2021. As per the new policy of Warner Brothers, this film will come out both on HBO Max and in theaters as well.
