The first-ever Mortal Kombat movie red-band trailer has finally been revealed by New Line Cinema and Warner Bros. Pictures.
As you would expect, it features characters like Scorpion, Sub-Zero, Mileena, and Raiden, plus a ton of over-the-top violence and even more blood. The trailer isn’t technically our first look at the R-rated movie, but it is our first proper and extended look. Before this, New Line Cinema and Warner Bros. Pictures had released teasers, screenshots, and character posters, but that’s all they revealed.
In addition to previewing and revealing plenty of familiar faces and places, the trailer also previews the movie’s story, which is not only original, but reboots the MK film franchise. As the trailer reveals, the movie’s protagonist is a new and original character named Cole Young — who is being played by Lewis Tan — an MMA fighter who is being hunted down by Outworld’s Emperor Shang Tsung and his best warrior, Sub-Zero.
