The first full trailer has been released for the new Mortal Kombat movie and it looks like silly fun.

The trailer is full of fan-favourite characters, brutal combat, violence and fatalities.  The trailer features the likes of Scorpion, Sub-Zero, Sonya Blade, Kano, Shang Tsung and more.  We even get a glimpse of Goro.

According to the official press release:

In “Mortal Kombat,” 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?


The Mortal Kombat movie from New Line Cinema is directed by Simon McQuoid, produced by James Wan (The Conjuring), Todd Garner (Into the Storm) and E. Bennett Walsh (The Amazing Spider-Man 2).

The Mortal Kombat movie will launch at cinema and streaming service HBO Max (for the US) on April 16th.
