First Pics Of New Mortal Kombat Movie Released.
- Posted On:January 18, 2021
The successful video game Mortal Kombat has previously been adapted for the screen back in 1995, with Mortal Kombat: Annihilation following in 1997. There are high hopes for this new movie from fans all over the world, with a good budget, great cast and James Wan on board.
The film is set to open with a fight between the warring clans of Scorpion and Sub Zero in feudal Japan before transitioning to the modern day where we will be introduced to a new character for the film named Cole Young, played by Lewis Tan. Young's said to be a "washed up MMA fighter" in a bad spot at the start of the film but knows nothing of his heritage except a familiar-looking birthmark (the famous MK logo) on his chest.
Soon enough, he will find himself swept up in the world and characters when he is recruited by one special forces major known as Major Jackson "Jax" Briggs (Mechad Brooks) who also has the same birthmark to seek out Sonya Blade (Jessica McNamee). They in turn then seek out Lord Raiden (Tadanobu Asano) and will come across Liu Kang (Ludi Lin) Kung Lao (Max Huang) and Kano (Josh Lawson) to name but a few in their fight against the forces of Outworld.
Simon McQuoid is making his feature debut with this film and it will be interesting to see how he turns his hand from directing adverts to this action-packed movie. Atomic Monster Productions and Broken Road Productions are producing.
The film is currently set for a release in the UK on the 16th April 2021.
