Now, this is interesting. A new trailer for the upcoming reboot of ‘Mortal Kombat‘ has been shared by HBO Max. However, in a neat little twist, the trailer is named ‘Meet The Kast‘. In the trailer, the ‘Kast’ members speak about their roles in the movie alongside some new footage that makes its debut. Take up your fighting stance and get ready for ‘Kombat’:
The film will be hitting HBO MAX and theatres from April 23rd and has the following plotline synopsis:
A washed-up mixed martial arts fighter named Cole Young is unaware of his hidden lineage or why he is being hunted down by Sub-Zero of the Lin-Kuei clan of assassins. Concerned for the safety of his family, he seeks out a clique of fighters that were chosen to defend Earthrealm in a high-stakes battle against the forces of Outworld in an inter-dimensional fighting tournament that occurs once in a generation. Appearances to be made by Shang Tsung, Goro, Jax Briggs, Sonya Blade, Kano, Scorpion, and more fan favorites!
The MPAA has rated the film a hard R, proving the filmmakers have pushed the rating to the maximum limit. Director Simon McQuoid has already revealed that he pushed the boundaries within the R rating. This was to ensure fans of the fighting game got the film and experience they deserve. And to bring the true ‘Mortal Kombat‘ to the silver screen.
Check it out in theatres and on HBO MAX from April 23rd.
