When the Mortal Kombat movie arrives in a week, we’ll be able to yell “MORTAL KOMBAT!” The Mortal Kombat film appears to have everything you’d expect from a major MK film, with the exception of big-name stars. Instead, the Mortal Kombat film has (wisely) cast actors who are more than capable of the fight choreography seen in the trailer.
Former MMA fighter Cole Young (Lewis Tan), who is being hunted down by Sub-Zero, is also introduced in the plot. The icy masked man is hunting Young for a reason: he has (yet to be revealed) links to someone we’re probably familiar with from the Mortal Kombat games.
Of course, all of this is just a set-up for a slew of battles to come. The Mortal Kombat film will pit the Earthrealm’s best fighters against the Outworld’s most powerful warriors. Expect plenty of your favorites, as well as one potential surprise (which has already been hinted at).
HBO Max is a relatively new streaming service, but it already has a lot to offer, including all of HBO’s prestige series such as Game of Thrones, The Sopranos, and The Wire. American Pickle and The Flight Attendant are two of the service’s originals. HBO Max has a monthly fee of $15. View the Offer
