Watch the first red-band trailer for the new video game movie adaptation.

The first Mortal Kombat trailer has arrived to preview what director Simon McQuoid and his cast led by Lewis Tan were working on in Australia back in 2019. It’s brutal and full of bloody bits too.

The clip starts with dialogue from Sonya Blade (The Meg’s Jessica McNamee), a member of a special forces unit, as she remembers the time she and her team went to Brazil in search of a wanted fugitive only to come face to face with Sub-Zero (Warrior’s Joe Taslim), a being from the realm Outworld with the ability to control ice. He used his cryomancy to shoot the arms of Jax Briggs (Supergirl’s Mehcad Brooks) moving him to take the lead and get hold of metallic arms that we have seen from his portrayal in the game.

Sub-Zero is pursuing an individual named Cole Young (Tan), a down-on-his-luck MMA fighter with a mysterious dragon birthmark but his  origins are not known. He moves to Jax and Sonya looking for answers, and they tell him, “It’s not a birthmark… It means you’ve been chosen.” It’s “an invitation to fight for something known.” That would be the Mortal Kombat tournament, in which Earthrealm’s mightiest champions face-off against opponents from Outworld.

There are a number of characters in this trailer, including Lord Raiden (Thor’s Tadanobu Asano), who welcomes Earthrealm champions with the mark to train at his temple. Those champions would be Sonya, Cole, Liu Kang (Power Rangers’ Ludi Lin), the cybernetically enhanced Kano (House of Lies’ Josh Lawson), and Kung Lao (stuntman Max Huang). Also seen in the footage are Shang Tsung (Skyscraper’s Chin Han), a sorcerer from Outworld who sent Sub-Zero to attack Cole; Mileena (Sisi Stringer), tasting her victim’s blood off her blade; the multi-armed Goro; and, in the final frenetic bits of the trailer, you can spot Kano battling Reptile, another character from the game.

The official storyline and description for Mortal Kombat says Shang to be the emperor of Outworld. However, the trailer depicts a statue of Shao Kahn, a tyrant of the Outworld throne across the video games.

Then, we have Hanzo Hasashi (The Wolverine’s Hiroyuki Sanada), who fights his mortal enemy Bi-Han in the age of feudal Japan before facing him again in present day when they both supernaturally charged as Scorpion and Sub-Zero, respectively. The fact that Cole seems to be having visions of Scorpion can’t be a coincidence either, right?

A lot of fatalities and also brut bits, those always gruesome moves characters can pull off in the games. Liu summons a fiery dragon to devour his opponent, Sub-Zero conjures an ice wall and hurls Scorpion through it, and Kano holds the throbbing heart of Reptile in his hands.

Then, for the sake of fans, Scorpion utters three of his most famous words from the entire Mortal Kombat franchise: “Get over here!” Just in case the score by composer Benjamin Wallfisch, based on the games’ classic theme music, didn’t get your blood pumping.

Mortal Kombat will be released in theaters and for a 31-day window on HBO Max starting April 16.
