Although the new trailer for the film adaptation of the Mortal Kombat series has yet to arrive, the Russian version of the trailer has been released prematurely. The premiere was supposed to take place this afternoon at 6 pm Central European Time, but if you don’t mind Russian dubbing, you can see two and a half minutes of the upcoming film now.
Update: Warner Bros. Studio Pictures has already published the official version in English of the original on YouTube.
Already in mid-April in cinemas and on HBO Max
The original message continues: In the action you can see a whole host of popular characters, admire their costumes and also fragments of martial arts. While the trailer certainly can’t and doesn’t want to expose everything in full nudity, it’s clear that the filmmakers didn’t speak to the wind, promising that the new Hollywood adaptation would be authentic in terms of violence and cult fatalities. Already in the trailer, a few juicy shots flash.
Mortal Kombat premieres on April 16 in selected cinemas where possible. In theory, she could even be with us a day earlier. However, many more viewers will probably look at the novelty thanks to the HBO Max streaming service, where the film will also appear in mid-April in parallel with cinemas.
The film is directed by Simon McQuoid and will be his feature debut. The screenplay was written by Greg Russo and Dave Callaham. Russo is working on a host of other adaptations, including Saints Row and Space Invaders. As a co-author, Callaham is signed to films such as Wonder Woman 1984, Zombieland: Blow of Certainty, Godzilla or Doom.
Of course, it is a reboot of the brand on the silver screen and the film will feature Lewis Tan, Jessica McNamee, Josh Lawson, Tadanobu Asano, Mehcad Brooks, Ludi Lin, Chin Han and Joe Taslim. The film was shot at Adelaide Studios and elsewhere in Australia from September to December 2019. The music was composed by Benjamin Wallfisch, who did the soundtrack for To, Blade Runner 2049 and Annabelle 2: The Birth of Evil. The protagonist of the film is the new fighter Cole Young, played by Lewis Tan.
