The first blood-soaked trailer of Mortal Kombat is out, and
holy crap! There are a lot of characters to talk about!
Stay tuned to Hayvine for more information about Mortal Kombat 11 or mk11 including Mortal Kombat games.
First thing first, the trailer is age-restricted and labelled
as the “Red trailer,” which means that it is fully R-rated. After Warner Bros’ red-band trailer “Mortal Kombat the movie” is set to release on April 16, 2021, as a follow-on of the
classic movie series debuted in 1992.

However, the movie will not be anything like its
underperforming predecessors released in 1995 and 1997. Instead, it will
feature some of fans’ most admired characters and their fatalities under the
direction of Simon McQuoid.
The Mortal Kombat trailer was leaked online—ahead of its
official release— featuring the game’s violence and gore with some
cutting/slicing body parts and a lot of knife action.
Judging by its trailer, the film perfectly captures the
signature gore of the iconic game series, including its tone, story and
characters. In the trailer, each of the characters introduces themselves by name and almost every popular Kombatant is present in the movie, from Shang Tsung
and Goro to Scorpion, Kitana and Sub-Zero.
While the movie is based on a familiar narrative, there are
still a lot of blink-and-you’ll-miss-it moments that are sure to leave you
Here is a frame-by-frame explanation of the new trailer and
Mortal Kombat characters:
The trailer opens with words from Sonya Blade (played by
Jessica McNamee), a member of the Special Forces unit, as she recounts her
encounter with Sub-Zero (played by Joe Taslim), a being with a supernatural
ability to control ice. He used his superpowers to break the arms of Jax
Briggs (Mehcad Brooks), who later acquires metallic arms that we know from his
role in the game.
Sub-Zero is now looking for a man named Cole Young (Tan), an MMA
fighter with a mysterious dragon-shaped birthmark. He turns to Sonya and Jax for
answers, and they tell him, “It’s not a birthmark…
It means you have been
The birthmark is believed to be an “invitation to fight for
something known.” They might be talking about the great Mortal Kombat
tournament, which includes Earth’s biggest champions fighting against opponents
As the trailer progresses, we are introduced to the new
characters along with casting details of each of them. Check out the complete
list of all these characters and the actors who’re playing them:
-Joe Taslim as Bi-Han a.k.a Sub-Zero,
-Ludi Lin as Liu Kang, Josh Lawson as Kano,
-Tadanobu Asano as Raiden,
-Jessica McNamee as Sonya Blade,
-Tadanobu Asano as Raiden,
-Max Huang as Kung Lao,
-Mehcad Brooks as Major Jackson “Jax” Briggs,
-Hiroyuki Sanada as Hanzo Hasashi also known as Scorpion,
-Sisi Stringer as Mileena,
-Chin Han as Shang Tsung, possible portrayals of Nitara (Elissa
Cadwell) and Kabal (Daniel Nelson), and Lewis Tan playing a protagonist and a
new addition to the franchise, Cole Young.
Is he really an additional character? Or an old character
going by a different name? Are there any other characters that are yet to be introduced?
Who is left?
In the trailer, we see protagonist Cole Young as an MMA
fighter who beats the crap out of his opponent in the classic octagon cage. He
is born with a badass dragon-shaped birthmark that makes him a chose one.
The only character that is missing in the new trailer is the
action star-turned-fighter, Johnny Cage. Perhaps, we’ll later see Cole entering
the tournament with a completely made-up name: Johnny Cage.
Or maybe he’s an entirely
different character with a very different backstory. Whoever Cole really is, it
will probably be revealed to us throughout the course of the movie.
While talking to a media organization, actor Chin Han shared
some details about his character in the movie, saying, “He is this sorcerer, to
be faithful to the source material. He consumes souls and is a shape-shifter,
but he also has this appetite that makes him a force of nature.”
“There is a very dark humor to him. But, befitting the times,
there is a degree of authenticity to the role. You will find that with all the
characters – their motivations are believable. There are real stakes here.”
