New Mortal Kombat movie images will blow your mind

If there’s a theme to be drawn from the collection of movie stills released by EW, it’s that there’s going to be ample action in this reboot. McQuoid also offered a glimpse of what fans can expect in terms of story, revealing that things will kick off with a ten-minute prelude set in feudal Japan. This scene will give the audience precisely what they expect from a Mortal Kombat fight with Hanzo, a.k.a. Scorpion (Hiroyuki Sanada), and Bi-Han (Joe Taslim) engaging in fisticuffs, and it looks as though the kunai blade will play a prominent role in this sequence.

At that point, there will be a jump in time as we arrive to the present day, where we’re introduced to a new character, Cole Young (Lewis Tan). In the EW piece, Tan describes him as “a washed-up MMA fighter who used to be a champion, who used to believe in himself, who used to have a lot of hope in his career. And it’s all gone down the drain.” EW offers our first look at what Tan will look like in the upcoming film.

The rest of the images give us our first look at noteworthy characters from throughout the Mortal Kombat mythos, including the likes of Sub-Zero and Major Jackson Briggs. McQuoid wanted to honor what’s come before, explaining, “I wanted to make sure that everyone respected the material, the lore of Mortal Kombat, the fans and the love they have for this. Everyone was clear on it.” From these pictures, it’s evident the movie knows what the fans want and is more than happy to give it to them.

Video game movies have come a long way since the ’90s. Could this be the start of a bold new future for the genre, with adaptations that aren’t afraid to dive into what makes these games so special? We’ll just have to wait and see when Mortal Kombat is released in theaters and HBO Max simultaneously on April 16, 2021.
