Mortal Kombat retains a special place in our hearts. We remember weekends where we spent beating up (or being beaten up by) our very best friends in that digital world, with gore, blood, and specific effects. Riding on the coattails of the success of Midway video game came a succession of films that tried to cash in on the attention that it got from the world. Nothing sells and MK was one of the video games to find the light of day throughout this decade.
Unsurprisingly, the first Mortal Kombat movie dropped, and anything else that went head to head with it from the water was blown by it. On the other hand, the franchise hasn’t seen that much success in theatres because, but Warner Bros. thinks they could produce the dragon dancing for them with the launch of a new Mortal Kombat reboot scheduled to be published in 2021. Here’s all of the information we managed to supply such as its cast and release details, about Mortal Kombat.
Who Is in the Cast of Mortal Kombat?
The list of actors set to show up in Kombat is a very long one. Fans of those games (both present and past) will recognize some of the character names. Those of us that are current with our celebrities will observe the stars.
– Liu Kang (Ludi Lin, of Power Rangers fame) is a Shaolin monk, abducted from the ground to get involved in a competition that pits the best fighters of the multiverse against one another. Jax (Mechad Brooks from Supergirl) is a Special Forces operative from the US which boasts augmented cybernetic limbs.Kung Lao (Max Shang) is another Shaolin Monk and Liu Kang’s best buddy.
He is most noted for his razor-sharp headwear.Shang Tsung (Chin Han of this Dark Knight) is a shape-shifting Shaolin monk who feeds on the souls of the others.Sub Zero (Joe Taslim of The Raid) is a ninja of the Lin Kuei clan which can manipulate the powers of ice.
Scorpion (Westworld’s Hiroyuki Sanada) is an undead ninja seeking revenge on Sub Zero, awarded otherworldly powers like a spear which drags opponents close to him so he could hit them.Raiden (Tadanobu Asano of Thor) is an immortal thunder god who is tasked with ensuring that ground does not lose the contest.
More actors constitute the cast, but these are the most recognizable game characters for those folks who have followed the franchise through time.
What is The Plot of Mortal Kombat?
Mortal Kombat’s particulars are scarce and would be the actors, director, and scriptwriter. We can not say if this movie will follow the winning formula if it’ll be something entirely different or which the movie presented. Is that it will bear no resemblance to the travesty that was the next movie in the series, Mortal Kombat: Annihilation.
There was supposed to be a third film in the series, but the poor saw the film get shelved and subsequently input development hell. But a fan-made short began to gain traction on YouTube in 2010. Following another short in 2013, the studio figured that it was a time that they gave the movie another shot at box-office success. It’s still unknown if we’ll be watching a whole new film entirely or whether the plot will draw from those shorts as inspiration.
Is There a Trailer for Mortal Kombat?
There is still no trailer available for Mortal Kombat despite filming wrap up in the winter of last year. The moment one comes out, we will probably be educated by the studio or director. Until that time, we are going to have to wait and see.
When Does it Come Out?
Mortal Kombat will release in theatres on January 15th, 2021. Mark your calendars!
