MORTAL KOMBAT: Get Over Here! The First Official Trailer Has Finally Arrived & It's Absolutely <font color=red>Brutal</font>

Following a series of character posters, the first official trailer for Mortal Kombat has made its way online, & as expected, it's insanely brutal. See the heroes of Earthrealm fight to save the universe.

After this morning's international leak, Warner Bros. Pictures has officially released the trailer for Mortal Kombat, and as expected, it's sufficiently brutal.

The video game reboot will see the heroes of Earthrealm gather to fight the demons of Netherrealm in an attempt to protect the universe from absolute annihilation, and these warriors do not hold back! We were told to expect bloody Fatalities, and they are on full display here.

While the plot shouldn't deviate too much from the games, there will be one major added wrinkle as the film introduces a brand new protagonist in Cole Young (Lewis Tan), who will prove to be vital in the heroes' quest and will also seemingly have a mysterious connection to the legendary Scorpion (Hiroyuki Sanada).

The film stars Lewis Tan as Cole Young, Jessica McNamee as Sonya Blade, Josh Lawson as Kano, Tadanobu Asano as Raiden, Mehcad Brooks as Jackson "Jax" Briggs, Ludi Lin as Liu Kang, Chin Han as Shang Tsung, Joe Taslim as Bi-Han/Sub-Zero, Hiroyuki Sanada as Hanzo Hasashi/Scorpion, Max Huang as Kung Lao, Sisi Stringer as Mileena, Matilda Kimber as Emily Young, Laura Brent as Alison Young, Elissa Cadwell as Nitara, and Daniel Nelson as Kabal.

In “Mortal Kombat,” MMA fighter Cole Young, accustomed to taking a beating for money, is unaware of his heritage—or why Outworld's Emperor Shang Tsung has sent his best warrior, Sub-Zero, an otherworldly Cryomancer, to hunt Cole down. Fearing for his family's safety, Cole goes in search of Sonya Blade at the direction of Jax, a Special Forces Major who bears the same strange dragon marking Cole was born with. Soon, he finds himself at the temple of Lord Raiden, an Elder God and the protector of Earthrealm, who grants sanctuary to those who bear the mark. Here, Cole trains with experienced warriors Liu Kang, Kung Lao and rogue mercenary Kano, as he prepares to stand with Earth’s greatest champions against the enemies of Outworld in a high stakes battle for the universe. But will Cole be pushed hard enough to unlock his arcana—the immense power from within his soul—in time to save not only his family, but to stop Outworld once and for all?

Mortal Kombat arrives in theaters and on HBO Max on April 16
