translated from Spanish: «Mortal Kombat»: acclaimed trailer for the new video game-based film

Warner Bros. released the first trailer for «Mortal Kombat», a new adaptation of the video game, by award-winning Australian advertising director Simon McQuoid, in his feature film debut. Let’s remember that the story had already been brought to the screen by Paul W. S. Anderson, although this installment promises better battles. The film follows the story of Cole Young (Lewis Tan), «an MMA wrestler accustomed to being beaten in exchange for silver, does not know what he inherited, nor why Emperor Shang Tsung of the Outer World sent Sub-Zero (Joe Taslim), his best warrior, an other-world cryomant, to hunt him down,» as the plot advances. 

«Cole fears for the safety of his family, and goes out in search of Sonya Blade (Jessica McNamee) at the direction of Jax, a Special Forces commander who has the same significant birthmark, shaped like a dragon. Cole soon arrives at the temple of Lord Raiden, an Ancient God protector of the earth who offers refuge to those who carry the mark.  There, train with expert warriors Liu Kang, Kung Lao and Kano, the rebel mercenary, and prepare to join Earth’s greatest champions in combating the enemies of the Outside World in a risky battle for the universe. But will you feel enough pressure to unlock in time your arcane (the immense power that comes from your soul) not only to save your family, but also to defeat the Outer World forever?» leave the intrigue.
