After a short trip to the movies, the reboot of “Mortal Kombat” can now be seen from the comfort of your home. The production debuted last Friday (06) on the HBO Max program.
In the new version, MMA fighter Cole Young, used to getting beaten up for money, ignores his legacy – or why Outworld Emperor Shang Tsung sent his best warrior, Sub-Zero, a cryomancer from another world, to hunt Cole. Fearing for the safety of his family, Cole sets out to find Sonya Blade and Jax, a special forces major who carries the same strange dragon that Cole was born with. Soon he finds himself in the temple of Lord Raiden, an elder god and protector of Earthrealm, who grants sanctuary to those who bear the mark. Here, Cole trains with seasoned warriors Liu Kang, Kung Lao, and rogue mercenary Kano as he prepares to take on Earth’s greatest champions against enemies from the Underworld in a high-stakes battle across the universe. But will Cole have enough trouble unlocking his arcane – the immense power of his soul – in time to not only save his family, but also stop Outworld once and for all?
Simon McQuoid (‘Premonition 5’) is responsible for the staging.
The cast includes Joe Taslim (Sub Zero), Ludi Lin (Liu Kang), Jessica McNamee (Sonya Blade), Mehcad Brroks (Jax) Josh Lawson (Kano), Chin Han (Shang Tsung), Hiroyuki Sanada (Scorpion), Tadanobu Asano (Raiden), Sisi Stringer (Mileena).
