It’s extremely cool to see the character plan for all our natural top choices, which include:
Mehcad Brooks as Jax Briggs, Josh Lawson as Kano, Max Huang as Kung Lao, Ludi Lin as Liu Kang, Sisi Stringer as Mileena, Tadanobu Asano as Raiden, Hiroyuki Sanada as Scorpion, Chin Han as Shang Tsung, Jessica McNamee as Sonya Blade, and Joe Taslim as Sub-Zero.
The characters all appear to have their brand name computer game signifiers with a fitting measure of “authenticity” and “dirt” united onto them; it doesn’t feel performatively tense, much the same as a strong, fierce translation of some blockhead iconography.
It’s likewise cool to see imagined character Cole Young (Lewis Tan) get a spotlight here.
He’s the focal character of first-time chief Simon McQuoid’s interpretation of the material, whose account is by all accounts getting a touch of the circular segment from Johnny Cage during the ’90s film a genuine warrior who suspiciously joins this intergalactic competition and turns out to be intensely contributed.
They believe it’s an intense yet savvy decision, they think Tan looks dope as hellfire in this banner, and they just can hardly wait for this darn film!
Mortal Kombat comes to HBO Max, theaters, and IMAX April 16, 2021.
