The new Mortal Kombat movie trailer has been officially released

The footage is notably violent, seeing the terrifying villain Sub Zero tear off limbs as he hunts down Cole Young, a protagonist with a special birthmark who's fated to fight in a special tournament called Mortal Kombat.

Other characters to make appearances include Scorpion, Sonja Blade, and Raiden, while there are nods to some iconic fatalities, such as Lui Kang turning into a fire dragon and Kano's heart rip. Director Simon McQuoid was not lying when teasing this would feature gore and be R-rated.

The Mortal Kombat trailer leaked online before being officially released, somewhat taking away from its impact. Also before the trailer was released, we spoke to Shang Tsung actor Chin Han about bringing the iconic villain to the big screen. "He is this sorcerer, to be faithful to the source material. He consumes souls and is a shape-shifter, but he also has this appetite that makes him a force of nature," he told GamesRadar+. 

"There is a very dark humor to him. But, befitting the times, there is a degree of authenticity to the role. You will find that with all the characters – their motivations are believable. There are real stakes here."
