A Russian red band trailer for Mortal Kombat has made its way online, hours before the release of the film’s official trailer.
While we won’t be linking to the trailer, it has begun to make the rounds on the Internet and on social media during the short hours after its upload. The Russian narrator appears to be speaking over the English version of the Mortal Kombat trailer. It also features much of the action and gory fight sequences fans of the video game franchise will enjoy.
Mortal Kombat released character motion posters featuring each contestant in the live-action reboot, showcasing fan-favorites like Sub-Zero, Scorpion, Raiden and a brand-new original character named Cole Young.
The synopsis for Mortal Kombat can be found below.
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?
