It is probably difficult in 2021 to realise how ‘dangerous’ Mortal Kombat was seen as when the first video game arrived. I remember my parents having it in the cafe and people were crowded around it from morning to night wowing at how crazy and violent this thing was.
Now we are getting a new Mortal Kombat movie and this trailer is much more dark and violent than I was expecting and I definitely cheered for certain characters, the same as with the game – Sub Zero and Scorpion are my bros! The only problem I have is the iconic FINISH HIM! now becoming FINISH THEM! but you know, that is hardly enough to boycott it over. Mortal Kombat hits cinemas, if such a thing exists, on April 16th and will also be on HBO Max in America on the same day.
