Following the success of the video game when it launched in the early ’90s, Hollywood got straight in on the action and released the first Mortal Kombat movie in 1995, followed by a sequel in 1997.
However, due to the sequel’s poor box office performance and critical reception, further instalments were shelved, but it didn’t take too long for a reboot to go into development, and after many years, that feature has finally arrived.
For the uninitiated, here’s what you need to know – Outworld has defeated Earthrealm in nine out of ten tournaments known as Mortal Kombat. One more victory and Outworld will gain control over Earth forever and its leader, soul-eating sorcerer Shang Tsung (Chin Han), will enslave the entire human race.
To make sure he wins, Tsung sends one of his warriors, Sub-Zero (Joe Taslim), to kill all of Earth’s champions, who bear the dragon mark and are destined to fight for the fate of the planet.
