Mortal Kombat - Behind The Scenes Video With The Kast

by Outsiders
April 05, 2021
Warner Bros. in association with IGN have released a new behind the scenes video with the kast from the upcoming Mortal Kombat movie.

From New Line Cinema comes the explosive new cinematic adventure “Mortal Kombat,” inspired by the blockbuster video game franchise, which most recently enjoyed the most successful video game launch in its history, Mortal Kombat 11. The film is helmed by award-winning Australian commercial filmmaker Simon McQuoid, marking his feature directorial debut, and produced by James Wan (“The Conjuring” universe films, “Aquaman,”), Todd Garner (“Into the Storm,” “Tag”), McQuoid and E. Bennett Walsh (“Men in Black: International,” “The Amazing Spider-Man 2”).

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?

The diverse international cast reflects the global nature of the brand, with talent spanning the worlds of film, television and martial arts. The ensemble includes Lewis Tan (“Deadpool 2,” Netflix’s “Wu Assassins”) as Cole Young; Jessica McNamee (“The Meg”) as Sonya Blade; Josh Lawson (“Bombshell”) as Kano; Tadanobu Asano (“Midway”) as Lord Raiden; Mehcad Brooks (TV’s “Supergirl”) as Jackson “Jax” Bridges; Ludi Lin (“Aquaman”) as Liu Kang; with Chin Han (“Skyscraper”) as Shang Tsung; Joe Taslim (“Star Trek Beyond”) as Bi-Han and Sub-Zero; and Hiroyuki Sanada (“Skyscraper”) as Hanzo Hasashi and Scorpion. Also featured are Max Huang as Kung Lao; Sisi Stringer as Mileena; Matilda Kimber as Emily Young; and Laura Brent as Allison Young.

McQuoid directed from a screenplay by Greg Russo and Dave Callaham (“Wonder Woman 1984”), from a story by Oren Uziel (“Mortal Kombat: Rebirth”) and Russo, based on the videogame created by Ed Boon and John Tobias. Richard Brener, Dave Neustadter, Victoria Palmeri, Michael Clear, Jeremy Stein and Larry Kasanoff served as executive producers.

Bringing the hugely popular property to the big screen, McQuoid led a team of Australian and U.S. filmmakers, including director of photography Germain McMicking (“True Detective,” “Top of the Lake: China Girl”), production designer Naaman Marshall (“Underwater,” “Servant”), editors Dan Lebental (“Spider-Man: Far From Home”) and Scott Gray (“Top of the Lake,” “Daffodils”), visual effect supervisor Chris Godfrey (“Hacksaw Ridge”) and costume designer Cappi Ireland (“Lion,” “The Rover”). The music is by Benjamin Wallfisch (“Blade Runner 2049,” the “IT” films).

New Line Cinema Presents an Atomic Monster/Broken Road Production, “Mortal Kombat.” The film is set for release nationwide on April 16, 2021 in theaters and will be available in the U.S. on HBO Max for 31 days from theatrical release. It will be distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures.

“Mortal Kombat” is rated R for strong bloody violence and language throughout, and some crude references.

Yeah Scorpion's Revenge is really cool, and it's shame they don't hold candle to a direct to video animated movie.

im assuming youre talking only live action cause scorpions revenge is the best mk movie out there. but i agree that the og film is the best live action mk movie. but best overall its definitelyscorpions revenge.

yeah meant only the live action.. i actually hesitated and thought about adding scorpions revenge in one of the best mk films out there. I enjoythem both equally in that they do alot of great stuff on their own. Was definitely interesting that scorpions revenge took the mkx design route, but overall excellent. Actually watching this new movie made me want to go back and rewatch Scorpions Revenge. I find it funny that BOTH had Nitara in them XD.

I was most certainly not a fan of the this new take. It had some great things but it was mostly not good. I pretty much assumed Coles inclusion was going to be the worst part of the movie, annnnnd I was right. Fatalities were cool but there was alot of missed opportunities that irked the hell out of me. Also there was some surprisingly bad acting and bad character development. OG 1995 movie is still the best MK movie out there. Best soundtrack, best fight scenes, and accurate portrayal of the MK story from the games. The arkana crap really bugged me too.. big oof.

I don't think there's anything greatabout this movie, intro scene is probably best thing about it, movie seems like it was made in mid 2000s, I would rather go watch original movie with all it's cheesy goofiness than this, it's watchable yes, actors for the most part do their job but script and story is unexciting, watching MK Lore youtube videos will make more thrilled than this movie. After seeing this and GvK not to mention whole ZSJL drama, I have serious loss of faith in WB as a studio.

I dont think this soundtrack will ever be able to compete with the greatness of the original and hell even annihilation had a pretty killer soundtrack. Maybe im just an old man now compared to the new stuff.. i like dubstep and at least they didnt turn it into a rap song and kept it in the electronic spectrum... I suppose it will do. XD

WaterTower Music is excited to announce the April 16 release of the soundtrack to New Line Cinemas explosive new movie Mortal Kombat, which brings to life the intense action of the blockbuster video game franchise in all its brutal glory, pitting the all-time, fan-favorite champions against one another in the ultimate, no-holds-barred, gory battle that pushes them to their very limits. The film, helmed by award-winning Australian commercial filmmaker Simon McQuoid marking his feature directorial debut, is set for release nationwide in theaters on April 23 and will be available in the U.S. on HBO Max in 4K UHD, HDR10, Dolby Vision, Dolby Atmos on supported devices for 31 days from theatrical release. It will be distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures.

The Mortal Kombat (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) contains all new score by Golden Globe-, Emmy-, and Grammy-nominated composer Benjamin Wallfisch (IT and IT Chapter 2, Shazam, Blade Runner: 2049 [w/ Hans Zimmer]). And today, the first single from the album was released. Techno Syndrome 2021 (Mortal Kombat) is composer Benjamin Wallfischs musical homage to the music, fans, and enduring lineage of Mortal Kombat. The track was produced and performed by Wallfisch and mixed and mastered by Tom Norris (Skrillex, Gaga, Zedd).

Director Simon McQuoid discussed working with Wallfisch on the score and on Techno Syndrome 2021. Ben and I both knew that we needed to use the classic Immortals track Techno Syndrome as source material for the entire score of Mortal Kombat. But along with that, we knew that an updated, elevated version of the song also needed to be created, and Ben certainly delivered. I am so excited by this new 2021 version of the track; when I first heard it, it blew my mind. Actually, Ben kind of blew my mind on a daily basis through the making of this film, so we can all thank Benjamin Wallfisch for his genius and passion in creating Techno Syndrome 2021.

Benjamin Wallfisch further elaborated. When I was invited to come on board Mortal Kombat, I was very aware of the responsibility that comes with scoring a franchise so deeply embedded in pop culture and with such a passionate fanbase. My first question was what can we do with Techno Syndrome, a piece of music so much part of the DNA of the game and the original movies? What motifs could be reinvented and blown up to a full-scale symphonic sound world in the score, and might there be room for a full reinvention of the whole song as an EDM single in 2021? A huge thank you to The Immortals for giving us their blessing to reimagine their classic track in this way, as a celebration of the world of Mortal Kombat and its fans, and of the uplifting power of Electronic Dance Music, which the original did so much to light the fuse of 30 years ago.

The soundtrack release date is set for April 16 and features 24 tracks by Wallfisch, who interpreted the films themes and emphasized the storys hard-driving, visceral action through his music. Fans will be thrilled to hear the composers heart-pumping score, which includes themes for such characters as Lord Raiden, Sub-Zero, Sonya Blade, Cole Young, Shang Tsung, Liu Kang, and Kung Lao, among others, and epic battle themes from the film, including Kano v Reptile and Sub-Zero v Cole Young.

Mortal Kombat (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) will be available April 16. The first single, Techno Syndrome 2021 (Mortal Kombat) is now available, and the full album track list is as follows. All music by Benjamin Wallfisch.
