The Mortal Kombat red band trailer has got everybody talking about the upcoming live-action reboot. Along with the official trailer: Warner Brothers has supplied MK Online with high quality official promotional stills that capture the characters and moments from the action-packed preview. Take a look:

Sub-Zero (Joe Taslim as Bi-Han) catches point blank gunfire in rapidly forming ice in one of the most dramatic scenes taken from the trailer. The inventive use of the Lin Kuei warrior's powers are a precursor to the explosive destruction of the gunman's arms!

The images give a clear view of several characters from the games, including Jax (Mehcad Brooks), Scorpion (Hiroyuki Sanada), Mileena (Sisi Stringer), Liu Kang (Ludi Lin), Kano (Josh Lawson), Sonya Blade (Jessica McNamee), and Raiden (Tadanobu Asano).

The thunder god [pictured below] stands dramatically surrounded by crackling lightning in a rain sodden forest. It's one of the exciting images that passes all too quickly in the trailer, showing Raiden's full design with layered white and dark cloth. Some of the decorative elements can be seen more clearly in promotional character posters.

Mortal Kombat receives limited theatrical release and a simultaneous HBO Max premiere starting April 16th. Subscribe to the calendar event and download the MKO App via App Store or Google Play to receive notification updates about news and the day of release!
