Warner Bros. has just dropped a first full look at Joe Taslim's Sub Zero in the upcoming live-action Mortal Kombat movie, and he looks fantastic. While we got a brief glimpse of the iconic fighter in official photos last year, a new poster gives us a good look at his video game-accurate outfit
Take a look below!
As you can see, we'll be getting an even better look at Sub Zero and the rest of the fighters when the first full trailer for Mortal Kombat drops tomorrow. Up till now we've only seen a few seconds of footage, so after tomorrow we'll really be able to start judging whether this adaptation is worth our time.
Mortal Kombat is being directed by Simon McQuoid and features a star-studded cast of actors that'll be taking on the roles of some of the most iconic characters from the games. The lineup includes Hiroyuki Sanada as Scorpion, Mehcad Brooks as Jackson "Jax" Briggs, Josh Lawson as Kano, Jessica McNamee as Sonya Blade, Tadanobu Asano as Raiden, Ludi Lin as Liu Kang, and of course the aforementioned Joe Taslim as Sub-Zero.
The casting alone was enough to get us excited last year, but seeing Joe Taslim decked out in his full Sub Zero gear? Damn. I'm genuinely starting to think that Mortal Kombat is going to be really, genuinely good. Of course it helps that almost everyone involved has promised it's also gonna be super duper violent.
"Yes you're gonna get all the fatalities that you're used to, all the fight moves that you wanna see - of course we had to put all that stuff in there," Jax actor Mecahd Brooks explained to podcaster Duncan Trussell last year. "But you're also getting a real story about real people that you can connect with and identify with, and identify with their struggles, and that's the part that's gonna be really unexpected."
Mortal Kombat is expected to hit HBO Max on April 16. It may also come to certain cinemas around the world, but that's very much dependent on COVID infection rates and lockdown restrictions. What a perfectly normal sentence to end an article on in 2021.
