We got a chance to chat to Joe Taslim, who plays Sub-Zero in the upcoming Mortal Kombat movie, about how his character would take down some of the most iconic characters in games. His answers are... creative, to say the least, and he has something special for Lady Dimitrescu of Resident Evil Village.
The new Mortal Kombat movie is actually a reboot for the franchise from Warner Bros. Pictures, following the catastrophic commercial and critical performance of Mortal Kombat: Annihilation. The story centres on Cole Young, a downtrodden MMA fighter who bears a strange birthmark in the shape of a dragon. It transpires that he possesses an ancestral connection to Hanzo Hasashi, or Scorpion, and his prophesied victory in the tournament of Mortal Kombat will prevent Earthrealm from being obliterated. Plus, famous faces from the series will help or hinder Cole in his quest, with Jax, Liu Kang, Kung Lao, Sonya Blade, Kano, Lord Raiden, Mileena, and more. Here in the UK, the movie will land on "all your favourite digital retailers" on May 6th. We are especially excited, and while we wait for the movie, we spoke to Joe Taslim to quiz him on his knowledge of Sub-Zero and how the villain would eliminate characters from other games. Really, the glee with which he thinks up these fatalities is incredible, so play the video version of our interview for the full effect.
"Woah, she's huge!" exclaimed Taslim when we showed him Lady Dimitrescu. She's nine feet, six inches, specifically. "I'm going to freeze her legs first - from the ankle to the knee - to make her the same height as me," continued the actor. "And then from there, I'll probably destroy her hat because her hat is annoying, and I don't like it, and it's very intimidating." Note to self: purchase a large hat to scare off unsavoury undead warriors. "So once I destroy the top and the bottom, then the middle part is easy. I just have to pull the spine and then close it with a smile," concluded Taslim. "That's too violent, oh my God."
