Warner Bros. Pictures today released a new promotional trailer for its somewhat controversial decision to feature all 2021 movies in theaters and HBO Max at the same time, which includes a bunch of new footage from a variety of films, and which includes the next one Mortal combat restart the movie. While it also features the same little clip we’ve seen before, the new elements included in this latest trailer appear to include Sonya Blade, Scorpion, and Sub-Zero.
While this is by no means a full trailer, as recently teased for February, it’s a pretty good look at some action and special effects clips. The brief look at Scorpion also appears to show him battling what could be members of the Lin Kuei clan, the faction to which Sub-Zero also historically belongs. It also features Sonya Blade uttering the words “Mortal Kombat,” which is always lovely.

Here is the official synopsis of the next one Mortal combat movie, which was recently revealed:
“MMA fighter Cole Young, used to being beaten for money, doesn’t know his legacy – or why Outworld Emperor Shang Tsung sent his best warrior, Sub-Zero, a Cryomancer from another world, to hunt down Cole. Fearing for the safety of his family, Cole sets out to find Sonya Blade under the direction of Jax, a special forces major who carries the same strange dragon marking Cole’s birth. Soon he finds himself at the temple of Lord Raiden, an elder god and protector of Earthrealm, who grants sanctuary to those who bear the mark. Here, Cole trains with seasoned warriors Liu Kang, Kung Lao, and rogue mercenary Kano, as he prepares to take on Earth’s greatest champions against enemies of Outworld in a high-stakes battle for the universe. But will Cole be pushed enough to unlock his arcane – the immense power of his soul – in time to not only save his family, but also stop Outworld once and for all?
