    Last month, we got the first images of the upcoming Mortal Kombat live-action movie reboot, giving us a peek at how the characters look like. Today, HBO Max released the first trailer for the movie, along with a synopsis:



    If YouTube's restriction doesn't work for you, you can also see the trailer from the official Twitter account:


    The live-action Mortal Kombat movie reboot will premiere in theaters April 16 and stream on HBO Max at 12:01 am PT/3:01 am ET on the same day. Will you be watching it?

    I just typed it into youtube and watched it uploaded by someone else. Looks good I'll go watch it. Just found it funny they expect me to send ID to watch a trailer.

    asking for an ID indeed sounds... weird. I get that there's an age restriction but maybe because you aren't signed in?

    but yeah, the trailer got my interest too. let's see how they manage with the plot.

    Well it certainly screams Mortal Kombat, I'll give it that. I'd be lying if I said I had high hopes for the film, but at the very least it looks like it'll have some fun, gory action.

    https://www.nsfwyoutube.com/watchmore?v=J983DiVbZ9k worked for me.

    Anyway cautiously optimistic after that.
    Not the best trailer I have ever seen and fight scenes... not quite as fun as a Tony Jaa film or similar grade, that CGI robot hand for presumably Jax was a bit iffy.
    That said I would not be expecting a trainwreck or complete mediocrity.

    Not sure why you found it funny. It's quite common on YouTube to have to be signed in to verify age to watch certain things.

    The plot is listed in the article. Sounds like garbage. No idea why anyone thought a reboot was even necessary. I personally won't be wasting a dime on this. The trailer alone looks lame enough imo.

    Because we have different senses of humour? Because I find the idea of a big faceless tech corp asking for my ID hilarious, not sure why you felt the need to comment at all. I was signed in. They still asked for ID.

    Not looking too bad at all TBH, and I don't say that only because a year without new movies has lowered my standards. Subtle nods here and there to the original, looks like they did it justice.
