HBO Max Promo Reveals First ‘Mortal Kombat’ Footage

Say it with us now, "Fatality!"

A new promo for HBO Max revealed a preview of all the new films coming to the service, including the first footage from the Mortal Kombat reboot.

Mortal Kombat‘s HBO Max debut is only a few months away, but a new promo for the streaming service revealed the first footage from the violent martial-arts adventure starring Lewis Tan. Directed by Simon McQoid, the film sees Tan’s washed up fighter drawn into the supernatural tournament to battle it out against other competitors. The first Mortal Kombat stills which recently arrived gave fans a look at Lewis Tan’s new character, Sub-Zero and even Mehcad Brooks’ Jax Briggs.

The new HBO Max promo also features the likes of Dune, The Suicide Squad and Godzilla Vs. Kong, teasing the battles to come as well as fan-favorite fighters like Sub-Zero. The first Mortal Kombat footage in the promo teases the mystery behind the tournament as well as teasing the full reveal of Sub-Zero. Hopefully we’ll get a better look at some of the classic fighters when the full trailer eventually makes its way online ahead of the April release on HBO Max. In the meantime, take a look at the Mortal Kombat footage below.
