Previously adapted for the screen by Paul WS Anderson in 1995, with a sequel in '97, cult arcade beat 'em up Mortal Kombat returns to cinemas courtesy of director Simon McQuoid. This one stars Lewis Tan as middling MMA fighter Cole Young, who discovers his destiny is to take part in a fight for the future of the planet at the temple of Lord Raiden. Jessica McNamee, Josh Lawson, Tadanobu Asano, Mehcad Brooks, Ludi Lin, Chin Han, Joe Taslim and Hiroyuki Sanada also star.

Mortal Kombat is in UK/ROI cinemas later this year.

Check out the trailer and poster below.

The official synopsis reads:

In “Mortal Kombat,” MMA fighter Cole Young, accustomed to taking a beating for money, is unaware of his heritage—or why Outworld's Emperor Shang Tsung has sent his best warrior, Sub-Zero, an otherworldly Cryomancer, to hunt Cole down. Fearing for his family's safety, Cole goes in search of Sonya Blade at the direction of Jax, a Special Forces Major who bears the same strange dragon marking Cole was born with. Soon, he finds himself at the temple of Lord Raiden, an Elder God and the protector of Earthrealm, who grants sanctuary to those who bear the mark. Here, Cole trains with experienced warriors Liu Kang, Kung Lao and rogue mercenary Kano, as he prepares to stand with Earth’s greatest champions against the enemies of Outworld in a high stakes battle for the universe. But will Cole be pushed hard enough to unlock his arcana—the immense power from within his soul—in time to save not only his family, but to stop Outworld once and for all?
