From New Line Cinema comes the explosive new cinematic adventure “Mortal Kombat,”

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?
