Recap news: Mortal Kombat and updated Justice League movie trailer revealed

Mortal Kombat movie: First photos of Sub-Zero, Jax, Liu Kang, and more -  Polygon

Not to be confused with the 1995 version, it has been revealed this weekend by Warner Bros that they released a trailer for the upcoming movie called Mortal Kombat. Unlike the previous movies from 1995 and 1997, this movie will be rated R and it will follow closely to the violent fighting video game series. I can only show you the censored version of the movie, but if you are over the age of 18, you can watch the ultra violent red band version of the trailer. Mortal Kombat is set to be released in theaters in April 16th, 2021 on HBO Max and theaters.

story synopsis:

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?

Zack Snyder Talks 'Justice League,' Joss Whedon's Version - Variety

Revealed on Valentine’s Day, Warner Bros released an updated trailer for the upcoming movie Justice League. Directed by Zach Snyder, Snyder gives fans his perspective on this 2017 movie in his image. After the events with Batman v Superman, Bruce Wayne must gather the power of superhumans in order to prevent a global threat. Without Superman, Bruce will not only have to rely on his Batman identity, but with others such as Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and the Flash. These heroes must work together to face the dangerous warrior Steppenwolf and the approaching threat, Darkseid. This movie will be four hours long and it will be rated R. Actors will reprise their roles as well as Jared Leto who previously played the Joker. The movie is set to be released on HBO Max on March 18th, 2021.

synopsis:

In Zack Snyder’s Justice League, determined to ensure Superman’s (Henry Cavill) ultimate sacrifice was not in vain, Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck) aligns forces with Diana Prince (Gal Gadot) with plans to recruit a team of metahumans to protect the world from an approaching threat of catastrophic proportions. The task proves more difficult than Bruce imagined, as each of the recruits must face the demons of their own pasts to transcend that which has held them back, allowing them to come together, finally forming an unprecedented league of heroes. Now united, Batman (Affleck), Wonder Woman (Gadot), Aquaman (Jason Momoa), Cyborg (Ray Fisher), and The Flash (Ezra Miller) may be too late to save the planet from Steppenwolf, DeSaad, and Darkseid and their dreadful intentions.
