Yesterday, Warner Pictures took the gamer world by surprise with the trailer for the Mortal Kombat movie, which, so far, looks extremely promising (something very rare when it comes to game feature films). But did you know that there are many secrets hidden between each frame of the video, including characters that can show up?
Voxel analyzed the trailer for Mortal Kombat frame by frame and brings all the news you may have missed, including a very curious theory about Cole Young, the protagonist of the film who is not in the games. Come with us!
Sub-Zero is Bi-Han
For anyone who is a fan of the Mortal Kombat franchise, certainly the fact that there are two Sub-Zeros in the story is nothing new. However, the question remains: which of the two appears in the film? In an interview, director Simon McQuoid confirmed in an interview with IGN that the film’s icy killer is Bi-Han, the first Sub-Zero (the most perverse version).
Jax loses his arms for Sub-Zero (not Ermac)
In the sequence, we see Jax losing his arms, but not in the way we saw in the game reboot back in 2011, in which he loses his limbs in a fight against Ermac. The director explained again that, despite being a big fan of the games, he had to take some liberties with the script, which here brings Sub-Zero as the character who takes the major’s arms.
Probably, the change was made to avoid that the film has many characters (something that looks good, but that in a short time of screen there is no space for development of all of them and, in the end, the quality of the plot worsens).
