Warner Bros has released a new video to publicize the Mortal Kombat film featuring the cast of the production. Published on IGN’s YouTube channel, the material features new scenes from the feature film and comments from live-action actors.
At about three and a half minutes, the video shows more images of the film produced by New Line Cinema. In addition to bringing new angles of characters like Jax and Mileena, the video shows some scenarios that will appear in the feature film.
According to Warner, the cast of the film bets on diversity and includes talents from cinema, television and also from the martial arts. The protagonist of the feature film is Lewis Tan, actor from Deadpool 2 and Wu Assassin’s, who will be responsible for playing MMA fighter Cole Young.

The video released by Warner also features comments from actors such as Shang Han’s interpreter, Chin Han, and Ludi Lin, who brings the character Liu Kang to life.
