Who the fu** is Cole young?
He’s essentially Johnny Cage right?
One of those “let’s make a guy that is the audiences way in” kind of character.

He is what is making me nervous about this whole thing.

Wish it was a series on Netflix and they followed the reboot story.

Josh Lawson as Kano, Loooooool!

The 1995 movie is a piece of crap, by far the worst thing Paul WS Anderson ever made, and Annihilation is even more abysmal, so a low bar to make here.

Hard to go by that trailer. Nailed the fatalities though.

Lack of info hopefully a good thing, seems like it's very true to the spirit of the games. More than the original MK.

"Kano wins......you f***ing beauty" :tearsofjoy:

Ok was very worried that this would be Annihilation bad.

Not worried now. Heard the director discussing the trailer and he is very knowledgeable about MK.

The special effects look great in the fight scenes.

Need to see more of Goro to see how that will work.

No Johnny but this other kid. Not a fan of that.

Only thing that annoyed me was the “I am sub zero” kind of parts. Apart from that the effects look awesome.

In the Trailer Cole is looking into the Mirror and has a flash of Scorpion... Then cuts to Scorpion fighting in Japan. So maybe a descendant of Scorpion, or turns into a latter day scorpion to fight Sub Zero??

I wrote that before the trailer drop.

Think he is connected to Scorpion in some way but there’s another theory that he is actually Kuai Liang.
