Well the acting seems about ten times better. Looks a bit blockbustery-diluted though (as trailers can tend to be).

So that’s Reptile and Kabal confirmed.

Been told the guy fighting Jax is Reiko
I assume this is the door scene?

Unlikely for mine, Reiko was meant to be originally, maroon not ninja guy, then in new canon decided to be "I wanna be the Khan" guy enough that he basically could one shot D'vorah, Kotal and Jax since blood magic and khan like strength. Knelt guy is a bit pudgy when first seen;

Looks more Bo' Rai-Cho than Reiko.

Interesting focus being placed on scorpion. Kinda follows the recent animated movie:

It’s a real shame to omit Johnny Cage.I get they want to build a storyline around a character that won’t be constrained by an already established backstory, but JC is an integral part of the franchise and shouldn’t have been left out.

It's a dumb move simply because nobody gives a crap about someone called Cole Young as they don't exist in the fans minds or in the universe and they aren't going to be going to the movie to see him.

Cage is the very reason the game series exists as he was the replacement for Jean Claude Van Damme.

Yep. It was all designed to be a game modelled off Bloodsport. Not to mention Raiden and Shang Tsung being ripped off from Big Trouble in Little China.

My only doubt is that garnering the hype of "omg best Mortal Kombat movie eva!!!" headlines is obviously a very low bar to cross, which might lead to a that'll do type attitude.
