The new film adaptation of the popular fighting game series Mortal Kombat will be adding even more characters to its roster. Following the castings of Joe Taslim (The Raid) as cryomancer ninja Sub-Zero, Ludi Lin (Black Mirror) as the Shaolin warrior Liu Kang, Mehcad Brooks (Supergirl) as the steel-armed Jax, Tadanobu Asano (Thor: Ragnarok) as the thunder god Raiden, and Sisi Stringer as the deadly Mileena, comes some new players.
According to new reports, Chin Han (The Dark Knight), Hiroyuki Sanada (The Wolverine, Avengers: Endgame), Jessica McNamee (The Meg), Josh Lawson (Superstore), and Lewis Tan (Deadpool 2) will all be playing fighters who join the deadly tournament. More on who they will play below.
The first casting for the latest Mortal Kombat movie has been revealed. It’s being reported that Joe Taslim has landed a role in the movie, with the actor set to play Sub-Zero.
Taslim broke out with a role in the 2011 Indonesian cult action hit The Raid: Redemption. Since then, he’s had roles in Fast & Furious 6, Star Trek Beyond, The Night Comes for Us, and the Cinemax series Warrior.
There are only a few more days left until the release of Star Trek Beyond, and Paramount is pulling out all the stops to make sure that you go and see this film. If we are to base our reactions from critics who’ve already saw it last week, Beyond looks to be an improvement if not the best film of the franchise since it got rebooted back in 2009. But just in case you still aren’t sure whether or not to see it, the studio has released one final short trailer that puts an emphasis on how much fun you will have.
Paramount will be releasing Star Trek Beyond in just a few weeks, and there is much anticipation surrounding the film. Part of that is sadly contributed due to the tragic passing of Anton Yelchin, but the other – which in no way should overshadow the loss of the actor – is the fact that the film will officially introduce a major character as a gay father.
During the film’s overseas press tour, it has been revealed that Sulu, played by John Cho, will be gay and he and his partner have a daughter together. More on the story below.
