Right off the heels from offering fans of the franchise a first look at its upcoming feature film, Warner Bros. has released the full official synopsis of Simon McQuoid‘s Mortal Kombat movie, which is currently scheduled for release in April. The film will be based on a story written by Mortal Kombat: Rebirth‘s Oren Uziel’s and Aquaman‘s James WanInto the Storm‘s Todd Garner, and Men in Black: International‘s E. Bennett Walsh will all be producing.

As for casting, Deadpool 2 and Wu Assassins‘ Lewis Tan will be portraying the main character Cole Young alongside Jessica McNamee as Sonya Blade, Josh LAwson as Kano, Tadanobu Asano as Lord Raiden, Mehcad Brooks as Jackson “Jax” Bridges, Ludi Lin as Liu Kang, Chin Han as Shang Tsung, Joe Taslim as Bi-Han and Sub-Zero, and Hiroyuki Sanada as Hanzo Hasashi and Scorpion.

The plot’s synopsis reads:

“In Mortal Kombat, MMA fighter Cole Young, accustomed to taking a beating for money, is unaware of his heritage—or why Outworld’s Emperor Shang Tsung has sent his best warrior, Sub-Zero, an otherworldly Cryomancer, to hunt Cole down. Fearing for his family’s safety, Cole goes in search of Sonya Blade at the direction of Jax, a Special Forces Major who bears the same strange dragon marking Cole was born with. Soon, he finds himself at the temple of Lord Raiden, an Elder God and the protector of Earthrealm, who grants sanctuary to those who bear the mark. Here, Cole trains with experienced warriors Liu Kang, Kung Lao and rogue mercenary Kano, as he prepares to stand with Earth’s greatest champions against the enemies of Outworld in a high stakes battle for the universe. But will Cole be pushed hard enough to unlock his arcana—the immense power from within his soul—in time to save not only his family, but to stop Outworld once and for all?”

Mortal Kombat will arrive to theaters and HBO Max April 16.

Elsewhere in entertainment, Dwayne Johnson has debuted the first trailer for his biographical sitcom Young Rock.
