Warner Bros reaches pretty deep into Mortal Kombat lore for the latest Legends film. Snow Blind stars Kenshi, and a cadre of sinister Black Dragon.
MK has a deep bench
If you know anything about Mortal Kombat, then you know that NetherRealm’s series of fighting games has a pretty massive roster. If you lump all of the guys and gals that we’ve seen recently, together with the kinda/sorta retired kombatants, you’ve got a collection of lore that could compete with almost any other property.
MK’s characters include gods, demons, cyborgs, monsters, martial artists, and even cops. And that’s not even factoring in all the guest stars, not that they’re really all that revenant in this piece of news.
That’s because the newest Mortal Kombat Legends movie has been revealed, and it’s oozing with klassic MK lore. In stark contrast with previous entries too, this film goes pretty deep into the MK universe. Snow Blind brings in the seldom-seen Black Dragons, a super teched-up Kano, fan favorite Kenshi, and maybe a little Sub-Zero too.
Inspired by the worldwide video game sensation now celebrating its 30th anniversary, Mortal Kombat Legends: Snow Blind finds vicious, power-mad Kano determined to take over Earthrealm, one soul at a time. Assisted by a trio of cold Black Dragon mercenaries, he embarks on a brutal assault from town to defenseless town. The choice is simple: Kneel or be annihilated. But when the cocky and talented but undisciplined Kenshi doesn’t take a knee, Kano and his clan destroy the young warrior, taking his eyesight and his confidence. Under the tutelage of reluctant, retired Kuai Liang, the only one powerful enough to challenge the malevolent Kano, Kenshi finds renewed hope and a clear path to redemption. But will it be enough to stop Kano from decimating all of Earthrealm?Warner Bros press release
Mortal Kombat Legends: Snow Blind arrives first for digital format on October 9th, before hitting 4K Ultra HD Combo Pack and Blu-ray on October 11th.
