The Hollywood blockbuster Mortal Kombat, which was filmed in South Australia throughout 2019, had released its trailer and IT. LOOKS. EPIC!
The film is an adaptation of the super-popular video game Mortal Kombat, bringing to life superheroes, epic fight scenes, and some incredible landscapes *cough* South Australia *cough*.

The trailer was released this morning and it is just as epic as the video game. MMA fighter Cole Young (Lewis Tan) bans together Earth’s greatest champions to fight enemies of Outworld to save the world.
The film is the biggest production in SA’s history with hundreds of SA people working on the set and as extras. Australian’s Josh Lawson (Kano) and Jessica McNamee (Sonya Blade) both feature in the film. In true Aussie fashion, Josh Lawson drops the famous quote “You ******* beauty.”
The film stars Lewis Tan as Cole Young and Aussies Josh Lawson as Kano and Jessica McNamee as Sonya Blade. Tadanobu Asano, Mehcad Brooks, Joe Taslim and Ludi Lin also star.
You may notice some sights of SA as the filming took place in Leigh Creek, Coober Pedy, the Mt Lofty Ranges, Port Adelaide and the CBD.
The film will hit cinemas on April 16.
