Interview: Lewis Tan & Mehcad Brooks Talk ‘Mortal Kombat’ (2021)
Mortal Kombat is almost here!
Last week, I had the chance to sit down with some of the talent from the upcoming movie. In this first interview, we sat down with Lewis Tan and Mehcad Brooks who are no strangers to the GoC family.
During our chat, we spoke about Tan playing a new character within the franchise and what it was like for Brooks to step into the shoes of Jax Briggs. The two also talked about how physically demanding this movie was and their hopes to do more!
Check out the interview below:
Mortal Kombat Official Synopsis
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?
