We know there’ll be bonus characters like Jason Voorhees and Predator, but this new storyline trailer indicates that those guys might just be big ol’ softies compared to the newly evil Kung Lao and Liu Kang. Russian subtitles only help to prove that Sting’s old line about “sharing the same biology” has a totally different meaning in this context – no longer a plea for peace through similarity, but death through targeting of the same vulnerabilities.
Such an Outworldly kill to do, if the Russians love their Kombat too. And there’s a great return at the end….
Luke Y. Thompson has been writing professionally about movies and pop-culture since 1999, and has also been an actor in some extremely cheap culty and horror movies you will probably never hear much about (he is nonetheless mostly proud of them, as he met his wife on one). As editor of The Robot's Voice since 2012, he can take the blame for the majority of the site's content, all of which he creates because he loves you very, very much. (Although he loves nachos more. Sorry.)
Prior to TRV, Luke wrote for publications that include the New Times LA, Los Angeles CityBeat, E! Online, OC Weekly, Geekweek, GeekChicDaily, The L.A. Times, The Village Voice, LA Weekly, and Nerdist
