The Mortal Kombat Movie Trailer | Things Only True Fans Noticed

Film adaptations of video games are, more often than not, unsuccessful, but there’s hope on the horizon. Here’s a rundown of the new Mortal Kombat trailer, and the small details that may have slipped past you in the midst of its ultra-violent glory.

Right off the bat, the trailer for 2021’s Mortal Kombat gives audiences a good look at one of the property’s most prolific and popular entities: Sub-Zero, portrayed here by Joe Taslim. Throughout the trailer’s runtime, Sub-Zero gives everyone a bad day. Naturally, during his rampage, Sub-Zero utilizes his Cryomancer abilities — freezing his opponents and using ice-based weaponry against them. He even creates an ice wall, which gamers can perform when they play as Sub-Zero in Mortal Kombat 11.

One interesting thing to note about this particular Sub-Zero incarnation is that his real name is Bi-Han, a fact that director Simon McQuoid revealed in his trailer breakdown for IGN. For longtime players of the Mortal Kombat video games, the name “Bi-Han” should ring some bells: He was the first to take on the Sub-Zero mantle.

Bi-Han appeared under the frosty alias only in the first Mortal Kombat game, where he quickly met his demise and granted his younger brother Kuai Liang the chance to follow in his footsteps. However, Bi-Han eventually rose from the grave as the villainous wraith Noob Saibot and continues to wreak havoc under this dark persona to this day.
