Mortal Kombat Legends: Scorpion’s Revenge Will be Getting a Red Band Trailer Soon Enough

Mortal Kombat Legends: Scorpion’s Revenge Will be Getting a Red Band Trailer Soon Enough

Fears that the upcoming animated film Mortal Kombat Legends: Scorpion's Revenge wouldn't contain enough brutality seem to have been overstated.

If you were worried that the upcoming animated movie Mortal Kombat Legends: Scorpion’s Revenge wouldn’t be as violent as the video game series that it’s based on, you can probably quell those concerns.

Earlier this week, Warner Bros. released the first trailer for Mortal Kombat Legends: Scorpion’s Revenge and one of the main criticisms from many fans was that the movie didn’t look violent enough. However, this trailer was clearly made with all audiences in mind and didn’t show some of the more brutal sequences that may appear in the movie.

When announcing its plans for Final Kombat this week, a Mortal Kombat 11 tournament that is slated to take place in early March, it was unveiled that the event will also feature the first red band trailer for Scorpion’s Revenge. If you don’t know what a red band trailer is, essentially, it’s a trailer that is allowed to show some of the more R-rated aspects that could be involved with a movie. This means that violence, swearing, and anything else that might not be able to be shown in a general audience trailer can be shown in the red band version. So if I had to wager a guess, the next trailer we see for Mortal Kombat Legends could be much more brutal.

In addition to hosting a tournament and releasing this new trailer, Final Kombat will also be the location in which Spawn’s first gameplay trailer for Mortal Kombat 11 will also be revealed. Spawn creator Todd McFarlane and the voice of the character, Keith David, will also be present at the event alongside NetherRealm’s Ed Boon to show off just how the iconic comic book character will look in-game.

If you’re looking to play some Mortal Kombat, the latest edition in the series, MK11, is available now on PS4, Xbox One, PC, Switch, and Stadia. Meanwhile, you can check out the initial trailer for Mortal Kombat Legends: Scorpion’s Revenge down below.
