From New Line Cinema comes the explosive new cinematic adventure “Mortal Kombat,” inspired by the blockbuster video game franchise, which most recently enjoyed the most successful video game launch in its history, Mortal Kombat 11. The film is helmed by award-winning Australian commercial filmmaker Simon McQuoid, marking his feature directorial debut, and produced by James Wan (“The Conjuring” universe films, “Aquaman,”), Todd Garner (“Into the Storm,” “Tag”), McQuoid and E. Bennett Walsh (“Men in Black: International,” “The Amazing Spider-Man 2”).
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?
The diverse international cast reflects the global nature of the brand, with talent spanning the worlds of film, television and martial arts. The ensemble includes Lewis Tan (“Deadpool 2,” Netflix’s “Wu Assassins”) as Cole Young; Jessica McNamee (“The Meg”) as Sonya Blade; Josh Lawson (“Bombshell”) as Kano; Tadanobu Asano (“Midway”) as Lord Raiden; Mehcad Brooks (TV’s “Supergirl”) as Jackson “Jax” Bridges; Ludi Lin (“Aquaman”) as Liu Kang; with Chin Han (“Skyscraper”) as Shang Tsung; Joe Taslim (“Star Trek Beyond”) as Bi-Han and Sub-Zero; and Hiroyuki Sanada (“Skyscraper”) as Hanzo Hasashi and Scorpion. Also featured are Max Huang as Kung Lao; Sisi Stringer as Mileena; Matilda Kimber as Emily Young; and Laura Brent as Allison Young.
McQuoid directed from a screenplay by Greg Russo and Dave Callaham (“Wonder Woman 1984”), from a story by Oren Uziel (“Mortal Kombat: Rebirth”) and Russo, based on the videogame created by Ed Boon and John Tobias. Richard Brener, Dave Neustadter, Victoria Palmeri, Michael Clear, Jeremy Stein and Larry Kasanoff served as executive producers.
Bringing the hugely popular property to the big screen, McQuoid led a team of Australian and U.S. filmmakers, including director of photography Germain McMicking (“True Detective,” “Top of the Lake: China Girl”), production designer Naaman Marshall (“Underwater,” “Servant”), editors Dan Lebental (“Spider-Man: Far From Home”) and Scott Gray (“Top of the Lake,” “Daffodils”), visual effect supervisor Chris Godfrey (“Hacksaw Ridge”) and costume designer Cappi Ireland (“Lion,” “The Rover”). The music is by Benjamin Wallfisch (“Blade Runner 2049,” the “IT” films).

The nominations are out for the 72nd Emmy Awards, which will be presented Sept. 20 with Jimmy Kimmel serving as host.
Who got the love? Who got the snub?
All of those questions were answered Tuesday when the nominees for this year’s best of television were unveiled.
As one cutdown day passed, the toughest cut of all loomed large over the surviving candidates – which one will be the ultimate winner when the envelopes are finally opened on Emmy night?
Let’s look at some of the favorites and other contenders to consider, with BetOnline sportsbook providing the current odds.
Outstanding Comedy Series
Favorite: Schitt’s Creek (-125)
The critically acclaimed Canadian series wrapped up its sixth and final season, as the viewing audience said farewell to the Rose family. Schitt’s Creek drew 15 nominations.
Last year Schitt’s Creek was nominated for four awards, including Best Comedy Series and acting nods for Catherine O’Hara and Eugene Levy, but didn’t win in any category.
Value Bet: The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel (+125)
The clever, innovative comedy about housewife-turned-comic Midge Maisel has been nominated in each of the past two years, winning in 2018. This year, they deserve a better fate but how do you beat an iconic show that’s bidding adieu?
Outstanding Drama Series
Favorite: Succession (-150)
Now that Game Of Thrones has gone to the vat of reruns, is this appropriately-named series the heir to the Thrones throne as best TV drama? Succession garnered a total of 18 nominations, including its second straight Outstanding Drama Series nod.
Value Bet: Ozark (+200)
The gritty American crime drama will be hard-pressed to beat Succession for the Emmy, though. However, next year, Ozark can play the Schitt’s Creek card. Netflix recently announced that Season 4 will be the last for the show.
Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series
Favorite: Eugene Levy (-500)
It’s all coming up roses for Johnny Rose. The patriarch of Schitt’s Creek is going to go out on top and win his first Emmy.
Value Bet: Ted Danson (+300)
Danson won this award twice for his portrayal of Sam “MayDay” Malone on Cheers but he won’t need to find room in the trophy case this year.
Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series
Favorite: Brian Cox (-250)
Cox has already received a Golden Globe for Best Actor – Television Series Drama for his portrayal of Logan Roy, founder of media and entertainment conglomerate Waystar Royco on HBO’s Succession. This year, he gets an Emmy to go with it.
Value Bet: Billy Porter (+1200)
Porter won this award last year for his portrayal of Pray Tell on the FX Series Pose. He was the first openly gay Black actor to win Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series.
Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series
Catherine O’Hara seeks to win her first Emmy. Photo by: Jeremy Avenaim (Wikimedia).
Favorite: Catherine O’Hara (-350)
It should be a clean sweep for the SCTV alums from Schitt’s Creek. O’Hara’s portrayal of Moira Rose is as brilliant as it is over the top.
Value Bet: Rachel Brosnahan (+250)
Broshnahan won this category in 2018 for her role as Midge Maisel. She’d be a worthy winner again this year but O’Hara is destined to go out a champion.
Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series
Favorite: Laura Linney (-175)
Linney is a four-time Emmy winner, although she’s never won in this category. This is her second nomination in a row for her work as Wendy Byrde on Ozark.
Value Bet: Olivia Colman (+300)
Colman won an Oscar for her role as Anne, Queen of Great Britain in the 2018 film The Favourite. She’s up for the Emmy for her role as Queen Elizabeth in The Crown, for which she’s already won the Golden Globe Award for Best Actress – Television Series.
Anyone else sensing kismet here?
Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series
Favorite: Tony Shaloub (-600)
Is there anything that Shaloub touches that doesn’t turn golden? He was nominated as Abe Weissman from The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel in 2018 and won the award in 2019.
Value Bet: Andre Braugher (+3300)
The 1998 winner of the Best Actor Emmy in a drama for his work as a serious cop on Homicide: Life On The Street, Braugher is nominated for the fourth time for his work as a comedic cop on Brooklyn Nine-Nine.
Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series
Favorite: Billy Crudup (+125)
The closest call of any category, Crudup is up for his role as backstabbing TV producer Cory Ellison on The Morning Show.
Value Bet: Kieran Culkin (+125)
Roman Roy on Succession, Culkin is nominated for his first Emmy. His portrayal has also earned him two Golden Globe nominations.
Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series
Favorite: Alex Borstein (-700)
Borstein has won this two years in succession and it’ll be her personal property for as long as she chooses to portray Susie Myerson, Midge Maisel’s caustic manager. There’s no value in betting anyone else.
Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series
Favorite: Helena Bonham Carter (-600)
Bonham Carter is one of those actresses who dominates the screen no matter her role. Her work as Princess Margaret in The Crown is the latest example of this trend.
Value Bet: Laura Dern (+800)
There’s two past winners nominated in Julia Garner and Thandie Newton. But Dern’s already won the Emmy for her role on Big Little Lies as the Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Limited Series or Television Movie.
