January 27, 2021 Off By tracy
Warner Bros. has released a sizzle reel of its upcoming movie releases, which includes new snippets of Mortal Kombat and The Suicide Squad, among others.The reel, showing off the movies that will arrive in theaters and on HBO Max on the same day, includes several shots of Mortal Kombat, including new looks at an unmasked Scorpion sword fighting with masked attackers, and Sonya Blade pointing to the words “Motal Kombat” on a picture and saying, “It’s an invitation to Mortal Kombat” (just in case you didn’t understand what the movie was called, I guess).

As for The Suicide Squad, we see a familiar rainy long shot of the titular squad, set to the words, “So this is the famous Suicide Squad” (also just in case you didn’t guess), as well as Idris Elba’s Bloodsport saying, “no one likes a show-off”, to which John Cena’s Peacemaker replies, “Unless what they’re showing off is dope as f-“, before being cut off. We also see a split-second of Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn escaping a collapsing building.

The reel comprises a huge list of movies coming from Warner Bros. and HBO Max: The Little Things, Judas and the Black Messiah, Tom & Jerry the Movie, Godzilla vs. Kong, Mortal Kombat, Those Who Wish Me Dead, The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It, In the Heights, The Suicide Squad, Reminiscence, Cry Macho, King Richard, Space Jam: A New Legacy, Malignant, The Many Saints of Newark, Dune, and the untitled Matrix 4 (no footage of that one, I’m afraid).

The Suicide Squad Who’s Who: Full Cast and Character Reveals

Mortal Kombat will arrive on April 16, and we recently got new images and details, including a mention of the fatalities. The reboot includes Mehcad Brooks as Jackson “Jax” Briggs, Chin Han as Shang Tsung, Hiroyuki Sanada as Scorpion, Joe Taslim as Sub-Zero, Tadanobu Asano as Raiden, Ludi Lin as Liu Kang, Sisi Stringer as Mileena, Josh Lawson as Kano, Jessica McNamee as Sonya Blade, Max Huang as Lung Lao Max, and Lewis Tan as an all-new character.

The Suicide Squad, from director James Gunn, is described as a gritty war movie, and has a truly bonkers cast, from Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, to John Cena as Peacemaker, to Idris Elba as Bloodsport, to Sylvester Stallone and Taika Waititi. It will arrive on August 6.

Warner Bros.’ decision to release its movies in theaters and streaming has been highly controversial, with director Christopher Nolan saying “they don’t understand what they’re losing”.
