Mortal Kombat: The song has been officially released in the recent trailer for the forthcoming Mortal Kombat movie. Offering fans their latest connection to the highly anticipated adaptation. It has been over twenty-five years since the gore-filled fighting game was first brought to the big screen. And inside the Mortal Kombat series, much has changed since then.
The Mortal Kombat video game series was still very successful back in 1995. But with just four installments to its credit, considerable space for improvement remained. As the years progressed, not only did the series of Ed Boon and John Tobias grow. But they also added new characters that would become synonymous with the franchise. There is enough evidence to argue today that a feature film adaptation came just too early in the lifespan of the game.
Though a box office success, it’s the techno theme song. Which was peppered with audio samples from the film. It was one of the few memorable aspects of the original Mortal Kombat movie. The new film set to be released this coming April. Fans hope that the excitement (and gore) of the game will be captured on screen this time around. It’s still too early to know what’s in store for viewers for certain. But the first official trailer has painted a good picture of the possibilities awaiting.
Now, thanks to Pusher Music’s official YouTube channel. The main song from the Mortal Kombat trailer is open to the public. VWLS ‘”Emergence” is perhaps the ideal track for a film of this nature with its brooding strength and victorious highs. Offering a kind of calm before the storm that is sure to entail more than a few gruesome fights. The entire track can be listened to below, though the soundtrack is not yet available for purchase at this stage.

Music is often an integral component of any film, although audiences sometimes forget this. In the case of Mortal Kombat, “Emergence” has already managed to catch the attention of more than a few people. And the introduction of the track on a site like YouTube will ensure that its popularity continues to expand. In the weeks and months leading up to the film’s release. Hopefully, the actual film would be more entertaining than its music this time around. But if what’s on show in the first official Mortal Kombat trailer is any indicator. There’s going to be a lot to dive into for viewers.
It is definitely not an easy job to adapt a game like Mortal Kombat into a feature film. And the possibility of absolutely satisfying its broad variety of fans is certainly unlikely. But this judgment in no way indicates that the new film can’t be a success both critically and financially. Since the first Mortal Kombat film, enough time has passed. To learn some valuable lessons about what does and doesn’t work. It looks like this new adaptation will have its finger on the pulse of why people enjoy this series so much. And how important a quality adaptation is to them.
