Man: Fighting? No, no, Cole. (laughs) Fighting requires both attacking and defending, not just throwing punches. You should try it sometime. Now don’t get sensitive. You fight Ramirez. He’s, uh…Yeah. He’s experienced, fast, a good fighter. Who’s your cornerman? (chuckling) You’re fucking serious?

Cole: You don’t like it, find someone else who’ll do this in an hour’s notice for $200

OUTWORLD

Shang: The prophecy is upon us which means we could lose the tenth tournament

Bi-Han: There is no prophecy. Hanzō is a ghost. I killed him centuries ago

Shang: Winning Mortal Kombat cannot be left to chance. There will be no tournament because there’ll be no opposition left to fight. We will already be victorious. Go now and kill Earthrealm’s champions...Bi-Han

Bi-Han: I am no longer Bi-Han. I am Sub-Zero

[grunting softly]

Emily: It’s a string bracelet

[groans]

Cole: Just made this?

Emily: Yeah

Cole: That’s pretty cool.

Emily: You want me to put it on?

Cole: (winces) My hand

Emily: Now, we got one each. You’re sure you’re okay?

Cole: Yeah. I guess I should have thrown the uppercut, huh?

Jax: Cole Young. The man that took the belt from Eddie Tobias

Cole: Yeah, that was a long time ago. Have me met?

Jax: No. Name’s Jax

Cole: Nice to meet you, Jax. Could’ve won today. Had you controlled the cage

Emily: Told you so

Jax: (laughs) She’s smart

Cole: All right. Well, time to go eat, yeah?

Jax: One more thing, champ. That dragon logo you got, I dig that, man. It’s unique. Where’d you get it from?

Emily: He was born with it

Jax: What do you mean?

Emily: It’s a birthmark

Jax: You serious?

Emily: Pretty cool. Show him

Jax: Well, ain’t that something

Cole: Nice chatting with you

Jax: See you around, champ

Scene 25

Allison: Hey

Emily: Hi, Mom

Allison: Still in one piece. How’d it go?

Emily: He was this close to beating him

Allison: This close?

Cole: Close

Allison: You sure you’re okay?

Cole: Standing

Allison: Let’s go order

Cole: Yeah

Allison: Go, go, go!

[crowd clamoring]

[tires screeching]

[gasps]

[tires screeching]

Jax: Blade, I got him. I’ll see you at base at 2300

Cole: What the fuck is that thing?

Jax: Funny, that didn’t sound much like, "Thanks for saving my ass". Whatever that was back there, it’s after both of us. Look

Cole: That’s...That’s impossible

Jax: It’s not a birthmark, Cole. Means you’ve been chosen

Cole: Chosen? For what?

Jax: To fight

Cole: You got the wrong person, all right? I’m not the fighter that I used to be, okay

Jax: No, shit. But they don’t have the marking. So, like it or not Cole, you’re the guy. As long as you got that marking they’re coming for you. And they will kill whoever they have to to get to you

[crackling]

Jax: Take the truck. Get your family to safety

Allison: Cole

Scene 29

Jax: You need to get to Gary, Indiana. Find Sonya Blade. 806 West Washington Boulevard

Cole: Are you sure? We can take him out together

Jax: You want your family on a fucking slab in the morgue? Now get out of here

Scene 30

Cole: Hold on tight, guys

Scene 31

Jax: So, you wanna play hide and seek?

Scene 32

[gasps]

[Jax groans]

[gasping]

[crashing]

Scene 33

Cole: She’s finally asleep.

[Allison sighs]

Cole: I should go. You’ll be safe here, Ally. You heard what Jax said. That thing is hunting people with the marking. It’s after me. And if I stay here and it shows up, it could kill us all. I’m not gonna let that happen

Allison: Jax could have killed it

Cole: We have to be sure. The name he gave me. Sonya Blade. Hopefully, she’ll have some answers

Scene 34

Mileena: Master. Sub-Zero tracked and killed another one of Earth’s champions. But another has escaped

Shang: Have our assassins double the efforts

Mileena: What of Lord Raiden? If he discovers we’re breaking rules set in stone by the Elder Gods…

Shang: Leave the Elder Gods to me. We didn’t win nine straight tournaments by following the rules. Mileena, let’s finish this. Send in the reptilian Syzoth

Scene 35

[both grunting]

Sonya: What you doing here?

Cole: Wait. I’m looking for Sonya Blade. Jax sent me

Sonya: Where is it?

Cole: Where’s what?

Sonya: The marking

[panting]

Sonya: I’m Sonya. Jax hasn’t checked in. Where is he?

Cole: He stayed behind to fight

Scene 36

Sonya: Close the door

[door closes]

Sonya: Jax, where are you?

[typing]

Sonya: Come on

Cole: You guys in military?

Sonya: Special forces

Cole: Holy…What is this?

Sonya: We needed a safe place to run our operation

Cole: Well, this looks, uh, pretty safe. Looks like you’re ready for anything

Sonya: This is where we keep all we’ve learned about the dragon markings. First learned about this seven years ago. Jax and I were on a mission in Brazil to capture a wanted fugitive. When we got there, the target had superhuman abilities. Tore through our unit in seconds. The target had the same marking you do, Cole. When Jax finally took it down the dragon marking transferred directly onto his skin. I've spent years trying to figure out what it all means. Seems that throughout history, different cultures all over the world, they reference a great tournament. But my research shows that there’s realms and species that we didn’t even know existed. That dragon marking, it signifies that you’ve been chosen to fight for Earth. It’s an invitation to fight for something known as Mortal Kombat

Cole: Did you make that last part up? (chuckles) It just kind of sounds like you made it up. And look, they spelled it wrong

Sonya: Hey, you listen to me. I think there’s another tournament coming. That’s why you’re here. That is why Jax and I have been tracking you. Because we need to find every last champion before it’s too late. And FYI, most of them are dead already. There’s more to this, Cole. I know it. And I swear to God, I’m gonna get to the bottom of it

[gasps]

Kano: I hate to interrupt your bullshit, blondie. Well, I gotta piss again

Cole: What is this? You have a visitor?

Sonya: Careful. He bites

[grunts]

Kano: Oh, hello, sunshine

Cole: Who are you?

Sonya: That's Kano

Cole: Kano? Kano what?

Kano: Kano None-of your-fuckin'-business!

Cole: Was that Russian?

Kano: Do I sound Russian to you, you fuckin' idiot?

Sonya: He’s a mercenary with The Black Dragon clan. Arms dealer, drug runner, murder-for-hire, scum of the Earth

Kano: I also give really good foot massages

Cole: You have a marking

Kano: Actually, that’s kind of a funny story. You want to tell him?

Sonya: I was tracking another champion. I was lucky enough to find Kano here instead right after he slit the guy’s throat

Kano: Yeah, well, next time be more punctual

Sonya: You were never chosen. Fate has better standards than you

Kano: Lucky for you I don’t have any standards. Let's see if you’re a natural blonde. (laughs)

[Kano grunts]

Kano: Not bad. (spits) Almost felt that one. (grunts)

Cole: What about you? Where’s your marking?

Sonya: I don’t have one

[Kano mimics sad trombone]

[clatters]

Kano: Come on! Hey, hey, new guy. New guy. Get me out of here. I could help you

Cole: Just sit tight

Kano: I was about to go for a stroll, but maybe I’ll stick around, you fucking idiot!

[low growling]

[yells]

[neck snaps]

[Kano yells]

Kano: Fuck!

[Sonya grunts]

[groans]

Kano: What the fuck was that? That was my knife, too! Fucking poetry

Cole: Where is it? Where?

Sonya: Shh!

Cole: Did you shoot it?

Sonya: I think I clipped it

[yells]

[creature growling]

[groaning]

Cole: Sonya! Are you okay?

Sonya: Yeah

Kano: Come on. All right. I’m outta here

[grunts]

[grunting]

Cole: Kano! Use the flare!

[grunts]

[creature screeches]

Kano: There you are.

[grunting]

[creature growling]

[screeches]

[all grunting]

[grunts]

[choking]

Sonya: Knife

[Sonya yells]

[creature snarls]

[yelling]

[creature screeching]

Kano: Kano wins. (chuckles)

[laughs]

Kano: You fuckin' beauty

Scene 37

Sonya: Fucking A. Years of research just destroyed. So do you believe me now?

Cole: Yeah. What’s the plan?

Sonya: (sighs) There is none

Scene 38

Sonya: Oh...Make yourself at home

Kano: Yeah, I have. Oh, by the way, you beer’s shit, and you’re almost out of it

Cole: What are you doing?

Kano: Just working on a Kano graphic novel. I fancy myself a bit of an artist

Cole: He’s a psychopath

Kano: Well, all the best artists are a little twisted, mate

[sighs]

Kano: Well, I’m off! You’re trying to get to Raiden’s temple, aren’t you? That should be fun

Sonya: You know where that is?

Cole: What’s Raiden’s temple?

Kano: Yeah, I used to run guns through there. Locals wouldn’t shut the fuck up about it

Sonya: Legends says champions used to train there for Mortal Kombat

Kano: Ah, for fuck's sake...

Sonya: No one knows where it is

Kano: Well, they do now. Excuse me

Sonya: Where is it?

Kano: Uh, you got a pen? You want to write this down? "Get fucked". As if I’m gonna help you. You kidnapped me. You tied me up. You threw a knife through my fucking leg on purpose! And then, that lizard thing took off half of my face

-Yeah

Kano: Lucky for me, you can hardly notice it. So, yeah, it’s a hard pass for me on the "helping you" thing. Now, get out of me fucking way

Sonya: Okay

Kano: There you go

Scene 39

[bottle shatters]

Sonya: Everyone’s got a price. Name yours

Kano: You can’t afford me

Sonya: Two million

[laughs]

Kano: That’s good. You live in this shithole, and you got two million dollars? Pig’s arse

Sonya: I have lived here my whole life, you piece of shit. You watch your mouth. Two million dollars. Yeah. Nah, fuck ya

Kano: Fuck it. Three million. That’s my final offer. And anything I find inside that temple I keep! No fucking splitsies! Plus, if you’re bullshitting me, I’ll fucking kill ya. It's no skin off my sack

Sonya: Great! Sounds like we got a deal

Kano: (clicks tongue) I was gonna head there anyway. Ya fuckin' idiot!

[Kano laughs]

Sonya: How you planning on getting us there?

Kano: Oh, I got a friend with a plane

Cole: You got friends?

Kano: Hey, fuck you, pretty boy. I’m a popular guy. Everyone loves me

[hocking]

[spits]

[clangs]

Kano: Whoo! (clicks tongue) Ah, bloody garden gnomes. They give me the creeps

Scene 40

Cole: You’re gonna give that guy three million dollars?

Sonya: Fuck no. I live in this shithole. You think I got three million dollars?

Scene 41

[adventurous music playing]

Scorpion: (voice) Unleash me...

[gasps]

Scene 42

Kano: There I was, trying to shove this guy’s nuts down his throat. And all I kept thinking about was what should I get for me mum for Christmas

-Your mum’s been dead for 30 fucking years, mate

Kano: Kid can dream, can’t he?

Scene 43

Sonya: Hey! You were out of it. You okay?

Cole: Yeah

Scene 44

Kano: All right. Thank you for flying Air Kano. I know you had fuck all choices. Tray tables up. Time to jump out of this shitbox

Sonya: (to Cole) Come on. Let’s go. First time?

Cole: Yeah, what gave it away?

Sonya: You’ll be okay. You just gotta jump, count to three, and pull this guy

Cole: All right, simple. But how do we know when to...

Kano: We don't got all day, princess. What?

Sonya: You’re fucking kidding me

Scene 45

Sonya: So, how close are we?

Kano: It's 27, 28 Ks

Sonya: What?

Kano: Maybe 30, to be safe. Let's round up to 32, eh? We say 35, there’ll be no surprises. Ah, shit...Fuck this. I need a break

[groans]

Cole: You just took a break. Too many beers, huh? Give me that GPS. I’m taking point

Kano: Uh-uh. Let’s look at the score board, shall we? I got us the plane. I know how to find your precious little mountain retreat, or whatever it is. I killed the lizard man, huh? Any of you rip anyone’s heart out? Hey! (laughs) I think I know what’s going on here. Are you jealous, girly? Of me little marking? Hey! I’m talking to you. If you want it so much, all you've gotta do is kill me and take it. Ah, come on, what do you say? You want to dance?

Sonya: It’s your blood

Kano: Attagirl. Hmm

[both grunting]

[dramatic music plays]

Kano: Go on, then. Take it. You’re so close. Just take it. Take it!

Sonya: Nah

Kano: Yeah, that’s why you don’t have one of these. 'Cause you don’t have the mongrel in ya!

[Kano laughs]

Cole: You good?

Scene 46

[dramatic music playing]

Liu: At last

Scene 47

Kano: Okay, that’s far enough, MC Hammer

[Kano grunts]

Liu: I’m not your enemy. I’m Liu Kang from the Shaolin Order of Light

Sonya: You’re one of the champions

Liu: Yes. From Earthrealm. Finally, you have come to seek out Raiden’s Temple

Kano: (tutting) Fuck the Temple. Wait…You just shot a fireball outta your hand. How’d you do that? Hang on. Hang the fuck on. Does that mean I’m gonna get superpowers at any point? It does, doesn’t it?

Liu: There’s much to learn

Kano: The fuck?

Liu: But not here. Follow me

Scene 48

Sonya: Ugh

Scene 49

Kano: Hey, David Copperfield, hang on, just teach me how you do it

Scene 50

[uplifting music playing]

Liu: There it is. What you’ve been searching for

[chuckles softly]

Scene 51

Liu: It wasn’t always like this. For thousands of years, this temple was a holy place of worship. It is essential that we begin your training for the next tournament

Cole: This doesn’t feel like a tournament. So far, it feels like an ambush

Liu: We don’t have much time. We will not see another full moon before the tournament begins

Scene 52

Liu: Come, come. Through here

Scene 53

Kano: Now, what? You’re gonna make a door appear out of nowhere? (chuckles)

[rumbles]

Kano: Ah

[chuckles]

Kano: I’ll give you that. It’s pretty good

Sonya: Wow. I knew it. It’s all real. These murals are the living history of Mortal Kombat

[chuckles]

Kano: Now, this one really speaks to me

Sonya: This is Outworld

Liu: Yes. The most brutal and murderous of all the realms. Our greatest enemy

Hanzō: (voice) Bi-Han!

[Bi-Han speaking Mandarin]

Voice: Unleash me!

Scene 54

Liu: We must start training now before our mortal enemies in Outworld come for us. The fate of Earthrealm is in our hands. There are not many of us with the marking left. So, you must train harder and faster. Because if you fail to discover your inner power, you will never defeat your opponent. They will ravage everything you hold dear. There will be no mercy. You must fight without question. The dragon has swallowed many before us. Now, put that back

Kano: Put what back?

[bell ringing softly]

Scene 55

Sonya: Jax! Hey! Jax? Hey! Oh, God...

Liu: It has been my charge to gather all the champions of Earth. By the time I found Jax, I was too late

Sonya: Well, is he gonna live?

Liu: The ice, it cauterized his wounds. We have sourced every realm to find a way to heal him

Sonya: What can I do?

Liu: Be patient

[speaks Mandarin]

Liu: Give them time to do their work. We must go. He awaits

Scene 56

Liu: The great protector, Lord Raiden. My lord, I’ve gathered the remaining champions of Earth.

Raiden: This is what I have to work with? You are in no physical or mental shape to fight. You don’t even have a marking.

Kano: Oi, hang on! What about me, Gandalf? What does my fortune cookie say?

[groans]

Raiden: Powerless. Arrogant. The time has long passed. Our enemies have claimed nine straight victories. One more victory and Outworld will gain control over Earth forever. And Shang Tsung will enslave the entire human race

[Kano coughs]

Kano: Sorry, what did I miss?

[sighs]

Cole: They tried to kill my family. Help us.

Raiden: There’s nothing for you here. Only death

Cole: Well, I’m willing to die for my family

Raiden: Let’s see if you have what it takes

Scene 57

[wind blowing]

Scene 58

[grunting]

Scene 59

[grunts]

[Liu Kang groaning]

[Sub-Zero growls]

[Sub-Zero grunts]

[panting]

Liu Kang: 師兄…你來了! [Mandarin]

Translation: (My) Senior mate, you're here!
Subtitle: Welcome back, cousin

Scene 60

Shang: The time has come to end this. Take whatever trophies you desire, but their souls are mine

Raiden: Silence!

Shang: I have come to claim your world. You’re too late, Raiden

Raiden: It is forbidden to claim victory until the tournament begins

Kang: You are correct, Thunder God. But conflict outside of Mortal Kombat is not forbidden. Besides, the other gods are too lazy to stop me. I have come for your souls

Raiden: You will leave this place at once, sorcerer

Kang: These are your champions? Kill them

[grunts]

Kang: You think these tricks will protect you forever? Only a matter of time

Scene 61

Kano: All right. Just circling back on those superpowers. I think I get it now. It’s kinda like a box of chocolates. You never know what you’re gonna get. Is it gonna be fireballs? Is it gonna be lightning? Huh? Could be shit. Could be a Frisbee hat, you know? No offense, whoever you are

Kung: The name is Kung Lao, descendant of the Great Kung Lao, the Grand Champion of the Order of Light

Kano: Never heard of him

Liu: Listen carefully, your training has begun. Come

Scene 62

Liu: Your inner power comes from your arcana. A gift from the marking of the dragon. The point of your training is for you to unlock that power. Without it, defeating Outworld will be impossible. Kung Lao and I have discovered our arcana. In the fight pit, you will discover yours

[dramatic music plays]

Liu: You may enter

Kano: (chuckling) Let’s do the damn thing. I hope I get fireballs

Liu: There is no guarantee

Kano: So, Look, instead of fireballs, what else is gonna shoot out of my hands? Like knives or guns…

Sonya: Hey, do you ever shut up?

Kung: You’re welcome to stay with us, Miss Blade. But the training area is for the chosen ones only

Kano: (scoffs) Fucking whoops!

Cole: Oh, hang on. We wouldn’t be here without her. She’s one of us.

Liu: A fighter without a marking can never achieve their arcana. And a fighter without an arcana is a liability to the others

Kano: Yeah. Liability. All right, bye-bye, blondie

Scene 63

Kano: All right, guys! Little less of this, little more of this. Come on

Liu: Be still and listen

Kano: Fucking hell

Scene 64

[gasping]

Sonya: Jax. Hey. Hey, hey, hey. I’m here. Hey, buddy

[breathing heavily]

Sonya: It’s okay, it’s okay. It’s okay. You just lay down

Jax: What happened?

Scene 65

[dramatic music playing]

Liu: All you can do now is test your might. We have no time to lose. You must unlock your arcana

Scene 66

[grunting]

[exhales, inhales slowly]

[grunting]

[groans]

[coughing]

[Cole groans]

Kung: In Mortal Kombat, talent will only get you so far

[Kano clapping slowly]

Kano: Well, that was great. Really. Good stuff. You know, maybe your arcana's getting your ass kicked by a hat. Huh. (laughing)

Scene 67

[inhales deeply]

[exhales]

Kung: Fight!

Scene 68

Kano: No Harry Potter shit, all right?

[Kano grunts]

Kano: Cute. Real cute. (chuckles) I'd like to see you try that again

[Liu Kang grunts]

[groans]

Kano: Is that the only move you know, mate?

[grunts]

Kano: Ahh! Oh, fuck

[groans]

Kano: Yeah, yeah. Put a fucking shirt on, Magic Mike

Kung: It seems as though we have our work cut out for us

Kano: I was just warming up

Liu: Let me see your wound

Scene 69

Cole: (winces) Liu, how do I find my arcana?

[soft music plays]

Liu: It must come from your soul. Whatever it is that drives you

Cole: So, how did you find your arcana?

Liu: Unlike Kung Lao, I was just a worthless stray. For reasons beyond my ken, Master Bo’ Rai Cho found me half-dead in the gutter and brought me...

[winces]

Liu: To the Wu Shi Academy. There, I was given a purpose. A brother…Kung Lao. And I met Lord Raiden who Kung Lao and I have served together. Upon graduation, I was given a name of a man. He was a purveyor of rare things. Children. Orphans like me. He had a marking. So, I chose to take it from him. And in that moment, my arcana came forth

[fire whooshes]

[grunts]

Scene 70

[Cole and Kung Lao grunting]

Cole: (coughs) Fuck

Scene 71

Sonya: Come on, Major, I’ve seen better than that. Again. Again. Again

[grunts]

Sonya: Come on, you got this

Jax: God damn it! These don’t work. These are not me. I’m useless. Why even bring me here? I can’t help

[chuckles]

Sonya: My first day of training. And we had to run 20 miles. (chuckles) I thought I was gonna die. I wanted to quit. But all I ever wanted was to be accepted by you as an elite fighter. You remember what you told me? "Either you keep going and you prove to yourself that you can do this or regret it for the rest of your life"

Jax: Are you trying to tell me something, soldier?

Sonya: Get off your fucking ass, Major

[chuckles]

Scene 72

Liu: Miss Sonya. Sit, please. Here, eat

Sonya: (sighs) Thank you

Liu: Cole, how’s your arm?

Cole: Uh, it’s healing up

Liu: Eat more, heal fast. More training tomorrow

Kano: You’re fucking kidding me, aren’t you? Oh, fucking hell. Is he on our side? No, those are great, mate. They make those in men’s sizes?

[Kano laughing]

Kano: Topknot! At the end. What’s his name? Kung Pow? Pass us some fucking egg roll, would you?

[speaks Mandarin]

Kano: Your ears painted on, mate? Egg roll. There you go. Good boy

[Jax and Sonya chuckle]

Kung: Maybe you should lay off the egg rolls, seeing how you wouldn’t be ready to fight if you had 100 days to train

[Jax and Sonya chuckle]

Kung: I’ll dumb it down for you. Fat lazy pig

Kano: What did you say?

Kung: Terrible fighter. Zero skill

Kano: You got a death wish, mate?

Kung: Combat takes intelligence. But you…you’re like a dog. A dog who fails his training classes

Kano: Well, how about I take that stupid fucking sombrero you’re wearing, shove it so far up your ass, you start speaking Spanish? How does that sound?

Kung: You can try

Kano: I just fucking might!

Liu: Let me ask you this. Why would you jeopardize the goodwill of the only chance of your survival?

Kano: Princess, why don’t you try being one of them silent monks?

Liu: No, no, you misunderstand. He is here to save you because you cannot save yourself

Kano: Oh, fuck, here we go

Liu: You’re like an aggressive little bunny. Soft and useless

[Sonya chuckles]

Liu: Angry, mentally, physically. You should be on your knees before this man

Kano: I got a better idea. How about you two get on your knees and take turns sucking my sack?

[chopsticks clatter]

Kano: Do you have any fucking idea who you’re talking to? I’m wanted in over 35 countries for shit you fuckin' ballerinas couldn’t even imagine

Liu: You’re angry

Kano: Oh, fuckin' nothing gets by you, does it?

Liu: Good. You should be

Kung: You failure

Kano: "Failure"? Fuckin' "failure"? Let me educate you, motherfucker. I’m Kano! Of the Black fuckin' Dragon! And who are you two, huh? You’re some fuckin' cave-dwelling hippie twirlin' his anal beads taking orders from this Wu Shu wanker who wears a hubcap as a helmet. Now sit down, shut up and pass me a fuckin' egg roll!

[grunts]

[gasps]

Kano: That was it, wasn’t it? You all saw that?

[Kano laughing]

Kano: A laser beam! It’s better than fireballs, ya pussy!

[Kano laughing]

Kano: Come on, Kano! I knew I’d get mine first

[sighs]

Scene 73

[dramatic music playing]

Liu: We are running out of time, Cole. Focus on what you can’t deny. Find the truth in you. Pain is the ultimate catalyst

Scene 74

[groans]

[coughs]

Liu: Again

Cole: Whoa, whoa, whoa, hold on. Does it have to be him? I met a…

[grunting]

Kano: You know, I see a little bit of arcana there. Give me one more crack at it

Liu: Focus on the pain, Cole

Cole: I’m focusing! Nothing’s happening. It just hurts!

Kano: Oh, stick with it

Liu: Again

[groans, coughs]

[Kano sighs]

Kano: Yeah, you’re right. Nothing’s happening. (sighs) Could always laser you

[breathing heavily]

Scene 75

[sighs]

[soft music playing]

[Sonya sighs]

Sonya: What are you looking at? Mmm. They’re beautiful. You’re a lucky man

Cole: Thanks

Scene 76

Raiden: You have failed to find your arcana. Without it, you are a liability to the others

Cole: So, where did this come from? And why am I the only champion that had the marking since I was born?

Raiden: Your marking comes from your lineage, Cole

Cole: Lineage? I’m an orphan from the South Side of Chicago

Raiden: You’re a descendant of one of the greatest ninjas to ever walk the Earth. Hanzō Hasashi

Scene 77

[grunting]

Scene 78

Raiden: He was murdered along with his wife and eldest son by the same assassin that hunts you now. Sub-Zero

Scene 79

[grunts]

Raiden: (voice) The moment he died, Hanzō descended into the Netherrealm. The farthest reaches of hell, endlessly searching for revenge. But his bloodline lived on. I rescued Hanzō’s only surviving child and hid her in the one place he wouldn’t think to find her

Scene 80

Raiden: For centuries, the Hasashi marking has passed down through your ancestors. I had a hope the power in your bloodline was still strong in you. Now, I know that’s not the case. Go! Be with your family

Sonya: Cole, do not give up on this

Cole: I’m sorry

Scene 81

[rumbling]

Scene 82

[screeches]

Shang: Welcome. The great hunter Nitara. She's beautiful. Isn’t she?

Kabal: Yeah. That screech is a real turn-on

Shang: My loyal warriors. Kabal. General Reiko. I have seen the so-called champions of Earthrealm and they’re no match for all of you. We are on the precipice of victory and taking Earthrealm forever. But we must strike now. Raiden has prevented entry into his temple. I must find a way to bring his shield down in order to obliterate our opposition

Kabal: I think I can help. Did you see a guy down there, complete fucking asshole, answers to Kano?

Shang: Kano?

Kabal: Yeah, he’s the reason I live in an iron lung. He’s a low life piece of shit scumbag. You’re going to love him

[rumbling]

Shang: Prince Goro! It is an honor to have Shokan blood on our side. Now, we shall end this prophecy once and for all

Scene 83

Kabal: Well, well, well. You backstabbing, two-faced, ugly motherfucker

[Kano chuckling]

Kano: Kabal

Kabal: Hey, Kano, it’s been a while

Kano: You getting enough sleep, mate? Your eyes are a little redder than usual

Kabal: You’ve got a big mouth for someone who’s standing on the wrong side of the electric fence, tough guy

Kano: You working for the other fella? That wizard

Kabal: Working with him, not for him. And trust me, it has its perks

Kano: Like what?

Kabal: This is fucking tragic. Look at yourself. You used to be someone to fear. You’ve fallen down a long way since you led the Black Dragon

Kano: You don’t tell me about the Black Dragon. I am the Black Dragon

Kabal: Which one’s your boss? Let me guess, the blonde?

Kano: Is that mask cutting off your air supply, you dumb prick? I don’t take orders from anyone, Kabal

Kabal: Then you’re on the wrong side. Fight with us and you could have more money than you know what to do with. Hell, you could turn this old temple into your own casino if you wanted to. Just name your price, then double it, and double it again. What are you waiting for, asshole?

Kano: (clears throat) So, what would I need to do?

Scene 84

Cole: Just wait here

Scene 85

Scene 86

Sonya: What is that?

Kano: You know the problem with these new lightning sticks? They just don’t make 'em like they used to

[chuckles]

Kano: What, you didn’t think you’d actually change me, did ya?

Shang: The undoing of the prophecy has begun

[Liu Kang breathing shakily]

Liu: If we’re to die, it was supposed to be together

Raiden: I am sorry, Liu Kang

Liu: Without Kung Lao, Earthrealm is lost

Jax: Lord Raiden. Why couldn’t you save him?

Raiden: Elder Gods are forbidden from engaging in one realm’s war against another. It is my job to protect Earthrealm, but I cannot save every soul within it

Cole: No. It’s not over. We still need to fight

Raiden: Cole. The blood on this blade is your ancestor's. Hanzō Hasashi’s. I took it from him the day he died. Use it, and the spirit of Hanzō fights with you

Sonya: So, what’s the plan?

Cole: We need to fight smarter. We need to control the fight

Sonya: How? I mean, they’re better trained and better prepared

Jax: Plus, they don’t mind breaking the rules

Cole: We need to split them up. Lord Raiden, can you send anyone anywhere? Well, they don’t want a tournament. Let’s give 'em one, but let’s do it our way

Jax: Give me Reiko. I got a score to settle

Jax: Hey, big boy
