Hiroyuki Sanada’s Scorpion Takes No Prisoners in a New Teaser Clip from MORTAL KOMBAT!

By: John M Jerva

It’s just 16 seconds long but we get a good idea of just how good Hiroyuki Sanada’s Scorpion is in the new version of Mortal Kombat. Warner Bros and New Line have unleashed a fast and furious clip from the April 16th release which sees warriors from all over gather for a tournament that will determine the fates of numerous realms. Check out Sanada as he kills without mercy below!

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?

From director Simon McQuoid Mortal Kombat once again cements the eternity led feud between Scorpion (Hiroyuki Sanada) and Sub-Zero (Joe Taslim) and the rest of the cast which includes Sonya Blade (Jessica McNamee), Mileena (Sisi Stringer), Kano (Josh Lawson), Liu Kang (Ludi Lin), Kung Lao (Max Huang), Shang Tsung (Chin Han) and Raiden (Tadanobu Asano).

Watch the new promo clip and get ready to “Get Over Here!” on April 16th when Mortal Kombat hits cinemas and HBOMAX simultaneously!
