We are officially less than one week out from the premiere of the eagerly awaited reboot Mortal Kombat which has been a virtual long time in the making. Ever since the trailer debuted, fans have been losing their minds over what could be an honest to true interpretation of the classic video game franchise as the film has been said to be ultra-violent and include fatalities galore.
In preparation of the release, Warner Bros has unveiled a brand new clip which shows off the classic showdown between age old enemies Bi-Han AKA Sub-Zero, played by The Raid’s Joe Taslim, and Hanzo Hasashi AKA Scorpion who is being portrayed by genre favorite Hiroyuki Sanada. This clip is definitely an action dripping one minute of the fight action we are in store for so if you don’t want to be spoiled when the film hits next Friday, then proceed below at your own risk.
If you can’t wait, then by all means, indulge in the awesomeness of these two iconic characters trowing down with adrenaline pumping results!
The ensemble cast of classic characters also 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. Also featured are Max Huang as Kung Lao; Sisi Stringer as Mileena; Matilda Kimber as Emily Young; and Laura Brent as Allison Young.
Simon McQuoid makes his directorial debut with this hotly anticipated film with 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”) serving as producers.
