By: John M Jerva

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!

Official Synopsis: In “Mortal Kombat,” 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?

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.
