First 7 Minutes of ‘Mortal Kombat’ Teases Centuries Old Rivalry

Apr 20

Three days to go till the iconic video game hits the big screen again. Check out the opening scene featuring Scorpion and Sub-Zero!

If they keep the story simple and fight choreography lives up to the hype, this is going to be a fantastic ride for martial arts and action fans. I can’t wait for the Hiroyuki Sanada vs Joe Taslim scenes. Bonus points for Ben Wallfisch’s score (I thought it was Junkie XL at first) that takes inspiration from the previous movies and the games.

This is an unedited rated R clip with blood/gore – it is definitely NSFW.


If you prefer a full-screen experience you can log in to YouTube and watch the first seven minutes here.

The new Mortal Kombat cast includes Ludi Lin as Liu Kang, Hiroyuki Sanada as Scorpion, Chin Han as Shang Tsung, Joe Taslim as Sub-Zero, Jessica McNamee as Sonya Blade, Josh Lawson as Kano, Mehcad Brooks as Jax, Tadanobu Asano as Raiden, Max Huang as Kung Lao, Elissa Cadwell as Nitara, and Sisi Stringer as Mileena. Lewis Tan is playing Cole Young, a new character with an MMA background.


Mortal Kombat arrives on HBOMax and in theaters this Friday.
