Only one week to go till your favorite video game fighters enter the ring in Mortal Kombat!

Warner Bros. went straight for the jugular with this new take on Mortal Kombat. It brings the characters and brutal fatality scenes from the games to live-action thanks to some talented martial artists and actors – including Joe Taslim as Sub Zero and Hiroyuki Sanada as Scorpion. In this behind-the-scenes clip director Simon McQuoid and the cast talk about creating fight scenes that live up to the iconic video game – complete with “sickeningly violent” end scenes.


In case you missed the red band trailer (you’re going to have to log in for this one).


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 on April 23rd.
