First 7-minutes of Mortal Kombat released online! -------------------------------------------------
Warner Bros. Pictures and New Line Cinema have released the
first 7-minutes of the highly-anticipated Mortal Kombat movie
online! It features Hiroyuki Sanada's Scorpion vs Joe Taslim's
Sub-Zero in a medieval Japan setting that harkens back to old
school Akira Kurosawa films, setting a very unique tone for a
video game movie. Check out the RED BAND NSFW first 7-minutes

First Seven Minutes: (7mins 51secs) <https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TNlb6ac75AA>
The diverse international cast of Mortal Kombat includes Joe
Taslim as Sub-Zero; Ludi Lin as Liu Kang; Jessica McNamee as
Sonya Blade; Josh Lawson as Kano; Tadanobu Asano as Raiden;
Mehcad Brooks as Jackson "Jax" Bridges; Chin Han as Shang
Tsung; Hiroyuki Sanada as Scorpion; Max Huang as Kung Lao;
Sisi Stringer as Mileena and Lewis Tan as the leading
character Cole Young.
Inspired by Midway Games' best-selling title based on an
original idea by Ed Boon and John Tobias, the film centers
around 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?
Directed by Simon McQuoid from a screenplay written by Greg
Russo and Dave Callaham, the film is produced by James Wan
(The Conjuring universe) and Todd Garner (Into the Storm,
Tag) with Larry Kasanoff, E. Bennett Walsh, Michael Clear
and Jeremy Stein serving as executive producers. The
creative team is also comprised of director of photography
Germain McMicking (True Detective, Top of the Lake: China
Girl), production designer Naaman Marshall (Underwater,
Servant), editor Scott Gray (Top of the Lake, Daffodils),
and costume designer Cappi Ireland (Lion, The Rover).
Mortal Kombat opens in theaters and on HBO Max this Friday,
