WATCH: Warner Bros. releases the new Mortal Kombat's super violent opening seven minutes
Take a look at Scorpion and Sub-Zero's first fight in the new movie!
The first Mortal Kombat movie was released in 1995, and it is - by all accounts - a pretty bad movie. It is also, bizarrely, still one of the best movies-based-on-a-video-game ever made, which really just goes some way to show how bad video game adaptations have been on the big screen in general.
In the interim, the video game series has gone from strength to strength, re-establishing itself recently as one of the best fighters around, so it was only going to be a matter of time before Hollywood would come calling again.
The new take on Mortal Kombat will arrive in American cinemas this Friday, as well as streaming service HBO Max (currently unavailable in Ireland), and to celebrate its impending release, Warner Bros. has revealed the first seven minutes of the movie.
Anyone concerned that this new take would be as bloodless as the 1995 adaptation will have their worries quickly quietened, as the blood, gore and guts run freely in this opening scene.
In short, don't watch this if you're of a sensitive disposition! The scene does show off two major characters, who will both be immediately recognisable to anyone who has played any of the games.
At the time of writing, the current plan for the release of Mortal Kombat over here is to have it arrive in cinemas once they're allowed to safely reopen.
