We’re just a few days away from the release of Mortal Kombat in theaters and on HBO Max, and the full opening scene has been released. You can see the full seven minute-plus video below, featuring Hiroyuki Sanada’s Hanzo Hasashi (aka Scorpion) as his village is attacked by the Lin Kuei.

The film stars Joe Taslim, Ludi Lin, Jessica McNamee, Josh Lawson, Asano, Mehcad Brooks, Chin Han, Hiroyuki Sanada, Max Huang, Sisi Stringer and Lewis Tan. Directed by Simon McQuoid from a script by Greg Russo and Dave Callaham, it releases in theaters and on HBO Max on April 23rd and is described as follows:

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?
