Mortal Kombat arrives in theaters and on HBO Max in a couple of weeks, and a new featurette shines the spotlight on the cast. Warner Bros. Pictures has released a new behind-the-scenes that you can see below, which looks at the actors set to play the iconic characters from the franchise (and Cole Young).

The film is Simon McQuoid and stars Taslim, Ludi Lin, Jessica McNamee, Josh Lawson, Tadanobu Asano, Mehcad Brooks, Chin Han, Hiroyuki Sanada, Max Huang, Sisi Stringer and Lewis Tan. The reboot of the fighting game franchise’s film series will release day-and-date on theaters and HBO Max on April 23rd. It is described as follows:

Used to getting beaten for money, MMA fighter Cole Young is unaware of his legacy – or because Emperor Outworld Shang Tsung sent his best warrior, Sub- Zero, an otherworldly Cryomancer, to hunt Cole. Fearing for the safety of his family, Cole sets out to find Sonya Blade and Jax, a special forces major who carries the same strange dragon Cole was born with. Soon he finds himself in the temple of Lord Raiden, an Elder God and Protector of Earthrealm, who grants sanctuary to those who bear the mark. Here, Cole trains with seasoned warriors Liu Kang, Kung Lao, and devious mercenary Kano, as he prepares to take on Earth’s greatest champions against enemies of Outworld in a high-risk battle across the universe. But will Cole be under enough pressure to unlock his arcane – the immense power in his soul – in time to save his family and stop Outworld once and for all?
