Mortal Kombat is less than a month away, and a new TV spot features footage of the opening scene as Scorpion battles the Lin Keui. You can see the clip below courtesy of Arrow in the Head. The film arrives on April 16th day-and-date in theaters and on HBO Max and is directed by Simon McQuoid from a script by Greg Russo and Dave Callaham. It stars Joe Taslim, Ludi Lin, Jessica McNamee, Josh Lawson, Tadanobu Asano, Mehcad Brooks, Chin Han, Hiroyuki Sanada, Max Huang, Sisi Stringer and Lewis Tan and 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?
