First images of 'Mortal Kombat' live-action movie reboot released
The Mortal Kombat live-action movie reboot is set to release this April 16 but we did not get any sneak peek at how the new adaptation of the iconic video game franchise will look like on the big screen; until today. Entertainment Weekly just released preview stills from the movie in an exclusive article. The official Twitter account of the Mortal Kombat movie followed suit by releasing a few more images:
According to the Entertainment Weekly article, the movie kicks off with a 10-minute opening sequence set in feudal Japan about the blood feud between the clans of Hanzo and Bi-Han, which ends in "a pretty nasty hand-to-hand combat" between the characters who eventually end up becoming Scorpion and Sub-Zero.
