We’ve seen some great video game rivalries over the years. Ken and Ryu, Mario and Bowser. However, none more biter than Sub-Zero and Scorpion. Their conflict goes much deeper than being members of opposing ninja clans, as the video below shows, it’s much more personal. With the release of the Mortal Kombat reboot just days away, the first seven minutes of the film have been posted for our enjoyment. You can check it out below.

Well done. Excellent. Outstanding.
Seriously, I thoroughly enjoyed that clip and it has definitely raised my excitement and expectations for the film. Being a longtime fan and player I hope this film will erase the just awful films of the 1990s. As I’ve said before, Suz-Zero and Scorpion are the core of the franchise to me (yes, I am aware Liu Kang is the hero of the first game). So to give these two characters a fitting backstory shows me the filmmakers know what they’re doing this time around.
Hopefully, the film will be well-received and successful enough to bring us an entire Mortal Kombat cinematic universe. There’s plenty of content for an entire string of films, and with this film looking like it will turn the view of the franchise around, well, we may just get that universe.
